15 Weeks {Baby Dorey #3}

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Size of Baby: I'm currently 15 weeks and baby weighs about 2.5 oz + is measuring about 4", or the size of an apple/avocado. 

Total Weight Gain: I really don't know how much I have gained, but I definitely have gained. I started this pregnancy heavier than I was with Wyatt or Stella and I've probably gained around 7-10 pounds (or at least that's how I feel). I gained exactly 40 pounds in both of my previous pregnancies so I'm curious to see what happens this time around. 

Symptoms: I've been feeling pretty good lately. I still get pretty tired around lunch/afternoon, but some days I can fight through it if I just take some quiet time. I sleep better at night if I don't nap, so I try not to. I've been getting headaches about once a week that are pretty rough--usually make me throw-up. 

Food Cravings/Aversions: Eating is still kind of hard because nothing (at home) sounds good. Unfortunately I'd rather eat burgers and McChicken sandwiches. I've been trying to throw in some salads to my diet. When nothing sounds good it's so hard to cook dinner but it's getting better. 

Movement: I have felt a few little flutters. It's usually right after Wyatt and Stella go to bed and I sit or lie down.

Purchases: I've made several purchases since the beginning of this pregnancy, but all for myself. I started wearing maternity pants much earlier this time around (although they're  a little big, other pants just don't fit in the hips). I've bought some jeans, shorts, leggings, and one dress. My mom brought me a couple tops this weekend from Old Navy and I love them. And I had a friend give me some dresses but I can only really wear one right now. 

Best Moment of the Week: We had the best weekend celebrating Wyatt's 4th birthday and Stella's first dance recital! I'm also enjoying some extra quiet time this week because Wyatt is with his grandparents.

Looking Forward To: A three day weekend and a very bittersweet going-away party for our dear friends.
