How far along: 15 Weeks
How big is baby: Orange
Total weight gain: +1
Maternity clothes: Not yet, but I pretty much only wear dresses and a few of my shorts that were either too big for me or my workout shorts.
Sleep: So-so. I wake up anywhere from 1 to 3 times a night. I do a lot of waking up just worrying about the positions I’m sleeping in. It’s best to sleep on your left side once you hit the second trimester, so if I wake up and I’m not on my left side I get all concerned about it in the middle of the night.
Best moment of the week: I made keepsake booklets of all the cards Jason and I have sent each other throughout the years as well as all of our wedding cards. It was a lot of fun to read through these again. The best part was that I found two Bed Bath and Beyond gift cards I had forgot to remove from some of the cards from bridal showers, so that was a nice surprise.
Food cravings: nothing. I've been enjoying veggies more though so that’s a plus.
Food aversions: Pasta is my biggest aversion right now. Also, I really do not like sweets right now.
Symptoms: Well, I had a return of the nausea. It had been under control after I started taking Zofran. But, zofran had some pretty nasty side effects with me so I had to stop taking it for awhile to get everything back on track. About a day after I stopped taking it I threw up a few times, so that was fun.
Still pretty emotional this week.
Gender: We may have agreed on both a girl and boy name this week! That was pretty exciting.
What I’m looking forward to: Kendall’s wedding is this weekend! Yay! Couldn’t have come soon enough! A few more weeks and I’m not sure I’d still fit in the bridesmaid dress.
What I miss: Feeling good about my body… I've had a rough time with body image this week.
Next appt: September 10th
Workout/Fitness: I did a few smaller workouts this week. My back has been bugging me a bit, I’m not sure if I overdid something with lifting weights last week, but I haven’t been totally comfortable in my workouts this week.
