5 Weeks

Today I'm officially 5 weeks pregnant. The fetus is only 3 weeks old though, and just beginning to form it's little brain!

I'm pretty anxious to get past 6 weeks because the risk of miscarriage drops dramatically after that.

No major nausea yet, just some slight waves of it cured by a cracker or light snack. What has been bothering me though is the HEARTBURN. Last night it woke me up in the middle of the night. I took some Tums and had to sit upright in bed in order to fall back to sleep. There's lots of unpleasant things happening these days... but it's all worth it right?

On a side note, Justin and I are *almost* set on our names:
boy: Paxton Karl
girl: Harper Lee
Twins? Harper & Paxton :)

My first doctor's appointment is in exactly two weeks. I can't wait to have ultrasound pictures to post!


  1. I can't wait to see it, either!

    I like your almost final names.

  2. I can't even imagine how exciting this time is for you! I love love love the names you picked out and I know you going to be a great mommy!

    P.S. I think it is so cool you can see pics of your baby throughout development!
