Letters to Baby K - Week 15
I can't believe I'm already 15 weeks pregnant! It seems like the weeks are starting to go by faster now and I'm definitely okay with that. The further I can get away from my first trimester the better! See ya later nausea! Praying it stays far far away, but with every symptom that disappears a new one appears. During week 14 headaches really picked up. I'm not sure what is causing them, but I'm guessing it is due to hormone changes or my increased blood volume/circulation. I'm also crying a lot more, but only at sad things or really happy touching things, not random weird things like a cereal commercial or something, haha! I think the lowest point for week 14 was hearing the news of Kidd Kraddick passing away. It makes me tear up just think about it now! He was such a wonderful, funny, and generous man. I actually had the pleasure of meeting him once and I'm glad I got the opportunity before he passed. My husband must think I'm crazy. We were driving to work and listening to them talk about memories of him on the radio and I just start bawling. Justin knew why because all morning I just kept saying, "I can't believe he's gone!". I know that it's mostly the hormones, but I feel like I lost a part of my life since I listened to his show every morning. I know, I'm silly! Anyone else cry over silly things? I'd love to hear your stories!
I've also started feeling the so called flutters...I think? haha! They feel like bubbles or like a fish swimming. I know it is super duper early for someone who is a first time mommy to feel movements, but I can't help but think I'm feeling the early movements. I sure am ready for real/stronger movements and to be able to share that with my husband.
Other than that, week 14 was pretty calm. Baby K is now around 4 inches, about the size of an apple and weights around 2 oz. Each week I read baby updates to Justin, who always replies, "Whoa!! It's getting so big!!" haha! Dear God I hope I don't have a baby as big as my husband was!
If anyone has any questions or stories I would love to answer/hear them! I respond to all questions here on the blog or through e-mail if you have your personal e-mail attached to the account you leave your comment with. See you next week for week 16!
