15 Weeks

Today, baby is the size of an orange. His legs out measure his arms, and he is moving around freely. I still can't feel any of these movements, but I know that he is moving a lot. When I used the home doppler this week, I would get the heartbeat for a moment, and then it was gone, and then I had it and then it was gone. This little one is causing trouble for Mom already :o)


I am feeling really good. My energy has almost completely returned, and my food aversions are all but gone. This morning while looking in the mirror, I could definitely tell I was pregnant. I don't think anyone else would know, though. They might just think I have had a few too many beers! I can feel my insides creeping up towards my ribs, and the small inconveniences of pregnancy are definitely rearing their head. Mostly, I am so excited to be moving deep into the 2nd trimester. Pretty soon I will feel this baby move, and in a few more weeks I will be undeniably pregnant to anyone who sees me. These are all things I look forward to!!

In other news, you all know how much of an OCD/planner that I am. Well, I have to admit something. We have the travel system, the furniture, the crib, the cloth diaper stash (yes, we are cloth diapering), and the nursery is almost cleared out. Elizabeth and I are going to work on sprucing up the antique furniture I found on Craigslist, and then we will paint the room. This pregnancy is really flying by, and I am excited to relax in my 3rd trimester. Or at least that is my reasoning for having all of this done so soon!! I think the excitement has really set in, and the notion that this pregnancy is real is slowly taking a hold of me. I can't wait to meet this little one! 25 more weeks to go!

You should be feeling little taps any day now! That was the most exciting thing for me!

We need a belly pic :)

Although I'm keeping myself anonymous, you know me. I promise! I just wanted to say I understand your excitement! I'm not even pregnant yet but we know the furniture we'll have in the nursery, the bedding, how it will be painted, ect. I'm a big planner too. :) How exciting for you! I'm sure that first little kick that you can feel will be a huge rush. It's great that you're feeling so good.
