How far along?
I am 15 weeks and 2 days today! It is my second week of the glorious (I’m told) second trimester!!
How big is bean?
Bean is the size of a big lemon and weighs between 2 and 3 ounces–that’s about what a chicken’s egg weighs.
Total weight gain/loss?
After we found out I was pregnant, I lost 10 pounds because of my terrible morning sickness. Since I hit my low weight about a month in, it has been holding pretty steady. So I guess I’ll just say: no weight gain yet!
A few things! In particular, maternity jeans and one maternity top. I am exclusively wearing maternity jeans and stretchy pants–my pre-preggy jeans are retired until after Bean arrives. My maternity jeans are still too big, so I wear a BellaBand that helps me keep them up (or I pull them up 15 times a minute). I like my maternity shirt because it makes me look pregnant instead of like I ate too much!
Sleeping in is tough because I have to pee at 6 am. But really no issues yet (*fingers crossed*).
Best moment this week?
My best moment of week 14 wasn’t really a moment. I have been feeling SO MUCH BETTER than I was pre-second trimester, so I’m celebrating that.
Well, as much as I am feeling better, over the weekend I took two giant steps back in terms of my morning sickness. I was SO sick this weekend. But I am having more good days than bad days which is a huuuuuge improvement over the 5-7 times a day that I was getting sick during my second month. My belly is starting to get hard and is noticeably (to me and sometimes Chad, but to no one else really) bigger! I wake up with headaches, but they go away with water and food. And, like all pregnant women, I gotta pee all the time.
Yup. If it’s not super sweet or plain white and starchy, I’m not interested. And really, is there anything grosser than eggs?
It’s a girl, I’m sure. Of course we won’t know until January, but I don’t care, I’ve decided.
Belly button in or out?
What I miss?
The idea of having a glass of wine–although wine, well really all booze, completely turns my tummy. I miss having regular BMIs, does that count? And I miss exercise, which has been zilch because of the baby sickness, but I am going to try to start a regular habit.
What I’m looking forward to?
FEELING LIKE A HUMAN AGAIN
The baby is doing some cool stuff this week. Like she has bones that would show up on an x-ray. She can also see light (even though she can’t open her eyes). She’s also wiggling around a lot, but I can’t feel it just yet–I CAN’T WAIT until I can feel her move.
12/12–At this appointment: Diabetes/Sugar test and some genetic screening
