7 week update

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far along? 7 weeks

Size of the Baby? a blueberry!

Maternity Clothes? no no

Gender? It's pretty much 50/50 ... a lot more people have joined the blue train, but i'm not movin! i truly believe baby bee is a SHE

Movement? Definitely not.


Cravings? I had that major ice cream craving the other night. i only ate a few bites of it and then became totally uninterested. ABSOLUTELY NO MEAT. if matt mentions meat, i get sick. i am about to get sick typing the word. About all I'm surviving on is potatoes (baked or mashed), biscuits, grilled cheese, gingerale, and goldfish.

Symptoms? NAUSEA. NAUSEA. NAUSEA. i rarely throw up, but I gag all the time and have the "spinning feeling" like if i move a muscle i'm going to get sick. im still breaking out! not AS bad on my face, but a lot on my upper back. my bras are getting smaller *rolls eyes*

What I miss? it would be nice to have a really cold beer in this heat. but i definitely dont MISS it yet. :)

Milestones? 7 weeks :) and seeing the baby at our first ultrasound and watching that little heart beat! 4 more weeks til our next doctor's appointment!

Babycenter stats: The big news this week: Hands and feet are emerging from developing arms and legs -- although they look more like paddles at this point than the tiny, pudgy extremities you're daydreaming about holding and tickling. Technically, your baby is still considered an embryo and has something of a small tail, which is an extension of her tailbone. The tail will disappear within a few weeks, but that's the only thing getting smaller. Your baby has doubled in size since last week and now measures half an inch long, about the size of a blueberry.
