Seven Weeks, Three Days

These posts focus specifically on this pregnancy. If you're not in a good place, please feel free to pass it over. Take care of you!!

I just got back from nine days in FL helping my best friend move into his first house:

Way to go, W!

This morning was our second ultrasound: slightly bigger Smudge, still with a beautiful heartbeat, and measuring exactly on target at 7w3d. Thank you, Lord!! We've been released to the midwives at the birth center. Woo-hoo!

Picture of a picture, I know...

I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that I've already switched over to maternity pants. I can't help it! My stomach is swollen and my uterus has already popped over my pubic bone. My regular pants were making me feel like I was stuffed into a sausage casing. YUCK! I feel so much better now that I'm wearing these...

Still no true morning sickness but my stomach gets upset easily. I get slightly nauseous every once in a while, usually when I haven't eaten in a couple hours. The weirdest things are throwing my system off, though, so I'm trying to pay attention to what makes me feel good and what doesn't.

Other than that, I'm just tired. I'm only waking up once during the night for the bathroom but I'm so tired by the afternoon. Definitely grateful for the blessing of working from home! I can lay down for a nap as needed.


  1. Stuffed into a sausage casing! Haha! This is the exact wording I use to describe myself on Clomid, so no judgment here! Congrats on the graduation from the RE! That's exciting news! Wishing you all the best!

  2. Take care of're entering the hardest part. You are right to pay attention to your body and pamper it a bit. I'm SO jealous of the working from home thing right about now!

  3. Look forward to hearing about the upcoming appts with the midwives! I think it's great you are going down that route. Hope you had a great time in FL!

  4. With my first pregnancy right after IVF all I wore were stretchy type pants from 6 weeks on...just so much more comfortable! So glad to hear things are going well....

  5. Exciting news!! Even though it is a picture of a picture... It is a great picture!
