15 Weeks!

15 Week Summary

How am I feeling?
I feel great most days, although yesterday I felt very dizzy and tired. Thank goodness I woke up feeling better today!


How do I look? I feel just fat right now! Here's my 15 week picture:




Milestones
I'm hoping to feel the baby kick soon- the baby books say possibly in the next couple of weeks!

What am I craving?
Today all I wanted was soup- of course on one of the hottest days of the year!

Aversions?
Mexican food, anything with a strong scent.

What do I miss?
A beer now and then!

What am I looking forward to?
Looking pregnant!

Weight gain 4.0 lbs.

Discovery of the week?

I better buy some more maternity shirts or I may never have ANYTHING to wear!

I have an ultrasound tomorrow for my fetal growth study participation. Maybe we'll get another movie!

Video Update!

So I think I mentioned before that I agreed to this research study. The study is to re-evaluate the Fetal Growth Charts. They haven't been updated in 30 years! 3,000 women across the country are participating. The study gets you 6 extra FREE ultrasounds. I was tempted to say yes, but then when they told me that they pay you to come, it was a no brainer! Sure! Here are the videos they took from today's visit!

Well, I'm just about out of the first trimester!!!

13w Summary

How am I feeling?
I feel pretty good, although I was super dehydrated yesterday!


How do I look? Clothes are starting to get tight.... here's the 13 week picture:




Milestones
First real craving this last week- CHOCOLATE milk! I must need the Calcium!

What am I craving?
See above!

Aversions?
Ummm.... "heavy" foods.... I don't know if I can eat a real dinner yet.

What do I miss?
Fitting in anything in my closet! I just want to look pregnant at this point (okay not huge, but big enough that I don't need to explain myself!)

What am I looking forward to?
Feeling the baby move!

Weight gain 2 lbs so far.... looks like WAY more than that!

Discovery of the week?

I can't do it all anymore.... I've got to rely on other to help.... how did that take 25 years to learn?
