Bumpdate 2.0: 15 Weeks




Due Date: December 1, 2017

How far along? 15 weeks 

Gender: It's a BOY!!!

Total weight gain:  8-9 pounds

Stretch marks?: None yet! 

Symptoms: I truly feel like the nausea is starting to get better...and then the next day I eat my words/thoughts and feel ick-tastic ALL.DAY.LONG.  I will say I've had a couple of good better days in a row, so I'll take any improvement and be thankful!

Maternity clothes?: I've officially transitioned to maternity pants.  Since it's too hot to wear leggings this time of year, I just had to accept the fact that the maternity clothes had to be put to use much earlier in this pregnancy than with Huston. Oh well...comfort is key, right? I'm so very grateful to my friend, Christine, who is letting me borrow her maternity clothes! She's got some great pieces, and I'm especially thankful for her work attire. I've found that business casual maternity clothes are kind of hard to find...and the cute ones tend to be expensive! Hopefully I can get a few more weeks out of my normal {non-maternity} flowy tops and the three or four loose-fitting dresses I currently have in rotation!

Sleep:  I laid down on the bed the other night to talk to Ryan {he was working on his laptop} right after I put Huston down {so around 8:15 pm}...and the next thing I knew I woke up to my phone ringing at 9:30 pm. I was so confused when I looked at the clock because I was just sure it was morning...but I knew there was no way it could be 9:30 am! Turns out, I'd fallen asleep at 8:30 pm, and Ryan just decided to let me get some rest since I was obviously exhausted. Most nights I usually make it until 10:00-10:30, but I never have trouble falling asleep!  

Cravings: Fruit Loops and grape juice...I guess the sweet tooth has officially set in! 

Food Aversions: Nothing that I can think of! Still finding that I LOVE something one hour and can't stand the scent of it the next hour.

Mood: Overall, I think I've been pretty happy! Sometimes I throw myself a little pity party when I'm feeling sick {especially in the mornings when it's difficult to get ready for work}, but I really try to keep it in perspective and remember that "this too shall pass," and it will all have been more than worth it when I'm holding a little miracle in my arms in a few several months!

Best Moment of the Week:  On Monday we got to hear the tiny babe's heartbeat. Right before we arrived for our appointment, Dr. Jacoby had been called to the hospital to deliver a baby, so I was terribly disappointed thinking we were going to have to reschedule the appointment. However, Dr. Jacoby's partner, Dr. Fleming was available to see us! Everything checked out great, and our little guy's heartbeat was healthy and strong. H went with us to the appointment, but I don't think he quite understood the thump-thump-thump sound of the little heartbeat. He does understand that there's a baby in Momma's tummy {he usually wants to lift up my dress to show people!}...and sometimes he shows people that the baby is in HIS tummy!

Worst Moment of the Week: We've had a pretty great week, so I can't think of anything "bad" to complain about! H and I missed Daddy over the weekend while he was gone to Kansas to play in the member-guest golf tournament with his friend, Brian...but Grammy came to keep us company while he was away!

Miss Anything? I miss the lunchtime naps that I used to take when I was pregnant with Huston...or any nap for that matter. Pregnancy with a toddler to chase around is a whole different store...no time for naps/resting whatsoever! Even despite the all-day sickness, I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. 

Looking Forward To: I'm going on a little girls getaway this weekend to Fredericksburg, Texas. Excited for a little R&R, but I know I'm going to miss my boys like crazy. This will be the first time I've been away outside of traveling for work. I know I'll have a great time and it's going to be good for me to get away...but I can't help but have a little anxiety about being away from my little family!
