15 Weeks! & 1st bump PHOTO! :)

YAY! 15 weeks! April 10-17

Here is what we have been up to this week:

Weight Gain:  none yet ... still below pre-preg weight...I'm sure it will all catch up to me eventually ha!

Maternity Clothes
: a mix but I sure enjoy my mat. clothes and "letting it show" at work, now that everyone knows. ha! I still feel that sometimes I am trying to hide my belly bc it still doesn't quite feel like a bump... just like a gut lol

I am sleeping great- no complaints here.  Still love my sleep and will take all I can get-- in fact I slept for about 9 hours last night, got up for 2 hours and then took a 3 hour nap! ha oh the life on the weekend!
Best Moment of this week: 
Well, totally unrelated... but K insists that I put this on here-- K won his championship game for soccer! WAHOO! so proud of my man!!!!!!! :-D... 
baby-wise: one week closer to finding out the gender ?

nope, but I'm not really spending much time looking for it tummy makes all sorts of movements after I eat but it also makes noises so therefore, that isn't the baby ha
Food cravings: 
Salt & Vinegar chips, and just eating light meals in general.  Sweet things are still TOO sweet for me.  I would much rather fruit! Oranges, strawberries or anything!

What I miss:
still lacking energy but that might be changing? i was able to stay up super late 2 nights ago (my best friend was in labor with her first baby!) and i didn't completely die at work the next day... so who knows.  
Symptoms: HEADACHES!! oh my goodness! The first 5 days of this week I have had terrible headaches.  Extra Strength Tylenol didn't even help a little.  The only thing that has helped even a tiny bit is a soda.  I have drank approx 1 a day since then to help avoid this.  My blood pressure is really low which is good because that was something we were worried about with the headaches.  These could also be partly due to stress as some life decisions are constantly consuming my mind.  My neck has been super tight and sore too.  I think a pre-natal massage is in the agenda for me soon!
Acne... wow, on my back, neck, face, chest, everywhere... I never had acne as a teenage but boy do I feel for those kids now!

Ill let you choose this week- vote at the top right of my blog.  Right now we are 9 for boy and 7 for girl... almost 50/50! so close! I am dyyyying to know NOW! ha 

What I'm looking forward to:
(still true...) just dying to know the gender. :)
***don't forget to GO VOTE on what the gender is on the top right of the blog*** 
Ohhh..... and here yah go... I am finally going to cave and post a pic of "the bump!" :) 
We had picture day at school and everyone noticed the bump!  I still feel like its just a gut but I guess others can see it better than me. here is a pic from Thursday!

The Baby in week 15:
One way to deal with the havoc of pregnancy hormones: Focus on how much is happening with your baby. She's about the size of an orange this week, her ears have migrated to the sides of her head, and her eyes are moving to the front of her face. Plus, your little smarty-pants can now wiggle her fingers and toes and make breathing movements in preparation for life outside the womb.

Your body in week 15:

Pregnancy hormones are pretty rough on your body, especially the teeth and gums, causing inflammation and making them more susceptible to plaque and bacteria. Your formerly healthy gums may have become super-sensitive and prone to bleeding. (yup, every time I brush my teeth!) In addition, you might be coping with a chronic stuffy nose (yes) or even nosebleeds during pregnancy, also brought on by progesterone surging through your system. Fear not — it'll all pass. (Thank you very much! haha)


  1. Awww cute little baby bump!

  2. you definitely have a bump!! :) You look great. I understand completely about feeling like it's a "gut". :) I call it "baby bloat". How exciting that you get to find out the gender at 16 weeks! Our appointment will be closer to 18 or 19 weeks. Enjoy your Sunday!

  3. That is a cute baby bump! You are glowing in that picture too!
