6 Weeks for the 3rd time!

That's right, this is my 3rd pregnancy that has made it to 6 weeks! Well actually according to the measurement from my ultrasound on Monday I'm 6 weeks and 2 days, but I am going to stick to my original due date (based on ovulation) until I have my dating scan on Aug. 3.

Still not much in the way of stats:
Weight: +1.8 lb
Next Appt: July 18

The weight besides being normal fluctuation for me in a matter of a week, is also most likely to do with my issues of expelling waste. In 4 short days (I'm trying to convince myself here, humor me) we will have a follow up ultrasound to make sure the heart rate is increasing.

As far as symptoms goes, I have them... Some times just the thought of something makes me want to run to the bathroom. Smells that I like I have been finding over powering and nauseating. Bloated, well just look at the photo below. And exhausted isn't even the word for how I feel when I get home at night!

Although I don't feel ready to be telling people I'm pregnant, I would rather have them thinking I'm pregnant rather than thinking, "wow, she lost that weight and gained it back." or "she's chubby/fat."

This is what's going on with the little Bean according to Baby.Center:

This week's major developments: The nose, mouth, and ears that you'll spend so much time kissing in eight months are beginning to take shape. If you could see into your uterus, you'd find an oversize head and dark spots where your baby's eyes and nostrils are starting to form. His emerging ears are marked by small depressions on the sides of the head, and his arms and legs by protruding buds. His heart is beating about 100 to 160 times a minute — almost twice as fast as yours — and blood is beginning to course through his body. His intestines are developing, and the bud of tissue that will give rise to his lungs has appeared. His pituitary gland is forming, as are the rest of his brain, muscles, and bones. Right now, your baby is a quarter of an inch long, about the size of a lentil.

The Binkies in the garbage didn't last very long. I found Lillian in the bathroom hiding with them in her mouth after digging them out. Thankfully there wasn't much in the way of garbage in the can. Just some paper stuff. I was way too tired to deal with the screaming and crying last night so B sanitized them and we decided that when we tell her about the baby we will see if she wants to give them to her little brother or sister. The first trimester when lack of energy is so high, is not the time to be fighting a strong willed toddler for her binkies! I really can't wait to tell her about the baby though, I think she will be very excited!

  1. I can't blame you. I think I would rather have people thinking I am pregnant, than thinking I gained back weight I lost! I am glad everything is going so well!
