Bumpdate – Pregnancy – Week 6&7

Pregnancy – Week 6&7 – Don’t worry. If I didn’t know I was pregnant before, I do now! Morning sickness (all day sickness) is in full swing. I enjoyed my fair share of dry heaving this morning. What a delight.

 Please enjoy this shameless selfie below.

I am so tired

This week’s life update:

  • No cooking or cleaning. My house is a filthy mess with take-out packages littering the floors.
  • My toddler has been sick for an entire week and I’ve felt like garbage, so even getting dressed and showering have been optional activities. Nap time is still not taking place due to sick toddler. I.am.so.tired.
  • No crafting or any pursuits have occurred. I barely blog. I wonder if I will ever see the light of day again.
  • My pants are tight already. Is it too soon to bring out the dreaded maternity wear?
  • I’ve harpooned my mom and sister into taken over household chores and childcare duties. I am waving my white flag. #thankGodforfamily
  • My husband is also joined me in the first trimester. His cravings are beer, Xbox and burgers.
  • I am still dragging myself to the gym. Partly due to bagel remorse.
  • I am NOT eating Paleo, but gluten free. (Minus yesterday’s bagel).
  • I can’t believe I still have 5 weeks left before the second trimester cavalry swoops in.
