This week has been hard, my husband traveled to Mexico to deal with some family things on Thursday. I’ve been in charge of the house, my son and our 2 bulldogs. I’m also pregnant, with constant nausea and headaches. You can just imagine my week. But I’m strong, I can do it. Well, about this week…
How far along? 15 weeks
Baby’s size: he/she is the size of a pear
This week’s video: Week 15
Total weight gained: -5 lbs
Sleep: I normally sleep facing up, but I’ve noticed that I can’t sleep like that anymore. My lowerback hurts a lot. So, from now on (and for a while) I’m sleeping on a side
Best moment of the week: seeing my friend. As a mom, our social life is very limited. Well, I took advantage because my husband was away and took my son with me. We had fun, it recharged me.
Movement: I have a little dancer in my belly. I feel it move, specially when I eat something. It can’t be seen by others yet
Food cravings: fruits. When I met with my friends on Saturday, I had not eaten all day, other than an apple. When it was time to order, I asked for a cheeseburger with French Fries and I devour it! I know this week my baby is building even more bone and muscle. My sudden craving for meat makes perfect sense
Food aversions: anything I ate the day before
Symptoms. Morning sickness: How in the world did it come back? I thought morning sickness was gone, for good! Headaches: they come and go, I’m getting headaches 3 days of the week, on an average. Thank goodness for my Essential Oils, which safe me over and over!
Gender: still don’t know. We might find out on December 30th. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
What I’m looking forward to: Christmas and my cousin, who is coming to visit us
What I miss: my family!! I feel so emotional and homesick right now!
Next appointment: December 30th
In this picture: I’m in our bathroom, right after my son finally fell asleep
