My how things change. 15 weeks and counting...

Well. It's happened.
My blog has now become a journal entry documenting my pregnancy. I swore it would never happen. BUT. It's my blog. And I want to remember these moments.
I'm actually going to be 16 weeks tomorrow (HOLY FOUR MONTHS ALREADY?), but I wanted to give a quick 15 week update.
How Far Along: 15 weeks
Maternity Clothes: Not yet. I know I'm going to regret saying this...but where is my cute baby belly? I've gotten a little over-eager and bought a few maternity things and a belly band. Still haven't used either yet. Don't necessarily WANT to get into maternity clothes yet...just want a cute bump. ;)

Gender: This is by far the number one question I get asked when people find out I'm expecting. Yes, we ARE finding out. Little babe was already quite the surprise, so I'd like to at least try to plan for a few things. ;)

Movement: Not yet. Can't wait for the little flutters.

Sleep: I don't think I've ever slept so much in my life. I get in bed about 9:30 every night. And I'm lucky to say...I'm still sleeping like a baby. Except for those pee breaks...

What I miss: Not much. Although, I DESPERATELY crave a cold turkey sandwich. I think that will be the first thing I eat post babe - 1 footlong turkey sandwich from Mr. Goodcents.

Cravings: No major cravings - so boring! However, I have eaten a bowl of ice cream every night this week. It's what I look forward to all.day.long.

Oh. And I kind of crave fitness. This is definitely a newfound love. I've always somewhat worked out, but never really got into a routine. Now, I have to get in at LEAST a 30 minute walk every day. I sort of crave it. And feels so good during and after. I especially LOVE prenatal yoga and swimming!

Other crazy symptoms: Now that the pain of first trimester is over, I don't really have any crazy symptoms. I'm not emotional or overly cranky. Ok. I lied. I had my first breakdown last night.

Size of Babe: Avocado. Speaking of...guac sounds amazing right about now.

Best Moment this week: After a particularly crazy moment/emotional breakdown, one of my kiddos found a note buried in one of their "popcorn tubs". (The tubs are a reward system I use, and I had taken them home to wash for fresh popcorn.) I opened the note, and it was from my sweet hubby. Just a little reminder that he loves me even if I'm a crazed pregnant woman.
And being surprised by hubby when he stops me, bends down to my belly, and says "Hey bebe. Hey there." So cute.
Oh. And getting a little onsie from some Rhode Island friends that says, "Somebody in Rhode Island loves me!" Adorable!
Bump Pics:
Yes. I've provided 2 pictures this week.
No. I'm not vain.
I simply was just trying to get the best belly angle. I really do have a belly. It really just looks like I had one too many bowls of ice cream. Or chicken burritos. Which hey - maybe I did.

Girl, bring on the preggo posts. I am so glad I did mine this time around. They are very cool to look back on and see the changes. I totally get that just want the bump to appear feeling. It will be here soon! Can't wait to hear what baby Ruby wil be! :)

I like the prego blog take over! Mine did that too! And I think a turkey sandwich won't hurt. At least it didn't with me! :)

My first pregnancy, I was a bit over-emotional about not "showing' much. Like as in someone would ask how the pregnancy was going and occasionally all I could think of is how I didn't look pregnant and it brought tears to my eyes. :)

Second and third pregnancies have been different, of course. In any case, finally "feeling" pregnant is a wonderful thing. :)
