Bumpdate: 15 Weeks

size of the baby: Navel Orange

total weight gain: 6.5 lbs. 

gender: Still waiting to find out... 

maternity clothes: It's dress down week at school, so I've been wearing jeans every day. Thankfully, I have several pairs of those that either still fit or can easily be worn with my belly band. All normal shirts to far...

I did sort through a huge bag of maternity clothes one of my friend's sent over & I have a ton of maxi dresses to wear as the weather gets warmer. Maxis were my favorite with Ella (actually maxis are always my favorite) so I have yet another reason to wish it would warm up & fast! 

movement: I definitely felt him/her move last Friday night! I was sitting on the bleachers at my basketball game & all of the sudden I could feel movement - like somersaults. I stayed really still & let it go on for about 3 minutes. I've felt the baby since, not every day, mostly when I'm very still later in the day. 

sleep: I've slept great 5 out of 7 nights this week. Ella slept in while she was sick, which meant I got to sleep in too. The other 2 nights, I just had the strangest dreams, causing me to toss & turn. I don't remember having crazy dreams with Ella, but it's been a constant in this pregnancy. 

missing: My flat stomach. I'm fully aware I'm growing a child & that makes me happier than you can imagine. But I worked really hard for the stomach that I had, and sometimes it's hard to face the fact that I have to take a huge step back in my fitness again. Looking on the bright side though, I came back stronger, faster, and healthier than ever after Ella - so hopefully the same will be true this time! 

craving: Nothing in particular... just hungry! 

symptoms: I. AM. STARVING. Like, all of the time starving. I keep telling myself that it's ok to eat, as long as I'm eating healthy foods. Still... the desire to go eat a 20 piece McNugget is there.

Ella is: on the mend. She was sick more than half of last week & this week has been a struggle for her. She's whiney & clingy - not her normal self at all. I'm hoping that once we're done with cheer season on Saturday & I can get her home earlier, things will get better. 

looking forward to: my parents coming this weekend & the end of cheer season... I love my girls, but I'm craving  a little more down time in our schedule. 

best moments: Winning at competition. Feeling the baby move. Eating... yes just eating in general.
