7 Weeks and Bumpdate

How far along:

7 Weeks

How big is baby:
The size of a blueberry

Maternity Clothes:

Nope, but more pants are tight.  It's easier to wear long shirts and keep my pants unbuttoned.  I'm glad it's getting cooler because I have lots of cute dresses for Fall.

Nothing expected for a while

Food Cravings:
Healthy Food and Rolaids after most meals.

Food Aversions:
Anything fried or unhealthy.  Carbs and Dairy are NOT my friend!

Brandon is still convinced that we're having a boy, along with everyone else!
Only 11 more weeks to go until we find out!

Tender and enlarged breasts, fatigue, weepiness, mood swings (when I'm hungry), acid reflux (when I'm hungry), indigestion (after most meals), slight nausea, increased-superhuman sense of smell, upset tummy when I have dairy products,  healthy food cravings, fried food aversions, excess saliva-DROOLING at night and some during the day, somewhat blurred vision.

What do I miss:
Nothing!  Being pregnant has made me so happy.

Best moment of the week:
Seeing "The Sneak's" heartbeat on the ultrasound.

What I am looking forward to:
Our upcoming appointment on Tuesday with Dr. Allemand and our third ultrasound.  Also looking forward to being released to an OB for our boring pregnancy!!

We have seen "The Sneak's" heartbeat!

Our precious Baby Sneakers is now "10,000 times bigger than he/she was at conception!  New brain cells are being generated at the rate of 100 cells per minute.  'The Sneak's' mouth and tongue are forming this week and so are the arm and leg buds, which are beginning to sprout into paddle-like appendages and to divide into hand, arm, and shoulder segments-and leg, knee, and foot segments.  Also, in place now are baby's kidneys, and they're poised to begin their important work of waste management."
from What to Expect When You're Expecting


Not a lot of changes from last week's pictures.

Here's to Week 7!


  1. Yaaaa for 7 weeks! Praying this pregnancy continues to be happy and healthy!!

  2. When you are released to your regular OB. You will miss all those pictures you get from the Ultrasound. You need one of those machines you can place on your tummy so you can start hearing him when he starts to move around and you can play him music and talk to him.

  3. A lot of times you can go to Virginia College's nursing program and get a discounted ultrasound... I think that's what I remember.

  4. Praying that you have an uneventful pregnancy.

  5. "Waste management" Hee hee. I wonder if you will have more frequent trips to the restroom now too? ;) Thanks for sharing your progressing bump photos! Can't wait to see that big mamma belly!

  6. So so exciting!! Enjoy those pregnancy symptoms, it means everything is working the way it's supposed to!! Can't wait to see your next update :)

  7. Hey! I nominated you for the Liebster Award! Check it out =)
