Six Weeks


{This post was written on September 20th and was saved as a draft until we shared our good news with everyone.}

How far along? Six weeks and four days as of today.

Baby's size? Baby is the size of a Ladybug. 

Baby's nickname? Still Dragon Baby. 

Maternity clothes? Not yet. 

Exercise? Still trying to get my 10,000 steps per day in. So far I've missed two days. I made up for one of those days the next day and the second day was last night. I only miss if I'm not feeling well enough to go out. I informed my trainer of my pregnancy so we've dropped the weights a little but still lifting. And he still wants me to get in my 40 miles this month for my half marathon training. So far I am at 16.6 miles so I still have quite a few to go. I'll be on vacation later this week and early next so I'll be sure to catch up then. 

Sleep? Saturday morning I was wide awake from 1 am to 3 am. Other than that I've been sleeping pretty well. Going to sleep around 9 and waking up a little before 6. I've been getting in naps on the weekends too.

Best moment this week? Being offered a job that will allow me to work from home. I interviewed prior to finding out I was pregnant. God is so awesome. 

Miss anything? Energy in the afternoons and evenings. 

Movement? None so far. 

Food cravings? I've been craving savory foods. Meat {mostly in the mornings}, potatoes and beans. Sweet foods don't appeal to me right now. 

Anything making you queasy or sick? I'm finding that I'll cook something and then it either isn't good at all or I feel sick when I think about eating it. Friday night I couldn't even finish the chicken I made. And Monday night I felt sick when I thought about eating the steak we had leftover from the night before.  

Gender? Unknown. I will be thrilled either way. 

Labor Signs? None. 

Symptoms? Oh, where do I start? Still bloated and gassy but not as bad as last week. Lower back pain. Monday I had a sharp pain hit me in my lower back and it actually took my breath away because of how bad it was. I had heartburn last week for the first time. I had no idea what it was. I just felt cramping and burning and I told my friend what I was feeling and she told me it was heartburn. I hope it doesn't come back because that was awful! All of my symptoms come on in the afternoons and evenings too. I always wake up feeling great.

Wedding rings on or off? On. 

Happy or moody most of the time? I've noticed some mood swings with my husband. Sorry, babe! But for the most part, I'm in a good mood. 

Looking forward to? I'll be on vacation as of Friday! And I'm still looking forward to my first doctor's appointment so we can share our news.
