How far along? 15 weeks
Weight gain: A whopping 6 pounds
Maternity clothes? Nope! But I did have to get a new bra with a wider waste band because mine was just getting so uncomfortable. After a long day at work it almost felt like I couldn’t breathe because it hurt so bad! I also got a huge hole in my favorite pair of jeans recently and I can’t decide if I should go buy new ones or just live off dresses and dress pants until I need maternity pants…
Sleep? I can’t seem to get enough! I already go to bed around 9 (I work at like 6 am) but I get really tired around 7:30pm and if I don’t sleep well (which is pretty often) I am tired all day. One day I actually fell asleep at work for like a solid 5 minutes and felt so guilty. If I could get a nap around 2pm I would be living the dream! Also I want one of those amazing maternity pillows. Any suggestions??
Best moment of the week? Seeing a little bump (sort of)! According to my lower back pain we assume our little one is laying pretty far back but over the weekend my husband and family said they noticed a little bump. You can really see it after I eat but I’m not sure if that’s a food baby or my actual baby…
Weird pregnancy symptom? I was pretty moody in the beginning (maybe I still am?) but not much other than that. When I was about 6 or 7 weeks I did cry because Dakota didn’t ask me if I had any laundry before he started a load and I cried yesterday over Cup of Noodles but thats about it! I guess I’m just not sure what’s considered weird or normal in pregnancy haha
Movement? My pregnancy app tells me that my baby can and is moving but I don’t feel anything. Sometimes I get this feeling in my stomach that I’m going down a roller coaster and I like to pretend it’s our baby doing somersaults!
Food cravings? Cup of Noodles. The other day I ate one, because we had no groceries, and I ended up eating two more because it was just. so. good. I don’t eat Cup of Noodles every day but if I get a whiff of noodles or imagine myself eating Cup of Noodles I will eat some! Other than that I basically can’t eat anything. I don’t know why but everything tastes gross except for cereal (specifically Reeses Puffs), potatoes, and apparently Cup of Noodles. #healthy
Anything make you sick? My coworker makes this oatmeal (brown sugar or cinnamon) and it is so nasty. I used to love when she made it but now I can’t stand it! I haven’t got sick enough to the point of throwing up but that is pretty close. Also meats make me sick. Red meat, chicken, fish, it’s all gross.
Gender? We find out next week! I want a boy and Dakota says he would be happier either way but I think he secretly wants a little princess 🙂 Any suggestions on how to do a cute announcement? Also I am trying to decided if I want to find out what we are having while we are in the doctors office or a little later when it’s just Dakota and I. Our first ultra sound appointment was pretty disappointing so I don’t want it to be a moment I miss.
What I’m looking forward to: Finding out the gender so we can finally decide on a name and start on the nursery! And of course all of the cute clothes 🙂
