15 weeks!

15 weeks!
"Continuing the march towards normal proportions, baby's legs now outmeasure the arms. And, finally, all four limbs have functional joints. Your fetus is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, though you probably still can't feel the movements."
How far along? 15 weeks
Baby’s Size: a naval orange, one of my favorite fruits :)
Total Weight Gain Around 8 pounds now.
Maternity Clothes I've been wearing maternity tank tops for awhile now, and I'm going to have to start wearing only maternity shorts and jeans soon :( I've been using the "hairtie trick" for my regular shorts but oh man... it's hardly working anymore.
Gender: Still thinking it's a boy. We MIGHT find out this week!
Sleep: Not too bad. I don't think I'm getting up QUITE as often anymore.
Symptoms: A lot of abdominal pain this week :( But it's okay. Just means Peanut is growing!
Best Moments this week: Getting to hear the baby's heartbeat at my OB appointment was amazing. We also went downstate for a wedding, which was really fun.
Food Cravings: Macaroni and Cheese. Seriously.
Food Aversions: Anything pork. I've always hated it, but now the smell is absolutely nauseating. And I mean ANY pork- ham, pork chops, bacon, pork roasts, etc.
What I miss: It was REALLY annoying to be one of the only sober ones at the wedding we went to. Everyone else was drunk and having a great time... and then there was me, ordering my sprites with grenadine, lol.
What I am Looking forward to: Our ultrasound this week. Finally getting to see Peanut will be really amazing and a big relief. It'll be nice to finally know that everything is all right.
Milestones: There will be two this week- hearing the heartbeat for the first time, and our first ultrasound (FINALLY!!)

  1. Aw, that's so excited! The little "whoosh whoosh" of the heartbeat never gets old :) Congrats!

  2. congrats! I just happened to come across your blog over on "Evie makes 3"

    I CRAVED macaroni and cheese myself. Actually, in the beginning it was all I could stomach. Then I craved throughout the rest.


  3. I remember that first ultrasound. It's a really surreal experience. Very cool.

    I couldn't handle the thought of fish. I even had to leave a Japanese restaurant because other people were having fish and it made me so sick. Pregnancy is a wild ride.

  4. Same here Jess! In the beginning it was one of the few things that didn't make me sick and yep still crave it once in a while
