I can’t remember which baby it was, but I did one of these pregnancy questionnaires and LOVED it. Having the record (although I can’t google-fu it on the blog right now) was a fun way to look back at the pregnancy. I wanted to start it again, especially since this is our last baby!


How far along? 15 weeks as of Saturday! My due date is June 27, 2015

Total weight gain/loss: I think 3 – 5 pounds. It’s fluctuating a bit.

Maternity clothes? I’ve had to start breaking out maternity pants, in particular. Most of my maternity clothes were on loan to my SIL and are on their way back, so I anticipate lots more comfy pants coming my way! Although I am wearing a pair of post-pregnancy sized pants that I bought after Jude, and they’re too big for my 15 week belly right now. YES!

Stretch marks? No new ones, but I’ve noticed that my ones from Seth (which I got AFTER delivery from all the IV fluids, grrr) are back to looking red/purple instead of faded white like they were.

Sleep: I keep veering wildly between needing all the sleep and having all the insomnia. Today was not a good example … Jude was up twice in the middle of the night, and that made things not fun.

Best moment this week: See the next question …

Movement: I definitely felt little champagne-bubbles of movement this week! Apparently I have an anterior placenta this time around, which can make feeling movement more difficult. I’ve noticed that the bubbles are down low and around the sides when I feel them. And believe me … these sweet little bubbles are nothing like the horrible pain or regular type gas bubbles I’m all too familiar with right now! (Yay Zofran …)

Food cravings: Ramen. Seriously, kid? I had to get up at midnight the other night and make Ramen. Also: Whataburger burgers and fries, and ice cold Coca-Cola (small doses, of course).

Seriously, baby? Ramen noodles are today’s craving?

Anything making you queasy or sick: Geez, just about everything. I almost threw up looking at the crock pot of soup we’d made for dinner last night. I almost threw up in the break room at work this morning because of the horrible trash smell from people’s holiday fridge purge.

Have you started to show yet: Most definitely! It’s still in the “Is she fat or is she pregnant?” stage, but I’ve got a bump that wasn’t there a few months ago.

Gender prediction: I really think this baby is a girl.

Labor Signs: Nope! I think I’ll move this question off until the third trimester (God willing).

Belly Button in or out? In. I’ve never had an outie, just a super-flat belly button by the end.

Wedding rings on or off? On and loose.

Feeling all the Feels or Just Some of the Feels? I feel like my emotions went into overdrive this week. I cried at some commercial. I cried at a news report that wasn’t really worth crying about. I teared up reading a blog post. Ugh. I hate crying.

Weekly Wisdom: My monthly massage subscription + my great chiropractor may be the best thing ever for pregnancy.

Milestones: Getting back into some sort of fitness routine! The first trimester kicked my butt so hard in this area that I basically haven’t done anything since October. So I’m counting two walks and a yoga session in one week as a total win.

Pregnancy Fitness: Oh, okay. I should be consistent. Walked 2 miles and did 25 minutes of yoga during Week 14. My goal is to walk 6 miles and do yoga for 45 – 60 minutes each week.
