8 weeks

Tuesday, June 9, 2015
Because I love documenting pretty much everything in life, here is my first inevitable pregnancy highlight for our miracle bean. I haven't decided if I want to share these bi-weekly, or monthly; either way it's a fun way to keep all of my readers updated, and a nice reference for me to look back on throughout my pregnancy. I've seen a ton of these "bumpdates" and pregnancy highlights, but I'm hoping to put my own spin on these and maybe add video footage every once in a while. Today I am officially 8 weeks, so let's get to these updates!

**Disclaimer** These updates may be TMI from time to time, so dad... these may not be the blogposts of mine you want  to read

How far Along: 8 weeks

Nicknames for baby: Miracle Bean

Size of baby: Kidney bean

Gender Prediction: Boy, because this pregnancy is so different than my pregnancy with Ava bug

Symptoms: morning sickness, nausea, fatigue, bloating, tons of discharge, and gas pains (ouch)!

Best moment this week: Waking up and not rushing straight for the toilet boil

Movement: No movement just yet

Food Cravings: No cravings at the moment

Food Aversions: Everything. I literally don't want to eat anything

What I Miss: Not being sick every waking moment of the day, and being able to get things done during Ava's nap... instead of sleeping myself.

Sleep: I want sleep ALL. THE. TIME.

Justin: He is so excited for this baby! He's stepped up and taken roll of mommy and daddy most days. He's so awesome with keeping Ava bug entertained, even while making us dinner. This gives mama time to snooze, and I appreciate it so much!

What I am looking forward to this week: Prepping for two weeks of family vacation, and having some very early maternity photos taken

Happy or moody most of the time: I definitely notice that I’m getting annoyed more easily than usual. I’m trying not to let little things get to me, but it’s harder than usual! Justin has been getting the backlash to my mood swings (sorry babe)!
