15 weeks | Baby #3

How far along: 15 weeks. [15 with Ezra15 with Isaac]

How big is baby: An orange at roughly 4 inches. My little baby is continuing to grow towards normal proportions, with baby's legs now outmeasuring the arms. And finally, all four limbs have functional joints. My baby is squirming and wiggling like crazy . . . I just can't feel most of it yet. 

Weight gain/loss: I'm holding steady at my pre-pregnancy weight. My midwife seemed a bit shocked that I hadn't gained at my appointment on Monday, so we'll see how this goes with paleo. I consulted with a blog friend, Sarah, who ate paleo and the gain did come, so I'm not too concerned yet. I'm definitely eating enough!

Stretch marks: Still none. 

Sleep: My neck and shoulders have been bothering me with all of the shooting and computer time lately. It's been difficult to get comfortable. 

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Not too much to report. I'm still noshing on the paleo diet and made a fantastic bean less chili last week, that I then also served over my eggs in the morning! I think a planned cheat meal, including some pizza or maybe a turkey sandwich from Baker's Square could be in my future this weekend. Last night Tony was a dear and got me a bean, rice, cheese and sour cream less carnitas burrito bowl and despite all evidence to the contrary, it was amazing! Seriously, so good with carnitas, tomato salsa, lettuce, guacamole and a good dose of lime.

Movement: When listening to the heartbeat on the doppler, I've been able to feel faint kicks while hearing them . . . so it's only a matter of time!

What I'm worrying about: Unfortunately, still essentially the same worry as last week, except last week it was the boys being sick and unable to go to my Mom's causing stress at work with unplanned PTO. This week, my Mom is sick and the boys can't go to her house, which is exhausting our work situations and the kindness of friends and family. 

What I'm loving: Being pregnant. Feeling blessed. And, that I can see the light at the end of busy season! YAY!

Symptoms: I'm definitely more emotional this week. I hate being overly emotional. Hate.

What I'm looking forward to: We set the date for the anatomy scan, November 26th! It's been so long since we saw baby#3! I can't wait to get a view at our little one again and have confirmation that all is progressing well. From there, I finally came up with how we'll reveal the sex and am really excited about it!

Best moment of the week: Yesterday, I stayed home with the boys unexpectedly and was able to take Isaac to preschool. While on the way home, he nonchalantly told me he saw a tractor. Knowing it was at the compost, I asked him if he wanted to see it again, he shrugged his shoulders and told me he already did. Knowing better, I whipped a turnaround [how does one spell u-y?] and for the next 7 minutes just watched as Isaac sat enthralled to see the tractor at work. It was just a great moment to spend a small chunk of time entertaining him with something he thought was "so cool!"
And on the way home from preschool, his day was made by watching a CAT at work! #littlemoments #boymama #whycantIbeaSAHMyet?
