15 weeks already?!?

How far along:  15 weeks

Baby Size: A baseball or a naval orange.

Weight:  123.6.  I actually lost weight this last week.  I'm up less than a pound total.  I'm developing some sort of bump.  It's not a cute baby bump, but it's rounding out and I notice it is bigger in the evening.


  • I'm starting to get what I think is round ligament pain in my lower stomach area. 
  • Sleep is horrible still (see below)
  • Nausea hasn't gone away.  It's better, but sometimes I just get hit with it and have to go lay down right away. 

Maternity Clothes: I washed a pair or jeans and top that were given to me. I think I will be wearing them soon.

Sleep:   Horrible. Last night I got an almost 3 hour stretch for the first time in a week and a half.  I was still up 5 times.  Usually I'm up at least 6 times a night and until last night I haven't even slept a 2 hour stretch in the last week and a half.

Cravings/Food Aversions:   I really wanted pizza last weekend.  I tried calling places Friday for lunch and nothing was open yet.  I cried.  Then I ate waffles which were not the same thing at all.  Rob's grandparents took us out for dinner that night and I got my pizza at the restaurant   I ate a piece and a half and was done and now I don't want it again.  

I stole a few sips of Rob's Mt.Dew Sunday.  I really miss pop that has caffeine, like diet coke etc..  I cut out caffeine even before getting pregnant, but I want it now.  That was the first time I have had it (and I only took 2 small sips) since Christmas time.

Belly Button:  In

Rings on or off: On

Gender: Not sure yet, 3 more weeks!

Name: Rob has been saying all along that we have the names chosen, but this week he started to waver on the girl name.  He really likes the nickname and I really like the full version.   I don't really want to think about it until after we find out what the sex is since it may not even be an issue. 

I think we are good on the boy name. 

Movement: Not yet.  I think it's to early, and I'm not sure I would know if I felt it anyway.

Best moment: Baby getting it's first gift (End of this post)

Looking forward to:  My sister is due at the end of this month and I can't wait to meet my new nephew and get baby snuggles.

What I miss:  Soda & sleep

Labor signs: Nope, Nothing for at least 20 weeks. 

Appointments: Next week is my 16 week checkup, and in 3 weeks the anatomy scan.  I can't wait for Rob to see the baby again.  He has seen the pictures from 8 and 12 weeks, but hasn't actually seen the baby via ultrasound since 6 weeks. 

Misc. Rob got the wallpaper border up in the baby's room.  I think it's to early to do things, because then I know I will want to redo them if we have all this time, but when I walk by and see it up, it makes me smile.

Rob & I as newborns.  


  1. Yay for your will power on giving up caffeine. I failed miserably at that while pregnant, now, before pregnancy haha. I hope the next three weeks fly by for you. I remember going nuts the last couple of weeks before my anatomy scan. I am such a planner and needed to know if the baby was a boy or girl.
    Just stopping by from Tuesday Baby. Thanks for linking up.

    1. I don't think I'll make it to the end of this pregnancy without drinking more than a few sips of soda. I'm sure I could do it, but I don't think I want to. I initially didn't want to find out the sex of the baby, but my husband really wanted to, so I said okay, and now I'm really excited about it.
