So let's see what's been happening the last couple weeks, shall we?
|15 Weeks - Cameo by "Camo the dog"|
|15 weeks - Trying to be funny and "create" a bump|
How far along/size of baby: I'm 15 weeks 3 days today. Baby is the size of a large navel orange! Wow! I think that seems pretty big! The baby measures around 4 inches and 2.5 ounces.
Total weight gain: Weight gained since my first doctor visit mid December is about 9 pounds.
Maternity clothes: Not quite yet but I did order some jeans that were 50% off. I'm hoping they fit when I need them. I've definitely moved from my smaller pants size back up 1 size though. Thankfully I have them from when I lost weight last year.
Sleep: I was never a good sleeper. I always woke up several times a night so this is no exception. I definitely get up at least 2, sometimes 3 times to go to the bathroom at night but it has gotten better from before. I definitely hate the nights I get up every 1-2 hours ALL NIGHT LONG. Those are not too often now though.
Best moment of the past 2 weeks: Hearing the baby's heartbeat when I was 14 weeks pregnant. That was the first time I actually heard it and it was more amazing than I thought it would be. Seriously, I was on cloud 9 for two days.
Miss anything: Not really. Eating a cold turkey sandwich sometimes.
Movement: None yet. Still too early.
Symptoms: I'm still pretty tired but much better than I was during the first trimester. I have a general lack of energy right now. I'm still working out but my motivation to even get up from the couch is lacking. Also it's weird, but I say that I can "feel my uterus" which I think sounds weird. But I can kind of feel the lower area when I'm pretty much doing anything...walking, running, moving in general. I also have had some discomfort in that lower area periodically. My guess is that it's my uterus expanding... ? Also, I get out of breath pretty quickly.
Food cravings: Fruit. Sweet things. Bagels.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The thought of greasy pizza or ground beef was turning my stomach a bit. It "might" be starting to go away though because pizza kinda sounds good right about now.
Have you started to show yet: No I don't think so. Again, I think my belly is just filled with food.
Gender: Not sure yet. Finding out March 21st! My guess would be a boy.
Belly button in or out: In.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: A bit of both right now I think. My lack of energy and being tired makes me moody. At times I feel a bit depressed. Don't get me wrong, I'm still excited about everything.. but you know... life takes a lot out of you mentally sometimes.
Exercise: Still exercising. Just not as vigorously. I think I'm using baby as an excuse. But I'm running (2-3x/week), indoor biking (1x/week), swimming (on occasion), barre classes (1x/week), and workouts at home. Oh and I did the stair climber and elliptical this week. I'll give a general exercise update post soon. I generally work out in some capacity 5 days a week.
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender on March 21st. It almost can't come soon enough. Also, really looking forward to having an actual bump and feeling movement.
