I did these every couple of weeks with B3 so I figured it was time to start them up with B3-junior!
How far along: 15 weeks 5 days
How big is baby: 4-1/2 inches-ish, avocado sized
What have you been up to: Work is picking back up to the perfect amount of work/mommying and I am starting to be less grumpy/feel better during the daytime which I'm sure Ben is grateful for. lol It is so nice to like life again.
Exercise/Activity Level: Not very good these days. I did lots of walking during the first trimester and am starting to have better day times, so I went back to CrossFit a little bit ago! But only once because my gym won't let me do a punch card this time (they don't do them anymore) and I don't want to do the only option of unlimited when how I am feeling is unpredictable. Soooo I am going to try another CrossFit gym out that does punch cards and has daycare.
Maternity clothes: Yes, from like day ONE I went stretchy pants, no holding out this time.
Stretch marks: No, I didn't get any with Bentz but I have a feeling I'll be bigger this time. But then again, my mom never got any!
Belly Button: In
Sleep: One word: Unisom
Best Moment of the Week: Having my mom in town for a week! The best!!! I'm sure she enjoyed her family/living/kitchen-room suite. :D Also having my family up for pizza at the pool.
Worst Moment of the Week: The whole moving stress. And taking iron pills. My blood work showed I am pretty anemic and the iron pill makes me crazy nauseated on top of already being nauseated. That is why you will always find bowls in our bed. :D
Food cravings: Fruit and sweets.
Food aversions: Meat, smelly foods, etc. I have loved LOVED those popping Boba you get at ice cream self serves and used to get more of them than ice cream, I swear, so I ordered me a bunch of containers of them. They arrived a couple of days later and I can hardly look at them... it's the craziest thing. I also cannot stand the smell of Tic-Tacs, which I used to always keep at my desk for B3. Pregnancy is so crazy!
Symptoms: Nausea, rib pain on the right side, bad skin, feeling large which shows I have clearly forgotten
Movement: I don't know, possibly. I try to notice it at night while laying in bed but my insides are kind of all over the place that I can't really distinguish what is what yet. But I'm hoping soon.
Gender: TBD next month
What I’m looking forward to: Cheering my family on at Mt. Charleston next month, finding out the gender, finding a home to buy so I don't stress about sharing walls (with child-less people), getting into a fitness routine, feeling better.
What I’m nervous about/praying for: I stressed about the anatomy scan, and everything.
What I miss: All sushi,..I can't stand meat smell, but fishiness doesn't bother me at all. RUNNING, I'm doing it vicariously through Ben who has been running a lot and rocking it. He did 14 miles yesterday!
Next appointment: Wednesday, 16 weeks
