Hump Day Bump Day 5 Weeks!

First of all, I had to go back to May to find this survey I use to do last time I was pregnant. I then started reading all of my posts and it's just so hard to think that I lived through that. I can not believe that I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks. I can not believe that I saw and heard the heart beat TWO times and then it just wasn't there anymore. I can not believe it happened to me. I also can not believe that I am pregnant less than 4 months later. It just seems so unbelievable to me. All of it.

Anyway, here is my survey for this week. I will probably start belly pictures next week at 6 weeks.

Week: 5

How Big is Baby: Baby is the size of an apple seed. The Bump says "Your embryo is now measurable -- though at week five, it's a wee .13 inches -- and she's gearing up for much more growth. In fact, in the next week, she'll almost double in size. Grow baby grow!  The embryo doesn't look like much more than a tadpole right now, but at five weeks, she's already starting to form major organs (heart, stomach, liver, kidney) and systems (digestive, circulatory, nervous)."

Weight Gain: I've lost 0.6 since I found out I was pregnant.

Gender: Chris thinks it's a boy, I think it's a girl, but I'd love either and don't really have a preference.

Names: We have both of our names picked out. I'll probably share them after the anatomy ultrasound.

Symptoms: I'm super tired. I've also had some pretty intense cramping, but that's about it.

Sleep: I am sleeping so much and it's such good sleep. I never even wake up once the whole night. 

Movement: too early for that, but I can't wait!

Maternity Clothes: none

Food Cravings: Nothing really yet. 

Food Aversions: none

Stretchmarks: none

What I'm Looking Forward To: My first drs appointment next friday! It's just with the nurse, but at least it's something.

What I Miss: nothing yet

Next Drs Appointment: Next Friday at 10:30 am. Wooo!

Best Moment of the Week: Getting my betas back and seeing that they had tripled!!


  1. oh little boy/girl you are so loved already :) Cant wait to hear about your appointment!

  2. I'm stealing this once we announce. Also, make a countdown shirt. I did. It took me a half hour. Just use a regular tshirt like a nice one because you probably won't get all that big. They're on pinterest if you need to see one.

    1. I saw those on pinterest but i don't want to wear the same thing every week. I can't wait to read your survey every week! Only a couple more weeks!
