So I’ve fallen behind a bit with my bumpdates. I blame it on the being lazy and pregnant. so I will put up the pictures from the past few weeks. Overall the morning sickness has been getting better, still there but getting better. I still really can’t stand the smell of coffee and don’t want to eat fish. Being pregnant again after losing a child is difficult. On one hand you want to enjoy every moment of your pregnancy and on the other ( at least with my experience) you know there is no ‘safe’ time in pregnancy. I have an overwhelming sense of anxiety all the time and I feel like I am cheating the nuggets from my blissful ignorance of everything that can go wrong. To be perfectly honest I have been seeing a therapist about the anxiety, and she is fantastic.. Many of the things that have been causing me grief especially my husbands sister. ( Seriously who wouldn’t go to their own nephews funeral)? It helps so much to be able to hear from someone who has no bias in any of the situations that have happened over the past few months.
Well as you can see the belly has grown quite a bit over the past few weeks. The waddle has already started and I see a chiropractor regularly. Here is the 15 week one with the question and answers that follow.
How far along: 15 weeks
Gender: I still feel like it is a boy/ girl but we find out in 3 weeks and I just can’t wait.
Weight gain: Surprisingly only 8 lbs even though it looks like I have gained much much more.
Maternity clothes: Pulled out my old maternity clothes last week. I’m going to try to hold off getting some more until these ones no longer fit me.
Stretch marks: \no new ones yet, but my tummy is getting so big so fast its just a matter of time.
Belly button in or out: In
Sleep: Sleep… who needs sleep.. ( me please) I flip flop all night long and once I’m awake it takes forever to fall back asleep.
Best moment this week: There were a few. Getting to hear their heartbeats this week. Twin A was 160 bpm and twin B was 155 bpm. The other was When my chiropractor got excited about some movement in my hips ( for the past 5 weeks there hasn’t been any)
Worst moment this week: Having to deal with hubbys family. His sister was in town and doesn’t think she did anything wrong by not going to Mackenzie’s funeral. The stress level and anxiety was nuts. Also blood sugars are becoming questionable so a lot of anxiety around that.
Miss anything: Sushi, deli meat, coffee and energy drinks.I’m excited I got the go ahead to use the hot tub though!
Movement: Nothing yet. I can’t wait till I get some movement then maybe some anxiety will go away.
Cravings: Salty, Caesar salad, pineapple,
Queasy or sick: Morning sickness is starting to get better, still not gone completely.
Looking forward to: Out anatomy scan! I can’t wait to start picking names!
