Week 15 of 40

This photo was taken at the McWane Science Museum by my friend Nikki Ballard. We were trying to build an arch.

Sorry this post is late but my 30th birthday was this past Friday and I have been super busy.

Pregnancy Stats

  • Weeks Pregnant:  I was 14 Weeks and 6 Days pregnant when this photo was taken on Saturday.
  • Size of my tiny baby:  A naval orange  (Length:  3.5  in.)
  • My Weight:  122.4 lbs.  Total Gain:  7.4 lbs. ( I actually didn’t weigh myself last week, so I am not sure if I have gained anymore weight.

How am I feeling?

  • Emotionally:  I have been having pretty intense mood swings.  I have also started to freak out a bit about being ready for the baby etc.   We have so much left to do and only about 5 months to accomplish these things.
  • Physically:  No change really, I have still been pretty exhausted.
  • Fun Pregnancy Stuff: To make my 30th birthday sting a little less, I planned a trip to Birmingham with a couple of friends.  We got all dressed up and had a nice dinner on Friday night.  On Saturday, we went to the McWane Science Center and then went maternity shopping.  Since almost none of my jeans, tops or bras fit, I was in desperate need to stock up on maternity basics.  Maternity shopping is overwhelming.   I can’t afford to buy a whole new wardrobe so I had to be frugal and I needed help.  I am very thankful some my friends were able to help me out.  The best part of the whole shopping trip was realizing that I now wear a D cup!  The excitement of my new bra size caused me to yell out loud in Target.  I am thrilled about it.
  • Cravings:  I think my friend Nikki put it best when she said, “Selena pretty much craves whatever someone else is eating.”  I completely agree with her statement.  On Saturday,  Nikki ordered some Mac & Cheese Bites at the restaurant where we had lunch and I immediately ordered some too.  I had to have them.

    Yeah, I got super excited about that boobage too. Even meant to take a picture just so I could remember. When I got pregnant, I was an “almost” C. During pregnancy I was a full C. During breast feeding I got to almost out of a D. Now I’m a back to B. Very sad. And on top of that, I went from a 34 to 36, which I hear is common. Enjoy them while you can 🙂

    Oh, they will get bigger. There were times it took everything in my power to keep them contained! LOL. And I loved it. I wore anything I could to show them off! My theory was to flaunt it while I had it.

      You know I was flaunting them at first, but I wasn’t really ready for the attention. It kind of embarrasses me.

Tell me what you're thinking...
