5 Weeks Update… but no picture!

Here’s what Alpha Mom has to say about Week 5.  For you other bloggers this is probably the 4th or 5th time you’re reading this, but she’s so funny!

Your baby:

  • Is about the size of a sesame seed.
  • Looks more like a tadpole than a human-variety baby.
  • Making developmental leaps and bounds by the hour like a damned GENIUS CHILD.


  • Are totally for-real pregnant, with a positive home pregnancy test to prove it and everything.
  • Are definitely popping a prenatal vitamin everyday — you can pick them up at any grocery store or vitamin shop. Your doctor can also write you a prescription, but if your insurance doesn’t cover them it’s perfectly fine to buy them off the shelf.
  • If you don’t FEEL very pregnant yet, don’t panic. It’s early. Breast tenderness and fatigue may be all you’ve got at this point.
  • Oh, and yes, it is time to stop smoking, drinking, doing drugs and licking inner-city mailboxes, if you’re into that sort of thing.


So far I don’t feel pregnant, I feel like I just have a big ole massive case of PMS.  I have had two major cravings this week- one for a cold cut and the other for a banana milkshake.  I indulged both of these cravings, even though I shouldn’t have eaten the cold cut because of the lunch meat.  But, one little piece of bologna isn’t going to hurt anything, right?  The other thing I’ve noticed is bad dreams!  I keep having really vivid dreams and they’re mostly bad.  Not necessarily scary, but just negative.  Like I do something wrong or somebody ends up mad at me.  So weird.  Last night I had two SCARY dreams.  One involved a naked man on a motorcycle and the other involved a gangster in a bar. 

And, no picture because there’s definitely nothing pregnant about this belly!


  1. LOL you'll start to notice that everything about the 2nd pregnancy is a little more non-chalant. I find myself saying "oh, what could 1 little piece of this really hurt?" on a weekly basis, haha. So excited to get to keep up with your weekly posts. This is fun :)

  2. Exactly Brandy! In fact I craved Subway for a few weeks, so I definitely indulged a few times. I figured it was still healthier than McDonalds' least that's what I told myself. ;) Now I crave Taco Bell, maybe I should go back to Subway, lol.

  3. oh my gosh Nicki's subway puts me to shame. I had chocolate milkshakes like every week! Your dreams are funny when you read them...sorry if they are scary to you.

  4. When I was pregger's with Harley, I craved McDonald's cheeseburgers. Yeah, I LIVED at the Bryans Road McDonald's for lunch. The two cheeseburger meal was and still is my favorite, LOL!!!!! Glad your not feeling the tiredness yet!!!! Praying for a healthy pregnancy!!!!
