Maternity Clothes: nope
Stretch Marks: nope
Sleep: well i no longer feel exhausted at night like a did a couple of weeks ago. but i do have to get up once a night now to use the potty.
Best Moment this Week: we had an initial consult with a doc, and we got to ask a lot of questions, and she gave us a ton of useful info. we also scheduled our 1st official check-up for nov. 5th
Movement: none, but i'm still getting occasional cramps
Food Cravings: i'm really into avocados right now.

Weekly Wisdom: i'm just still thankfully that i haven't gotten sick yet
Milestones: none this week

week 6: sweet pea

Growing like crazy, baby is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks and chin. Those little hands and feet - still webbed like paddles - might wiggle by week's end, the heart is beating (almost twice as fast as yours!), and blood is starting to circulate.

Total Weight Gain: not sure, but i don't think any yet
Maternity Clothes: nope

weeks 3-5

weeks 3-4: poppyseed

In week 3, sperm meets egg, and voila: conception! Your little zygote sets off on a six-day trek through your fallopian tubes, dividing and redividing into identical cells as it travels to your uterus.

In week 4, now safe in your womb, the ball of cells (blastocyst) splits in two, becoming the
embryo and the placenta. The amniotic sac and fluid are forming around baby, and will act as a cushion for the next eight months.

week 5: appleseed

Your embryo (looking kind of like a tadpole) is starting to form major organs (heart, kidney, liver, stomach) and systems (nervous, circulatory, digestive). Baby's presence in your uterus triggers production of hCG (the hormone detected by pregnancy tests)... which triggers production of other hormones like estrogen and progesterone... which trigger all those great symptoms you've probably been noticing!

It's official...

we're going to have a baby! if britney spears and kevin federline can raise a child(ren) so can we - lol. ok, seriously, i'm kidding (about the britney/kfed part, not the pregnant part). we found out last week, so of course, i decided to start a blog about it! i would have incorporated it into my other blog, but since we've only told our parents/siblings, we didn't want to spoil the surprise for anyone else reading my other blog. so obviously the focus of this blog is going to be about my pregnancy journey, which will hopefully be rather uneventful.
