BumpDate: 15 Weeks

A BIG Thank You to several of you that have reached out asking if everything is ok with the baby since I've been off the blog radar for the past few weeks.  I appreciate everyone's concern, but yes we are all doing great, big sister and Hubs included.  

What I'm craving?: Still a decent amount of red meat and salty things, especially potato chips, all things bad for me basically.  I eat a lot of peanuts and grapes right now too.

Funny/Memorable Story Of The Week:  Mia's new thing is to say she is "freaking out."  I have NO idea where she got this from, but it makes me laugh so hard.  I about peed my pants in Target yesterday when she said it again.  It's completely used out of context and it makes no sense when she says it, but it's still hilarious, well to me anyway.

Weight Gain: Up 2 lbs.

Work Out Regimen: Walking, light weights.  I will be starting yoga back up.  My back and feet are already starting to hurt me and I know that will help.  I have a 5K coming up in November.

What's Different?:  I'm so much more emotional lately and less aggravated like I was a few weeks ago.  I cried at Disney on Ice and the Rams game the past two weeks.  I see the excitement in Mia's eyes at these live events and it makes my heart all gushy.

Boy or Girl:  Still feeling the boy instinct on this one.  We officially find out in four weeks.

Sleep:  AWESOME right now.  I think the cooler temps help.  I'm sleeping like a rock.

Labor Signs: Nada.

Movement: Much more frequently and I LOVE IT!

What I Miss:  Would still like to have a bit more energy, but I think I just need to get used to this.

What I'm Looking Forward To: All the fall activities we have coming up and the craft/girls night at my sister's this weekend!  Oh aaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnddddddddd, we are [ this ] close on getting started on the kitchen reno.

How Baby's Growing: This week the baby is the size of an apple. Though some days when I look at my belly, I beg to differ. He/she can move all of its limbs and joints and can sense light.  We had our monthly doctor's visit this week and everything is going perfectly!  Our doctor ended up doing an unexpected scan because the baby wouldn't sit still long enough to read the heartbeat.  Made me nervous for a few minutes, but once I saw the baby doing back flips in my belly I was relieved.  That never happened with Mia, so I wasn't ready for it.

The Big Sister:  My baby is doing amazing!  We've been talking about her Halloween costume for quite a few weeks and I've been hesitant to buy it because of fear she will change her mind.  She's been consistent the past few weeks, so last night we went out to buy it.  She's so excited, we went straight home and she tried it on for her Daddy

Happy Friday!  Have a great weekend!

Yay! Sorry to say but Meems may have gotten that Freaking out thing from her little cousin. She says it out of context too. :)

Cute little belly! I'm glad things are going well. Can't ask for more!

Can't wait to see what Mia is for Halloween. So exciting!
