How far along: 15 weeks
Babe size: Apple
Total weight gain/loss: About 6 pounds
Sleep: I usually wake up an average of 3 times a night. Also, I get anxious if I feel like I won't get enough sleep that night. On the flip side, since I'm still really tired, I sleep like a rock when I am sleeping!
Movement: I think I may have felt one movement yesterday, but I wasn't one hundred percent sure. I guess when I feel them more regularly, I will know whether or not it was one. I am usually over-aware of what is going on with my body, so I hope I'm not wrong.
Food cravings/aversions: I have craved green-bean casserole, and finally got up the nerve to make it. The smell of cold cream of mushroom soup makes me gag, so I held a rag soaked in lemon juice up to my nose, and that did the trick. As far as aversions go, I have recently thrown up frosted mini-wheats on more than one occasion, so I guess we could say that one is an aversion.
Pregnancy Symptoms: Achy sides and lower abdomen, as well as some random tightening across my belly. I am pretty forgetful, as in last week I tried to put a dirty dish in the fridge. I'm also intensely emotional, which has it's ups and downs. I love being in touch with how I'm feeling, well, when it's a good day...
What I miss: Feeling like myself, period. I feel like something has taken me over, and I don't know quite who I am.
What I'm looking forward to: Some more movement, and our next appointment in one week. Also, we're finding out the gender pretty soon. I found your comments to be helpful, and I can't wait to share what we find out!
Milestones: Well, when I looked at the picture Billy took for me this week, I thought I looked huge-ish, which is a milestone I'm pretty happy about (so, maybe I shouldn't use the word huge, but I don't know what other word to use)...
Best moment this week: I got to run up to the birthing center and hear the baby's heartbeat again last Monday, and that will never fail to make me feel incredibly blessed.
Moments with Billy: Sunday, I got sick and had to miss church (yes, even into the second trimester...). Right after Billy finished leading worship he came home to sit with me until he had to go back. Just his presence and touch made me want to cry. Though it doesn't take much to push me to tears these days, I was super grateful.
