Pregnancy Things To Note

There are a few things that have recently occurred to me about being pregnant that I don’t want to forget. I would warn you and say that these are mostly random, but if you know me well enough that should go without saying.

When wearing normal person panty hose the top portion of the panty hose does not stay on the bump. Instead, it does this annoying thing where it rolls down the bump in a super tight roll that takes approximately five minutes to undue when you are trying to fix. This occurs when you sit down or move in any way. Not that I EVER enjoyed panty hose to begin with but I thought it would be cute to wear this maternity dress with tights and boots. Super cute fall thing to wear. I’m hoping that I can get my hands on maternity panty hose for the next time I wear this outfit.

My nose is constantly draining and runny. No, I do not have a cold. No, I do not have allergies. I am simply pregnant with this extra mucus membrane thing going on. It is somewhat embarrassing when I’m in the middle of a meeting at work and then all of a sudden the drainage just starts going crazy and I’m trying to not act like a kid and wipe it on my sleeve.

On a more positive note, it is so nice to pull the pregnancy card and have your husband take your boots and socks off for you when you are tired. It is also nice to have back rubs a LOT when you are pregnant. And it is really great to have a husband that makes it appoint to go get your prenatal vitamin and chocolate milk or at the very least puts the vitamins in a super obvious place so you don’t forget to take it. Come to think of it, I’m just a lucky girl to have such an amazing husband that takes care of me while pregnant. #luckyme

Keeping on the positive note, I absolutely love talking with Abbey about Baby Squishy. She is going to be a great big sister! She will forget that Squishy exists but then all of a sudden she will remember when she is lying on me and there is this bump in her way and she will find my belly button and say, “tickle tickle Squisy” (the “h” is silent). Or she will share binky and quite literally try to shove that in my belly button too!

There is so much to look forward to when you are pregnant. The next doctor appointment when you get to hear the heartbeat. The next ultrasound when you get to see the baby to count fingers and toes and make sure all is a-ok. Finding out the sex of the baby and sharing that moment with your family and friends. All the fun things to buy new baby because even if it is another girl, this baby would need things of its own too!

Even though I feel like a grumpy, bitchy, sleepy, blah-blah, yuckity blob (deep breath) I still love, love, love being pregnant and all the tickles and movements and connections with the baby during pregnancy.

15 Weeks – Baby Squishy Pregnancy

15 Weeks{How far along?} 15 Weeks, 4 days

{Total weight gain} Wowzer, I forgot how tough these questions were, this one is especially tough for me. I was about 80% towards my 50 pound weight-loss goal when I found out I was pregnant. Since adding fruits, dairy, pregnancy cravings and well just being pregnant, I have gained 10 pounds since the end of July. I was having the hardest time with this gain but have FINALLY gotten over it and am completely enjoying my pregnancy.

{How big is baby?} Baby Squishy is about 3-4 ounces right now. Amazing how I’ve pooched out and gained weight for our little baby that is weighing in the same size as a naval orange.

{Maternity clothes?} OH how I missed maternity pants!! All new maternity clothes are now taking over my closet, I’ll be hitting up the consignment shops soon for more black pants and jeans.

{Sleep?} Getting good sleep but having some whacked out dreams – seriously crazy ass dreams!

{Best moment this week?} Anytime Abbey-girl says hi to Squishy or gives my belly a kiss. She unfortunately isn’t too subtle and has been known to pull my shirt up or down to get to the bump.

{Movement?} I started to really feel the tickles this past week. If you see me itching my belly, no worries it is just me thinking there is a bug crawling under my shirt, um, I mean the baby is moving.

{Food cravings?} Not really…..

{Labor signs?} NO

{Heart Burn} NO

{Belly button in or out?} IN

{What I miss} n/a

{What I’m looking forward to} Another gender reveal party!

{Milestone} We put the house up on the market today – this was a LOT of hardwork. Check out the photos and listing!
