15 Weeks

How Far Along:  15 weeks (and two days)

(Note: yes, we have a pink bathroom (even the ceiling is pink … wow), we are closing on Tuesday and the pink will be long gone come the weekend!!!)


Total Weight Gain/Loss: I honestly have no idea, i have not gotten on a scale since my last doctors appointment, i guess i’ll find out Friday.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, by choice. My regular clothes do fit but they are not comfortable and when you are running around with a toddler all day you want to be comfy so i have made the switch over to maternity pants. The shirts I have been wearing are regular shirts but they are not tight shirts (I love the ones with elastic on the bottom). I came to the realization that I am just a smaller size starting this pregnancy than I was with Liam and went out and bought a new pair of jeans in a smaller size and they are WONDERFUL!

Gender: OOoooh I could do a whole post on this. Even before we started trying for #2 I had dreams we would have a girl (in most dreams I was pregnant with a girl). When I went to my first appointment a few weeks ago the heartbeat was 177 which is a classic old wives tale that it would be a girl because it was high. I am so convinced that it is a girl that if they tell me in May it is a boy it will rock my world LOL. Honestly, it is so bad I feel at times I have already been told it is a girl (like, I may have even bought a few girl things…oy!)……. we shall see how true maternal gut instinct is in 5 weeks.

Movement: A little bit here and there, i think. Mostly when Liam is laying on me or I am laying on my stomach.

Sleep: I have to nap with Liam everyday or I get so tired I get horrible headaches in the late afternoon. I have not gotten that burst of energy in the second tri yet.

What I miss: Nothing ….. no doubt i was missing being able to have a drink during the stress of the move LOL 

Cravings: Nothing to strong these last few weeks. Still loving soft serve ice cream, pop corn (both of which i was not a huge fan of pre-pregnancy),  popsicles, and I about ate my weight in watermelon and rice krispie treats last week.

Symptoms: still sick every once in a while in the morning (you know your morning sickness was bad when your toddler stand by the toilet and pretends to gag …. oy the joys of the second time around LOL), and tired!

Best Moment this week: Finally having some beautiful weather and getting to enjoy it with my boys.

You are workin' that baby bump! I'm glad you are doing so well and that the sickness is getting better!

You look so cute!!!! So, I am ALWAYS wrong when it comes to guesses, so I wont even try! LOL! Can't wait to hear for sure!

I would die laughing mid puke if JJ started pretending to gag when I was puking! He immitates the Pertusis (whooping cough) commercials and I lose it!

Your bump is so cute! I hope the nasty feelings go away soon. It's going to be so cool once Liam "gets" there's something in your belly.
