Pregnancy Update: 15 Weeks

How far along: 15 Weeks, about 25 to go.

Showing: Yes. My belly seems to change shape every day though. Some days it feels more like I just have a gut and other days it feels like a baby bump.

Weight Gain: According to my scale at home, about three pounds.

Maternity Clothes: Yes. I definitely look more pregnant in some of my maternity tops.

Food I'm Eating/Craving: I find myself wanting food with curry, particularly Thai inspired dishes. I even had a dream about how to use some left over curried yogurt that my sister made, and executed the recipe the next day. It was tasty. I also find myself craving mango, sour gummy candy, and creme brulee or vanilla pudding. My birthday is Friday, so I'm hoping certain family members help me out with some of these cravings! Oh, I also ran out and bought fudgsicles at the beginning of the week.

Things that Make me Sick: Most of the time since my last post has been great. I only threw up three or four times all week and felt great all weekend. Today however (I'm technically 15wks and 3 days today) I had thrown up twice by 9:30 and was feeling like I would again. Sigh. I just read an article on Fit Pregnancy though that said that research shows that women with more morning sickness may be less likely to miscarry and may have children with higher IQs. Go figure.
Other symptoms: Still some round ligament pain and feeling hot all the time. Still some mild acne. Still can't wait to take my bra off because I ache. I'm also occasionally peeing myself when I cough or vomit. Nobody tells you about that one.

Pregnancy Brain: Just keep forgetting what I was about to say.

Miss anything? Not feeling sick.

Best moment: My students had their spring program this week, and it was awesome! I made a camel costume for it, and I was fairly pleased with how it turned out. 

Movement: I'm not 100% sure, but I think I've felt the baby move. It could be just gas, but it feels a little different.

Gender: Hoping to find out for sure in two weeks.

Happy or moody most of the time?: Definitely more moody this week, and it's weird. I actually had two really bad nights. The one night I was playing cards with my mom, a friend, and my grandparents, and I was suddenly so anxious, irritable, and weepy all at the same time that I had to quit the game and rush home. It almost felt like an anxiety attack. I was fidgety and snippy and left in tears. But as soon as I got home I felt fine. Two nights later though, I kind of lost it on Steve for a little thing, and ended up crying pretty hard. He was leaving for work (he worked overnight for two nights, and I always hate when he has to do that because I barely see him) and when I tried to tell him why I was upset, I just burst into tears. I ended up sobbing "I don't know why I'm crying; you should just leave and ignore me!" Then I cried for like another hour which was made worse by that commercial with the soldiers coming home and surprising their kids.

  1. looking good, Mama! :) I'm sorry I forgot to tell you about the peeing thing…expect that even after the baby comes! haha! The last month was the worst for me, Andrew would make me laugh just to see if he could make me have an accident, he thought it was hilarious! my scariest "thing they never told me" was losing my mucus plug…ask your doctor about that, or I'll give you the details! ;)
