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:
far along: 15 weeks
big is baby: About the size of a navel orange, weighing in at 2.5
gain: 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.
cravings: French fries [still!], tomatoes with salt, okras and
aversions: 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?!
appointment: 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
/ Names: We are going to find out in November! We have a girl
name picked out, no boy names yet…
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
I’m looking forward to: Finding out the gender next month!
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!|
