As of today, I am 15 weeks, 3 days along. And have gained less than 5lbs since the beginning...how?! I have been out-eating Jake for almost 2 weeks now. For lunch one day last week, I ate 4 grilled cheeses (and they were absolutely delicious, by the way). Another day, I ate 3 plates of macaroni and cheese. I would have only eaten 2, but Shelby (the aid in my classroom) brought me the last little bit and made me eat it. Ok, she didn't make me, but that's what I'm going with. I do have a slight baby bump, which Jake is thrilled about, and again, what 21 year old kid is happy that their girlfriend is gaining weight? Haha :)
I love the fact that we have so much support from everyone it seems like, and I also love the fact that I work with 4 year olds, because they remind me (every day) that I am pregnant. Because I am peeing so much, the kids were wondering why I am always leaving the room. One day, I got sick of 15 of them asking me "where did you go Miss Leslie", one after the other, so I told all of them that it's because the baby makes me go potty all the time. Now, whenever I leave the room, I have to hear all of them say "oh, the baby is making Miss Leslie pee again".
Also, there is a little girl in my class, Macey, whose mom had a baby back in November, and she was old enough to understand some of what was going on. When I came back from one of my appointments, Macey got really quiet, pulled me down to her level, and asked, "Did you have to pee in a cup? My mommy did, allllllll the time", and then she started laughing! She also asks me EVERYDAY if I am having a girl. She also told me that my baby is going to be a rock star when she comes out, and that because I am pregnant, and I am not allowed to go outside. I have asked her why on countless occasions, and her only answer is "because you're pregnant". Maybe I can use that excuse later on..."Yes, I have to have a meet and greet with Mr. Aldean- because I'm pregnant..." :)
