Baby Diary Take Two: 6 Weeks


6 weeks

My sweet blessing,

Well well, you seem to be settling in nicely! Only 2 short weeks ago we found out you were coming and between being terrified of losing you and the excitement of your impending arrival, it seems you are doing so well. We saw your heart flickering away this week. You are so incredibly small in there it boggles my mind what you will become. The sickness has started in full force and it is amazing how much you are taking after your brother. You are not a fan of anything with a smell. But you are one spicy little burrito wrapped up tight in there–I've eaten a jar of jalapeƱos just since your conception. They taste amazing on everything. Daddy finds this hilarious. Keep growing, please. Get big and strong.

We love you so much,

  • BBQ (particularly the SMELL of it)
  • Chicken
  • All leftovers
  • JalapeƱos–on everything, and I mean everything
  • Grapefruit
  • Sandwiches
  • Second doctors visit and second ultrasound showed your heart flickering away inside me. So relieved.
  • “Morning” sickness started right on the dot at 5w5d as usual. I've only been this sick with Lloyd. It is all day and all night.
  • Debilitating exhaustion. Napping with Lloyd every single day. And total coma at night, unable to stay awake past 9:30. 
  • Belly is so sensitive I've given up on regular jeans with the Bella band. It's just not worth the enormous discomfort when you're chasing after a toddler all day. Although I feel ridiculous busting them out at 6 weeks.
