Every time I come back to write another post, I'm surprised at how many days have gone by since the last one! Really? I haven't written since Sunday? Granted, that's only 3 days, but i feel like I just wrote. Hmm... maybe that's why this pregnancy seems to be flying by!
I haven't been feeling 100% for the past couple of days... just a cold, I think, but I've been super stuffed up and have a yucky cough. I just get to take a box of tissues with me where ever I go! Lots of water, you know, all of that fun stuff.
Other then that, I feel pretty good today! I have off work, and Dan does (for the most part), too, so we'll get to hang out and have a nice day together. I have been looking forward to our once a week hang out days this month, so much. My schedule has been great, in that I only have to work a few days before i have off - the past 4 in a row is the longest stretch I've had to work all month! Since I am so tired all the time, I'm really glad that I don't end up like Dan with a 10 day work week (ugh). He's the one that will end up really exhausted! Poor guy, it's not his fault, and he hates it. Oh, well, he'll get through.
So I thought I'd take a page of someone else's book (or blog) and do a little pregnancy update questionnaire thingy... I haven't been doing a very good job of keeping track of how I feel during the pregnancy, and how things are changing, so maybe this will help. Here goes!
How far along: 15 weeks 4 days
Total weight gain: As of this morning, 3 pounds - down a pound from last week (I blame this cold)
How big is baby: 4 inches, 2.5 ounces - about the size of a naval orange
Maternity clothes: I have one pair of pants, and they are too big! Since my pre-pregnancy pants don't button, I'm loving my BellaBand!
Stretch marks: Nope!
Sleep: I feel great! I slept for about 10 hours last night (interrupted, of course, by bathroom trips for myself and the puppies)
Movement: No... hopefully we should start that this week! Usually between 16 and 20 weeks Mommy is able to feel Baby kicking
Food cravings: Not really... though there have been times when I swear that all this baby wants is pizza and wings!
Food aversions: I'm not a huge fan of meat like steaks and chicken right now... my chicken salad and pepperonis are about as far as I get
Belly button: no change
What I'm looking forward to: hitting 4 months! This seems so much further along then 3 for some reason
Weekly wisdom: Do as much as possible with Daddy, since this is the last time of "just us two"
Weekly joy: No more nausea!
(Thanks, friend, for that pg update!)
