A little baby belly bump | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

A little baby belly bump

So here we are! I finally got some pictures ft the baby growing in my body. I want to do weekly pregnancy update posts because that isn't like too much, right?? Also those roses are from Valentines from J! They were deliverd with a little teddy and chocolate. I USED to think "haha teddy's and chocolate on Valentines day is so stupid and dumb!" and then Jason gave them to me and I was like "THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!" and Jason tucked me into my nap the other day with my teddy so it's cool. Also, roses make a pretty prop so that's why I have em in these pictures!






I am NOT pushing out just fyi because it looks like I am straining to show a bump here haha I was just pushing back my shirt so you can tell there is a little bump there! 


Heart sweater: Windsor a few years ago, similar here. Leggings, forever 21 as always! Found HERE. Wedges: Groopdealz HERE

Eh hem, so I am 15 weeks and 5 days today! Baby is the size of Navel Orange/ 4.5" long/ 2-3oz according to my app! I use the what to expect app in case you were wondering because there are like a million apps to pick from!

We find out gender in *3 WEEKS!!!* I am starting to dream it's a girl (like literally in my dreams baby is in fact a girl) so I guess I "feel" more girl?? Baby's heart rate was 144 last week and APPARENTLY if heart rate is above 140, it's a "girl" sign according to wives tales.

We won't go into weight gain because yes I WAS kind of freaking out at my dr appointment but my dr is such a little sweetie. I asked the nurse what "normal" weight gain is at this point and she obviously told the dr I was worried about it because he kept telling me I looked great and was just fine and you can't even tell I'm pregnant! haha he really is awesome and always just so sweet and tries to make me feel like I look amazing for 15 weeks pregnant. So yeah, weight gain is normal I guess! He even said since I'm small, I could gain 40 pounds and I would be fine. Obviously I would love to not gain that much, but it's nice to know that if I do, I'm still normal!

As far as cravings, nothing in particular, kind of like I WANT ____ RIGHT NOW type of thing, but the "craving" is always different. I love fruit and veggies most but I have always loved those. I def eat more apples than before. If I HAD to pick a craving it would be fruits and veggies because I can always eat those and not feel grossed out by them.

Things I hate: nothing I can think of! Some stuff that I threw up back in the throw up days still sounds yucky to me (like subway, protein shakes, and little Caesars pizza to be precise.) 

If I had to say I "miss" anything it would be clothes! Right now I'm in the baggy clothes stage where if I wear anything tight, I just look chubby and not really pregnant. And I guess I miss feeling normal, like when I eat I feel blehhh or when I don't eat I feel blehhh so pretty much all the time I feel bleh no matter what! But obviously that is fine with me if it means a baby at the end! :) 

And that is my update! I tried to answer those poll questions you see on other people's prego blogs but I didn't want to do Q&A style. So yeah! Until next week!

  2. Congratulations! I hope it's a girl too! (mostly because it would be fun to dress her up!) I love the sweater you're wearing, very cute! And it's so nice to get flowers on Valentine's day-- even if you don't think you want it, once you get some you're pretty darn happy about it haha!
    How's it feel to be growing an orange inside you!? I'd be pretty freaked out, but maybe that's because I've never had children! Can't wait to see more.

    1. Thank you so much!! It would be soooo fun to dress up a little lady :) And yes the flowers were seriously the best surprise, I'm so sad they're starting to die now! It is pretty crazy growing a baby, I think it will be crazier when I can actually FEEL baby!!!

  3. Ahhh!! You are the cutest! I love these! And girl, you totally don't look big! I was thinking that when I watched your vlog - that you still look normal for being through the first trimester! I'm glad the doctor made you feel better, though! Sounds like you've got a good one!

    1. Thank you!! K you're so nice to say that!! I just see that I gained weight (which is what you do when you're pregnant!) But I've never like gained so fast before so I was just like hopefully this is ok!! haha I eat so much because I am ALWAYS so hungry so I was nervous I was eating TOO much. Thank goodness that Dr knows what's up!

  7. You are adorable!! Love thy little baby bump. You post about your sweet baby as much as you want. I did every week. I wanted to document it for my kids so I did it whenever I wanted. Ha ha! Can't wait to hear the gender. I was right on both of mine. I knew Cam was a boy weeks before we found out and it was e same with Emmy. It's amazing how we have that intuition.

  12. Oh my gosh when I was pregnant I think I gained 35lbs and cried the entire way. I lost it thankfully (and then gained some back but I'm comfortable at my new weight). My doctor actually said I should have gained more since I was tiny like you. But honestly I couldn't imagine gaining anymore weight than I already had. I had a dream that I had a girl when I was pregnant and the girl looked just like Sophie, except this girl had green eyes (haha, definitely not happening). We had the same high heart rate with Sophie too! I think she was 144, 150 and then dropped a bit to the 140's and then probably jumped a bit again, but she was a little girl, and we love her more than anything.

    You have the cutest little bump :) yes and the awkward stage of I'm pregnant but I look chubby because my bump isn't defined is so awkward :|

    1. That makes me feel a lot better!! I bet I'll gain something like that with how dang starving I am all the time haha always eating! Yeah ours has been in the 140s-150s this whole time so I am thinking girl!! That is so cool you dreamt a baby and it looked like Sophie (minus the green eyes)!! Like that's amazing!! I wonder if ours will look like baby in my dreams?!

  13. Ahhh you are so adorable with your little bump! I'm kind of really hoping our first baby is a girl, so I feel like I'll constantly be looking for wives tales signs that I'm carrying a girl when I'm pregnant hahaha.

    1. Thank youuuu!! haha yes I am always googling wives tales and most point to girl so far!! I can't wait to find out!!

  14. You're looking great! It's an awkward time because you don't feel quite like yourself (and probably already feel like you've been pregnant forever), but you aren't really showing yet. Your little bump will keep growing though! Crossing my fingers for a girl. :)

  16. You look so adorable!! Don't stress about weight at all :) I ate healthy and worked out regularly and still gained 40 pounds (a lot of it was water weight honestly). Plus once you hold your sweet babe you honestly won't care a bit! It comes off super fast if you plan on breastfeeding too :)

    1. haha you are totally fine!! It kind of is sneaking up on me, too (this growing belly that is) :) Oh girl don't get me started on being sentimental (and maybe a little sensitive...) haha I was trying to go to your blog but the webpage doesn't work for me! Just thought I would let you know cause I was about to go stalk away haha

  27. You look perfect with your cute little bump! Can't wait to hear what you're having! ALSO, do not worry about the weight gain, your dr is totally right. I was tiny before both of my pregnancies and I gained 50 lbs with both! YEP 50! but 20 ended up being water weight toward the very end, seriously don't even worry about it! You will be fine! :)

  32. OMG how cute are you! I don't think a weekly update is too much and really it would be awesome for you to document and look back at it all one day. I love these photos, they really are darling and precious. All those nightly dreams about a little girl must mean something though! ;o)
