Week 15 Bumpdate


How Far Along? 15 weeks

Size of Baby: A navel orange!

Weight Gain: Up a total of 4 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight

 

Maternity Clothes: Officially using this band on my pants that I found at Target! This thing is a lifesaver and comes in multiple colors. I got this mint coral skirt and green dress from Pink Blush, but haven't bought anything else yet.

Stretch marks: Lathering on Earth Mama Angel Baby Body Butter when I remember to do it. I haven't been doing it as much as I should (#guilty)

Symptoms: The headaches have officially begun. For the past 1.5 weeks, I've been getting them daily and they last all.day.long. I've tried pinpointing what is triggering them and at first I thought it was my diet so I cleaned that up but I'm still getting them. Overall, though, I'm still feeling really good and the headaches are really the only symptom I have! Can't complain about that.

Cravings: My cravings have pretty much subsided these past two weeks! I've been able to eat healthier and stay more on track with cooking dinners and such. That's not to say I'm not splurging here and there or randomly eating Fruit Loops for dinner, but now that the initial shock of pregnancy and being able to eat what I want has wore off, I'm just not craving as much. Peaches, however, are pretty much my favorite lately along with anything fresh still. YUM!

Gender: TODAY IS THE DAY! {if Baby K cooperates-crossing our fingers!}

Mood: So so so happy.

Nursery: Billy is actually starting a big project for it this weekend...installing board and batten on the walls! I'm all kinds of excited about this. I figure since we did our kitchen remodel, we can definitely hopefully handle this! This is how we want it to look:

Movement: I'm not sure if it's movement or not, but I feel little "pops" at times when I'm laying down. It's what I would compare to a piece of popcorn popping, if that makes any sense. Basically what I'm trying to say is that I'm terrible at describing this, but I'm feeling something and just not sure of what it is yet??

Sleep: Glorious and getting lots of it!

Workouts: Still averaging 3-4 per week~30 minutes of cardio followed by strength training. Running is getting to be more of a challenge that's for sure...I get winded so easily and quick. I've switched to doing walk/jog/run intervals, which has helped tremendously, and I think this is my new "normal". Spin is still my favorite and I can't sing it's praises enough. Also, just to note, I'm not concerned about my weight in the slightest..I just really enjoy working out and want to stay healthy. 

What I Miss: A glass of wine here or there on our deck after a long day!

Belly Button in or out? 
In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Anything making you queasy or sick:  It didn't make me sick, but we had PF Changs one night for dinner and I felt HORRIBLE afterwards. You couldn't pay me to eat that again during this pregnancy. Nope-not happening!

Best Moment This Week: A couple things this week. Since it hasn't happened yet technically, I won't say the gender even though that's a big one, but hearing the heartbeat at our appointment last week was so special. I could listen it to it for hours and it makes me tear up a bit each time. Also, just being able to talk about the baby with my family/girlfriends and see how excited they are for us is so nice. They are so supportive and kind.

Labor Signs: No

Looking Forward To: Not baby related, but a relaxing weekend at home with zero plans. I need some downtime to just relax and get things done at our house! Also, I'm sure it will be filled with some clothes shopping for our baby...let's be serious.


And leave it to a baby to get me motivated to read again! I've finished three of these books already and am just really enjoying reading about pregnancy in general..it's so interesting and this girl has a lot to learn!!

Have you heard of the Solly Baby Wrap? It's a "Mom's best hot product winner" and I'm a huge supporter of the company! They donate $1 of every purchase to improve maternal health around the world. I have heard amazing things about the baby wrap (it's striped! total bonus), so when I got it in the mail this week I couldn't help but get so excited to carry around our little babe in it!

Sorry if I sound like a broken record all the time...so exciting this/so exciting that. But it's true!

  12. I had the worst headaches during the first trimester. I mean, WORST! I would lay in bed in the morning before work and just cry because I didn't know how I was supposed to get up and be human. I got a lot of recommendations but nothing worked EXCEPT water! I started chugging water and they went away almost instantly (after I had a good amount of water in me). When you think you've drank enough, drink more! I drink more than 120 ounces a day easily and I am in my third trimester. If you're dehydrated, that's a no bueno for a pregnant lady! I hope they go away for you soon! Whatever you find that works for you :)

  13. So happy for you lady and so happy baby K cooperated today! I used to get headaches a lot and it turns out my prenatal vitamin didn't have iron in it. Turned out to be the root of some discomfort (as well as some restless leg syndrome!) Hope they go away for you soon!
