As you can see from the photo nothing is slowing down at the Sparks’ house! We are so thrilled to announce that God willing we will be welcoming our first child in July! So in order to document this new adventure and keep out of town friends and family updated I will be doing the ever popular bump dates or bump updates. So without further adieu lets get to our first bumpdate!
My 7 week bump update:
When is your due date? July 1st, 2018- but we have been told with first babies they tend to go late rather than on time. So we might have a fourth of July baby.
How big is baby? According to my Ovia app he/she is the size of a raspberry.
Boy or girl? Not sure yet but we plan to find out and then reveal at a gender reveal party.
Do you have a name picked out? We have names roughly picked out but we don’t want to reveal them just yet.
How are you feeling? GREEN lol. I can happily say that I am not nauseous 24/7 anymore like I was when I got back from our cruise and for the first 4 weeks. However I quickly realized that eating small meals or grazing on tiny snacks all day keeps the green away.
Food cravings? SALAD, SALAD, SALAD with a dash of anything flavored lemon. I am starting to want more variety of foods and for the most part they are healthy which is helping me keep my weight gain at a super healthy level!
Feeling movement? Nope nothing yet. But I can’t wait!!!
Maternity clothes? Being that I am a curvy gal my clothes are loose fitting anyways so as far as shirts go I am still wearing my own clothes. However I have dealt with tons of bloating early on that made my old pants extremely uncomfortable. So I have already purchased my first pair of maternity jeans which are absolutely magical lol.
Sleep? I can’t get enough if that is what you are asking. Being a very active person I usually don’t need a nap to get through the day but now I take multiple small naps throughout the day. I am now going to bed about 8 or 9pm and will wait to the very last minute to wake up to get ready for work. Naps are my new best friend. Jason has become an expert in tucking me into bed to night. Bless him.
Anything you’re nervous about? My anxiety has tried to get the best of me lately. However one thing that I have found extremely interesting is how in tuned to my body I am now. So I can easily practice meditation and deep breathing to calm myself down. I think I have the normal anxieties that a first time mommy does. But I am lucky to have such a wonderful partner in Jason who has loved me through all the hormonal craziness, crankiness, and me constantly apologizing for being such a hormonal, hateful, crazy woman. Who he assures me I am not its all in my head. God bless him.
We had a wonderful first appointment and everything looks good and I quote, ” You have a beautiful sonogram picture.” So we are on our way folks! Looking forward to updating you on this adventure and the diy’s and such that we are so stinking excited to start working on.
Until next time keep creating sparks of love, life, and happiness!!
