15 Weeks

How far along? 15 weeks
Size: Naval orange
Maternity clothes? Nothing new, just the same two pairs of pants - although I haven't really needed to wear them since I use my Belly Bands and I am starting to wear more dresses. Robert would tell you I have no butt so as soon as I sit down I get saggy drawers.
Nothing! This week was pretty uneventful.
Sleep: Still using my Snoogle and trying to stay on my side throughout the night. When I first got my Snoogle that was really easy, but now I wake up a few times throughout the night and realize I am on my back.

Best moment this week:
Monthly Paxti's date night with my main squeeze. Also, we had our 14 week appointment on Monday which was pretty quick. We heard a squirmy baby and a healthy heartbeat . The doctor mentioned the baby was hanging out over on the right side. Now I always wonder where he/she is in there!

He is in heaven
Worst moment of the week: It's been a pretty good week, so nothing to complain about :)
Have you told family and friends: Yes

Miss anything? Sleeping on my stomach

Movement: I don't think so. I felt an unfamiliar tap earlier in the week, but it's still really early so it's hard to know what it was.

Food cravings: None

Anything making you queasy or sick: Still struggling with spinach salads.

Have you started to show yet: Yep - it fluctuates though. Last Tuesday was the biggest I've seen it, but since then it's been pretty small. Here is 15 weeks versus 10 weeks - I can tell the baby is moving up.

15 weeks
10 weeks
My Gender prediction: I had a dream last night we were having an ultrasound and the tech announced it was a girl. I was all alone and had no one to celebrate with. So strange! Still feeling like its a boy though.
Labor signs: No
Belly Button in or out? Really in. Kind of creepy.

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Very happy

Looking forward to: We scheduled our anatomy scan, so we will confirm the baby's sex in the middle of March. Even though we want to keep things gender-neutral, I think it will make registering a little easier. The
gender neutral items still tend to lean either more boyish or girlish.
Baby A, size of a naval orange
What's the baby up to? 
Your baby's legs have grown longer than the arms and the body is now longer than the head. The bones and muscles are continuing to grow. He or she can move its arms and make a fist. You may begin to feel fluttering movements as baby kicks, twists and turns (!!). 
The ears are nearly in position, and the three tiny bones in his middle ear have begun to harden. By the end of the week, the roof of your baby's mouth will be completely formed. The fetus has an adult's taste buds and may be able to savor the mother's meals (hope he/she likes green juice).


  1. Love to read the updates of your little one and so glad Mom & Dad are feeling fine!

  2. Cute bump :) can't wait to see you & Baby A next weekend!!

  3. Thank you for this little snap shot into your lives, I'm so excited for you and Roberts
