Telling My Family:
We wanted to tell both our families in person. We lucked out and had two weekend trips planned with each family back-to-back. Father’s Day weekend we went to the Cottage with Kurt & Kate so we were able to tell my family together. I went back and forth on how to tell my family. Finally we decided on putting Kai to work. We got him a blue bandanna that said “Guess who’s going to be a big brother? This dog is!” I put it on him before we left so he could hit the ground running to tell his grandparents. Unfortunately, everyone was not outside like I thought they would be; they were all inside and would not go out. So, Jimmy brought Kai inside. Kurt was the first to notice so he helped out by grabbing Kai so my Mom could read the bandanna. She started to read out loud and then stopped, stared straight at me and asked: “you’re pregnant?!?”I said: “yep” and then she started screaming. Here is my “film discreetly” video:
Everyone was super excited for, oh, the whole weekend. We had a great time celebrating on the boat, in the pool, and relaxing.
How far along? 5 Weeks
How big is baby? The size of a sesame seed
Total weight gain/loss: down 3 lbs total
Maternity clothes? Fitting in all my clothes great thus far
Sleep: Still exhausted most of the time. Had a burst of energy Tuesday night so decided to go to Target, get ALL their “green” cleaning supplies and clean two bathrooms, oh and vacuum the upstairs.
Best moment this week: Telling my family
Movement: I think I’d be alarmed if I did feel anything
Food cravings: Not really.
Food Aversions: The smell of my Greek yogurt as I packed breakfast on Monday morning sent me running, but I bucked up and held my breath. It was that, or not eat, and not eating is not an option.
Gender: I cannot wait to find this out.
Labor Signs: N/A
Pregnancy Symptoms: I am tired and have waves of nausea but it’s not bad yet. Thinking this will get worse
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: My energy. I want to sleep all the time. But alas, I work full-time, so that is not an option. Power through! (without caffeine, this is a cruel situation)
What I am looking forward to: 3 more weeks until our first prenatal appointment. Praying for a healthy heartbeat.
Upcoming appointments/events: First appointment is July 6 – time go quicker!!!
Weekly Wisdom: If you feel good one day, take full advantage of it – clean, cook, shop, socialize, whatever, because tomorrow, you might feel terrible.
Milestones: None ?? Baby does look like a shrimp on my Nurture app, I thought that was funny
