15 Weeks Bumpdate - The First One

I thought I would end the 2014 year with a bang and do my first bumpdate. I honestly have always loved reading other’s weekly updates and it’s a little surreal doing my own. I think this will be a great way to keep family and friends in the loop, as well as a way to document these special memories for later. Thank you to everyone for the well wishes, Andy and I could not be happier about our newest addition.

How Far Along? 15 weeks

Size of Baby: A navel orange (4.0 inches)

Gender: I have no idea, but we find out next week!!!!! I’m a little nervous to find out so early mostly because I’m scared they will tell me one thing and it’ll be wrong. Does anyone else think like this, or am I crazy?

Maternity Clothes: I just firmed up a shopping date with my mom to go pick up some maternity clothes. My pants situation is getting a little dire; I’m down to two pairs of pants that still fit.
Nursery: Still a guest room, but I’m starting to get antsy to at least get a new paint color on the wall.

Movement: Nothing yet. I read that I could feel something anywhere between 14 to 22 weeks. I’m really hoping it won’t take that long.

Symptoms: I had a couple headaches this week. Not sure what is causing them, could be the dramatic weather changes, fatigue, or just pregnancy in general.

Sleep: I can officially no longer sleep on my stomach, which is a hard adjustment. I think a body pillow purchase will be in order by the end of the week. Snoogle here I come.

Cravings:  My salty tooth is still around however not as strong as last week. While I like the taste of melted cheese the thought of it grosses me out. The Velveeta commercials send me into fits.  

What I Miss: We had some friends over to watch South Carolina play in the Bowl game on Saturday and then watched a movie after. I had to head to bed halfway through because I was exhausted. I’m waiting patiently for the second trimester energy boost.

Best Moment This Week: Christmas at home with the family and receiving our first couple  of baby gifts of books and onesies.

Looking Forward To: I’m so excited about our 16 week appointment next week. I’m always thrilled to see how Baby S is developing and hopefully the baby’s gender will be very obvious.
