Pregnancy Update - Week 7

(Side Note: I took some photos along the way documenting my pregnancy. I didn't do it every week but the weeks I did do I will share with you over the coming days)

How far along? 7 weeks
Maternity clothes? No. Everything is fitting perfectly.
Sleep? Sleeping as normal as always.
Best moment this week? Telling my colleagues. My doctor has put me on 'Arbeitsvorboten' because I work with babies and toddlers and he thinks it would be better if I don't work for my pregnancy due to infections from dirty nappies etc. I am finishing work on Tuesday (20th October) so I had to break the good news to all of my colleagues (who also happen to be my friends). It was too early in the pregnancy for me to announce it but because of the situation I had to. It was so much fun telling everyone individually. It was a day of screams, tears and so many hugs. I was on a high and honestly did hardly any work. We are not telling family until we see them. 
Symptoms? Lots of hormonal acne around my mouth but other than that nothing.
Crazy and vivid dreams
Food cravings? None
Food aversions? Nope
Gender? Too early to find out and we aren't 100% sure whether to or not. People have no problem voicing their opinion on the subject.
Labor signs? None
Belly button in or out? In
Movement? no, it's way too early
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody? Deliriously happy
What I miss? Nothing really but if I had to choose something I would say a glass of red wine. I feel this is going to be the regular answer for this question. 
What I'm looking forward to? Being able to talk to my 'German' friends about the pregnancy now. However I am not looking forward to trying to keep this brilliant news from my mother. 

I hope you stay on this journey with me. I would love to bring you along for the ride.

With Love,

  1. This is the real facts that some women are not getting pregnant after their marriage. Due to this condition they are going to be spending a depressed life because these women are not having the feeling of being a mother of their baby. The Feminine hypno processes can help the woman to get pregnant.
