15 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 15 Weeks!
Size of baby: The size of a navel orange. (4-4.5 in. long and weighs 2-3 oz.)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: The doc didn't tell me, but I think it's about 6-7 lbs gained.
Maternity Clothes: I'm definitely wearing the few pairs of maternity pants I have as much as possible. They are so comfortable. Dresses and shirts are fine, but I'm about to have to make the full transition to maternity pants. They're just so much better than fighting with my uncomfortable regular pants!
Gender: We find out 3 weeks from tomorrow...Nov. 23rd!!! Cannot wait!
Movement: Not yet, but hopefully in the next few weeks the "flutters" will start!
Food Cravings/Aversions: I've been able to eat more of the foods I like lately. I get full pretty quickly, but then I'm hungry quicker too. I still like pickles and carbs. One thing I still don't have an appetite for is Mexican food....which is a total bummer!!
What I miss: I still want that dern White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha! :-)
Sleep: Sleeping good, but have been tossing and turning more lately.
Symptoms: Fatigue and I still have some nausea on occasion...with actual sickness a couple of times last week (bummer), irritability and moodiness, frequent trips to the bathroom (which are slowing down), some food cravings & aversions, congestion and runny nose.
Best Moment this week: Our appointment last week was great!! We scheduled the big ultrasound and Joseph was able to go and hear the heartbeat! We got rid of a BUNCH of stuff and donated it to Salvation Army. They came to pick it all up on Saturday. We are going to write it off on our taxes, and it's going to be a great help. Tonight we had dinner with my great friend, Julie, and her husband Josh. Julie is having a little surgery tomorrow morning so I ask that you please keep her in your prayers.

I hope y'all have a great week!!!


  1. You still look so tiny in your picture! :)

  2. HA! I don't know if I'd use the word tiny to describe me....the bump, yes....the body, noooo!! ;-) I am ready for an obvious baby bump though...I'm sure I'll regret saying that when I'm waddling like a penguin. Not really, bring it on! :)


Thank you for reading and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I enjoy reading every single one of them!!
