 Obviously, I am farther along, but like I said, I did some "behind the scenes" blogging. I am going to post them this week and hopefully get caught up for my weekly posts for next week! :)

 I felt a little silly posing for a picture by myself.... after 50 tries this is the best I could get!
Not showing yet; looking a little thick around that waist... I'll take it!! ;)

Heading to church for our choir special in my red & black....

  • How Far Along? 6 weeks 4 weeks and 5 days(Sunday, December 18); It changed when we went to the doctor (I will explain later)! My weeks change every Tuesday and I usually take my pictures every Sunday before church!:)
  • Size of Baby P? Poppy seed
  • This week's major developments:
This week marks the beginning of the embryonic period. From now until 10 weeks, all of your baby's organs will begin to develop and some will even begin to function. As a result, this is the time when she'll be most vulnerable to anything that might interfere with her development.
Right now your baby is an embryo the size of a poppy seed, consisting of two layers: the epiblast and the hypoblast, from which all of her organs and body parts will develop.
The primitive placenta is also made up of two layers at this point. Its cells are tunneling into the lining of your uterus, creating spaces for your blood to flow so that the developed placenta will be able to provide nutrients and oxygen to your growing baby when it starts to function at the end of this week.
Also present now are the amniotic sac, which will house your baby; the amniotic fluid, which will cushion her as she grows; and the yolk sac, which produces your baby's red blood cells and helps deliver nutrients to her until the placenta has developed and is ready to take over this duty.

  • Maternity Clothes? Of course not, but my pants are sure feeling snug! I've been eying some websites w/ cute clothes though! :)
  • Weight Gain? None... YET!
  • Stretch Marks? Nope! Getting some creams and oils ASAP!
  • Gender? I have a feeling it is a girl; Lee thinks it is a little knucklehead(boy;) 
Do we care? NOT AT ALL, we will be over the moon happy either way! The silly calendars all say girl. 
  • Sleep? Before pregnancy I pretty much slept through the night. But I have been waking up 3 and 4 times a night. Either from a weird/creepy dream (those are another post in itself!WOW)or to potty!
  • Food Cravings?No cravings yet; I stocked up on veggies and fruits though!
  • What I Miss? Nothing!.... YET that is:)
  • What I am loving? Waking up every morning knowing I have our little angel growing inside of me! We feel so blessed. I love how Lee is constantly asking me, "Are you ok?"I am also loving searching for a mommy mobile! 
  • Movement? Of course not!
  • Symptoms? None that need to be talked about on the internet; just the normal! I have been extremely lucky so far....
  • Best Moment of the Week?Ordering baby reveal items and pregnancy journal! Doing my first pregnancy blog post... (I can't believe it's my turn!!!:); AND one more thing, when Lee sent me my first email saying, "How is little momma feeling today?" First doctor's appointment soon!


  1. Okay, first I have to say WOW! You look great. And second how much are the weeks changing when you go for the appointment? I mean shouldn't they be able to better pinpoint it?

  2. How great that you get to blog about your journey!


Thank you for your sweet comments. They truly make my day! :-)
