How Far Along: 15 Weeks!
Baby is the size of: an Apple - my favorite fruit!
Total weight gain: 3.6 pounds
Sleep: I was up for two hours last Monday night and it put me off for the rest of the week. I never felt like I could gain those two hours back no matter what. Other than that...sleeping fine, just getting up once a night for bathroom breaks.
Best Moment of the week: Taking Friday off to run errands and be at home with the hubby and puppy. Not pregnancy related, but a nice long weekend all together non-the-less.
Worst Moment of the week: Meh, I had a couple of weird things this week. One day on my commute home my legs wouldn't stop shaking on the subway. I felt fine otherwise, but I couldn't get my legs to stop. On Wednesday I randomly got really sick when I got home from work. I ate fine that day, but something set me off. I was pretty much never not tired, I had a hard time getting up in the mornings, and I pretty much felt awful all day yesterday at work: tired, stomach ache, headache, dizziness. I'm looking forward to discussing all this with my doctor today.
Have you told Family and Friends: Yes and Yes
Miss Anything: I was at a party on Saturday night and they had this amazing-looking hero sandwich out for dinner. I wanted a piece soooo badly, but the one thing I'm being diligent about is cold-cuts and hot dogs. I took two bites of Chris's sandwich and had the rest of the options for dinner (which were homemade and really tasty anyway!)
Food Cravings: Does food count? I just crave...food. Sweet tooth is back!
Anything make you queasy or sick: Nope!
Have you started to show? Yes
Gender: Don't know
Symptoms: Really tired. I'm feeling more tired in the second trimester than I did in the first trimester
Workouts: Walking, walking AND I ordered a prenatal work-out DVD, but haven't tried it yet. I will be attending a prenatal yoga class tonight! I'll let you know how it goes!
Mood: Generally good, but I had my first bout of "pregnancy hormones" on Sunday. I usually get emotional when I see live theater in general, and I always look forward to the Tony Awards every year. I watched it on Sunday and it was a fantastic show this year! I was already in tears by the opening number....but that's not really unusual for me. I carried on as usual, crying or tearing up through all the musical performances....but somewhere along the line, with about an hour left of the show, I just didn't stop...I pretty much cried through the entire last hour of the show and I'm not even really sure why. I just needed a cry.
Looking Forward to: Our 16 week appointment today! We're going to our doctor's new state of the art facility that just opened up yesterday. They've been in a temporary office since a flood in their office last October.
Maternity Clothes: I bought two pairs of maternity pants at Target on Saturday: a pair of jean capris and turquoise capris. They're a little big on me, but I figured it'll give me room to grow into them. I still need to find some black work pants.
Reading: The Art of Racing in the Rain, By Garth Stein. Not a pregnancy book, one I've wanted to read.
Milestones: Though the babies eyes are still fused shut, it should have begun to sense light this past week. If you shine a flashlight at my stomach, the baby may move away from the light (though I wouldn't be able to feel it just yet)
