7 weeks

How far along: 7 weeks

Maternity clothes: Got one of those Be Bands from Target. It's like a tube top that you wear around your waist to cover up the fact that your pants are unbuttoned.

Stretch marks: Nope.

Sleep: I still love sleep, but I've been having trouble staying asleep. Seems like I wake up at least twice a night, wide awake, and have to lay there and try to get my comfy spot back without waking Nick up.

Best moment this week: I got a picture of you, baby blob! Also... Movement: None that I could feel, but we saw the flutter of a heartbeat!!!

Food cravings/aversions: Still craving pizza/I discovered this morning that I want nothing to do with tuna fish.

Gender: I think I want a girl too, but I've been feeling boy.

What I miss: Can't think of a single thing right now.

What I am looking forward to: going to Chicago this weekend! Yeah, we decided to go even with everything that's going on at work, we still felt like we deserved a little baby-moon. So, Sears Tower, Navy Pier and Lincoln Park Zoo here we come!

What I have learned: When it comes to doctor's appointments, you must be willing to WAIT.

Milestones: First prenatal appt, first ultrasound (which was free - love that doc), first official pounds gained due to pregnancy, not just due to being a hog.

Also, I changed the color scheme from pink to green because we don't know if sweet pea is a boy or a girl, but I do know that sweet peas are green.
