5 Weeks!

1 week down, 35 more to go!!!

Not much in the way of stats right now...

Weight: -.4lb

Next Dr appt: July 11 (only 4 more days!)

Last night I was feeling a bit worried because I never felt sick at all yesterday. Although I did feel bloated every time I ate something (which isn't much before I feel stuffed), it isn't quite as reassuring as the nausea. My little bean must have heard my thoughts though because I was up 4 times to go to the bathroom last night and several times this morning I'm pretty sure if I had been in front of a toilet I would have been sick.

I'm really not sure how long I will be able to keep this pregnancy a secret. Even though I'm just extremely bloated, I look like I have a belly already...

What's going on with Bean this week according to Baby.Center:

Deep in your uterus your embryo is growing at a furious pace. At this point, he's about the size of a sesame seed, and he looks more like a tiny tadpole than a human. He's now made up of three layers — the ectoderm, the mesoderm, and the endoderm — which will later form all of his organs and tissues.
The neural tube — from which your baby's brain, spinal cord, nerves, and backbone will sprout — is starting to develop in the top layer, called the ectoderm. This layer will also give rise to his skin, hair, nails, mammary and sweat glands, and tooth enamel.
His heart and circulatory system begin to form in the middle layer, or mesoderm. (This week, in fact, his tiny heart begins to divide into chambers and beat and pump blood.) The mesoderm will also form your baby's muscles, cartilage, bone, and subcutaneous (under skin) tissue.
The third layer, or endoderm, will house his lungs, intestines, and rudimentary urinary system, as well as his thyroid, liver, and pancreas. In the meantime, the primitive placenta and umbilical cord, which deliver nourishment and oxygen to your baby, are already on the job.
