5 Weeks!!!

Well there's one more week down! I started freaking out lat night cause I've had a continuous feeling down there. I don't want to say it's a cramp cause it doesn't hurt really, its more of just an annoying feeling. Of course B wasn't home with me so it made things worse for me.

Even though I was so exhausted after work yesterday I went to the mall and got some books:
Belly Laughs, cause I've heard nothing but good things about it
Your Pregnancy Week by Week, because I can't help but want all the information I can get.
Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy - mainly because I love the actual size pictures and I think it will be a great reference book for both B and I assuming I can get him to read it.

Now my next question, why are all the Dad-To-Be books written by men. I want a book that explains to my husband the things I need him to understand about my feelings and what I'm going through. Not advice like "Tell her you quit smoking and find a really good place to hide those cigarettes" Are you kidding me!!!

Ok enough of that. I also bought new sheets and a quilt for our new bed, I'm so excited! The sheets were on sale, 2 king sets of 300 count for only $60. Most of the 200 count 1 sets were at least $40. I suppose we didn't need the quilt because we already have a king comforter that my MIL got us for Christmas, but it's heavy and I'm not ready for that yet!

Now I need your opinions! I have changed the image above my posts to a fetus growth chart this week, and I also found a neat ticker that gives the important date (the pic in the corner changes with the weeks I believe, maybe months) but I'm not sure how I should set it up. So vote so I don't have to make a decision, LOL!


  1. Hi Brandi, I was looking on the What to Expect pregnancy forums and saw that you live in the Syracuse area. I'm in the Syracuse area too (Camillus) and I'm about 6wks along. Just wanted to say congrats on your pregnancy and good luck.

  2. Brandi, I like the new header! Surely that new feeling in your belly is bean making room, even at this early stage. Congrats on 5 weeks. Let us know how you like the books. :o)
