7 Week Survey (Sorry I've Been MIA)

Hello Everyone! I am sooo sorry that I havent posted in a while, but I'm back and hope that I can remain consistent! :) Thanks so much for all of your wonderful comments, well wishes and congratulations on my last post! A big thanks to Mrs. V who kept coming back to check up on me. I appreciate the love and I have been reading your posts and am sooo happy about your progress!! :)

Hubby took a pic of me on Saturday morning and I wanted to share it with you on this post, but we are having issues with our computer. I mean, not that there was much to see, lol, but I do want to share my weekly progress! Hopefully I can get that up soon! But here's something in the mean while... LOL

Anyway, here's my first survey!

How Far Along? 7 weeks, 1 day

Symptoms: Sore boobies, nausea, vomitting, lack of appetite

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Well I havent been back to the doctor since my first visit (I am going tomorrow), but according to other scales Ive been on it seems that I am about the same weight.

Sleep: has been pretty good at night. I havent had many issues except for the occasional waking up because of gas or nausea, but I usually fall right back asleep. I also have been napping at my car at lunch, but I did that before I was preg.... soooo! LOL

Food Cravings: OMG nothing! Food is sooo unappealing to me at this moment! Typing this makes me a little woozy LOL.

Best Moment This Week: Hubby texting me to tell me he had a dream that I the baby and "she was a beautiful baby girl". I asked who she looked like and he said "She looked like you. I said she was beautiful didn't I??"

Another great moment was making it to work on time today! Whewww, it has been a struggle with me this week feeling sick and getting back in bed each morning!

Movement: Aint nothing but gas! LOL

Labor Signs: Yeah, uh, as excited as we are to meet this bundle, that's not happening anytime soon!

Gender: I am totally unsure! Hubby is rooting for a boy though!

Belly Button In Or Out? Innie!

What I Miss: Being able to eat like a normal person. Sigh :(

What I Am Looking Forward To: My first OB appt tomorrow! Prayerfully everything is ok! :)

Milestones: Getting out of bed fine this morning and making it to work on time! Although I did vomit before I left the house, I am still grateful for the progress! Let's hope things improve from here on out.

Weekly Wisdom: Try to eat even if you arent hungry or feeling nauseous! (I am about to take heed to this right now!)

Is there anything that you can share with me from when you were at this stage in your pregnancy?


  1. Congrats! How exciting!

    Hopefully I'll get to be on this journey again soon:)

  2. 7 weeks pregnant seems so long ago, LOL. Let's see..

    I very much had morning sickness from weeks 5-15. I had major food aversions to pretty much anything and everything sweet.. And I had a hard time finding anything that sounded good to eat. My first trimester my skin went bezerk and I had the worst breakout ever.

  3. Yay!!! I'm so happy you are back and everything is great. I hope your morning sickness eases up. Your husband's comment was cute and it's great to hear he's already dreaming about your little one. I hope you have a great appointment tomorrow.

  4. So glad to have you back! Good luck at ur appt tomorrow!

  5. Welcome back! I'm SO glad everything is going well. I remember struggling to eat at your stage. Nothing sounded good, and all of my favorite foods disgusted me. Try to eat bland food. I survived on bananas, celery, toast, and popsicles. The first few weeks fly by! Before you know it you'll be 3 months pregnant and feeling more like your "usual" self. Hang in there! Hugs!!! :-)

  6. Welcome back girlie!! Glad things are goin well.

  7. Reading this made me giggle because Im now at 18 weeks and the stuff youre describing seems so long ago, but it wasnt. Lol when you hit that 2nd trimester you will be in heaven.

  8. Welcome back! Hoping the nausea clears soon...have you tried psi bands? My BFF swears by them, she's 14 weeks and still nauseated!

  9. It'll get better soon!!! Can't wait to see pregnant pics!!! Again Congratulations!

  10. I'm only in my 3rd week of what I hope is my first pregnancy. No wisdom to share yet. Love the comic!

  11. Heyyy mama! Enjoyed what u wrote! Hilarious! And cute... So glad ur preparing me for whenever I have a "nealbean" to call my own! Can't wait to read more blogs!

  12. Thanks for stopping.

    I am so happy everything is going smoothly. The weeks have gone so quick. I remember when you first told us the good news.

    Keep up the good work. :)!

    If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

    Exciting things going on around here!
