Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017!

Today is 2/3/17 which means I’m 6 weeks, 1 day.

Baby is the size of a lentil!

Baby is a… no clue!

Doctor’s appointment this week? No, but I did go tour Baby and Company, where I plan to give birth and have my maternity care. 

Current mood: Queasy and hungry

Cravings: Five minutes ago I realized I wanted an M&M McFlurry. I can say I at least just ate a salad before that…

Food Aversions: Funny, but I hated sausage at 5 weeks and then the next day wanted spaghetti but I could ONLY eat the prego sauce with sausage in it. Pregnancy is weird. As of now, I still can’t eat peanut or almond butter. I also have random aversions from time to time. My sense of smell is so strong, I can smell EVERY nasty thing.

The yucky stuff: I’ve been so sick the past couple of days. One minute I’m nauseous and starving, the next I’m feeling like I ate a watermelon and might throw up. Yesterday I ate a pick 2 meal at Panera with a smoothie and a scone around 1pm. I couldn’t even eat dinner last night because my body was still telling me I was full. I woke up at 12:30am and had to shove a handful of teddy grahams in my mouth before I could sleep because I was starving. I also still can’t really poop, so I’m sure that’s part of the problem. 

Currently rocking: It’s jean day at work so skinny jeans, black boots, a gray/white/black scarf and a maroon top

The best thing about pregnancy this week? Learning about the birthing center

What’s different about baby #2 than with Jude’s pregnancy? I don’t seem to mind eggs and meat like I did with him still. I also didn’t feel sick like this in the beginning and I think I was a lot more tired with his. 

I’m nervous about: Telling our family. I don’t want his sister to be upset since she’s having a baby in May. I don’t want to steal anyone’s thunder, if that makes sense. 

Other thoughts: I keep having this intense feeling it’s a girl. But who knows. So far the symptoms are different… so maybe!
