I figured 7 weeks was a perfect time to "journal"...
How far along: 7 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I’m down one pound.
First symptom: Mild cramping
Who was the first person, other than DH, that you told: My BFF back in Austin, T. It was her birthday, so I called to wish her happy birthday and give her the news! Last year on my 4 year wedding anniversary she told us she was PG! Her baby is 4 months now.
Will you find out the sex: Yes, definitely! At first I had a Boy “feeling”, but now I catch myself saying “her”.
Sleep: I’ve been going to sleep a little earlier than normal – 9 – 10 pm. Recently, I haven’t been sleeping well. I constantly wake up and go pee, then, can’t go back to sleep.
Best moment this week: Designing the signs we’re going to use for our reveal to the in-laws. More details about those coming soon!
Food cravings: I’m positive this is a craving, because I don’t normally have a sweet tooth.... cake! ...and cookies! ...and ice cream!
Have you bought any baby stuff: Nothing other than the onesie and bib I bought for DH the day we got our BFP!
What I miss: Feeling normal and energized.
What I am looking forward to: u/s on Thursday, telling our immediate families on Thursday and Friday, and spending the weekend with my in-laws before my first appt on Monday!!
