15 Weeks

Thursday, August 28, 2014
How far along? 15 weeks
Total weight gain/loss:  I've gained about a pound and a half from last week!  Still down about 2 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight.  I'm less concerned about this now because I'm starting to put on a little weight and I'm sure lots more will come!
Maternity clothes: Loving my maternity pants!  I just keep going through my closet and pulling stuff out that I know won't fit anymore.  I'm sure this will be a learning process.
Best moment this week: Definitely seeing our sweet little baby on the ultrasound!  We were hoping that we could find out the gender, but baby Purcell was crossing their legs or moving all over the place and wouldn't hold still.  We even saw the baby open and close their mouth!  They even still had their cute little hand right by the side of their face!  They must really like that.  Ultrasounds are funny.  Our doctor showed us a picture of the baby's face and said, "What do you think? Does it look like a girl or a boy?"  I said, "It kind of looks like an alien…" ha!  Sorry baby.  We still think you're cute and we know you won't look like an alien when you get here, but ultrasounds just don't capture the most flattering portraits.
Movement: The baby was jumping, head bobbing and doing flips in the ultrasound!  Hopefully we aren't in for a hyper child. ;)  I can't wait to feel our sweet baby moving.
Waist diameter: 26.75 inches at waist, 31 inches at belly button
Food cravings/Aversions: I'm still having an aversion to meat and I'm obsessed with lemon water.  Ice cream, cookies, and other sweet things rarely sound good to me these days which is strange since I used to have cookies and milk every single night.
Labor signs: Thankfully, none.
Belly button in or out?  It's definitely too early for this question unless you were born with an outie belly button.
What I miss: NOTHING!  I'm just so grateful for this little miracle growing inside.  Though, I did get a little sad that the baby had grown to the point where we couldn't see the entire baby in one ultrasound image!  I'm glad the baby is growing healthy and strong, but our little one is growing up too fast already!
What I am looking forward to: I'm excited to see if we are having a boy or a girl on our next ultrasound in a few weeks!  Hopefully the baby will cooperate next time.  :)
Milestones:  15 weeks!  Baby is about 4 inches inches now!
Realization of the week: We are just so, so blessed.  It's crazy to think that there is a little person inside of me moving around and stuff!  We are so excited and in love already.
Other fun things: Here are a couple video clips from the ultrasound.  In the first one you can see the baby looks like they are jumping around or have the hiccups or something.  In the second one you can see the baby opening their mouth, you can see their cute little arm up by their face, and you can hear their heartbeat.

I loved lemon water when I was pregnant. Especially when I was nauseous. I'm glad you're starting to put on weight. I'm guessing it's a boy.
