15 Weeks

How far along:  15 Weeks

Baby is the size of a: I have to check the app and come back to this question lol.  I, however, am the size of a small whale.  No I’m not.  My uterus just feels like it.

A pear.  Baby is the size of a pear.

Due date: Sept 3rd, 2016

Total weight gain: No clue.  Probably still in like the 5lb range.  I have a little bit of a belly and my chest is huge – to the point that I need a few new bras because I’m really really uncomfortable in some of the old, not as supportive ones that I used to be able to throw on for yoga.

Sleep:  Great.  I still need to get up to go to the bathroom early in the morning, but good.

Best moment this week:  Austin said I had a spark.  I think my energy has all but returned.  I taught a Step and then a Zumba class on Saturday back to back, and cleaned without the desperate need for a nap.

Food cravings: Nothing really.  I ate a salad today that was bomb, and I had to trick myself into eating it by saying “quick, make this salad before you change your mind!”.

Food aversions:  Just stinky cooking meat.  That makes me ill.

Symptoms:  None really.  I am feeling very fat, but no illness.

Looking forward to:  Getting done with the glucose test.  Because of a very poor family history with diabetes, both Type I and Type II, I have to be tested twice instead of the one standard test.  The test isn’t particularly fun or tasty, but whatever it takes to keep the baby healthy, right?

  1. I had the same aversion to the smell of meat cooking, Frying raw hamburger meat was just the worst.
    Good luck with the glucose test!

  2. People are idiots. The first time I received a pregnant comment wasn’t until I was 24 weeks along or so so it was really obvious. At 15 weeks most people just look thicker so no one can know for sure. I cannot believe those people said something to you! I hope you gave a little ‘tude in your response. What did you say? A little tip the dr gave me for the glucose test: put the drink in the fridge first so it’s not at room temperature, makes it more bearable. Still gross though! My dr gave me mine to drink at home, not sure if yours will.

    1. I have mine to drink at home!

      I didn’t respond and just walked off. I have a huge problem with people just assuming because they’re curious that they’re entitled to ask you rude questions about your body. Especially men! Like bro, would you normally ask a woman about why she’s looking a little bustier? No? Then why start now?
