5 weeks

How Far Along: 5 weeks and 3 days

How Big is The Baby: The size of an Appleseed!

Total Weight Gain: I've lost 5 lbs. Due to having surgery on my mouth and being sick

Maternity Clothes: Not yet, can't wait!

Stretch Marks: None besides the ones I already have

Sleep: Tired during the day. I end up conking out about 9 or 10 at night but am always woken up around 3 with back pain and having to pee. I can never get back to sleep till around 6 or 7

Movement: Too early, wish it wasn't so I could have some reassurance

Food Cravings: Nothing really, but I am having aversions

What I Miss: Sleeping through the night, but I guess I'll have to get used to that!

What I’m Looking Forward To: Hearing the heartbeat (Hopefully on Thursday!), watching my belly grown, finding out the gender, meeting my son or daughter.

Milestones: Getting to 5 weeks and 3 days. Assuming everything looks good on Thursday, this will officially be the longest I have ever been pregnant!

  1. How nice that you are pregnant! Congratulations!
    Best regards,

  2. Oh My Gosh Ashley...
    How exciting. You and Josh must be ecstatic. A baby is always indeed a blessing, and I just know that the family is thrilled.

    I can't wait to see how much you have grown by the time I come home this year. It may be closer to Summer. My body has not done well with the pollen there in the Spring.

    I will be keeping you in my prayers sweet one. Many hugs and much love to you both, Sherry

  3. GAW! I can't wait!! :) I'll definitely have to make a trip to see you. Can't wait to spoil this baby!!!
