Hello to all the symptoms they tell you about pregnancy! Hit me right at the beginning of Week 6 and still haven’t gone away 🙁 But on the brightside, we are only 2 days away from our first OB appointment! I’m so nervous and excited at the same time especially since we’re still in the early stages for miscarriage. (This risk decreases after 12 weeks) I have a laundry list of questions to ask our OB so I’ll keep you posted!
Little babe has grown from 0.25 inches to 0.51 inches in these past 2 weeks! They went from the size of a sweet pea to a blueberry. About 100 new brain cells are forming per minute! How wild!
I have had crazzzyyyy nausea and food aversions literally since the beginning of Week 6. I mean the type of nausea where you only eat crackers, water and saltines. When I am actually wanting to eat food, it’s usually whatever I am craving at that moment (Chicfila, Chicken Noodle Soup, etc.) Week 7 started with a sour stomach that brought me to tears. It felt as if I had a bad stomach ache for 4 straight days! I could barely eat anything because nothing agreed with me. Thankfully that has subsided the last 2 days.
Just some bloating still but not really a bump I would say. I’m just at that stage where I looked a little bloated in the tummy and want to wear all the baggy clothes. I have a feeling I’ll have a bump by Week 12 which I’m soo excited about. I’ve already stocked up on some bump friendly dresses to wear to work during the transition.
Cravings have been off the chain!! I mostly have wanted ALL salty foods…which is sooo unlike me. I barely even want anything sugary. I’ve thought about potato chips for like 5 days now. I’ve mostly craved macaroni and cheese, egg bacon and cheese bagels, and vanilla ice cream. As soon as I think of something, I immediately crave it until I get it.
TIP: Keep crackers handy for morning sickness! Once you feel some nausea, snack on a few crackers!
