6 Weeks and Bumpdate

How far along:

6 weeks

How big is baby:
the size of a sweet pea

Maternity Clothes:
My pants are snug and I'm most comfortable in dresses.  I don't think most pregnant women are as bloated this early, but I'm sure it has to do with ALL of the hormones I've been on for some time.

Nada. We have a long way to go until I can feel "The Sneak" moving around in my tummy.

Food Cravings:
Fruit smoothies and popsicles

Food Aversions:
anything fried

Brandon is convinced that we're going to have a boy

Tender and enlarged breasts, fatigue, intense sense of smell, heartburn, acid reflux, indigestion, weepiness, emotional, mood swings when I'm hungry, intense drooling

What do I miss:

Best moment of the week:
Seeing the sac on the ultrasound

What am I looking forward to:
Our appointment next week and seeing the first glimpses of Baby Sneakers

"This week, the baby's jaws, cheeks, and chin will develop.  Small black dots on the face will form the eyes, and a small bump on the front of the head will turn into the nose.  Taking shape this week are the baby's kidneys, liver, and lungs.  The baby's heart should be beating 80 bpm and getting faster each day."
from What to Expect When You're Expecting 

We've made it to 6 weeks.  Even though I had spotting and bright red blood, it stopped.  We are blessed and thankful for this precious baby!

I thought we would start early with the bump pictures.  Right now, I have the "IVF Bump" from all of the hormones!


  1. Yay for no more bleeding!

    Intense drooling huh? That sounds sexy! ;-)

  2. So are you drooling mid-conversation, or when you're just standing at the lights waiting to cross the road? Lol! This definitely requires more information Court!! You can't just write "intense drooling" and leave us all hanging! Hahaha!

    1. Hah Ali! When I wake up, my pillow is wet! That's how I know if I've actually been asleep sometimes. So far I have not drooled in public. =)

  3. Happy 6 weeks and hooray for no more bleeding! That's too funny that one of your "symptoms" is intense drooling. ;) I have caught myself drooling during the night when I'm completely worn out so maybe that's what's going on with you. After all, you're growing a baby in there! And it just has to be exhausting for you body - but definitely a good of exhausting!
