7 weeks- I think. :)

My first doctors appointment is in a week from today!  I am so excited and I can't wait! I am praying we get to hear the heartbeat and get to see the little blueberry on the big screen! :)

How have I been feeling since the announcement? LIKE POOP!!! :) I felt fine until Mothers day, and that is when the sickness started and has been pretty much non stop. I have had 2 days (which includes today) where I feel better, definitely not perfect, but I'm not miserable. I love getting a little break!  It helps me catch up with everything I have been slacking on! My husband has been amazing in letting me relax and do my thing for me to feel better. He isn't much to baby me, which you know... I would love to be baby'd! :) But I know he understands how I am feeling and lets me be lazy. Which I really appreciate!!

It is hard feeling like poop, because my husbands schedule has really picked up and he has so many things to do and so little time to do them now, that I feel bad that I can't help him out more. I am hoping I can get the hang of this all day sickness thing I got going on, and kick it in to gear for my husband.

symptoms of pregnancy I have:
- bloat! Today is the first day i have been able to button my pants in about a week!! :) Thanks Tums!
-constipation. enough said.
-nausea- oh man! I feel sick all the time! People at work probably think i am a freak, when I get super nauseas I take a deep breath in and out, well I end up doing that quite frequently. hehe.
- acid-y i feel like I may have acid reflux a little bit, the tums seems to be helping.
-my boobs have grown! My boobs are huge already! But yep, they grew!

I also am wearing sea bands to help with the nausea, they are definitely helping me get my personality back! They don't work 100% but I know it would be a lot worse without wearing them! (i've tried)

I haven't been as tired as i was in the beginning, or as tired as I thought I would be!  I even tried to nap yesterday because I was feeling crummy, and I couldn't! so I just lay there.

I haven't gained any weight yet! Which I am so grateful for! Especially since I have discovered eating helps with the nausea. My weight goal right now is to make it out of the first trimester without gaining any weight. (just my goal, I am still aiming to eat super healthy, and I am overweight, so I know the doctors would be ok with it, and I am not restricting anything too much, just aiming to keep the junk out!)

I love being able to experience all of these! Even though it is unpleasant and difficult, I am so grateful that God has given me and Jordan this blessing and am brought to tears at just how thankful I am for God and allowing me to experience this!

Next week I think I will start making weekly "bumpdates" after I have my doctors appointment! :)


  1. congrats!!! hope you start feeling better soon & get to hear that sweet little heartbeat at your next appointment!

  2. Hope you start feeling better soon! It will be great to hear more as you move further along in the pregnancy. I'm sorry I haven't been in touch more but life has been pretty crazy. I did my first showing with my photography and the response was crazy. I wasn't expecting that type of a response! The highlight had to be when someone said one of my sunsets looked like a page out of National Geographic. I was very flattered! Anyway it's given me a real boost to put myself out there more. Take it easy!

    1. that is soo awesome Ross!! your work is great!
