7 weeks, 4 days

I continue to marvel at how lucky/blessed we were to conceive naturally after all that time and RIGHT before we moved onto IVF.  I don’t take a minute of this for granted and I’m incredibly grateful and lucky.  I’m starting to get anxious to tell our parents but we want to see him/her first next week before saying anything.  Each day that passes, I feel more and more comfortable believing that we won’t lose this little one.  I hope and pray that I’m correct.

According to “that site,” my little one is the size of a blueberry – it’s crazy how fast he/she is growing and a little scary too that he/she is developing so much right now.  I’m nervous to do the right things, eat the proper foods, etc.

Symptoms (which I continue to embrace whole heartedly because each remind me that I’m pregnant): not just sore boobs but rapidly growing boobs (which is fun for a petite girl like me!), nausea, extreme fatigue continues

Food aversions: none, yet!

Food cravings: Salty foods like salt & vinegar chips – so bad for me but oh so delicious

Mama’s physical changes: boobs growing faster and faster, serious belly bloat

Next milestone: super-duper excited (and nervous) for my first ultrasound on Dec. 27 and first OB appointment on Dec. 28

  1. Congratulations!!! I’m just over two weeks behind you.
    It’s amazing how much these little things grow! Mine is only a poppyseed size right now. :=O

    I’ve got the same symptoms as you, but nothing much else so far. And I’m finally (starting) to believe I’m pregnant!! It’s so strange. 🙂

    Take care!
