15 weeks

Baby must be growing, because this week I got HUGE! Seriously, it is way to early, but bring on the maternity clothes – they are WAY too comfortable to wait any longer!

14 weeks (2)15 weeks (22)

14 and 15 weeks – Big difference!

With Blair, I wasn’t quite this big, but I did have a good bit of change between 14 and 15 weeks with her just like this time. I’m going to spare you the pictures – I have my shirt pulled up in all of the Blair ones! This pregnancy is so much like Blair’s. I have experienced the same (almost non-existent) symptoms with this baby as I did with her. The worst I’ve gone through is being starving and not being able to think of something I wanted to eat. I know, I have it real bad. Maybe that’s part of why I love being pregnant so much!

How far along? 15 Weeks

Size of baby: About the size of an apple

Total weight gain/loss: 1.5 pounds. Just wait folks, it will come. I’ll quit posting it at some point I’m sure! One month when pregnant with Blair, we went on a cruise, and I gained 8 pounds!

Maternity clothes? Bring ‘em on! I love maternity clothes and don’t see why I should put them off any longer! Plus, I’m a nurse. I don’t have many real clothes to begin with! Been wearing the pants for a week or so, but I added some shirts/dresses this week.

Sleep: Fabulous when I’m not working!

Movement: Just started! Different from last time. I was 17 weeks with Blair, and it was like popcorn. This is like tickling or light pressure right where the baby is.

Food cravings: Fruit, peanut butter and jelly.

Symptoms: I’m feeling great for the most part. I think most of my being tired is from working nights.

Gender: Can’t wait to find out!

What I miss: Sushi. As usual.

What I’m loving: My lounge pants, maternity jeans.

What I am looking forward to: Finding out the gender in two weeks!

Milestones: Feeling the baby, maternity clothes, my belly popping!

Best moment this week: Hints of feeling the baby on Tuesday and Wednesday. My favorite part of pregnancy, I think!
