Pregnancy update weeks 5-8

We finally made it to our first appointment..and I’m already ready to go back to see our little nugget again!

Now before I update you all on these past couple of weeks, here’s our first picture of little baby Abraham 🙂

pregnancy weeks 5-8

These past couple of weeks have been pretty uneventful since my morning sickness all day nausea and exhaustion has kept us pretty much cooped up. Ive spent lots of time on the couch re-watching every TV show I’ve ever watched.. and we are pretty much out of options at this point! We do however make a point to get out each day, whether its to the grocery store or to go look at all the baby things!

Going to work has been rough, so I lucked out that we had time off scheduled and was able to fully veg out (although I’m sure the hubs would have preferred to spend our time off in Europe! But this mama had a hunch so we didn’t book any trips!)

Ari and I celebrated our 2nd Wedding Anniversary September 3rd and our biggest gift was getting to see our little babe the following morning! September 4th was like Christmas morning! I had a hard time falling asleep and woke up super early because my nerves were getting the best of me! We got to the appointment and I almost lost it while checking in… talk about hormonal! And finally it was our turn to get our ultrasound! I was literally shaking by this point and it took the tech a hot minute to find our little babe, so you can only imagine what was going through my head.. but then there our tiny little human was all perfect and beating away! BRING on the tissues! I finally felt at ease knowing that my little babe was doing just fine 🙂

Naturally after the appointment we made our first baby purchase and bought our little one a set of 3 onesies! (let me tell you buying gender neutral is tough!) And then I sent hubby to Kinkos to make copies of our little sonogram images..because lets face it I am putting them up all over the place!

And for the remaining weeks I thought it would be fun to answer these questions and see how they change as the weeks go by!
