Week 4

How far along? Looks like 4 weeks….

Total weight gain/loss: couple pounds gained.  I’m not sure how y’all lose weight in the beginning.  Maybe I still will, but right now I’m starving all the time.  I don’t eat all the time but I’m sure starving all the time.

How big is baby? Baby is the size of Poppyseeds. At 4 weeks your baby, now known as a blastocyst, is practically microscopic – a teeny ball of cells. Baby is busy settling into new home, prepping for all the crucial development it’ll be doing over the next six weeks.

The Stuff I Cooked Last Night

Blame the title on hubby… Anyway, Last night as I was driving home from school, I thought about this pasta I had one time.  It is based off a Rachael Ray recipe and I thought, you know it’s raining, cloudy, cool, fall, this sounds good so I stopped by the store, grabbed ingredients and away I went.

Needed: Pasta, 28oz Can Italian Crushed Tomatoes, 1 Cup Ricotta Cheese, half a small onion, 1 Cup {store bought} Pesto, Italian Cheese (I used 2 cups), Parmesan cheese (I used about a cup).  Plus I had some hamburger that needed to be used up so I decided to throw that in.

Brown up the hamburger, sweat out the onions and cook up the garlic.

The Good, Bad & Ugly

***Please don’t judge me… I’m just nervous!***

So here we are, it’s 10:54 at night and I have to type this up.  Not always does our life go as we planned.  Not always do we see the good in all circumstances.  In fact, I have no idea when this will post at this point because I have no idea when hubby and I are going to announce to the world that we’re expecting (heck even typing that freaks me out) but along with all the good in our life comes the bad and sometimes we also just want to remember times like this.  So this may just be for me, but please share with me.

Last night I took the pregnancy test that came back positive.  When I walked out of the bathroom with it in my hand I just showed hubby.  He jumped up off of the love seat throwing his food to the side and bear hugged me.  Not the best move as I was kind of nauseous feeling anyway, but the thought that the test came back positive made me sick as all get out to my stomach.  To say I didn’t react as a normal happy person would is a bit of an understatement.

I went to school today and we’re studying Othello by Shakespeare.  All I could think about was, is my sweatshirt hiding my bloated stomach.  I know, not what most people would be thinking but I kind of feel that 16 year old in me coming out.  No, I never was pregnant at 16 just to clarify.

Most days I see myself as a first time around, traditional college student.  Sadly I see myself in life where most people of that age would find themselves instead of someone who just turned 30 this summer.  That right there is enough to scare me out of my mind.

So anyway after school I usually go hang out in the library, read blogs, study, etc for a bit and then I go home.  Well I wasn’t feeling all that well so I just decided to go ahead and come home.  Poor HickChickBritt, I was bugging the crap out of her today.  I just seriously needed someone to talk to because it helped keep my mind off what was going on.  Sorry I couldn’t tell you at the time HickChickBritt!!

Total weight gain/loss: Dunno, guess I’ll do an initial weigh in….

How big is baby? Your baby is still just a glimmer in your eye.

Maternity Clothes? Nope although I felt kind of bloated and wondered why my clothes felt tight.
