My age: 26

How far along: 7 weeks

How big is baby: the size of a blueberry

Exercise/Activity Level: I worked out about 5 days last week.  I didn’t do any running though since I felt too tired to run.  Actually though, just this morning I did run on the treadmill and it felt good.  On Saturday we skied a full 9am-3pm day at Copper Mountain with friends.  I slept the entire way home and then took a nap at home too.  Also lifted weights this week.

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: Unfortunately I don’t sleep through the night anymore.  I wake up multiple times each night to go to the bathroom.  Also, my CRAZY dreams will keep me from feeling rested.

Best moment of the week: Seeing our little baby on the ultrasound on Friday!  We could see the heart beating!  It was amazing!

Food cravings: I’ve been eating fruit/maple oatmeal and a strawberry banana smoothie every day for breakfast.  I have morning sickness, and these foods tend to keep me feeling a tad better.

Food aversions: Chicken.  How weird….I am a chicken girl, but I have been so turned off every time I see or smell chicken.


  1. MORNING SICKNESS!  I vomited multiple times the other morning.  I have to eat crackers in bed before I get up.  Nausea is REALLY bad.  I am now keeping bags and a bowl in my car in case I throw up on my commute.
  2. Huge boobs.
  3. Exhaustion.  I sleep A LOT.  I go to bed around 8pm when I get home from work.
  4. Constipation.  Prunes are now my friend.
  5. Moodiness.  I cry and get annoyed easily.

Movement: None.

Gender: Unknown.

What I’m looking forward to: In about a week we will be taking a weekend trip to visit my family in the midwest.  I can’t WAIT to tell them about the pregnancy!  So excited!

What I’m nervous about: Morning sickness.  I feel nervous that I’m going to be puking at work. 

What I miss: Not being nauseated all the time.

Next appointment: Friday, March 8th.
