15 Weeks (and 3 days)!

Aack.... I'm so behind in my blog posting. With Bobby working so much, I'm having a hard time squeezing in everything I want/need to post about! My two little guys keep me on my toes so much! So without further ado her is my belated posting for week 15 of my pregnancy!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 15 weeks (and 3 days). Praise God!

Size of Baby: about 4-3/4" long and 2 ounces (according to the American Pregnancy Association) but at last weeks ultrasound the tech said that our baby's measurements he or she is already 4 ounces. I'll take that any day!

Total Weigh Gain/Loss: Stupid stupid stupid question. To be honest though, I gained another 2 pounds...:(

Maternity Clothes: There are still a few non-maternity t-shirts that I can wear but other than that, I've switched over to almost all ta-ta's have grown almost as much as my stomach. HA! (a big shout-out here to my Sister-in-law Melanie who brought me tons of her old maternity clothes!)

Gender: We don't know yet, but on our next appointment on Monday the 25th I'll be certain to ask her to check again! I'm having really strong feelings that its another boy though!

Movement: I've felt a bunch of pops and bumps for several weeks now, but they have really slowed down... enough to make me a little stir crazy to be honest. The sonogram tech said that she was surprised that I was feeling much of anything yet last time I saw her. She said that my placenta is on the top and it should be blocking out most anything at this point. I'm choosing to focus on that bit of info!!

Sleep: Sleep is now getting difficult for me. Almost every night I wake up between 2 or 3 to use the restroom and then can't go back to sleep!

What I Miss: Right now I'm missing sleeping on my stomach and drinking all the caffeine that I'd like to!

Cravings: Ya'll are totally going to laugh at me. I have been craving cabbage! This makes no sense to me I think mostly for me its the fresh crunch that comes with it. I would probably gag if I had to eat it cooked! (Just for grins.... with Graham it was jalapenos, with Grady it was pickles and with Caroline it was grapefruit)

Symptoms: I am feeling really good now! Almost all sicky stomach is gone and my energy is way up!

Best Moment This Week: I am starting to get the confidence to think of baby names and I even cleaned some stuff out of our spare bedroom. These are really big things for me!!

I hope that everyone had a great weekend!

Yay for pregnancy updates!!!!! :) 15 weeks (and 3 days) is awesome! You must be due in September? Gosh, I'm not looking forward to when I can't sleep on my stomach. That is my all-time favorite! I'm wondering when I should stop. LOL! Can't wait to find out what you're having. That's always so much fun. :)

Fantastic... love your updates :)) Great that you're up to thinking about names and starting to get the room ready :) If you're ever worried about movements, you should ring - never hesitate - that's why they get paid the big bucks. In my next pregnancy, my philosophy will be that "I'm paying them to do the worrying for me... and always call/have an US for a check. Thinking of you always xoxo
