How far along:  
4 weeks (and 4 days)

How big is Baby:

The size of an appleseed/sesame seed/ mustard seed

Maternity Clothes:
No.  But my pants have been snug for quite some time already


I will not be able to feel the baby move for a while.  For now, I just have slight cramping each day from my uterus growing to accommodate the baby(ies)

Food cravings: 

I had my first craving on Sunday evening-it was for Cheez-It crackers.  I carried the box with me to work yesterday and snacked all day long!

Food aversions: 

Anything fried makes me sick.  Cheese is now more disgusting than ever.  I can think about a food, and if it doesn't sound good, I start feeling icky and nauseated.


It's going to be a while before we know if it's a boy or girl.


fatigue, slight cramping (especially when standing), emotional moments, quick to become hungry, waking up early, frequent urination, tender and enlarged breasts.

What do I miss: Nothing!  This is the most amazing feeling in the world.

Best moment this week: 

We were able to tell everyone that we are pregnant.

What I am looking forward to: 

We have another blood test (Beta #2) on Friday and we'll have a clearer idea of when we'll have our first ultrasound.


There really is a baby growing in my tummy.  I am truly pregnant after two (plus) years of trying to conceive.  After so many delays, cancellations, surgeries, etc. we are going to have a baby!


  1. Love that you can do pregnancy updates now!!! So happy for you, when is your first ultrasound???? Can't wait to find out one or two!

  2. I am so thrilled to get to read pregnancy updates. Your enthusiasm and excitement literally leaps off the screen.


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
