baby alex: 6 weeks

time to start the bi-weekly posts!

how far along: 6 weeks

how big is baby: the size of a lentil (1/4 of an inch)

weight gain / loss: i remembered to weigh myself when i first found out i was pregnant, and came in at 142.4 lbs. that's about 2 pounds lighter than when i first got pregnant with leila. today i am 143.4 lbs thanks to my saltine addiction.

symptoms: this pregnancy feels different than previous pregnancies. i've been having crazy insomnia and a recurring dream that i'm pregnant with twins. this pregnancy is bizarre

cravings / aversions: again different than previous pregnancies. i crave sweets, but food becomes too rich for me very fast. i eat salty carbs nonstop.

movement: too early

gender: we won't know until april, probably around jake's birthday. in the recurring twin dream, i'm pregnant with two girls. we'll see if any piece of that is true

belly button: no change

sleep: worst. insomnia. ever. my brain runs a zillion miles a minute and i can't fall asleep. when i do fall asleep, i wake up 10 times in the night. repeat, bizarre pregnancy.

what i'm looking forward to: my first appointment on tuesday. i'm hoping everything is healthy. i also hope they will have me come in for another ultrasound a couple weeks later. i can't handle having a month between ultrasounds after what happened last time.

what i miss: not missing out on anything yet

highlights this past week: thankful to be pregnant again
