(Another entry from my ‘hidden’ pregnancy diary…remember – ignore the incorrect date of the post) How far along? 6 weeks 3 days How big is baby? This week, baby has grown to the size of a sweet pea! How I’m feeling? With all the excitement of starting our overseas trip, my pregnancy anxiety appears to have calmed down, at least a little. I did have a mini meltdown today when I thought by breast tenderness was easing and spent too much time researching the signs of a missed miscarriage. The rational part of me knows that I need to stop googling and relax, which is apparently easier said than done! (Excuse the post-workout sweatiness. We had just been for what was to be my first and last run during this pregnancy!) Weight? no idea! How I’m changing? I am still noticing a definite ‘softening’ throughout my body, but other than that I haven’t noticed any further changes this week. What I miss? Margaritas! There is too much Mexican food in the USA – with too many yummy margarita varieties on the menu. Mineral water will have to do. Symptoms? My boobs are still tender (mostly), although I think they are less tender than they were a week ago. I have still had zero morning sickness, and I am now beginning to think that I might be one of the lucky ones who doesn’t suffer from any. I’ll keep my fingers crossed and hopefully I am not speaking too soon. Cravings? Fresh fruit. And salads. Perhaps it is the warmer weather over here in the USA but I cant seem to get enough! Food Aversions? None. It is quite crazy. The last time I was pregnant (but sadly miscarried) I had a huge aversion to all meat. This time around, if anything, I am almost craving meat with every meal. Iron levels perhaps? Highlights this week? The highlight of this week was most certainly having an early dating scan before we left for our trip, during which our little sweet pea measured spot on for 6 weeks. Also, within seconds, we could see our little sweet pea’s flickering heartbeat, and I cannot express enough just how relieved and emotional I was.

Hi Lisa! I'm loving your updates, and that you kept a hidden diary.
One suggestion I might give, if you have the time, would be to put a link to the following week at the bottom of each post! At the moment I'm clicking "back" to your baby page to get the next link. No worries, though! Still such a fun way to see how things are progressing! 🙂
I will see what I can do Jen! 🙂
