I don't feel like there's a whole lot to update since my life these days revolves around watching the clock for when I can take my next dose of medicine and pacing myself in the eating department.
Here's a 14 week belly photo to distract you from my next sentence. I gained 10 pounds in 3 weeks. The good news is that I'm only back to my pre-pregnancy weight which I guess is doing OK considering I'm 15 weeks today.
My doctor finds the heartbeat really easily at my appointments (in the 150's) and what a sweet sound it is. I'm still sick every day, but haven't thrown up in quite a while. I graze all.day.long on whatever sounds good. I'm waiting for the "I want a SALAD!" craving to kick in like it did with Sam. Right now I'm stuck on a Cherry Coke & Fritos craving. It's awful. I know how bad pop is for me, yet it's one of the only things that calms my tummy besides sleep.
Speaking of sleep. I'm still going to bed super early - usually sound asleep by 8pm, if not earlier. I'm holding off on the Unisom until the middle of the night and breaking the dose into two in hopes that my catastrophic dreams will stay away and I can get more than 2 hours of sleep at a time. Right now I'm waking up almost every.single.hour. Not restful at all let me tell ya!
Sam and Julia ask when the baby is going to come out of my tummy about once a day. They know that when it's time to go to the beach again that it's going to be almost time. We scheduled our 20 week ultrasound for a time that they could both attend. I hope that doesn't turn out to be a mistake. I really want them involved and to get a glimpse of their sibling in action in a few weeks.
Are we going to find out what we're having? Don't know yet. IF we do find out, we won't be sharing the names on our list until after the baby is born. We have lots of girl names to choose from but our boy list is pathetically short. If you have any suggestions please share! We like classic, easy to spell names that will sound good with Sam and Julia. Bonus points to the person who comes up with a boy name (that we like) that has the "aw" sound in it!
I think that's about it for a baby update. Like I said, my world revolves around medication and food. Thankfully I have two busy kids to distract me!
