I thought I would document the growing bump each week via my beloved chalkboard! The first pic we took at 8 weeks after my first ultrasound. I wanted one picture with the chalkboard the way it was when I announced the news! Also happy to get one picture in our old apartment before we moved to the townhouse :)

Now for the real deal. I wouldn't say it is necessarily a cute baby bump yet, it is merely a collection of the mass amounts of peaches, peanut butter & egg and cheese bagels that I have been eating. Luckily so far I have only been craving healthy foods, I could eat fruit for every meal! Peaches are my favorite (those Georgia Peaches sure came in handy) but I also love eating apple slices with peanut butter, pears, plums & watermelon. I have no interest in red meat, lots more chicken & pork chops (dipped in applesauce) these days. Coffee is the only thing that makes me not feel so great - although I did have a few puking episodes after eating steak & mashed potatoes, lasagna & enchiladas. 

Alas, the 10 week BUMP.

PS.  I don't even know what a quail looks like. I don't even know how big a prune is.


  1. I love these! that is the cutest bump ever!!

  2. You are just adorable. YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. where did you get your chalkboard?

    1. I made the chalkboard - here is a link to the post where I show the how-to :)

  4. I would also like to know where u got the chalk board????

  5. Hey Jessica! I'm almost 8 weeks along and I used your idea with the chalkboard, except I have a whiteboard I use with just about every color imaginable. I've posted pictures every week so far to my facebook and everyone has loved it. I love your blog and Harper is SO stinkin' cute!

  6. So I hope you don't mind, but I am totally stealing you chalkboard idea! I saw this on pinterest and think it's such a wonderful way to show pregnancy progression!! I just hope I will be half as cute as you in all your bump pictures!

  7. Hi! Just found your blog and I LOVE it! I am 4.5 weeks pregnant -woohoo!- and I old my husband we HAVE to do the chalkboard thing! Thank you for an awesome idea! Quick question: do you free-hand all your weeks or do you do some sort of stencil/outline thing? Each week looks amazing and I know I'm not THAT creative! :)
    Thanks and keep on rocking Chica!

  8. Hi i have a question. It's kind of personal. But I also didn't find out I was pregnant till 6 weeks and had been drinking alcohol. Did that happen to you? I am freaking out.

  9. Dear Jessica,

    I'm just writing to let you know that your chalkboard project has been featured on my italian blog about pregnancy & co called (translation: the stork is coming!). Thanks so much for your inspirazion.
