PREGNANCY WEEK 7 – March 7, 2015
My age: 28
How far along: 7 weeks
How big is baby: the size of a blueberry
Events of this week: On Sunday I completed my first pregnant half marathon (9th half marathon, but first pregnant one). I felt great despite the 20 degree temperature and long 2-mile-long hill. I was happy with my finish time of 2:13. This week, I also had a small birthday celebration a few days early at my house since I’ll be out of town on my actual birthday. I had 7 of my girlfriends over and we hung out, talked, ate and stayed up until 3:00 a.m. It was fun!
Symptoms: Tired, nauseous, moody, bloated, crazy dreams, bloated belly
Exercise/Activity: Ran my half marathon, and then I honestly took a break from exercise for most of the week. I did run 3 milers twice at the end of the week in preps for bikini time in Cancun.
Sleep: Tired all the time, but sleeping fairly well at night despite crazy dreams.
Maternity clothes: No.
Stretch marks: No.
Belly Button: In.
Food cravings: Orange pop (diet), carbs
Food aversions: None.
Best Moment of the Week: Completing my first ever pregnant half marathon!
Worst Moment of the Week: None.
What I’m looking forward to: Our trip to Cancun tomorrow. Can’t wait to spend some time alone with Eric relaxing on the beach for 5 days.
What I’m nervous about/praying for: This is my first time leaving Winter overnight. I am prayful that she and I would both do well being apart this week. She will be having a lot of fun at home with Grandpa and Grandma. I surely will be enjoying myself in Cancun!
What I miss: Nothing.
Next appointment: I called yesterday and got my first midwife appointment scheduled for Tuesday, 3/17/15 at 10:15 a.m. St. Patrick’s Day! We will have an ultrasound that day.
