Bump-date: 15 Weeks

Time to get the ball rolling on these... 15 weeks seems like a fine place to start. I actually wanted to post this last week, but didn't get around to it, so I'm a few days late. Standard operations around here, duh.

I will actually be back-publishing a few more of these - sorry for the onslaught if you aren't interested, but I want to have this documented for posterity! :)  Also, I have a brand-new "Baby W" page if you're looking at the real blog website. I'll update it with my weekly bump-date links and other pregnancy-related posts as we go. Find it here!

Also!! I have been taking real weekly pictures with a chalkboard and everything (C loves it, trust me - especially when I make him take 74 versions because I hate them all), but Week 15 got away from me and I missed it. So... A gym selfie has to do. Sorry not sorry. On with the fun!

How far along: 15 weeks

Baby’s size: a lemon

Total weight gain / loss: we will see next week at my 16 week check-up

Maternity clothes: effective this week, I have embraced my maternity work pants. They are still a bit too big, but they are so much comfier than trying to jam myself into my regular pants, which are not really conducive to the "hair-tie trick" and end up looking saggy and weird. Stretchy pants are all the rage, guys.

Sleep: I just noticed that I am started to have to pee several times a night... I'm usually up once a night, but just this week, it's been more like 2x or even 3. What the heck! Too much water before bed.

Loving: stretchy pants, the new dresses I ordered from Old Navy this week, sweets of any kind

Loathing: heat and humidity, the color of my hair (awkward), my allergies which are currently in full gear

Missing: let me tell you how much fun it is to be the only person not drinking for the 4th of July, at the lake no less! Womp, womp to that non-party.

Cravings: nothing new this week - we made pancakes again for breakfast on Monday before leaving the lake and they were on point.

Aversions: nothing new!

Symptoms: several days of afternoon headaches this week - that kind of sucked. And I have been noticing that I get a little dizzy if I stand up too fast.

Wedding rings: my sister and I accidentally switched wedding rings one afternoon at the lake - I panicked trying to get that baby on my finger (because hers is smaller) and thought I was done for already!! But then we realized the mistake, and I was able to sigh in relief - mine still fits, no worries!

Mood: I have been a little snappy and impatient lately - more than usual - oops. Trying to rein that in!

Husband: is talking about what to do to the bedroom we are turning into the nursery and trying to calm my raging desires to change everything in our house.

Can't wait for: baby's second business trip - we are on our way to Baltimore for few days next week!
