It’s hard to believe we’re already 15 weeks and almost into May! I feel like when we found out in mid-February that May seemed so far away, probably because I spent the first three months on the couch or with my head in a toilet. But, we are now finally on the brink of summer!! I can’t believe we’re just 5 weeks from being HALF-WAY!!!
Here’s my 15 week update…
The end of week 14 proved to be a challenge, both mentally and physically. My morning sickness hit again pretty hard, after about a week of feeling allllllmost back to normal. It hit again last night out of the blue, but I’ve just decided that it’s going to linger a bit longer than I thought and to just go with it! It will eventually stop, hopefully!
Other than that, I’m feeling pretty good! I’m getting more and more excited to find out the gender in just a few weeks!!! I’ve had mostly girl dreams, but I did have a random boy dream a few nights ago. It seems like everyone around me is having boys! I would be thrilled with either, and have the perfect boy name picked out, but girl names on the other hand are still TBD! As far as guesses go, I would say 80% of people we talk to are riding the pink train, so we’ll see if the majority is correct.
Our next appointment is at 18.5 weeks for some genetic testing, which I haven’t decided yet if I want to do or not. If it’s not mandatory and if insurance doesn’t cover it, I’m not positive what we’ll do. I’m assuming it’s required though. Then after that, our big anatomy scan is at 20 weeks! Can’t believe this appointment is on the calendar! Even though I’d be ok waiting to find out the gender until then, I’ll be spending memorial day weekend back home with family and really wanted to be able to get some fun shopping done with my mom! I only get so many weekends with her! So, we are going to go to another ultrasound tech in a week or two and find out the gender a little early. I CAN’T WAIT!!!!
Now that the bump is starting to become obvious, it’s about that time. This momma is in desperate need of some new clothes!
Maternity Clothes Shopping
I’ve had a hard time finding much of anything that I actually like because a lot of maternity wear just looks frumpy. I imagine this summer I’ll be living in maxi skirts and dresses, and comfy tanks. But for work, I’m going to need a staple pair of jeans, maybe some white skinnies, and a few casual tops to throw on. I’ve got a gift card for Target and Old Navy, so those are my starting points. Here are a few basics I’ve bookmarked online that I think could be good options for day-to-day wear, and last throughout several months of pregnancy. I’m thinking my money will be best spent on a minimal wardrobe consisting of a few items that are staple pieces I can get a lot of use out of, and items I could wear some after baby comes when things haven’t quite deflated. 😉
I’ll keep you updated on what I end up choosing! I can still make 75% of my current wardrobe work, but I know that clock is ticking!
I’ve also recently discovered Pink Blush Maternity. I’ve been dyyyyying over how cute some of their maternity dresses and tops are! I think PMB will be my go-to for picking out special dresses for baby showers and maternity photos. Everything on their site is so pretty and girly and FLATTERING!
Just for kicks, here are three of my absolute faves!
OBSESSED. Might need to purchase these asap.
No questions today, but if you have any advice it would be greatly appreciated!
