5 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #3

Hey loves,

Our timing for baby #3 is a little off, but God is good and here we are. We make lemonade out of lemons.

There ain’t no hood like motherhood.

I will answer these series of questions each week, so that I can look back at compare when it’s later on in the pregnancy, and when it’s all over!

Okay, let’s have some fun!

How far along?

5 weeks

Total weight gain?

I’ve gained about 3 lbs

Maternity clothes?

Not yet

Stretch marks?

No, but I have been getting itcy!

How are you sleeping?

Pretty good. I’ll wake a few times to get comfortable or to use the bathroom.

Best moment this week?

Visiting Rhode Island for baby Jack’s 1st birthday party. We haven’t told many people the baby news, but it was nice talk about it there when visitng our family!

Missing anything?

It hit me this week that we are going to have a third baby in the house. The only thing right now I’m afraid I’ll miss is my body for another 9 months!


Not yet.

Food cravings?

Salty and sugary things! I’m also craving caffeine because I’m so dang tired.

Anything making you queasy?

The kitchen trash can has been turning my stomach this week, without fail!

Gender guess?

I’m thinking it’s a girl.

Labor signs?

No, not for many many weeks I hope!


Mild nausea, tired, bloated and frequent trips to the bathroom.

Belly button in or out?


Wedding rings on or off?

On. I actually never take my ring off.

Happy or moody (most of the time)?

Happy 85% of the time. When my hormones rage though, I run and hide from myself! I’m like, ‘who the heck just said that? Me?’ Or I’m crying at ordinary boring things.

Looking forward to?

I can’t wait for our 8 week scan! I want to see baby #3, and hear the heartbeat so I know this is real, and it is totally happening! Haha.
