Week 7

Week 7: February 13-19 (size: blueberry)

How are you feeling today (Feb 19)?
Mood: Happy
Energy: Good
Appetite: Hungry! But the thought of most foods make me nauseous.  
Morning Sickness: Yes! Bad today! (no vomiting though)
Cravings: Fruit/ Ice Cream

Week 7:
Maternity Clothes: No- but thinking of going ahead and purchasing a bella band b/c my pants are OOBER tight! The tops of them roll down b/c they are so tight (work pants) Jeans are okay, just snug- they ride lower though.  
Sleep: been pretty good this week- waking up to go pee at least once during the night
Best moment of the week:  Had HCG tests on Mon/ Wed and didnt hear anything... I'm hoping this is a good sign?/ Making it another week!
Food Cravings: Fruits (blueberries & strawberries), ice cream (the smell of peanuts GAG me!)  I'm so hungry & can't seem to get full, although NOTHING sounds good & thinking of most foods make me nauseous! 
Gender: no clue? Girl? 
What I'm looking forward to: Getting official blood work results to be in the clear.  Telling "the world" -- maybe now or @ 12 weeks- I wanna talk!!

Weekly Wisdom: ???

Your Baby in Week 7 of Pregnancy

Your baby is now about the size of a blueberry (and about 10,000 times bigger than he was at conception). Most of that growth is concentrated in the head as new brain cells are generated at the rate of 100 per minute. Your baby's mouth and tongue are forming as arm and leg buds sprout, and those little kidneys are getting ready to do their job (pee production and excretion).


Your Body in Week 7 of Pregnancy

Your baby might be the size of a blueberry, but your breasts probably look more like melons. By this point, some expectant moms have grown a full cup size, which might be welcome news if those boobs weren't so darn tender. The culprits? Those naughty (though necessary) pregnancy hormones again, along with an increase in blood flow and a buildup of fat — all essential to the task your body can perform in about eight months: breastfeeding your newborn! Learn more about your body this week and swollen breasts during pregnancy.
