**********15 weeks**********

This week the baby is growing a lot faster! Already over 2 ounces and about 4 inches long, that is just amazing! That makes the baby about the size of an apple. And it would be so fun to get an ultrasound right now because he/she is moving like crazy right now. She's getting just cuter by the second and her arms and legs are now evening out in size. Eyes aren't open but is sensitive to light and her taste buds are forming. And it's also a good time to see the sex of the baby, that is if he/she lets you.


This week: 15 weeks!



Found some questions to add as the pregnancy will start to progress a bit more now that next week I will be 4 months and probably showing a bit more!

Vlog HERE


Total weight gain: 3-5 lbs

Maternity clothes? I've taken out my old maternity clothes and found that I am just going to have to sell some because they are too small! I also found my maternity shorts which I have to get more of because I hate to be hot! I'm still wearing regular shirts still, but can't wait to go full force with the maternity clothes! Don't tell hubs, but I think I might go shopping today!
Stretch marks? Well, if you saw my Belly Shot video on youtube, I have stretch marks, which I'm fine with, but no new ones, none have gotten darker or anything, so that is good.

Skin & Hair: Itchy & dry! Baby is soaking up all the good stuff! I'm still itchy like I had mentioned earlier, but I've been lotion-ing up so that I don't start itching again. My hair, I actually like being dry because I don't have to take a shower as often, haha, yes I know, gross. But being preggo, tired and hungry all the time, I really don't wanna take a shower anyways.
Sleep: NONE! It still takes me an hour or more to go to sleep. But the tea I have been drinking is really helping, so thats good. And hubs likes to make it for me, so I love him for that.

Best moment this week: Baby flutters! I posted that on my facebook! It is so exciting. I told hubs when it first happened, but i like keeping it to myself now, baby is telling me he's okay!
Miss anything? Hoping to go see another doctor soon to see if a VBAC will be possible, wish me luck!

Food cravings: I guess I've been craving pistacios this week... but have yet to have them! I gotta go buy some!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing satisfies me, I eat and then I'm hungry like 30 mintues to an hour later, so annoying.

Gender: ???

Labor signs:
 Nope

Symptoms:
Hunger!

Belly button in or out?
In and puffy!

Can you see your toes? Yes

Happy or moody most of the time:
Happy & Emotional
Looking forward to: More moving...

What made me cry this week: For some reason I was thinking about someone breaking into our house, scray I know. That made me tear up. I've also seen pictures of cute dogs, especially beagles, and that made me cry (missing our beagle).

Medical Stuff: Haven't been to the doctor yet, but I do have an appointment next Tuesday & then also going to see my diabetes specialist, which I have been doing really good with my readings!

Thoughts from the family: Nothing to report, just hubs still rubbing my belly!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
