How far along: 7 weeks.
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a playing die currently.
Must have items: Nothing yet, besides lots and lots of water and sleep. It’s been crazy how much water I have needed since finding out we were pregnant. I used to drink maybe one cup a day. Now, I can drink three cups just at lunch or dinner.
Sleep: I can sleep like it’s my job currently. I love love love sleep. And, let me assure you pregnant sleep has been so wonderful.
Cravings: I could eat Japanese and Mexican food literally alternating every other day. My husband on the other hand, is extremely tired of both. I try to eat one of them for lunch once a week to try to control my craving while not making him eat them too. I’ve also been loving water with oranges in it, but that’s just to add some flavor to my water.
Definitely no movement yet, but I can’t wait until there is.
Genders: We are doing chromosomal testing on January 19th at our next appointment and I have read that that test will tell us the gender. But, we are doing a gender reveal and won’t know until that is planned. I literally have no inkling either way. My momma radar isn’t working at all on the gender of our baby.
Challenges this week: Christmas was definitely challenging this week. Being exhausted, but wanting to be fully present at each Christmas celebration was hard. I was having the beginnings of a cold, but drank my weight it feels like in orange juice, and thankfully ran that off very fast.
Best moment this week: It’s just been a great week overall. We have been blessed by both of our families, and it’s been amazing to hear them all say things about next year when we have a baby for Christmas. It’s also really nice to have put our news on Facebook so everyone is in the loop and we don’t have to keep it a secret anymore. We struggled while trying to keep it a secret.
Can’t wait until I have more fun pregnancy things to share!
