How far along: 15 weeks
Baby is the size of: An Avocado – yum
Gender: Surprise until March
Weight gain: 4.8 pounds at my appointment last week
Maternity clothes: Not yet, but thinking pants are in my near future. I’ve been wearing Large tanks with sweaters or long sleeve shirts with a vest. Growing with the seasons.
Stretch marks: None yet. Slathering on cream like it’s going to help
Belly button in or out: Very in. And so is my navel ring.
Sleep: Not bad. My Mom bought me a Snoogle and it has been a total lifesaver at times though.
Best moment this week: While in line at Starbucks I think I felt my first kicks/movement!!
Worst moment this week: Being extremely overwhelmed registering AND finding a date for my Shower. Darn weather and Holidays!
Miss anything: BEER! It’s Football season man. And Deli meat. I. Love. Deli. Meat.
Movement: YEAH. As my brother calls them, “fetus-farts”.
Cravings: Carbs early on. Then ground meat (burgers, meatballs, meat sauce). Can’t really say anything particular at the moment.
Queasy or sick: Got sick for only the third time, but it was because of these prenatal vitamins that my body clearly does not like!
Labor Signs: Not yet!
Symptoms: Cramping, ab ligaments, and headaches.
Wedding rings on or off: On. Hoping my fingers don’t gain weight – weird.
Looking forward to: Seriously, March! But really getting started on the nursery so the spare room stops looking like such a cluttered mess.
