PREGNANCY WEEK 6
My age: 26
How far along: 6 weeks
How big is baby: the size of a lentil bean
Exercise/Activity Level: This past week I did pretty well working out. I put in three days of cardio at the gym, one day of running outside, and one day of skiing (fresh powder, I might add!!! ….which was amazing but quickly exhausting) In general I feel more tired while exercising.
Maternity clothes: None yet. Still wearing regular clothes. Although I do feel bloated some days giving me a muffin top 🙂
Stretch marks: None.
Belly button: Innie.
Sleep: Sleep has already started to be affected. I used to sleep like a rock, and lately I wake up multiple times at night. Sometimes it is to go to the bathroom, and others it is just waking up and falling back asleep.
Best moment of the week: Skiing powder at Breckenridge. We got up super early on Saturday and got on the first chair, giving us first tracks!! It was phenomenal!
Food cravings: No official cravings, but I have had homemade popcorn a few days this week. Plus Chick-Fil-A twice last week. Yummy.
Food aversions: Eric made bacon on Sunday morning and I just about passed out from the aroma. I made him open windows on a cold winter day!
- Swollen and achy breasts
- Feeling more tired
- Sleeping/lying around more than usual
What I’m looking forward to: In two and a half weeks from now Eric and I are going hom to Indiana to see my family. I’m excited to share the news with them about our little baby in person!!
What I’m nervous about: Work. I feel like I work too much and need to be more deliberate about asking to cut back hours.
What I miss: Having more energy.
Next appointment: Friday, February 15, 2pm FIRST ULTRASOUND!
