It’s pregnancy update time! I thought it would be fun to post a weekly update (with a coordinating video) sharing what’s happening in my pregnancy journey with you. I plan on including general stats such as how I’m feeling, any symptoms I’m experiencing, food cravings and aversions, weight gain, bump shots, etc., as well as what’s going on in my life that’s pregnancy-related and any baby things we’ve purchased or received as gifts.
I started taking weekly bump shots at 8 weeks, but then we were traveling a whole bunch and I let the ball drop between weeks 11 and 14. Oops! Luckily, not a whole lot happened in that time, but now things are starting to pop out a bit. I’ll include weekly bump shots with side by side comparisons from now on in my updates.
Here’s the current status:
❊ How Far Along – 15 weeks
❊ Baby Size Comparison – Navel orange (4.5″ and 2-3 ounces)
❊ Symptoms – A little bloating & some fatigue over the weekend, but both were most likely due to travel. Feeling pretty peppy otherwise! And very thirsty all of the time!
❊ Physical Changes – Bump more prominent. Boobs still growing. Oh boy!
❊ Weight Gain – 1 pound (6 total)
❊ Mood – Happy as a clam, but definitely more prone to welling up and even crying for both happy and sad reasons. Hormones are fun!
❊ Sleep – 8+ hours a night with 1-2 interruptions to pee. Sleeping like a rock and enjoying it while I can!
❊ Food Cravings – Fruit and lots of it! Specifically, papaya, pineapple, mango, & watermelon. Yum!
❊ Food Aversions – Fish, but only on its own. Apparently I still like it mixed into other dishes.
❊ Missing – Hot dogs, but only briefly while I was in New York. Haven’t thought about them since.
❊ Looking Forward To – Starting to dream and scheme up the nursery. Lots of pinning to do!
I talk more about my week in this video if you’re interested:
Please let me know if there are any other stats you’d like me to add to the list. I’m happy to share as much as I can! Don’t forget that it’s #BumpDay. Share your past or present bump on social media using the hashtag #BumpDay if you’d like to participate!
