15 Weeks

How Far Along: 15 weeks as of Monday

Size of Baby: Navel orange

Weight Gain: 4 pounds - this is starting (quickly) to become a stressor for me so I may or may not continue to weigh myself and share.  I know I'm doing what is best for my health and fitness and the baby's and that's what I need to focus on.

Stretch Marks: Not yet - hopefully not ever

Maternity Clothes:  I've got several pair of pants recently that are elastic-waisted so that I can wear them throughout pregnancy and after.  I have maternity items, but my belly just isn't quite big enough for them yet. I'm really loving these pants.

Gender:  Not sure yet, but I made an appoint for us to get a 4D ultrasound down next weekend so that we can take CT and he can see his baby brother/sister.  This will also tell us a little early (16 weeks) what we can expect in August!

Movement:  Feeling little flutters- like butterfly wings

Sleep:  It's not great - I could use more (said every mom ever) and it would be nice if my toddler would sleep in his own bed all night.  He usually starts there, but ends up coming into my room in the middle of the night and instead of fighting it, I just pull him into bed with us.

Missing:  Wine.  Other than that I'm pretty good.  

Loving:  Slowing down and embracing little moments with CT; trying to really prepare him (and me) for sharing the love.

Craving:  Lemon in my water.  Fruit and fresh veggies.  Avocado. Spring!  

Feeling: Finally back to myself! I am excited about meal prep and cooking and all the things I love and that just makes my heart happy.  (As well as my hubby's tummy)

Looking Forward: Spending as much one on one time with CT as possible.  Date nights with my husband.  A potential family vacation over spring break.  I'm really excited about the appointment so that CT can really see the baby - he talks about the baby a lot, but I'm excited to see his reaction when he realizes it's real.

Best Moment(s): Saturday night CT stayed with his Ana and Papaw so that Justin and I could go on a Valentine date.  It was so nice to get dinner and then come home to crawl into bed and watch Shark Tank rather than Blaze or Elmo.  Yes - we are that old married couple.


Feel free to leave me some love. It makes my heart smile.
