Bump to Baby: 15 Weeks

You are growing so fast at about 4 inches long now. You are about the size of an apple which seems so big and so small all at the same time. You are looking more and more like a baby although you are a bit see-through right now. Your ears at in their proper place now and your eyes are moving to their proper place now. You are currently working on swallowing, breathing and sucking. You are moving around constantly during all kinds of flips and twists.

I wish I could say that this week was better that the last, but apparently the queasiness is just sticking with me. I'm down to throwing up only about every other day now. I would be pumped if I could go two days in a row without throwing up truthfully but I just haven't managed that yet. On top of all that I have been exhausted still and a bit cranky. But I guess almost constant queasiness and struggling all the time with food would make anyone a bit cranky. I also had an added weird blood blister that popped up in my mouth. Luckily it was gone within the next morning but it was definitely odd. Truthfully it was a weird week and I wish I could say that I was feeling better. The best thing about this week was definitely that every now again if I can feel you moving around in there.

With the pending arrival of baby number three, we knew that we would be making the big switch from four to five. Way back when we first married we traded in my car and got a Chevy Equinox. I have been driving that car for seven years now and I love it. Even though our plan was to have three kids, after having trouble getting pregnant with Connor I never imagined we would actually get pregnant with another one. Our plan was then to get Rob the next new car but then we got pregnant again. And we quickly figured out that we wouldn't be able to safely get three carseats in the back. Addie is in a booster, Connor is in a bigger five-point harness seat then we would need an infant seat. So we knew the time had come to get a bigger car but it wouldn't be for poor Rob, it would be for me. And even more was that the change would come with us selling his car, which was older than the Equinox.

It was a long afternoon but we managed to make the change. We traded in his Chevy Impala and got a Chevy Traverse which was basically a bigger version of the Equinox but with a third row. It was basically exactly what we needed because we were not going to be sad about having more room. And now Rob will be driving the new Traverse (which we named the tank) for the next couple months until we need to add the carseat and switch cars. Although we were sad about having to add a car payment to each month it was a much needed change and getting the car meant we had the room we needed. One step done in preparing for becoming a family of five.
