fifteen weeks.



how far along? 15 weeks.
maternity clothes? i've long since gotten out the bella band and bought some new white maternity skinny jeans from gap. the last week {while on vacation} i went from being able to button my pants in the morning for sure to permanatley disabling the buttons + zippers on my pants. i feel like that's super early but my doctor said since this is my third baby, nothing counts. {praise the Lord.}
stretch marks?
unfortunately i think my thighs are going to get the brunt of it this tiem.
sleep? ummm... no naps really anymore, which is nice, but i've been waking up 1-2 times to empty my bladder. no fun. my doc let me in on a little secret when i was early pregnant and study with the constant nausea feeling... benedryl is awesome at fighting nausea! so for weeks i've been taking one every night and been sleeping great. {also due to the absolutely LOWEST energy ever....} but the last few days i haven't been taking them and still sleeping great and not waking up nauseous. {and THAT is the important part!}
best moment this week? on monday evening, while on vacation, we received a call from my doctor letting us know that we're having another boy!!!! bring on the blue + gray + teal + navy! {apparently technology has really advanced between my last preganancy and this one - and we took a simple blood test for chromosome disorders and they also tell you the gender. thankfully everything was wonderful AND we found out the sex! woot!} {last week, actually} hearing the heartbeat and scheduling my next sono!!!!!! {the big one!}
movement? okay, so this will totally sound crazy {although my doc says really anything goes this time around} but i do FEEL like i have these little flutters on the side of my tummy. not anything you can feel when you put your hand on it, but i know that it's my little man wiggling his feet around. feeling them move is my absolute FAVORITE part of being pregnant.
food cravings? honestly nothing sounds good yet. i eat pretty much out of necessity. when we were on vacay i loaded down on breakfast {because i can always eat breakfast} but in the evenings it was hard picking stuff. the food was wonderful, no doubt, but nothing really "sounds" good.... praying that changes soooooon.
gender predictions? duh.... it's a BOY!! {we felt like it was a boy all along for whatever reason... and we were RIGHT!!}
what i miss: let's get real. wine. that is all.
what i'm looking forward to: planning the nursery. picking out boy stuff. agreeing on a name {which might prove to be a long process!} and settling in.
how are you feeling? fine. getting better every day, which is awesome.
comparisons to last pregnancy? i feel like my energy level is lower. always. but like i said above, it's getting better so i can't complain too much. i am nauseated for sure but maybe not as nauseous as i was with c.... i can't remember that far back though. i've slept since then i guess.
milestones? i'm through with the first trimester. hooray!!well, i'm not sure this is a milestone, but i wanted to write it down. when i went to the doc last week, my blood pressure was really low. 90/30. normally it's around 110 or 120/60. i just got the phone call though, that all of my blood work was normal, so i'm a little relieved, not that there was too much to worry about there.
