6 Week Survey

How far along?
6 weeks 1 day

Symptoms? Tired, sore back at night, nauseous feeling between 4-8pm most days, runny nose, sore.

Food cravings/aversions? In love with fiery hot cheetos and McDonald's french fries. Chunks of plain chicken breast makes me gag.

Total weight gain/loss: I haven't braved the scales since starting our last round of treatments, I have a feeling the Dr. will make me get weighed on Thursday. :0(

Maternity clothes?
Surprisingly, yes, I'm already wearing some maternity pants and bella bands. I am SHOCKED at how bloated my stomach is. Matt and I were talking and I am really wondering if my Crohn's Disease has something to do with all of the bloating. When I get the flu, hormone shots, etc my intestines really get huge and I am wondering if the same effects are taking place now that I'm pregnant. Oh well, I'll wear my maternity pants with pride. =)

Best moment this week:
Feeling quite queasy yesterday, I love any and all symptoms that make this pregnancy feel real.

Movement: Nope, not for a long time still.

Gender: I'm thinking boy, but we have no clue.

Labor Signs
: No thank you.

Belly Button in or out? Definitely in still.

What I miss: Sushi

What I am looking forward to:
I absolutely can't wait to see the heartbeat on Thursday, and also to see if we're having more than one baby!

Weekly Wisdom:
Enjoy every moment of being pregnant, even the morning sickness is a blessing from God.

We've officially passed the point when we miscarried in August.
