15 Weeks :)

Yay!  Another week down :)

Thanks to a lovely combination of zofran, zantac and unisom, I seem to be doing pretty well with the morning sickness.  I've also cut down my McDonalds breakfast habit... ;)

This past week I've noticed a huge exhaustion come over me.  All I want to do is sleep, sleep and sleep.  I think its because Henry has been sick since Friday... waking up in the middle of the night over and over again is really taking its toll.  But the bub's been on antibiotics for 3 days now... so things should be getting way better, soon.

Disney is a week from TODAY!  WOW! :)  I can't believe it!  It feels like we've been saving up and planning forever for this trip!  We are ALL so excited.  Ryan comes home from work every day saying, "I can't WAIT to be out of here."  I think we're all over the weather.

My size is growing... my weight is still the exact same, but I feel everything filling out.  It can only be a matter of time before the scale jumps up by 10 lbs. and then 20, and then 30... etc.

Here is what I look like this week...



And here is the approximate size of the lobster :)






I keep thinking I'm feeling little pokes and wiggles. And with this being my 3rd pregnancy, you'd think I'd know exactly what it feels like. I think I normally start to feel the baby around 18 weeks on a regular basis... I'm excited for that! :)



Ohhh and 4/5 more weeks until we find out what this bub is!  I go back and forth all the time.  Some days I am 99% sure its a girl, the next day, I'm positive its a boy.  Who knows... :)  I actually was trying to talk Ryan into NOT  finding out at 20 weeks.  When I went in a couple of weeks ago for my ultrasound, I was sure the tech would be able to take a guess at the gender... but she didn't even look.  And I walked out feeling... fine!  It was actually kind of fun to go back home and play the guessing game again.  Ryan was pretty adament that he wants to find out though... funny, because I thought he'd be the one saying "lets wait" and I'd be the one dying to know.  I'm still dropping the hint that I'd like to wait and find out... but he wants to be "prepared."  haha :)  We'll see I guess!
 
Happy Tuesday :)

You may be surprised. With Savannah, I lost weight and stayed the same through almost the whole pregnancy, and then in the last month I gained 7 lbs! I was eating ice cream every night and trying to gain, but I had enough fat on my body that the baby was taking that....it was NICE!
