Bump Update: 4 Weeks

*this post has been schedule back to when I wrote this, almost a week ago :)

How far along?  4 weeks

Size of baby: The size of a poppyseed. Ooooh so tiny!

Total weight gain/measurements: Not much yet...

Maternity clothes: No, but I can't wait! They seem sooooo comfy!

Stretch marks: I have a couple on my tummy due to all the bloating, and raised injection sites (what a pretty mental picture!) from IVF, hoping that will be the last of them for awhile...

Sleep: I wish I could sleep all. day. long. -even if it's studded with odd dreams! I can't get enough of it. For 25 years, I could count the number of 'naps' I've taken on my fingers -even as a child. These last two weeks I've definitely added a couple more! More so than napping, I've been falling asleep at 7 or 8PM! Wow.

Best moment this week: Getting that first + pee stick followed by WONDERFUL blood results!
27dpLMP     146

Miss anything? I would give up ANYthing for this and not miss it. However, I do find myself dreaming of coffee often.

Movement: Way too early. Just cramping right now.

Food cravings: Oh my goodness, cheese! Any kind of queso as well actually. I've never been a fan of queso before (too spicy), but I've had it 4 times this week! I've also ate 3 jars of pickles in two weeks and I also definitely (for the first time in my life) have times where I want water!

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.

Gender: Unknown

Labour signs: I've got a long way to go! :)

Symptoms: Fatigue, sore breasts, achy lower back, cramping.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time: ECSTATIC doesn't describe it!

Looking forward to: Seeing how our HcG levels rise!!

Weeks 3 & 4: Poppyseeds


  1. Holy cow!! I didn't realize they are the size of poppyseeds!!! Teeny Tiny BABIES!! So fun. I think you would enjoy what to expect movie now ;)

  2. Yes, lucikly (or un-luckily depending on how you look at it! lol) we got pregnant through IVF so I found out I was pregnant at three weeks exactly. I'm five weeks today!
