8 Weeks

How far along: 8 Weeks
How big is the baby: Size of a raspberry. Raspberries are huge!
Weight gain: None
Clothes: Regular. They just all don't look great. 
Sleep: For the last few weeks I have been waking up several times throughout the night to go to the bathroom, get a drink of water (OMG! THE THIRST!) and then not be able to fall back asleep.
Movement: Not yet!
Food/Aversions: Pretty much same ole same ole. I have been loving fresh fruit. Grapes. Apples. Yum! I feel fine most of the time! I have had some icky feeling days, but nothing that isn't easily dealt with!
What I miss: Nothing. I am a really good pretend drinker though. Everyone always says they will know when I am pregnant when I stop drinking. I fooled everyone at my brother-in-law's 40th birthday on Saturday. I brought my own mixed drink of "wine and sprite" (sprite and cranberry juice) and drank it all night!
What I am looking forward to: Looking pregnant!
Oh! And This: I had my first appt today at the OB office with the NP. I switched to a new doctor because i want to deliver at a different hospital. This one also comes highly recommended. I loved the NP and was floating on air when she said everything felt nice and big and 8 weeks! Yay! She said I could schedule my ultrasound for anytime. So Friday it is! Friday! That is so soon! I can totally wait until Friday!!!! Then it will only be 3 more weeks until my 12 week appointment!

I LOVE waking up and checking my favorite pregnancy apps as soon as I wake up. I have 5 favorites that I check before getting out of bed. There is one I take notes in. But I love the others for their daily tips! Each one has different tips. And Monday morning is the BEST when I get to read all of the new weekly updates!

The apps I like:
BabyBump: This one I use to journal/take notes and has weekly and daily updates
Pregnancy:  Has good weekly and daily updates
Sprout: Has awesome pictures (like the one below) and daily and weekly updates
Baby Center: Has a checklist item for each day and also some sort of tip or article
WebMD Pregnancy: Has 5 new things each week, and one changes every day. 

Most of them have tips about your body, the baby, any general pregnancy tips. 


This picture is from my brother-in-law's 40th birthday party on Saturday! I am a great pretend drinker! I opted out of the shot by saying I had church in the morning and I would take a picture!
