Sweatshirts and Updates

Before I say
anything else, I want to say thank you to everyone for your sweet comments last
week. They really made me feel better. I know I’ll get out this slump and start
feeling like the old Marissa soon!

That being said, in
true Marissa fashion I’ve been online window shopping! =)

One of the trends
that I am SO HAPPY about right now is sweatshirts! They aren’t your old fashioned;
only wear them at the gym or when you’re PMS’ing, grungy options anymore. These
new sweatshirts are full of style and fun flair! Plus they can be very
forgiving on a baby bump! Here are 4 of my current faves, 2 are more so regular
sweaters but I wanted to include them, so I did!


Here’s my current pregnancy update:

  • How
    far along: 
    15 weeks

  • How
    big is baby: 
    About the size of a navel orange, weighing in at 2.5

  • Weight
    Haven’t stepped on a scale since last appointment so I don’t
    know. We don’t own a scale at our house.

  • Sleeping:  Good
    some nights, not so good on others. It’s hit or miss really.

  • Food
    French fries [still!], tomatoes with salt, okras and
    rice! Yum!

  • Food
    Pickles [Oh the irony] and sadly I am adding garlic to
    the list. I had some pot stickers from my fave Chinese place and the
    garlic in the dipping sauce made me feel so ick!

  • Missing: Sunny
    side up eggs

  • Symptoms: Nausea
    is subsiding though I still have my moments, dizzy spells, still feeling
    very tired. Also I notice I get motion sickness A LOT! Sometimes even when
    I am walking!! Cray cray right?!

  • Doctor’s
    Next one is about 2 ½ weeks away

  • Movement: I
    am definitely feeling something, nothing that the hubs or kiddo can feel
    yet though. Mostly I can feel movement when I am sitting on the couch or
    being still.

  • Gender
    / Names: 
    We are going to find out in November! We have a girl
    name picked out, no boy names yet…

  • Best
    moment of the week:  
    Going to Charlotte to see my seester
    and MIL over the weekend! I love Charlotte and it was great to see my
    seester and her new place, see my MIL and eat her AMAZING food! She
    totally made me some okras and rice =) and of course no trip to the Queen
    City would be complete without a stop at Pinkberry! YUM! I wish we had one
  • What
    I’m looking forward to: 
    Finding out the gender next month!

  •  What
    I did / Got for baby: 
    Nothing this week, we’re really waiting
    until we find out the gender before we start buying things or registering.      
I wish I could relive this moment…it was SO yummy!
