Pregnancy Update: 15 Weeks

Hey everyone, and happy Tuesday!  Hope your weekend was a good one.  Sorry for no update yesterday--I didn't take many pictures this weekend and thought it'd be a boring post.  We did have a good one, though, involving lots of football!  That seems to be the norm around here.

Guess what guys?  It's time for my first pregnancy update!  I'm using Annette's "questionnaire" she used for her pregnancy updates with a few additions of my own.  If you have other things you want to know, please ask in the comments!!

How far along? 15 weeks (and two days)

"Baby Bump" Progress:  I feel so awkward in these pictures! Haha!
Baby’s size? A navel orange--4.5 inches long and weighs around 2 to 3 ounces.  The baby can wiggle fingers and toes, suck its thumb, and can breathe! (according to What to Expect When You're Expecting)
Total weight gain/loss: Not sure...I actually lost 0.6 pounds at my last appointment (about a month ago), but I think I've gained a few since then!
Stretch marks? None as of now...I had a little scare thinking I had one already last week, but false alarm!  It was just a mark from my pants being too tight :)
Sleep: Luckily, sleep is not something I've had a problem with.  In fact, some days I'll take a nap after work and STILL be in bed around 9 or 9:30.  There are times I'll have to get up and go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, but other than that...no sleep problem!
Best moment this week:  Posting our announcement on Facebook and the blog and enjoying all the love and support we're getting!  It's been so amazing and uplifting!
Miss Anything?  I miss having coffee everyday.  I'll have some decaf or a half-caff Starbucks drink about twice a week, but I really do miss coffee!  Oh, and alcohol.  Don't judge me.  I miss my margaritas on Friday and my glass of wine, especially when we had fish this weekend.
Movement: Haven't felt anything yet, but we did get to see some movement during the first ultrasound a few weeks ago!  It was crazy and pretty cool.
Food cravings: I don't think I've had a true craving, but I am wanting sweets a lot more lately!  I also got a craving (I guess) for Wheat Thins in the store last week, whcih I haven't had in probably over a year.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Fortunately, not much lately.  A few bad smells (taking out the trash, cigarette smoke) have made me a little nauseous, as well as not eating regularly enough.  No sickness for a few weeks, thankfully!!
Gender: We won't find out until Baby Fish is born!  However, I think it's a boy (I had a vision of buying cute little boy's clothes).  But I've had numerous people tell me that they've had dreams and/or think I'm having a girl.  We'll see!
Labor Signs: None!
Symptoms: TIRED, headaches about once a week, being incredibly hungry then eating one or two bites and being "full"
Belly Button in or out? In, and probably will stay that way.  I have a deep innie belly button
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, and I don't think I've been moody.  You'll have to ask my husband about that.
Funny moments this week: I saw a former co-worker that I hadn't seen since she found out I was pregnant (I taught with her before taking the coaching job).  When I saw her and said I was already showing a little, she said to me "I noticed!"  It was pretty funny, but then later I started getting insecure about being fat...such an emotional swing of pregnant ladies :)
Looking forward to: having more energy.  People say that now that I'm in the 2nd trimester, I should be getting more energy.  Well, it can happen ANY DAY NOW!  I'm done with just working and sleeping all the time.

Exercise this week:  Thanks to my afternoon naps, exercise didn't really happen throughout the week.  I did go on a run on Saturday, though!  I felt good for the most part, even though I did need to do run/walk intervals to keep myself from getting my heartrate up too high.
Question for you: Anything else you need to know about?


  1. So exciting!!! I have so many friends who are pregnant right now (it's that time of life, I guess), so I love reading about how everyone is doing! Sounds like you got through the first trimester without too much morning sickness! To me that sounds like the worst part!

    1. Yeah, the few days I had it were pretty miserable. *Knock on wood* hopefully I am out of the woods with that!! So thankful I didn't have it every day!
