Almost 15 weeks and Still Leaking

15 weeks tomorrow.  Still surreal.  Wish I had a doppler to check things out from time to time, but ah well.  My burning sore throat is gone, yippee, but the coughing and leakage still exist (though less frequently, thankfully).  Now DS is sick with something different -- like a stomach bug.  He's the king of puke... so he's overdosing on cartoons right now, you get whatever you want if you're puking up everything that enters your body.  Hope today will be pukeless.

Haven't taken any belly pics yet, but will probably so do soon.  Meanwhile, this is the most creative and cute video ever.  Also, that mom has got a slammin' bod, which did not seem impacted whatsoever by a baby.  Hmmph!

This week, I have an ob/gyn appointment (it's been a month since the last one already!!) and I scheduled it during a long planning period in the morning.  Hopefully, the wait time will be zero and I can be back at work in time. 

New symptom -- extreme itchiness on my back, all over.  I'm having a hard time not scratching, but I'm afraid I've drawn blood in numerous places.  I had a bad rash w/ DS too when he was in-utero, it's called PUPPS, but usually on the belly.  Right now, it's not intolerable, but I feel like a wild animal who needs to scratch its back on a tree sometimes...

Not too much to report, not too exciting... hopefully, I can have a productive Saturday today.  Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Sorry that I'm so far behind on your news... wow - 15 weeks :)) Fantastic news :) Hope your appt goes well this week and that the itch eases up - I had that during my pregnancies and drove me crazy ! Love to you and bub xoxo

  2. Oh my goodness I understand the itching. While I have never been pregnant, something in one of the drugs they gave me during retrieval has left me a big itchy mess! I, also, would love a tree to rub against. Maybe I should try the cats sisal scratching post....

  3. Oh I do hope the itchiness goes away soon.

  4. Yay for 15 weeks! A doppler does sound it would be fun. I still haven't heard he baby's heartbeat (at 12 weeks), but I have seen it moving.

    Sorry for the itchiness. I get dry-itchy skin during the winter from cold and esp if I don't lube up enough with lotion. Just recently I found myself itching until I was about ready to draw blood. :( Not fun. And I hope it goes away soon.

  5. Congrats on 15 weeks!! I deal with dry itchy skin year round if I don't slather myself with lotion at least every couple days. I hope your Hubby feels better soon!

  6. Yay for 16 weeks. I think you will be 16 weeks tomorrow! Are you going to find out the gender?

    1. Yes, I will be! You're so on top of it. Yes, we will find out -- you? Our DS was a surprise tho.
