Sometimes it just hits us: "We're going to be parents."
Who's idea was this anyway!?!?!!!
Don't answer that.
In other news here's my 15 week self.
OH MY WORD next week bebe will be the size of a peach!!
Just yesterday it was the size of a green olive.
This is all going by way. too. fast.
I wish I had the gestation period of an elephant. 22 months would be awesome.
Or a giraffe, where I could press the pause button, and then un-pause weeks later.
Feeling better. Still enjoying fruits and vegetables most. They make me feel good. Whenever I indulge my bad cravings (deep fried...whatever) I feel like I'm at week 6 again. So that's helpful to keep me motivated to continue eating healthy. I don't think I've gained any weight. I feel less bloated. If I have gained weight it's only a couple pounds. I can still fit into my regular jeans (low rise) but they aren't comfortable so I've put them in storage. I'm enjoying still being "under cover" pregnant right now. Wearing loose tops and jean jackets and scarves and hiding under the radar.
I'm thankful to be feeling so close to normal these days. God has been merciful to me.
I'm going to call this "showing" even though I've had this same apple waistline for the past 3 years and bebe is the size of an olive. I already know I'm not going to have a cute petite belleh. In 7 months I'll have to make a 3-point turn around every corner.
We didn't get the hear the heartbeat today because the doppler system wasn't hooked up or something. The OB/GYN said it wasn't necessary. But it will give us something to look forward to at our next visit.
We probably won't be going back to this OB for our next ultrasound, the experience wasn't what we wanted, she kept talking to Brian about shark attacks and beached sharks in Rhode Island while waving the wand around like a lightsaber fighting with my cervix. Oww.
She just seemed really rushed and sloppy. Half the time the computer monitor was in the way and she kept saying she'd move it after checking around. That frustrated me, to be laying on a table at this first-in-a-lifetime opportunity and not being able to see anything while she gabbed on about sharks with Brian.
But I am SO thankful that bebe is where he/she is supposed to be (in the uterus) and looking healthy, good size, and with a heartbeat of 174!
