(I look a lot bigger this week because I tried a maternity shirt! It's way too big still, but I liked the color.)
So 15 weeks today, and Big Baby is the size of an orange. He/she is about 4” long and weighs 2.5 oz. We’re 3/8 of the way there! Only 25 weeks to go. It’s all going by pretty fast.
Summer’s been here in full swing this year. I’m so grateful that it hasn’t been too hot, considering that we don’t have air conditioning. It’s been mostly in the mid 80’s this past week or so, and I think it’s supposed to go back down to the 70’s next week. We had a busy weekend last weekend. We helped our friends move on Saturday morning. I didn’t lift any heavy things, just helped pack boxes in the kitchen. Then our friends Jake and Cassie came down and we walked over to Summerfest, Stayton’s annual summer street fair. It was fun, and everyone from Stayton was there practically. Sunday evening we went to a birthday party and a lot of the guys were playing volley ball. I was tempted to play, but decided not to in case I played too hard or something.
My pants are starting to get tight. I’ve been wearing the Bella Band so I don’t have to button them, but it’s getting uncomfortable too. The problem is that I don’t fit into maternity pants yet, at least not the ones I have. I’m going to have to do some shopping this weekend. My friend Sara loaned me a bunch of clothes, so that’s nice!
Changes this week: I’m feeling much, much better as far as nausea goes. I can’t shake this tiredness though. I have lots of energy in the mornings, but then after I work all day I’m exhausted and just want to lay on the couch. I’ve also been having the worst time swallowing my vitamins. I force myself to do it, but sometimes I gag. It’s no fun.
Cravings this week: In-n-out, but unfortunately it’s about 6 hours away. I haven’t really been wanting to eat sweet things, which is a good thing. I’ve been eating lots of fruits, veggies and protein. It’s funny, because I’ll be super hungry for dinner, then I won’t be able to eat that much and I’ll be stuffed full. Then an hour or two later, I’m starving again. I guess my stomach is getting squished already.
