Baby Three: 15 Weeks

Today is 3/22/20 which means I’m 15 weeks!

Baby Lamotta is due 9/13/20!

Baby is the size of a yellow canary.

Baby Lamotta is a GIRL. According to the sneak peek test I did at 8 weeks, we are having another girl! My symptoms definitely felt girl to me. It’s a pretty accurate test but I’m still holding my breath for the ultrasound confirmation.

I’ve gained… I don’t want to know.

Midwife appointment this week? Yes! I skipped last week because of dehydration that I thought was a stomach bug at first but ended up just me feeling really terrible and no vomiting. I’m feeling anxious because I was having bad cramps during it and I just want to make sure baby is okay. My appointment is Tuesday afternoon.

Current mood: Anxious. And honestly, I’ve been feeling really disconnected lately.

Cravings: I love me some ranch lately but not exactly craving it.

Food Aversions: Mexican and meat – especially beef.

Currently rocking: maternity jeans and a Patriots shirt.

TMI: so much poop. And lots of heartburn. And weird dreams!

The best thing about pregnancy this week? It’s been a hard week. But one of the best things was Hattie hugging and kissing the baby in mommy’s tummy. She keeps pointing to my stomach and asking me to reassure her that a baby is there and then says she’s going to kiss baby or lay her head on baby. It’s adorable.

What’s different about baby #3 than with Jude and Hattie’s pregnancies? This was my first planned pregnancy. We tried for a while to get this sweet baby. So far, this pregnancy has been very similar to Hattie. Lots of nausea until about 12 weeks. I was wearing seabands religiously. My neck also broke out a lot in the first trimester.

I’m nervous about: I’m not overly worried but slightly nervous about catching COVID-19 being pregnant.

Other thoughts: Being pregnant and unable to drink booze while practicing social distancing because of this COVID-19 pandemic has been HARD. My mood has been all over the place. I miss people. I miss social interaction. And I’m so busy at work that my head feels like it will explode. I need a break. But, of course, we had to cancel our April vacation because of everything going on. I don’t know how I’m going to make it until July. And what if this is still going on in July? #stressed
