6 Weeks

There's something about "6 weeks." Not really sure what, but it feels like a milestone.

My baby is the size of a sweet pea!

According to, our baby is "Growing like crazy, baby is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks, and chin. Those little hands and feet -- still webbed like paddles -- might wiggle by week's end, the heart is beating (almost twice as fast as yours!), and blood is starting to circulate."

That's so crazy! It's just miraculous and I can't help but smiling about it. It's slowly becoming a reality. We FINALLY get to have our first ultrasound on Sunday and I am so excited. I'm kind of nervous as well. The what-if's are hard at work in my head, but I'm just trying to relax and enjoy every minute of my pregnant bliss. 

Unfortunately, morning sickness has slowly made an appearance over the last week. It's tolerable most of the time and comes in waves. I'm learning how to adjust and keep the nausea at bay. I did learn to NEVER take my pre-natal vitamin in the morning. That was a BAD day. Fortunately, I've yet to actually lose it, but I came pretty close! I've also outgrown all of my bras (which is unfortunate, because I JUST bought some). I'm holding off on buying maternity/nursing bras as long as possible. I'd hate to spend the money on something just to outgrow that as well. Other than the morning sickness, I haven't really had many other symptoms. I seem to enjoy a nap in the afternoons more than usual, but honestly I feel more energized than before I was pregnant when I am awake. Hopefully that sticks around. I'm getting a lot done!

We've started thinking about nursery decorations and I'll be making a whole other post on that later! Also, in case you were wondering, we do not plan on finding out the sex of the baby. We want to be surprised. So, we're trying to be as gender neutral as possible. 

The boys are wanting to make an appearance in their shirts. Considering they were an integral part of the announcement, it's only fitting that they get some face time. ;)

And finally, this week's picture. Obviously nothing to show yet but bloat. But I even feel like that is better than it was last week. I can't wait for my baby bump to appear!
