15 Weeks

Technically this photo is 15w2d but life is what happens when you're trying to make plans! I had The Kid That Lives on the Couch take this photo and (per usual) I don't look my best but I'm trying to keep it real. I am wearing my new maternity pants and they're simply too big. I fit in a size or two smaller but the pouch part was tight so I got this size because the pouch was comfy and I figured that was more important than showing off my cute bootie. Ha! These days I definitely do not feel cute or fashionable so I might indulge in a new dress for Valentine's Day date night and my anniversary (within 2 weeks of another.)

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 15 Weeks

Size of baby: Navel Orange

Total Weight Gain/Loss: The 4 pounds I had gained are a thing of the past. I am down those 4 pounds plus 2 more. Gee, I should get pregnant all the time!

Maternity Clothes: I'm in pants but they're too big. I was pleased to learn that I am growing in the belly area but not everywhere else!

Gender: I am Team Green (still.)

Movement: Still too early for me to feel anything.

Sleep: I wake up every morning at 5 a.m. and I can't fall back asleep till about 6:30, only to be woken up by the alarm at 7. Oh well.

What I miss: Wearing cute clothes and the occasional martini.

Cravings: Grapes. I bought some but it's really not their season.

Symptoms: Even though it makes me sort've nervous, I am mostly symptom-free and feeling good. I definitely have heartburn, which my girlfriends tell me means by baby will have lots of hair (yay!)

Best Moment this week: Another week of a healthy pregnancy. I couldn't ask for more!


  1. I had a lot of heartburn too, and Lucy had very little hair. I thought for sure she'd have more because my SIL had lots of heartburn, and her daughter had a full head of hair!

  2. You look so adorably pregnant! Look at that bump. I love it!

    And if you can keep a secret (I'm not announcing on my blog or FB for awhile) but I've joined you in pregnancy land! Only about 4.5 weeks along, so I have a long way to go. I just couldn't keep it to myself anymore!
