Bumpdate {week 15}

OMG, I need to be better about posting these! I've been so busy working in my classroom, that at this point I'm almost at 16 weeks! Oh well, here's my post for week 15...

{August 9}

Size of baby: an orange
Weight gain: Ok, so this week was a little ridiculous...I’m definitely up at least 6 pounds; maybe more but my scale is so sketchy and I’m also in denial. Woof. 
Maternity clothes: Continuing with the belly band on every pair of pants…but I did get my first pair of maternity jeans and I am SOOO excited to wear them!
Gender: This week I started to think more toward boy…I don’t really know why, but when I picture our baby, I just see a boy now. But some days I still think girl. Ugh…is it September 21 yet?!?!
Movement: Ok, so I think I might be going crazy, but I thought I felt something this week! It might just be gas bubbles though….which is probably more likely!
Cravings: Pasta, fruit, pickles and my lemon bars. Oh, and I just had to have Chipotle today!
Symptoms: I’m still having morning sickness! What the heck?! I got out of the shower Wednesday was almost completely knocked out by it. At least I still have my Zofran…
Workouts: 20 miles this week; still at a 10:00 mile pace. My runs felt relatively easy this week!
Sleep: I don’t know if it’s my internal clock or this baby keeping me awake, but I cannot go to sleep before midnight!! Even when I’m super tired and have to get up early! I don’t know what I’m going to do next week when I have to start getting up for teacher workdays!
What I miss: Normal clothes…I was at the mall and almost cried when I realized J Crew doesn't have a maternity section (Dear J Crew, can we work on that?! Preferably in the next, oh, 5 months or so?!)
Best moment this week: Finding out another teacher on my fourth grade team is also pregnant! She is about 4 weeks behind me…I am so excited we can commiserate with each other!
Looking forward to: Ok, I’m not 100% looking forward to this, but I am a teensy bit excited to go back to school. I can’t wait to teach a new grade level at a new school with new people! And I need some routine in my life….and also something to keep me busy so I stop constantly snacking.

I promise next time I'll write about non-pregnancy stuff (like my classroom and how much fun that's been to move and set up-HA!)!! Happy Hump Day!


  1. J Crew has maternity online ;)
    Can't wait to see pics of your classroom and hear about school stuff. I *almost* miss all of the back to school fun.

  2. I saw Jen's comment and had to look... umm J Crew has 6 maternity clothing items, total. All pants. And I'm sorry, who pays $118 for pants you can only wear ~6 months?!?!? Lame, J Crew! Hit up H&M, Forever 21, Old Navy, and Gap instead! :)

  3. Good luck with your new school! 20 miles?! That's awesome!!

  4. You look so great!! And so fun that you have a teammate who will be pregnant with you! Makes the long days a little easier!

  5. OMG i love it!!! :) and loved your invite too!! :)
