How far along? 15 weeks, 1 day
Maternity clothes? Just pants
Sleep? Its gotten a bit better. The last week Ive only been getting up once to go to the bathroom. And instead of waking up at 6:30, Ive been waking up with Brian at 6. I think my energy is coming back!
Best moment this week? I've had several:
1. Feeling my bump expand. My tummy is getting really hard! And its growing up higher! Its so very weird! Im used to having a jiggly flabby tummy. Now when I poke it, its firm!
2. Going maternity clothes shopping with my mom. I just got a couple of things for fall. We went to Destination Maternity for their clearance sale and I loved it! The store is awesome! And everything was under $15!
3. My first student asked me if I was pregnant today. Bless their hearts, they didn't want to be rude and ask! Ive heard a couple of comments whispered, but none had asked me. I think the word will be out soon!
Food cravings: None really.
Gender: Team Green!
Belly button in or out? In
Movement? I don't think so... the other night I laid on the couch and REALLY tried to focus and thought I felt something like a fish swimming down low, but I think its probably psychological... I can't wait for real movement!
What I miss? Nothing : )
What I'm looking forward to: Our appointment next Tuesday. I'm praying we hear a nice, steady heartbeat again! I'm praying that my increasing waistline is a good indicator that all is well inside. Not that I worry about those types of things : )
Milestones: Obviously we are more pregnant than we've ever been! I feel like I'm starting to get to the "comfortable" part of pregnancy. I'm really anxious to hear our little one next week at 16 weeks and to see them on an ultrasound again and gain some reassurance that they are healthy!
This week I've been really trying to just meditate in the fact that God loves our child more than we ever could! He is preparing them for His perfect will, however that may look. I'm still worried and absolutely terrified of all the endless possibilities of what could happen with our child, but I assume that's just the beginning with mommyhood!
If you happen to think of us, a prayer for our baby and my anxious mind would surely be appreciated. I pray that our next appointment will help my heart be a little more at peace.
