I can not believe that we are already to the 15 week mark... time is flying by! I realized as I was getting ready tonight that I had not taken any "bump" pics yet. This one isn't great and I'll have to bust out the real camera soon but here is the first pic:
How Far Along? 15 weeks!
Weight Gain? 5 lbs... which I don't think is too bad... I've been working out a few times a week and I try not to over indulge when it comes to food. According to my doc, I am doing great weight-wise... good news!
Maternity Clothes? Not yet! The jeans are definitely a bit tighter around the waist these days but maxi dresses and leggings are quickly becoming the everyday wardrobe. And thank goodness for yoga pants!
Size of Baby? According to www.babycenter.com Baby H is about 4 inches long and should weigh around 2.5 ounces... about the size of an apple.
Boy or Girl? We don't know yet but hopefully we'll find out at the next doc appointment! We can't wait to officially know, pink or blue!
Movement? There have been some "flutters" lately but it's hard to tell what exactly those are.
Sleep? For the most part I've been sleeping okay but there have been a few nights where that glass of water late at night has woken me up and sent me running to the bathroom. It doesn't happen every night so I can deal with it and I'm still good sleeping on my side and semi on my stomach.
Food Cravings? A couple of weeks ago it was cheeseburgers but lately it's been my sweet tooth that has kicked into overdrive! Mint chocolate chip ice cream has been sounding divine these days as well as a good box of my organic mac and cheese... so random!
What I Miss? Jimmy John's... seriously! As soon as this kid is out there better be a turkey sandwich from Jimmy John's in my hand!
Symptoms? I am counting my blessings that I had zero morning sickness! Early on there were days that I felt absolutely exhausted but my energy has been back to normal lately. Today was the first day in a while that I felt super tired even after getting a good night's sleep but other than that everything has been great and for that I am beyond thankful!
Best Moments? The last two doc appointments when B and I were able to see our baby! Such an unbelievable moment... we already love Baby H so, so, so much and we love looking at those sweet ultrasound pics.
Looking Forward To? Finding out if we're having a boy or girl! We can't wait to decorate the nursery and start thinking of names. And of course I am really looking forward to starting Baby H's wardrobe ;) We're also really enjoying all of our reading material and learning about pregnancy and becoming parents. It's such an awesome responsibility and we are just so grateful for this time in our lives!
