15 weeks- July 14

I am getting better at posting these closer to my actual week! :) It is the pictures that are stallling me! :) sometimes it just doesn't want to upload pictures for me.

I sometimes still can't even believe I really am pregnant! I worry what if this really isn't happening? Of course, I am pulled back into reality when I see my beautiful baby on our ultrasound picture hanging on our fridge and when I go to the doctor and hear our baby's beautiful heartbeat! This is so AMAZING. I feel so incredibly blessed to be experiencing this! And the further along I get the more in awe I am!! I just can't freakin' believe I am pregnant!! brings tears to my eyes!

14 weeks 6 days- close enough to 15 weeks! :) Plus I am wearing a tight shirt so you can see it better! :)

Me today 15 weeks 5 days - at work in the bathroom! :)

How far along: 15 weeks! WOW! So far this is flying by! I love it!
Total weight gain: 6.4 lbs
Maternity clothes:  wearing the belly band! and my pants are getting more uncomfortable.
Sleep: I could NOT get comfortable for the life of me the entire week! After 7 days of just feeling exhausted I discovered pillows. They help me get comfortable! woot woot!
Best moment of the week:   spending the week with my little sister and big sister!
Food cravings: none really this week
Food aversions: The thought of Juicing still makes me a little queasy but it has really eased up a lot!
Symptoms: growing pains, and watching my pants not fit anymore and my belly poke out more, other than that I am feeling great!
boobs sore- still there, but not as bad
cramps- not as much, a llittle more stretching I feel like.
tiredness- pretty much where I was pre pregnancy
irritability- back to normal. :)

 burning muscle pain in upper abdomen- all gone!
Movement: none yet! But I am getting really excited for it!

What I miss: nothing at the moment! LOVE LOVE LOVE knowing there is a little baby in my belly!! It is just the most amazing thing ever!!!! I also am loving the start of my baby bump!
Next appt: July 25th! :) With my new midwife!

How big is baby: 

Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. (
