BAM! Just like that, we have a bump! It seemed as soon as I said I didn’t have one last week, it just popped out of nowhere. Then again, with a baby the size of an apple, I suppose I should suspect a little something, eh?
Here’s a little survey-style info that might be a bit more reader-friendly than reading paragraph after paragraph of my ramblings, which I guarantee aren’t helped by my sentimental hormones and my scattered pregnancy brain.
How far along? 15 weeks
Baby’s size? Apple (about 4 inches)
Total weight gain/loss: On Friday I was 4 lbs, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I tacked on another over the weekend.
Maternity clothes? My skinny jeans have finally gotten uncomfortable, but I don’t need maternity stuff just yet. I ordered a few maternity items just in case I have another growth spurt like this one though!
Sleep: One word – dreadful
Best moment this week: Seeing my mom and dad this weekend
Miss Anything? I really haven’t missed beer/wine nearly as much as I thought I would. In fact, I usually don’t miss it at all. The fam and I went to a wine tasting though on Saturday afternoon, and that wasn’t quite as fun with my decaf cappuccino. However, I’ve gotten used to it already. I guess to answer the question, I miss sleep the most.
Food cravings: I want ice cream every night. I tried to fight it, but I feel much more satisfied (and I don’t overeat it or other things) when I just let myself give into the urge. In short, there are two containers in my fridge right now.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing makes me sick, but my sense of smell is freakishly strong, which is often not so pleasant.
Symptoms: A good bit of my energy has returned; slightly moody; minor cramping (aka: round ligament pain – completely normal); acne (more on this later… possibly another post)
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but occasionally a little mean (sorry everyone!)
Looking forward to: Having a “real” bump that doesn’t just look like a little pot belly
I don’t know if this counts as my first Mothers’ Day weekend as a mom, but my family members were kind enough to send me cards anyway. Such sweeties!
I took my parents to a Tonic concert on Friday night, and we attended a wine tasting on Saturday. On Sunday, we all went to brunch, which was fantastic. Sadly, I also had to drop the fam off at the airport, but I have excellent news – they may have found a home they like here in NC. Yaaaaaay for
babysitters close relatives!!!
- What were you up to this weekend?
