~Pregnancy Week 5~

I've decided I am going to do these pregnancy questionnaires for every week of this pregnancy. I think it will be fun to look back on and an awesome way to keep everything organized (for the most part). 

So here we go, our first questionnaire. 

How far along? 5 weeks
Baby's Size: Sesame Seed!
Total weight gain/loss: No idea yet.
Maternity clothes? Nope not yet :)
Stretch marks? Only the ones I got from my kiddos.

Sleep: The last week I have been an insomniac and not sleeping. However, I think the fatigue is starting to set in. Best moment this week: Our positive BETA!! (BETA #1 was 902, BETA is set for tomorrow)
Movement: Nothing yet. The baby/ies are still just tiny embryos
Cravings: Pasta and Breads. Doesn't really matter what kind, as long as they taste good/
Symptoms: Nausea is creeping up but nothing bad (yet). I can feel the beginings of the fatigue but again nothing bad.
Gender: Girl(ies)!Labor Signs: None, of course. This questions is irrelevant for the next 7-8 months.
Belly Button in or out? In and honestly I highly doubt it will ever be any other way.
What I am looking forward to: BETA #2 and our first ultrasound!!!
Weekly Wisdom: 4 year olds are super smart ;). Hay is swearing I  am having twins (I am honestly not so sure) and she is already talking to the baby. Even before we knew for sure and to top it all she didn't even know that's why we went to LA. She truly amazes me. <3
Milestones: Getting a positive pregnancy beta! Our next Milestone will be doubling numbers!

The fifth week of pregnancy, or the third week after conception, marks the beginning of the embryonic period. This is when the baby's brain, spinal cord, heart and other organs begin to form.
The embryo is now made of three layers. The top layer — the ectoderm — will give rise to the baby's outermost layer of skin, central and peripheral nervous systems, eyes, inner ear, and many connective tissues.
The baby's heart and a primitive circulatory system will form in the middle layer of cells — the mesoderm. This layer of cells will also serve as the foundation for  baby's bones, muscles, kidneys and much of the reproductive system.
The inner layer of cells — the endoderm — will become a simple tube lined with mucous membranes. Baby's lungs, intestines and bladder will develop here.

(Today was my second BETA. I will have the results up tonight or tomorrow)
