I thought I had something going on last week – you know, a little proof that I was pregnant. Now it is just in my boobs – which have grown a whopping 2 cup sizes (in a bra) and 3 cup sizes (in a bathing suit). If you don’t believe me, ask my girl La La Lisette – I’ve sent her PG-rated pictures of my tots to prove that I am not making up my new size. My boobs are humongous in comparison to the chest that was once small enough to go braless.
How far along are you? 15 weeks
How I’m feeling: Wake up at 6am and full of energy – eat breakfast and crash for an hour or two – get back up and feel great until 3ish – crash again – then around 5 I am ready to rock until 10! It is so weird…
Total weight gain: 5 lbs
How big is baby? We gots a Florida Orange.
Maternity clothes: I’ve been buying bigger bottoms and dresses. None of my bottoms pre-pregnancy fit (too tight in the hips and thighs). I’ve also had to buy new bathing suits b/c none fit from last year!
Sleep: Usually from 10pm – 6am with 1-2 bathroom breaks.
Best moment this week: Getting my insurance sorted out so I can go see my new doctor next week! Hoping that the midwife will do an ultrasound and maybe tell us the sex!
Movement: I thought I felt a flutter, but it could’ve been gas. My primary care says I should start feeling butterfly flutters soon.
Food cravings: Fresh fruit – strawberries, watermelon, bananas, honeydew melon. Apple juice. Eggs.
Food aversions: Chicken – even eating it cooked makes me yak.
Labor signs: A little cramping, lower back pain, and
Belly button in or out: Still the same ole innie.
What I miss: Feeling comfortable in my own skin.
What I’m looking forward to: Meeting my new doctors and finding out the gender soon!
Randoms: I think I am growing the baby in my boobs… that is how big they’ve gotten. Also, I have had wicked bad stomachaches nightly from anything and everything I eat. ESP Chicken … it is making me super sick to my stomach – even hours after I have eaten it.
