15.5 Weeks - Baby #2

I did these every couple of weeks with B3 so I figured it was time to start them up with B3-junior!

My age: 32

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


  1. Love the updates! I never got stretch marks and I read it's mostly due to genetics. So if your mom didn't, you should be good :)

  2. You look so cute! I love all of the pictures!!

  3. I'm interested to see how you feel a second pregnancy compares to the first. Our little one is 11 months and I'm hoping to work on a second next year. I hope you are able to settle into a fitness routine you like soon.
