7 Weeks (January)

I want to tell everyone I'm pregnant. I have worry something will go wrong but also think about if I tell one person that person will tell others and ruin my news.
I am so lightheaded. It sucks. Now it's like it used to be. Even the act of eating takes so much energy that I am so exhausted before I'm done eating and feel like I need a rest.  Taking care of Ella at the same time is rough.  I wrote that halfway through the week and the level of being lightheaded is to a whole new level now.
I have been forgetting to mention but Poly sure loves me since I've been pregnant. She loves to cuddle with me and sit on my lap or lie on me.

How many weeks: 7

Size of baby: blueberry (8 mm or 4.2-5.1 mm depending on what source you look at)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 2.1 lbs  loss overall. No change from last week to this week.

Maternity Clothes: Nope

Sleep: I'm more tired and I'm waking up more in the night. I'm also sleeping longer. I go to sleep way earlier and wake up way earlier, too.

What I miss: Working out without getting lightheaded or working out in general

Cravings: Nothing yet.

Aversions: Nothing yet.

Symptoms: lightheaded, some nausea, fatigue, trouble sleeping. I had a lot of trouble falling asleep last night because I was nauseous. I actually got out of bed and had crackers. I can't believe I didn't do that 3 hours earlier!

Best moment this week: Dropping Ella off at preschool and getting to lie down to try to recover from being so lightheaded

Looking forward to: Actually telling people. I can't wait for them to know that I'm not lazy and that I barley function because of this pregnancy. My doctor appointment on February 1.

Exercise: Running, push-ups, planks, wall-squat. I've done a lot less since I've been lightheaded. I only ran once at the end of the week and had a few days of nothing.

Same this time: I had the same same looking forward to.

Different from last time: I exercised a lot more last time or maybe just feel like I did.  I didn't list being lightheaded as a symptom last time but mentioned it with what I miss.  


  1. Be careful with the light headed bouts.

    1. I know. It's rough time. At least it did get better
