I have no idea if I will do pregnancy updates this time around. I feel like it's a little cheesy and I don't know if I can remember to do it every week but I want this boy to know I was just as excited about him as I was the first time around. I think my kids will enjoy reading these one day. And it will help me remember.
I'm 15 weeks!
(Actually I'm almost 16 but still..........)
How Far Along: 15 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby Stamps is the size of an apple
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Yeah - I'm going to keep this to myself this time around. I know I'm going to gain weight but I also feel like this is the last time of my life that I will feel free to eat what I want and not feel guilty so I'm enjoying it. I have the rest of my life to work on losing it. :-)
Maternity Clothes: I'm wearing my normal clothes but I have a feeling I'm going to live in tunics and leggings this pregnancy!
Gender: A BOY! We are just thrilled about this boy!
Movement: I have begun feeling a few flutters. The girls are DYING to feel him so I can't wait until they can. They check my belly every night to see if it's getting bigger. And it is not letting them down.
Sleep: I'm so tired - that I sleep pretty good!
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach.
Cravings: SALTY SALTY SALTY. Sweet things and desserts sound terrible. I want pickles and chips and salty meats and salads.
Symptons: I'm starting to feel a lot better. I'm just EXHAUSTED. All I want to do is sleep and lay down. :-) I got to bed at 8:30 most nights which is so opposite of my night owl ways.
Best Moment this week: Hearing his heartbeat today! It was 155!
Also - every night the girls come up to my belly and say "Good night baby brother". It melts my heart every time.
Thank you for all the name suggestions. I'm not really sure we will name him an H name. If it was a girl - we would have to do HBS. But with a boy - we may go a different way. We have a name we like but we just aren't 100% sure yet. If/when we ever settle for SURE on a name, I will probably share it! I'll be ready to know for sure and start calling him by name.
I finally got to see my regular doctor today. She has been my doctor forever and is around my age so I consider her almost a friend. (Which honestly everyone I know who goes to her thinks she is their best friend too). I couldn't get in to her for my last appointment so she texted me last week and said "Why am I finding out on Instagram that you are having a boy". I cracked up!
I still can't believe I'm having a baby!
I love a good comparison. Apparently third baby equals three times the size. I've gotten a little older and a little more tired each time. ha! This is me at 15 weeks each pregnancy.
