I've officially made it to 15 weeks. This is starting to feel completely real and exciting! I'm going to make a valiant effort to start writing a weekly update- I want to remember these little details 10 years from now! So, here goes nothing:
Week 15: (Ok, so I'm 15w 1d...)
Weight Gained: 9 lbs
Cravings: Sizzling Rice Soup, Avocado & Cucumber Rolls, Gatorade
Food Aversions: Most meat- I just can't do it. Thank God for Greek yogurt, or I would get no protein!
Symptoms: Near-constant nausea, daily headaches, occasional BH contractions. Also, pregnancy-related constipation is no joke. That is all I'm going to say about that.
How I'm Feeling: Tired! I'm actually grateful to my MFM for cutting back my hours- he seemed to know that I needed it before I did.
Exciting Stuff: First Real Kick!
Today, after waking up from a 12 hour napping marathon, I rolled over and felt a very distinct kick on the left side of my belly. I held my breath for a second, and two more little kicks followed. Wow. I've felt tiny little taps or flutters for a few weeks, but nothing that made me stop and pay attention. These were honest-to-goodness baby feet going crazy. I can't wait until their movement is more constant and predictable, because I keep waiting to feel them again!
Weekly Worries: Still concerned about my cervical length. Hopefully we'll re-check on Thursday at my OB appt. Maybe the reduced work hours have helped!
