I’ve been holding out on you all! I’m pregnant! By the time that this is published and being read, I’ll be 15 weeks. It’s a little crazy to me that I’m even writing this post and sharing this because I honestly didn’t think it would happen. Conor and I are both so happy and excited about this journey and our little one to come.
Despite entering my 4th month being pregnant, I’m still in disbelief that I’m pregnant and we’ll have a little one with us not too long after Christmas. I look at my ultrasounds and I’m just still so shocked that there’s a little baby inside growing. I don’t know why I’m still in disbelief, especially this late in my pregnancy but that’s just how I feel. Last week we announced to the rest of our friends and family (typical social media post) and that made it a little more real to me. I’m so happy that our little one is already so loved.
How far along?
15 weeks and I just started my 4th month of pregnancy
January 8th, 2019
All about baby:
Size of baby
The size of an avocado, depending on the app of course
All about baby: Baby is about 4.5 inches and nearly 4 oz. Our little one loves loves loves to wiggle. Every single ultrasound has been so difficult because baby will not stop moving. The first heart rate reading we got was 166bpm. Our little one is growing on schedule and all of our tests are coming back good which is a relief.
Have you decided on a name? Yes because we might know the gender already since we got the sneakpeek test. I will not be revealing it until baby is born though. We are still working on middle names though.
All about momma:
Weight Gain: -27 lbs Yes you read that correctly.
How are you feeling? I have been so sick. As you can see I lost nearly 30lbs which is crazy considering you’re supposed to gain 20lbs by the end. I have been so severely sick that my doctor put me on zofran because literally, nothing else helped. I tried everything and purchased so many things to help me feel better. It’s gotten to the point that I’m emotionally exhausted because I’ve just been so so sick.
Best moment so far?: Telling our families and friends have been really wonderful, I also have really loved seeing the look on my husbands face when I bring home new ultrasounds
Are you having any cravings? Absolutely not, I have a ton of aversions though. The worst thing is that once I find something I like, the next day I don’t.
How are you sleeping? I wake up at least once a night because I drink so much water and I need to use the bathroom. I’ll wake up a second time if my husband steals the blankets. Throughout the day I’m incredibly tired, it’s so tough making it.
Maternity Favorites: I got one pair of leggings that I’m obsessed with from Motherhood Maternity. I was desperate so I bought them but I’m trying to find a more eco friendly and sustainable maternity line.
What are you excited about? The glow of the second trimester! Whenever that is!
