15 Weeks: Our Little Orange!
How far along: 15 weeks
Net weight gain/loss: 2 lbs. even.
Maternity clothes: Nope, and proud of it :)
Stretch marks: Praying I can stay stretch-mark free again! (Fingers crossed!!!)
Belly button: still an innie
Sleep: I've been waking up around 5 or so, and then not being able to fall back asleep until right before I have to get up, causing me to feel reallllllly drowsy and out of sorts when the alarm/Ava goes off! Bleh. It's also getting a bit weirder to sleep on my stomach, which is a huge problem for me, because I can only sleep on my stomach.
Baby movement: As I lay falling asleep last night, squishing the wee little thing since I'm a stomach sleeper until it becomes impossible, I felt DEFINITE movement! It may have been a while since I did this whole pregnancy thing, but that is a feeling that you never forget!
Gender: 7 days until we know for sure!
Food cravings: Sour candy from my high school days - shock tarts, chewy Sprees, Sweetart Jelly Beans. And pasta. Seriously, this baby is a carbaholic.
Food aversions: Anything that smells bad at the time, red meat, too much sugar (ironically, given that I crave candy, but maybe the sour offsets it?)
What I miss: a flat stomach! And bummed I had to take Zofran again this morning. C'mon, second trimester relief and energy boost! I've been wanting to sleep ALL. DAY. LONG.
Looking forward to: finding out the gender! And hopefully nausea getting a bit better - it's been an issue a bit this week again...
Best moment this week: anytime I'm asleep. It was a rough week - I was sick, exhausted, working a ton, and just in general need of a break.
Milestones: baby can now move all of his/her joints and limbs!
