I’m 5 weeks pregnant, y’all!
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.
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.
