PREGNANCY WEEK 7
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.
- 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.
- Huge boobs.
- Exhaustion. I sleep A LOT. I go to bed around 8pm when I get home from work.
- Constipation. Prunes are now my friend.
- Moodiness. I cry and get annoyed easily.
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.
