Progress Photos/update Weeks 5-10

Since the week we found out we were expecting a little one we started doing progress photos.  I only missed week 6 and thats because I was super duper sick 24/7…it was terrible….just terrible.  Okay…here we gooooooooo….


How far along? 5 Weeks.   April 15th, 2015 Total weight gain/loss: same weight Maternity clothes? Not yet Stretch marks? Nope, I started using “Mamma Bee” by Burts Bees oil the day I found out, I’m realllly hoping for NO stretch marks! Sleep: My lower back has been hurting so that has prevented a perfect nights sleep, but nothing terrible yet. Best moment this week: hmm…still in shock about finding out. This weekend we will be telling our immediate families so that will be pretty exciting! Miss Anything? Well, not yet but I know I will miss Sushi! Movement: not yet Food cravings: none Anything making you queasy or sick: yes! Mexican food (which totally sucks because it’s me favorite!), certain smells, feeding the dogs….the smell…yuck! Gender: A.J. thinks boy, I think Girl Labor Signs: No, No, NO! “Baby Angel” you have a long way to go… Symptoms: cramping, tender breasts, hurting lower back, evening nausea and headaches and super, super tired ALL.THE.TIME. Belly Button in or out? in Wedding rings on or off? on Happy or Moody most of the time: A little bit of both. I have definitely felt myself be more moody, especially towards hubbs….sorry love 📷 Looking forward to: This weekend when our immediate families find out AND our first appointment when I’m 9 weeks!

***Week 6 No photo….way to sick***

How far along? 6 Weeks.   April 22nd, 2015 Total weight gain/loss: same weight Maternity clothes? Not yet Stretch marks? Still none, I switch between “Mamma Bee” by Burts Bee oil and belly cream Sleep: eh, lower back pain but still getting pretty good sleep Best moment this week: Went to Angels game in Anaheim


Miss Anything? Being able to eat anything. EVERYTHING makes me sick, thinking about food, smelling food, seeing food. Pure misery Movement: not yet Food cravings: none Anything making you queasy or sick: yes. EVERYTHING. Everything I eat, smell, see, think about. Pretty much all food. I cant even type the specifics without feeling queasy its miserable. Gender: A.J. thinks boy, I think Girl Labor Signs: No, No, NO! “Baby Angel” you have a long way to go… Symptoms: light cramping, lower back pain, and 24/7 nausea all the time, every single day from the second I wake up to the second I fall asleep. I feel terrible. Belly Button in or out? in Wedding rings on or off? on Happy or Moody most of the time: not exactly moody, just not happy with how sick I am. Looking forward to: Not feeling sick anymore. I just want the nausea to go away.

This photo is so horrible.  No make up and feeling like death!  It is truly true to how I have been feeling around this time.


How far along? 7 Weeks.   April 29th, 2015 Total weight gain/loss: lost 2 pounds. Maternity clothes? Not yet Stretch marks? none…BUT I am allergic to almonds and I was breaking out every single time I used my Burts Bees product and I finally looked at the ingredients and what do you know…there’s almond oil in both of them LOL duh Ashley! So I will be finding a new cream to use… Sleep: same as before, just lower back pain but still sleeping pretty well. Best moment this week: ummm….all I have been doing is laying in bed because I’m so sick….but I did go to Urgent care and they gave me some medicine to help with my nausea so I guess the best moment this week was when I first took the medicine and I had a bit of nausea relief Miss Anything? Not feeling nauseaous. Movement: none Food cravings: none, I wish I did Anything making you queasy or sick: ALL FOOD. Gender: A.J. thinks boy, I think Girl Labor Signs: No, No, NO! “Baby Angel” you have a long way to go… Symptoms: light cramping, headaches, all day nausea, very tired all the time Belly Button in or out? in Wedding rings on or off? on Happy or Moody most of the time: a little bit of both.   Mostly unhappy from being sick and in bed for almost 2 weeks Looking forward to: Our first appointment in 2 weeks and not feeling nauseaous anymore

Stretch marks? Still none Sleep: not sleeping well due to bad back pain Best moment this week: hmm….made it thru 2 days of working at the antique mall Miss Anything? I miss being able to do every day normal stuff. Because of my nausea I cant do much but lay here. I also miss being able to eat food, almost everything makes me sick, nothing sounds good at all. Movement: not yet Food cravings: none, I cant wait to crave food! Anything making you queasy or sick- yes, pretty much all food. Chicken, Onions, garlic, mac and cheese…barf!

ow far along? 9 Weeks.   May 13th, 2015 Total weight gain/loss: same Maternity clothes? No but none of my pants or shorts fit anymore! Stretch marks? None, I started using coca butter and it hasn’t made my skin break out! Sleep: not sleeping well…next week I’ll be getting a body pillow! Best moment this week: As you can see in the photo I am starting to feel better (thanks in large part to medication and eating every 30 in-hour).  We had our first appointment and got to see our baby for the first time AND got to hear little baby Angel’s heartbeat!  It sounded so fast but the Dr. said they all sound fast when they are that little!


Miss Anything? umm…the weather is getting hotter and I wish I could wear my shorts that I have but none of them fit me…and I’m not ready for maternity clothes so I guess I miss being able to fit in my old clothes. Movement: not yet Food cravings: none, I wish I did though Anything making you queasy or sick- yes, same as last week but the medicine is helping out a lot with that. Gender: A.J. thinks boy, I think Girl Labor Signs: None, and I hope to not feel any for a long, long time! Symptoms: nausea is better because of medicine, back still hurts but cramping is going away. Belly Button in or out? in Wedding rings on or off? on Happy or Moody most of the time: I’m definitely feeling happier nowadays! Looking forward to: Getting all my blood results back and knowing everything with me is going well…and finding out the gender! oh, and next weekend is our family reunion.

How far along? 10 Weeks.   May 20th, 2015 Total weight gain/loss: gained alb Maternity clothes? None yet but I’m tempted…anything that sits tight or snug on any part of my stomach bugs me Stretch marks? None!  I use coca butter after every shower! Sleep:Getting much much better, especially since I got a new body pillow! Best moment this week: Celebrating A.J.’s 30th birthday! (actually this was week 9… getting my weeks switched up! yikes…pregnancy brain?)  Went to Fresno for our family reunion and celebrated Memorial Day.





(The angle of the photo of my bump and my Grandpas headstone makes my belly look a little bigger then it really is…) Miss Anything? Eh…not really…not anything new yet… Movement: none Food cravings: none…I wish I would though! Anything making you queasy or sick- Same things as before Gender: A.J. thinks boy, I think Girl Labor Signs: None (thank goodness) Symptoms: nausea and exhausted through out the day…cramping is almost all gone. Belly Button in or out? in Wedding rings on or off? on Happy or Moody most of the time: I’d say mostly happy Looking forward to: Our appointment next week!  We will get all my blood tests back and check on the babies heartbeat!
