6 Weeks

I'm 6 weeks pregnant today and still feeling great. I've been able to do all my normal activities with no problems. Natalie, over at Sweet Notes from the Stickles Family, is 19 weeks pregnant with her third child and she's posting these pregnancy highlights each week on her blog. I thought I'd borrow them from her and add my highlights to document how my pregnancy is progressing each week. So far its a little boring because its still so early. But it will get exciting soon enough. :-)

6 week "baby bump" picture, even though I'm not really showing yet. It will be fun to look back on these early pictures and see how I've grown.

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 6 weeks, 239 days to go.

Size of baby: About 1/4 of an inch, the size of a lentil.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I haven't actually weighed, but I'm still not showing. I doubt I've gained any baby weight yet.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet.

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

Movement: Not yet, its still too early.

Food Cravings: None so far.

What I miss: Being able to eat fish and drink caffeine.

Sleep: I have been pretty sleepy in the afternoon and evenings and have been sleeping pretty well other than having to get up about once a night to go to the bathroom.

Symptoms: Just a couple little symptoms, but no morning sickness or anything like that yet, and I'm hoping it stays that way. :-)

Best Moment this week: I haven't had anything exciting happen since we found out a little over a week ago.

What I am looking forward to: My first Dr. appt. on March 11th.
