How Far Along: 15 weeks (pic: 15w5d – I just keep getting more and more orange in these pictures.)
Isla Comparison: Here is me at 15 weeks with Isla.
Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: Pear
Total Weight Gain: As of my cardiologist appointment last week, I think I’m only down a pound or two from pre-pregnancy weight.
Movement: Little kicks and rolls here and there, usually at night as I’m going to sleep.
Sleep: More, please. The time change has been brutal.
What I miss: Caffeine
Cravings: No real cravings this week.
Symptoms: I still have a cold (going on 4 weeks), so it kind of throws everything off. I’m having a lot of lower back pain, though, and digestive issues that definitely harken back to my pregnancy with Isla. Lots of stretching and pulling as my belly starts to grow.
Maternity Clothes: Pants, definitely. Shirts, I can still mostly wear non-maternity shirts.
Emotions: Between work and being sick and pregnant, I’m feeling pretty stressed out and worn down. The time change and everything being dark when we get off work isn’t helping.
PgAL Thoughts: I honestly haven’t had much time to think about it this week.
Best Moment This Week: Going trick-or-treating with Isla. She was the cutest stinking Elsa of all time.
