15 weeks

I was 15 weeks on Monday, and as I said last week it is flying by!  I am sure it is partly due to the fact that I am feeling so much better.  This past weekend we had some friends come in town and we were non stop all weekend and it definitely took a toll on this body.  I told Luke when I woke up Sunday morning that I felt like I had been beaten.  My whole body ached like I had been to boot camp the day before.  We walked a ton so I am sure that had something to do with it, not to mention this lady was up way past her bedtime both nights.

Total Weight Gain: I go to the Dr next Thursday so I will know for sure.




Changes From Last Week: I can drink water, let me give you a little back story on this.  I love water, and before I was pregnant I would drink 6-8 bottles a day.   Well until this week I have not been able to drink it because it made me so sick.  The only thing I could handle was ginger ale or sprite.  It may not seem like a big deal, but I want to be as healthy as possible and I have hated not being able to drink water.  I have my one cup of coffee in the morning (not only to function, but to cut down on the headaches), and water for the rest of the day.



Sleep: I have always slept on my back, so I was worried sleeping on my side would be hard.  I have started sleeping on my side this week, and it doesn't seem to bother me.  Now that I am drinking so much water I am getting up in the night to go to the bathroom more often.



Food Cravings: Anything salty.  I have also been loving pancakes, and I am pretty sure its a pregnancy thing because I don't even like pancakes.


Food Aversions: I used to cook everything with turkey meat, and now I cannot even stomach the thought of it.



Movement: Nothing yet.



Gender: This week is the first time I have gotten really antsy wanting to know what I am having.  I have not really thought about it or cared, but I am getting where I really want to know.  According to wives's tales its a boy, but who knows.


What I miss: sushi


Questions for other moms: did you pick out names before you found out or after?  We have tossed around a few ideas, but I just think it would be easier to see what we are having and then decide instead of stressing over two names.


What I am looking forward to: One of my best friends couples shower is this weekend and I am excited to see og my friends, since I have not seen most of them since I have been pregnant.


Best Moment of the week: Being able to get outside and walk, and being able to cook again.  I love cooking and I have been to sick to handle the smells so its nice to get back in my kitchen.


I am going to apologize beforehand for the picture this week.  As we were running out the door to meet our friends I asked Luke to take a picture of me for my blog, and this is what we ended up with......

I promise to have a better photographer for next week.
