i figured i could start up on the bi-weekly pregnancy surveys since i'm at an even week interval. i'm just going to cross my fingers and hope really hard that everything is healthy and good and i can continue doing these for the next 36 weeks.
how far along: 4 weeks yesterday
how big is baby: the size of a poppy seed
weight gain / loss: yesterday i weighed in at 144.2. that is going to be my official starting weight for this pregnancy, so the gains and losses will be based on that
symptoms: nothing yet as far as i can tell. let's see how long it stays that way...
cravings / aversions: i've been craving a lot of water the past 2 days. and i've been grossed out every time i drive past rudy's bbq. not sure if it's the smell of bbq or bacon or what, but it's not appetizing
movement: our little pumpkin is still an embryo, so no movement for us yet
gender: i think we could know this somewhere around the first week of june
belly button: my stomach has hardly changed, let alone my belly button! :-)
sleep: this past weekend i was getting around 12 hours of sleep each night, i didn't want to wake up at all. but since i've been at work, it's been a solid 8 hours and i haven't had to get up in the middle of the night yet.
what i'm looking forward to: my obgyn coming back from vacation so i can schedule an ultrasound! i should be 8 weeks on march 7, so we'll probably have to wait a month, but i'm ready to get it on the calendar.
what i miss: we're not in the missing stages about anything right now. we're too dang excited!!!
highlights this past week: finding out i was pregnant! first via home pregnancy test, then today my doctor called and confirmed from the bloodwork- there is a bun in the oven!!!! also, i've been taking pregnancy tests everyday since i found out because i have them leftover and don't want them to go to waste. the lines have all been pretty light but today it was significantly darker. it's like the test is shouting "yes jill, you are pregnant" now, haha. another highlight has been my husband. oh my word, he is the cutest thing. i had the blood test done yesterday to confirm the pregnancy, so i called to tell him i was waiting on the results to confirm. he goes "well what did they say? is everything alright? is the baby good?" and i said it wasn't that kind of test yet, right now it's just to confirm that i really am. he is so concerned and so sweet. just wow, he has been amazing me these past few days. :-)
life is so wonderful right now!!!!!!!!!
