Baby Update!

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.


  1. Yay for an update!! Now that you are farther along - you have to do them more often :) You really do look amazing and the most fun parts are coming!!!! Love you!!!

  2. WOAH! I missed the exciting news... CONGRATS! You are 5 weeks ahead of me :) I am 10 weeks along... what a fun time in life! I love reading your post and being like, "uh huh" and
    "good, I'm not the only one...". You are looking SO cute! I can't wait to get more of a bump! ADORABLE! Bless you!

  3. You look just darling! Glad you're doing photos--I absolutely cherish the collection of weekly photos we took when I was pregnant. I didn't like doing them some of the time, but now it's amazing to look back on the transformation!

  4. Oh, you look so pretty! Love the little bump. I have that dress, too, and LOVE it for for nursing my little one. It's easy peasy and one of the more flattering "nursing" items I have. Loved hearing your updated...hope you feel better soon. :)

    The heart beat always amazed me too...what a little miracle growing inside you!

  5. You look just wonderful!
    I think if you are really in tune with your body and you think you felt a movement, you probably did! I felt them really early and everyone kept telling me I was crazy but once they started to get stronger and there was no denying it, I was sure it was what I'd been feeling all along :)
    So exciting! Hope you have a great week and feel well!

  6. you look beautiful! i think it is safe to say that you will be staying away from the frosted mini-wheats.

    how sweet of hubby to do that for you ... i think i would have been in tears too and i'm not preggo! :)

  7. You look so cute! Pregnancy becomes you! :)

  8. How sweet! You look adorable :)

  9. You look beautiful. You are glowing!


Your words make my heart smile.
