Fifteen Weeks

It's been an exhausting 15 weeks, but baby is finally showing itself! Adam laughed this week, when he realized my tummy had suddenly (and I mean suddenly) grown. After two months straight of being sick, and then getting a nasty diarrhea bug that drained everything out of me, I had lost a considerable amount of weight and felt like I was wasting away. I visited Urgent Care one evening during my fight with the "bug", and they pumped me up with nearly two bags of fluid and sent me home with a prescription for Zofran, an anti-nausea medicine, so I could at least start eating food. Although I spent the next several days living off rice and applesauce, I was at least eating. And once the bug bit the dust, I still had a few days worth of Zofran to keep the morning sickness at bay. I couldn't believe how hungry I was. All day my stomach would be grumbling and all day I would be snacking. This weekend I have finally seen some weight put back on, and my baby is announcing his or her presence to the world. I'm hoping that I will start getting some of my energy back in the next couple of weeks, because as it currently stands, if I don't get a nap during the day, bedtime calls me between 7:30 and 8:00. Which isn't altogether bad, but I do kinda feel like an old lady when I am in bed by 8 pm.

Maybe it's all the rubbing that belly is getting that is making that baby grow so fast all of a sudden. ;)
