I am not sure how often I will blog this little series, but God willing, it will result in a healthy baby being added to my family. I plan on blogging on my Dr. visits so I can be sure to have those interesting little tid-bits of information to share with you, so that means it will be monthly until week 32, then it will be bi-monthly, then at week 37 it will be weekly, up until you get the blog about this journey being over.
Keep in mind I am only 7 weeks so this means that there is still a high percentage rate of miscarriage. This also means I have no baby bump, just bloating and pudge. So. No pictures until at least week 14. Not because I will be showing, I usually don't look "pregnant" until week 20... but because at week 14 you will at least be able to see that a baby bump is trying to emerge... rather than right now, when it just looks like I can't lay off the fried chicken.
So how fat is Amy getting? Well. All of my jeans are tight. BAH! ha. I don't even like to think about going out because I look at my closet and think, what in the heck am I going to wear? Ha ha ha. I started this pregnancy at 135 lbs... I think I am tipping the scales at 138 right now. Not good. I have already put on 3 lbs. I do not want to end this pregnancy any heavier than 155 lbs so you have my goal, let's see if I can accomplish it.
I have a nature trail right by my house so I have been walking about 2 miles daily.
What is sonar nose, you may ask? Well, I don't know about any other preggos, but when I am expecting my sense of smell goes haywire. With Lindsey I wanted to smell freshly bleached whites coming out of the washer and lemon dish soap. I don't remember with Brendan what I liked to smell, but this one, I have already found that wet pavement smells heavenly. I know. Weird. We'll just have to wait and see what other smells grab my attention.
I have called to get in with the OB that delivered both my son and my daughter so I will probably have another update for you after that first appointment, but until then... I hope you enjoyed my pregnancy TMI.
