How far along? 15 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: Not sure but my regular pants feel like enemies at this point.
Maternity clothes: Listen, the maternity pants struggle is real. I don't know how anyone else gets dressed while pregnant without hating literally everything but I feel like it shouldn't be this difficult. Of course not every woman gets pregnant and nobody who does is pregnant all the time, but as evidenced by the billions of people who have been born on this planet, the need for maternity pants is a legit one. Why do they all not fit?! I did get one pair of pants that fits and one pair that kind of fits. I also got 2 pairs of yoga pants, which are comfy for at home but make me feel dumpy and bad about myself if I wear them too much because pajamas aren't clothes! I also got 2 maternity tops. All of those things were bought for me this week by my mom, who also fed me meatloaf. :)

Stretch marks: Nope.
Sleep: It's been OK. My problem is that when I wake up to use the bathroom I am stuck being awake for 3 or 4 hours after that and it doesn't matter if I get up at 6am or 4am. So I've been feeling really goofed up this week.
Best moment this week: Finding ONE pair of pants that actually fits me.
Miss anything? Not really.
Movement: I don't think so yet.
Food Cravings: Not so much a craving but I'm still eating a lot of fruit.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Sometimes cheese feels too heavy in my stomach but that's pretty much it. Wait, actually, I feel kind of sick if I see raw chicken. That's annoying because apparently my body thinks that if it doesn't make me feel sick then I'll eat that. Guess what body, I'm not going to eat raw chicken. So chill out. Thanks.
Gender: Don't know.
Labor signs: Nope.
Symptoms: A new one this week: heartburn! Also, nose bleeds and I'm pretty sure I've started leaking colostrum or something. So that's all cool.

Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Half and half. I feel fine except that getting dressed is now very difficult and I am very grouchy about how impossible it seems to be to get maternity pants that fit. My belly feels like it all of a sudden became huge this week. We noticed over the weekend that it sticks out farther than my boobs, even when I'm wearing a bra. Steve pointed out that every time I notice I'm bigger that it's the biggest I've ever been so it's understandable that it feels strange.
Looking forward to: Despite my complaints and despite the fact that shopping is exhausting, I am looking forward to a shopping trip that I have now planned with a friend. Hopefully, I actually get some pants out of it but at least it'll be fun to hang out! :)

Thanks for reading!

  1. I had suuuuch bad heartburn by the end of the pregnancy I was downing zantac!

    1. Yeah...I'm a little annoyed that the heartburn has started so early. I'm terrified of what it will be like at the end since it's already bad now.
