So here's my first little weekly questionare thing. (I love these) :) Our first appt. is tomorrow morning and I really don't know how I'm going to wait that long! I remember back at 4 weeks, thinking the 28th would NEVER get here. Well, here it is!! I'm so nervous and excited! If I don't throw up from my m/s tomorrow, I'll definitely lose it to nerves. Wish me luck!
**How far along? 7 weeks
**Total weight gain/loss: I'm down 2lbs. this morning, but it flutuates
**How Big is Baby?: LO is a blueberry :)
**Maternity clothes? No- I did order belly bands from Etsy. This bloat is crazy!
**Stretch marks? None yet ::crosses fingers::
**Sleep: It's okay - I have to pee all the time.
**Best moment this week: LO doubled in size. That's exciting!! Grow LO!
**Movement: Not for a while
**Food cravings: bleh. The only thing my stomach can handle is powerade. I hate food right now.
**Gender: Everyone, with the exception of my little brother, thinks it's a girl. (Including me)
**Labor Signs: Let's hope these stay away for a while!
**Belly Button in or out? In
**What I am looking forward to: Our first appt. is tomorrow!! U/S!!
**Weekly Wisdom: Try not to stress to hard: if something is going to happen, stressing won't stop it.
**Milestones: I'm still amazed I'm pregnant, let alone 7 weeks now!

In other news, I'm 5 weeks, 4 days today!! Our little bean will be the size of a sweet pea on Sunday! DH laughs at the comparisons each week. This week (week 5) LO was the size of a sesame seed, so I HAD to go to Arby's just to get a sandwhich with sesame seeds on it. We sat there and beamed at the fact that the sesame seed represented how big LO was. We're so weird I swear. It's amazing how excited I get at each passing day already. That's the first thing on my mind when I wake up. My first sonogram is a week from Tuesday and I'm thrilled! I really don't know exactly what to expect, but I hope we can at least see a heartbeat. (Even typing this gives me butterflies, and the most joyous, refreshing reminder of how wonderful life is.) I'll post on Monday with my 6 week bloat pictures... and believe me, the bloat is ridiculous!

DH and I ate breakfast and I went back upstairs to finish getting ready. I couldn't resist. For the 5th time, I tested. This time it was with a +/- test, so I knew there would be no guessing. What the hell do you know?! It was definitely a +!!! I feel to my knees and starting crying hysterically. After a good 10 minutes, I pulled myself together long enough to grab DH's "surprise" and set it at the top of the stairs. I called for him to come help me. (He always tries to help pick out my clothes, so he assumed that was what I wanted) I sat on the bed and waited while he picked up the card and box and studied it. I directed him to open the card first, which said something along the lines of, "You're going to shine at your new job", and the inside, "As if you don't shine enough already". I wrote at the bottom, "I'm so proud of you baby. I love you. A." In the box was a t-shirt that said, "Fatherhood, the toughest job you'll ever love." As soon as he opened it he teared up and grabbed me. He just kept repeating, "Is this real? Are you serious?" That was one of the most amazing moments of my life so far.
I'm in love with this child already. This is our baby, the deepest symbol of our love for one another. Thank you Lord, for you are the only one who could ever understand what this means to us. Thank you.
