8 Week Bump Date

How Far Along: 8 weeks today.
 (You can check out my 8 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

Size of baby: (According to 8 weeks: Your baby is about the size of a kidney bean. Your little bean is now just over 1/2 inch long and is constantly moving and shifting.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I haven't actually weighed, but should find out today at my first Dr. appt.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet.

Gender: We should be able to find out sometime in December. I can't wait. :-)

Movement: Not yet, but I can't wait to feel little baby flutters and kicks. This was my favorite part about being pregnant with Jackson. :-)

Food Cravings: Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets, and since we don't have one close-by, I haven't gotten to have them yet. :-(

What I miss: Nothing really.

Sleep: Sleeping fine, just having to get up at least once a night to use the bathroom.

Symptoms: I feel nauseous off and on, but its pretty manageable as long as I'm eating often. It's mostly in the evening, so thankfully I'm able to get through the bulk of my day without feeling yucky. I'm also tired and having to use the bathroom more.

Best Moment this week: Spending the weekend with family. The weather was perfect!!

What I am looking forward to: My first doctor's appt. today for this baby.

That bump is looking cuter and cuter every week! Sounds like your pregnancy is going well. Stay well, mama.

Still no Chik Fil A?! I think there is one by MidRiver's mall, if you feel like making the trek out there. :)

I'm so happy I found your blog! I will be 8 weeks on Saturday (baby # 1) and it's nice to follow someone who so close (week wise). I haven't made it public on my blog yet, but I'm doing the same updates you're doing on a word doc for now and will catch up on the blog later!
Can't wait to hear how your first doctor's appointment went!
