15 Weeks

I'm 15 weeks along!  Only 9 more days until we find out if our little Mango is a boy or a girl!!!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: Baby is the size of an orange!

Total Weight Gain: Gained 2.5 lbs (I lost half a pound...I'm not sure how considering that I eat ALL DAY LONG)

Belly Growth: 6 inches  (WOW)  I know the belly growth is necessary, but it's difficult for me to watch my body change like this.  I'm trying to embrace it.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but I am IN LOVE with the bella band.  Seriously in love.  From this day forward, I will give this is to every friend I have when they tell me they are expecting.  It allows me to wear my pants, but unbuttoned.  I know it sounds weird, and hubby thinks it is the most hilarious thing ever - but it's worth its weight in gold to me right now.  I'm ordering another one from amazon - here's the link if you

are interested.
Amon Maternity Behold Belly Band, M (Pre-pregnancy Size 6-8), Black
Gender: We find out the day before Thanksgiving!  We decided to have our gender reveal party on December 4th.  My parents are going to come in town and everything - I just can't wait!

Movement: Not yet, but I'm so excited to feel the baby!  Sometimes I wonder if it's okay in there :)

Sleep: I just started sleeping all the way through the night.  And, I am less tired, so I only need about 7 1/2 hours again, which is wonderful.

Symptoms: Nothing really!  My galbladder has been hurting a little after I eat, and I am hungry all of the time, but just for a few bites of food, never really a full meal.  I consider myself very fortunate that I haven't been sick at all!

What I Miss: Coffee, Wine, Diet Cokes...and a cold beer during College Football Saturdays!

Cravings: Nothing really odd or special this week.  Although, my friend Lindsey brought some lovely Paula Dean pumpkin bars into my life, and I cannot.stop.eating.them.  I asked her for the recipie, I'll share it when she sends it.  They are to die for!

Emotions: Not too terrible this week.  I had a slight episode where I got worried about our marriage and how it would do through all the big changes coming our way, but after a few tears and some reassurance, I felt much better.  I'm not totally crazy just yet : )
