Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017!

Today is 1/26/17 which means I’m 5 weeks, 0 days.

Baby is the size of a sesame seed!

Baby is a… no clue!

Doctor’s appointment this week? Nope.

Current mood: Excited and terrified. I seem to fluctuate between these two every hour or so.

Cravings: I’ve been wanting to eat healthy. Nothing in particular more than anything else.

Food Aversions: Peanut or Almond butter, sausage, and beans! I can’t smell any of these right now without wanting to puke.

The yucky stuff: I’m tired a lot but I’ve been trying to keep up with an exercise routine. I get full easily and hungry easily. I slip between the two throughout the day, never just feeling normal. I also cry at the drop of a hat. I already feel pregnancy brain starting too—I can’t remember things or focus well. I’ve gotten a few sharp pains in my lower abdomen but nothing too bad.

Currently rocking: Leggings, a soft long sleeve shirt, and a purple scarf. I’ve been tired so I probably should stop wearing such comfy clothes…

The best thing about pregnancy this week? Scouring the sale rack at Target for baby clothes. Just wish I didn’t have to buy gender neutral!

What’s different about baby #2 than with Jude’s pregnancy? With Jude I couldn’t even stand the thought of eggs, especially scrambled eggs. I seem to be fine with eggs right now. Same with meat. No meat has really bothered me other than my dad cooking sausage the other day.

I’m nervous about: Telling my dad! I feel like Jessica Simpson. I just can’t seem to make it down the aisle before having kids. 😉

Other thoughts: I really hope it’s a girl. After losing my mom, having a little girl of my own would be perfection. <3

I also hate that this is a secret because I want to tell EVERYONE. But my mom had 2 miscarriages and last time I was pregnant made sure to tell me not to in case I were to have one. She had made that mistake and had to go back and tell people she wasn’t expecting anymore and it was heartbreaking for her.
