Bumpdate: 15 Weeks...Plus Gender Reveal

Missing my baby-daddy photographer this week!


Due Date: August 5, 2015

How far along? 15 weeks 

Gender: It's a BOY!!!



Total weight gain:  I haven't stepped on the scale since last week...I'm not sure if it's subconsciously out of fear/anxiety or if I've just forgotten...but I kinda don't mind not knowing.

Stretch marks?: None yet! Using a mixture of creams/oils every night.

Symptoms: My face is broken out worse than it ever was when I was a teenager. It's terrible...and the moment I think it's clearing up a bit, more ugly bumps pop up on the other side of my face. Ick. I can also tell that my cheeks are already starting to look a little puffy. My face has always been the first noticeable place I gain weight, but I didn't expect it would be quite this early in the pregnancy.

Maternity clothes?: Not really.  I've been wearing "flowy" tops with these {stretchy} leggings that are truly like real pants. I've owned them for a couple of years, but they've been "lost" in my closet...so it was like Christmas morning when I found them! Still wearing my loose-fitting dresses. I did get a couple of maternity tank tops from Target, and they've been phenomenal to go under pretty much everything.

Sleep:  I'm sleeping comfortably. I wouldn't quite say "sleeping well," but I didn't sleep well before I was pregnant. I definitely have more energy than I had in the first trimester, but I'm still going to bed before 10:00 most nights!

Cravings: Still eating lots of fruit. 

Food Aversions: It's been weird lately...I'll be starving and craving something in particular, and then by the time it is ready to eat, I'm totally over it and the thought of eating it makes my stomach turn. Example: I reallllllly wanted Chick-fil-A nuggets the other day, but by the time I waited in the drive-thru line {which is ALWAYS long, no matter what time it is!} and got my nuggets, I couldn't get home and get away from that smell fast enough! Thank goodness that was short-lived...I'm back to loving Chick-fil-A nuggets!  

Mood: Mixed emotions ALL.THE.TIME! Quite the roller-coaster ride, I tell ya!

Best Moment of the Week:  Hands down, the best moment of the week was finding out we're going to be parents to a baby BOY!

Worst Moment of the Week: This was a difficult week, as we received some very sad news that a family friend had passed away. He was only 30 years old and died in a work-related accident. Such a tragedy that definitely put a lot of things into perspective and reminded us to never take anything for granted. I traveled back home to Kansas for the funeral...and it was tough, but I am so glad I was able to be there. Here's to you William...your ornery personality and constant smile will truly be missed!

Miss Anything? I'm back to missing deli meat...I just want to make a sandwich!

Looking Forward To: Hearing our little midget's heartbeat at our doctor's appointment on February 23!
