*Each bumpdate is from the week before. I am currently 15 weeks 5 days.
Thanksgiving weekend and my 26th birthday!
Baby This Week:
Baby this week is the size of a lemon or as the ultrasound tech said, a clenched fist!
Baby can now frown, grimace, pee and possibly suck its thumb! Baby is stretching out this week and weighs 1 1/2 ounces!
I received a beautiful Thyme maternity sweater from my parents for my birthday! It fits now and will accommodate a growing belly too! Work pants and shirts still fit well! Certain workout pants will have to go into retirement as the way the waist band digs into my belly is starting to feel very uncomfortable.
No new stretch marks but I am starting to notice my belly actually sticking out at night. It looks more like a food baby then a real baby but there is definitely something there! Plus it’s hard as a rock!
I was so sure when I stepped on the scale this week that I would have gained a little weight as eating was slightly better this week. I was shocked to see that I am now down 12 pounds since the beginning of the pregnancy.
No movement yet!
Thanksgiving dinners posed to be a problem as my stomach can’t handle that much food in one sitting. Also had a hard time eating turkey.
Still craving sour patch kids and this weekend I was LOVING sour cream and onion chips but was really hoping to find sour cream and onion rings!
Belly growth for sure this week! Boobs have taken a break, thank goodness! Rarely feeling nauseous but sometimes it can sneak up on me! Great second trimester symptom: extra energy!
What I Miss:
I am really starting to miss eating normally. Sitting down for a big meal seems to be a thing of the past for now. I never feel hungry and have to constantly force myself to eat, which is very strange for me.
Not for a long time hopefully!
Still keeping things neutral! Tried to examine baby’s head in the ultrasound picture with the facts from this website but could not figure it out! Any guesses?
Belly Button In or Out:
In! I really have to take my belly button ring out! It’s starting to actually hurt sometimes!
Wedding Rings On or Off:
On and loose!
What I’m Looking Forward To This Week:
Looking forward to the long Thanksgiving weekend and the short work week that follows! Also looking forward to Yoga class on Wednesday because my lower back has been hurting a little and I want to see if I can stretch it out!
Daddy This Week:
Daddy’s been making mommy slightly more angry this week then usual. Ha ha! He still “can’t believe” that he got pulled over only doing 22 km/hr over the speed limit…on our way to our first ultrasound. Mommy keeps rolling her eyes. It will certainly make for a good story in the years to come!
Daddy also was in BIG trouble Thanksgiving weekend as that Saturday was Mommy’s birthday and Daddy forgot. All morning Mommy kept wondering when Daddy would remember. It took about 4 hours before Daddy realized what day it was and by then it was too late. We were busy for the rest of the weekend and Mommy didn’t even get her special “tin foil numbers”. Daddy still has some making up to do…
There is nothing wrong with undoing the button on your pants….it is socially acceptable for a pregnant lady!
Best Moment Of The Week:
Getting to share Baby’s first pictures with family and friends over Thanksgiving was really great! I just keep looking at the picture over and over again! It’s nice to be able to see baby now!
