I can’t believe I’m 15 weeks today!!
Baby is the size of an apple. And because apples are the ONLY food that are magic in making me feel better, I figured I would do a survey this week
How far along?
Total weight gain/loss:
about 12 lbs. Yikes! This is more than I gained with the triplets at this point. Not worrying about it though. I’m eating healthy foods as junk really makes me feel sick (fries, chips, sugar). I think my body is just going to do what it needs to do and I know it will regulate after I have the baby. It always has before – might need to help it along with some exercise & Weight Watchers, but I will have 5 kids to chase, so I’m sure it will come off.
Yes and no. I am actually kind of over maternity clothes. Wearing them for about the last 2-3 years makes them not nearly as fun as the first go round! I am actually wearing lots of dresses & then lounge clothes during the day.
Just all the ones I accumulated from the boys!!
It’s okay, not great. I love it when I wake up and realize I haven’t woken up in 4-5 hours. I am already going to the bathroom at least 2 times at night.
Best moment this week:
Having some really good days with no nausea.
Worst moment this week:
Having some really bad days with lots of nausea.
You may think I’m crazy, but I have felt this baby move since 10 weeks. It’s not constant, but every few days I will feel a flutter, kick, or a roll. They were very very faint in the beginning and are slowly getting stronger. I usually feel baby if I’m sitting with my legs crisscrossed on the couch. I guess I just know what baby kicks feel like now and am super sensitive to them.
not really cravings. Things that make me feel better : lemon water, apples, protein (if I don’t have to smell it cooking – but even that is getting better)
I go back and forth. I am thinking girl since I feel a LOT like I did with my pregnancy with Harper. However, I have nothing to compare a singleton boy pregnancy, so I really have no clue. Ha! I think boy b/c any dreams I’ve had have been of a boy. I know each pregnancy can be very different, so I have no idea really. We find out soon!
thank goodness no but Braxton Hicks have already started?!?
Belly Button in or out?
Wedding rings on or off?
Not feeling/ wanting to die every day this week! I can tell my old self is coming back! Woo Hoo!!
I will take a belly pic one of these days. I just tried and couldn’t get the camera to cooperate, so I will try again later.
