7 Weeks

How far along: 7 Weeks
How big is the baby: Size of a blueberry
Weight gain: None
Doctor: Can't wait! 1 more week until my check-up!
Clothes: Regular
Sleep: SO TIRED ALL DAY! Thursday afternoon I hit a wall and could barely function for the last 45 minutes of the day. I couldn't even read a story to the kids because I couldn't move enough to sign. I hope that doesn't continue! I get through the week by taking a short nap most days before I go to class at night!
Movement: Not yet!
Food/Aversions: I have been feeling yucky during the day unless I eat little snacks. Apparently my students have noticed! (See above). I have a whole stash on my desk: dried pineapple, edamame chips, pumpkin seeds, dried plantains with sea salt, granola, and then extra fresh fruit I pack in my lunch. I have had random bloat/heartburn some days for no obvious reason. Saturday night I didn't even eat that much at our dinner out and I felt SO full. 
What I miss: Nothing yet!
What I am looking forward to: Feeling more pregnant! Whatever that means.
Oh! And This: We had an amazing weekend with good friends (2 other couples) staying at a resort about an hour away. One of my girlfriends is pregnant too (due in January), but it was still a blast even without us two drinking. I was the DD for our pontoon boat rental. I had a blast being the captain! I included a picture of my Jamberry nails. I have been trying to avoid a lot of my fun nailpolishes and only painting with 4 or 5 free (explained here) types. Or the Jamberry stickers! Oh! And I needed a raincoat for doing Parent Drop Off and Pick Up at school in the yucky Chicago weather. I decided to get a size up so it would last me through the winter. But it is kind of huge!
