How Far Along? 15 weeks, 3 days.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Still negative 10 pounds! For reals. I'm not complaining, at all ... I ate like crap for a couple of weeks so was expecting it to catch up with me, but I can tell that I've lost weight, especially in my face. Although I don't FEEL like it anywhere else. Hoping that since we're getting ready to jump into the fourth month, that things will start to catch up.
Maternity Clothes? I got super lucky and inherited about four bins of maternity clothes from a friend. So as far as pants go, they are pretty much the only thing I'm wearing these days. Because let's be honest ... they are freaking comfortable.
Stretch Marks? Nope. Only the ones that were there before!
Sleep: Sleep is just plain difficult. Sometimes I sleep through the night completely, other times I'm up at all hours because my hips hurt. It's frustrating, but it is what it is. Thank god for coffee.
Best Moment of the Week? We were gifted an at home doppler from an old work friend early in the pregnancy. It had been about three weeks since we tried to find the heartbeat on our own [which was always unsuccessful] but the other night we thought we would try again. We found it instantly! It was a magical experience!
Have You Told Family & Friends? YES! I couldn't wait any longer to spill the beans!
Miss Anything? Still wine. I fear that this will always be my answer every single week.
Movement: One moment where I thought it might have been the baby. Or I was just hungry. I don't know.
Food Cravings: None this week!
Anything Making You Queasy or Sick? No, I think I am definitely past the point of being queasy. Which is great.
Have You Started to Show Yet? Um, I think so. But mostly it's my fat being pushed out farther. ha!
Gender Prediction: Still guessing a boy! But hoping for a girl :)
Labor Signs: No.
Belly Button In or Out: In
Wedding Rings On or Off: On.
Happy or Moody Most of the Time? MOODY! Sorry, husband. I can't help it.
Looking Forward To: Feeling movement!
I know there are like, two people that read this blog, and I'm not sure if anyone really cares about these updates, but they are a good reminder for me to look back at to see how I was feeling throughout all of this!
The hip/pelvic pain is still pretty strong, but I'm dealing with it and just accepting it. Although it does make me move a little slower than normal. I FINALLY got everything worked out with the insurance company and will be seeing my new midwife on Thursday morning. I'm looking forward to another official check up and to get some official answers about my pelvic pain. But with hearing the heart beat this past week, it's so reassuring that everything is ok. The heart beat has been in the mid-150's so very nice and strong.
Photos starting next week!
