Hey-oooooo! Seriously y'all, am I really just now doing my first little bump date on the blog? If this is any indication of how things are going to go with having 2 kids then we are really in for it. Should I even buy a baby book for #2, or will that just make me feel worse for not filling it out? B-t-dubs, Presley's baby book has always been up to date. Who knows, maybe I will be able to keep up :)
Anywhozzles, here we are with the first weekly pregnancy update! I will have more accurate info after my appointment on the 15th.
And, before anyone gets all butthurt (I know, I'm so mature!)--just know that I don't usually enjoy pregnancy and that if you try to make me feel bad about it I will cut you. Let me be hormonal and bitchy for these 9 months without the "it's a blessing, you should enjoy every second" comments. Yes, I know it's a blessing and we are SO thankful and excited. But, that doesn't mean that I don't hate life a little bit. KTHANKSLOVEYOU!
I would never (HA!) make you suffer and look at a picture of what my face currently looks like. We've been snowed in for way too long and I couldn't even tell you where my make up is. Thus, I have morphed into Kate Middleton. Also, sorry for the blurry bump picture. Getting a tripod ASAP!
JUST DEAL WITH IT, Y'ALL!
How Far Along: 15 weeks
Size of baby: This babe is the size of an avocado! Or, as Adam would say, an alvacado. Never fails, every time he pronounces it that way.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Not sure on this one yet, but will know on the 15th at my next appointment! If I had to guess, I'm up about 5 or so pounds.
Maternity Clothes: Seriously though, I was about 45 seconds pregnant and whipped out my maternity jeans and haven't looked back. Mainly due to the nausea, I don't like for my pants to be too tight. And I'm good in the shirt department.
Gender: We don't know (yet!) but am hoping they will take a peek at it during my appointment! I'm about seven hundred bajillion percent sure it's a girl though. Which would be so fun! But, if it's a boy that would also be awesome sauce, because who doesn't want to have one of each?!
Movement: I'm not sure. I sometimes think I may feel something, but then again...maybe not! Definitely no strong movements going on in there.
Sleep: BLAH! I'll have to go back and look at my updates with Presley, but I don't remember the insomnia kicking in so early the first time around! I usually am awake from about 3-4am for no reason. I only get up to pee about 1 or two times a night, so I know it could actually be worse. I try to not drink too much water before bed.
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach and having a normal sense of smell. I had to throw away Adams toothpaste the other day because just the slightest smell of it made me sick. I also cried a few weeks ago because our fabric softener was too "flower-y smelling." So, there's that.
Cravings: The main thing I crave is freezing cold ice water. Oh my lanta! If there was ever any time where a person consumes too much water, it would be me right now. Also, I'm on a Root Beer kick right now that is out of control. As far as food goes, I really just want carbs and cereal.
Symptoms: Still a little nausea here and there if I let myself get too hungry, but I actually haven't thrown up in a few weeks. I am so glad to be over that! And thankfully, I haven't had the exhaustion this time around like I did with Presley. I mean, maybe I did in the beginning a little bit, but I was so busy with Presley that I never really noticed. So, yay! That's a plus!
Best Moment this week: Uhhh, well, we've had our first blizzard here in Northern Indiana. So, lots of QT with my two babes (husband and kid) was..........................................fun. Also, I have a job interview coming up at a really nice spa! I took a little break from Massage Therapy, but am anxious to get back at it!
