15 weeks

Whoa! I'm already 15 weeks pregnant. That just seems a little unreal. Boo is already the size of an apple.

Things are progressing pretty well -- as far as I'm aware. It's been several weeks since my last appointment. I have another one coming up in 1 1/2 weeks.

I think I'm done with the nasty first trimester symptoms. Bloating. Nausea. The whole bloating phenomenon caught me by complete surprise. I really think my stomach was bigger at the end of the day during weeks 8 - 10 than it is now. The puke count is at 4. I think that's pretty good, considering some people puke several times a day. My skin is improving. The zits and acne seem to be clearing up. Thank God! My symptoms weren't too extreme -- but definitely enough to find comfort in that things must be developing within.

I'm still pretty sleepy. I'm sure that part of this is just in my head -- I love sleep and pregnancy is the perfect excuse for being sleepy. Although some people at work have noticed that I have a bit more energy, so that's good.

Here's a fun fact. Someone has already told me I waddle like a pregnant woman. Ah! Isn't that not supposed to happen until you're huge.

For the most part, I haven't had too much to worry about. I'm thirsty a lot. So I drink a lot. But I still don't drink the total amount of water one is supposed to consume when pregnant. So sometimes, like when I wake up in the morning and it's been a while since I've had a lot of water, I worry that Boo is going to suffocate from lack of amniotic fluid. I'm pretty sure that's not happening, so I don't even know why that worry comes across my mind. I don't even know if that is possible!

That's pretty much all I have for a baby update. Dave and I went to a wedding this weekend, so we actually have a couple of pictures. But I'm lazy and haven't uploaded the pics yet. And I'm tired, so it's not happening tonight. Maybe Dave will do it for me...hint. hint.



  1. Upload pics!!!! I wanna see the flower pics too :) 15 weeks already huh? Yay...almost half way there :)

  2. That's totally normal to worry like that. Honestly, I think it's just part of being pregnant and being a mother. I had to stop going on the internet to curb my fears.
    I going to make a prediction that you are having a girl. Let's see if I'm right. Are you going to find out? If so, are you going to share? Just wondering how long I need to wait to see if I'm right.

  3. Yep, we're going to find out. Sometime in the beginning of June. We're actually rescheduling that appointment, so I don't know exactly when it is. And yes, we're going to share that news with everyone...probably not the name though. Speaking of which, I should put up a poll for people to record their guesses.

    I haven't yet searched the internet to see if my fear is even a possibility. I'm just assuming it's a fairly irrational fear.


What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear.
