5 Weeks

I'm crampy and bloated but I feel great so far! It feels good to feel that something is going on in my body - like this just isn't all in my head lol. This still feels surreal and I will feel so much better once we hear the heart beat on 12/29. Here is a little pregnancy questionnaire that I hope to do each week...

How far along? 5 weeks & 4 days

Maternity clothes? While TTC I lost a jean size and now my new "skinny" jeans are feeling a bit snug but I refuse to go back to my old size at week 5! I had an awesome coupon for Gap Maternity and I ended up placing an order for a pair of jeans and a couple shirts. I was a little nervous ordering these but I couldn't pass up the great sale so let's hope I will still need them in a few weeks.

Stretch marks? No and let's hope not for a really long time!

Sleep? I have been experiencing never ending cramps (similar to AF cramps) that wake me up throughout the night. As long as there is no blood, I will take these cramps!

Best moment this week? I love feeling like something is going on!

Movement? Just the cramps. Oh and my boobs are HUGE lol!

Food cravings? Pickles and ice cliche lol!

Gender? I think boy and DH thinks girl.

Labor signs? Nope.

What I miss? Not feeling bloated 24/7 lol.

What I'm looking forward to? I'm looking forward to sharing the news with our parents on Christmas morning!

Weekly Wisdom: I'm trying not to stress too much about the "what if's" and trying to enjoy each day of this pregnancy (bloat, cramps and all!).

Milestones: I bought my first batch of maternity clothes!

Emotions: My hormones are out of control lol! I'm up and down - feel free to feel bad for Mr. Baby Fever!

Aprox. 5 weeks and 4 days pregnant


  1. So excited for you! :)

  2. Eeh! I'm still so excited for you. And check out Old Navy - their pants are the only ones I've found that stay up!
