15 Week Survey

Week and day: 15 weeks

Belly Button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: On

Food cravings: Nothing in particular, it changes daily, but when I get a food on my mind, there is no stopping me from getting that. I have been typically wanting salty foods - McDonald's fries, Taco Bell, etc...

Food aversions: not anymore! coffee and chicken used to sound awful to me

Nausea: not anymore either - as long as I am able to eat every couple hours, if I wait to long and get an empty stomach I start to feel sick, but nothing a little food doesn't cure

Energy level: OK - I'm not as tired as I was in the first trimester, but I still want to pass out every night around 9pm (makes for a really great social life). As long as I get 8-8.5 hours of sleep a night, I'm ok, but I don't think I could survive on less.

Weight gain: About 12 lbs. - and trying to keep it low! Why does it feel like every person I talk to that has had kids says they gain 50-60 pounds?!? I'm doomed...

Mood: Up and Down (don't ask Ben this question... I'm sure he'd have a lot to say!) Most of the time I feel normal, but I definitely get into cranky moods and just want everyone to stop talking to me for a couple hours... is that so wrong?

Maternity clothes: Not too much, just longer shirts and a belly band (thanks erin!). Stocking up right now for when my belly really starts to grow (accidentally bought $150 worth of maternity clothes at Old Navy online yesterday) but haven't started wearing them yet.

Size of baby: An apple or a baseball, whichever is easy for you to visual (unfortunately, I think it's easy for Ben to visual a baseball, not only bc he loves the sport, but also bc I can't remember the last time he ate any fruit)

Changes of baby: moving all of her limbs, senses light, forming taste buds

Next appointment: October 20th - we find out the sex of the baby!!!

Other: Overall things are going well, I've been feeling a lot better. I'm really excited to find out the sex of the baby - I feel like it will make the baby part of this whole pregnancy thing seem more real. Right now I feel like we talk about the pregnancy all the time, but not so much the actual living creature that is going to live with us soon... lots to still think about!

  1. Great survey! I'm so glad the second trimester is going smoothly. I can't wait to hear if it's a girl or a boy! That will definitely make it feel more real. Then maybe you can pick a name and when can start calling it that...
