5 weeks

Starting weight - 162 lbs
5 weeks - 163 lbs

Baby Button is the length of a grain of rice!

According to the internet, "Your baby now resembles a teeny tadpole (complete with a tiny tail) and is about the size of an orange seed. The circulatory (or blood) system, along with the heart, is the first part of that tiny body to be functional; and as your baby's heart starts to form, you may even be able to see it beating on an early ultrasound. Another part of your little tadpole that is under construction: the neural tube, which will eventually become your baby's brain and spinal cord."

My symptoms seem to be right on track. So far I have no morning sickness but I do have occasional soreness in my stomach and back. My thighs are sensitive like a sunburn -which is very odd (feeling like a large bruise and they're warm to the touch). I can smell EVERYTHING and I'm also sneezing more than usual. The girls have already increased, which I was not looking forward to. It'll be interesting to try and find clothes that can harness their power rather than advertise their presence.

On a side note, we went to Target today to look at their maternity section -  all of their blouses and dresses only have room for up to a C cup - whaaa? I didn't even have C's to begin with! I'm assuming most pregos grow larger than C's. It seems like they are only marketing toward a certain demographic rather than allowing a more realistic population buy their clothing. I'm going to try my friends' old maternity clothes to see what brands work best before I really start buying things. I may inherit some items, too!

  1. You need to talk to Holls. I'll bet she's got some maternity clothes that might suit you. :) Especially since Anna Kate is the last. :)
