Pregnancy Updates

How far along: 15 weeks

Gender: unknown (we find out November 2nd!)

Name: We have some ideas, but not ready to reveal yet!

Total weight gain: zero. actually, -10. I got the stomach flu about a month ago, and haven't had much appetite since!

Maternity clothes: Not quite yet. About ready to work that rubber band-fly trick, though!

Stretch marks: Psh. I've had stretch marks since I was 15. All real women have them.

Sleep: Not great. I'm trying to go to bed earlier to sneak in some extra, but between my hips acting up (a pre-existing issue exasperated by expanding joints) a restless pup, a full bladder, and a husband with an early wake up time, I'm just in and out quite a bit. Feeling spurts of energy here and there, but mostly pretty tired.

Miss Anything: Sushi. Sushi, sushi, sushi. And lunch meat. I could murder a Jersey Mike's #2... with such a low appetite, it's irritating to not be able to eat the few things I DO crave! I've given in a couple of times with both- getting tempura sushi and having a mini sub, but I've been pretty good for the most part.

Cravings: sushi, sub sandwiches, strawberries. That's really about it.

Symptoms: rushing to the restroom constantly, aching back, hips, and pelvis, fatigue. That's about it.

Belly Button in or out: In

Mood: kind of gloomy, but trying to remember it's just hormones. There are really great things happening in our lives right now! I have no reason to be sad!

Best Moment this week: Ryan's graduation and dinner with our families. So proud of him, and Vesper got to go too!

Looking forward to: Probably some more sushi now that I've been talking about it :)

Exercise: none until my next appointment. I'll spare you the details, but I was told to refrain for a while.
