15 weeks

15 weeks orange How far along? 15 weeks 
Total weight gain: lost 5lbs since last appointment

Maternity clothes? still only my jeans, but i did order some leggings and some shirts from h&m this week 

Stretch marks? just the one! 

Sleep: wonderful

Best moment this week: hearing baby’s heartbeat again! (156-166) and getting to know our doctor a little more at our appointment. we also took a road trip to carrollton, il to see my college bestie and her family. it was great practice being around her two little boys! i miss them so much already 🙁 

Miss Anything? not really missing anything this week!

Movement: none yet

Food cravings: mt. dew seems to be on my mind a lot. but i think it’s just because it’s something other then water, and seems rebellious to drink (like beer used to be for me) 

Anything making you queasy or sick: when i look at recipes, beef is looking very unappetizing 

Gender: not sure, but still everyone has said BOY

Labor Signs: none

Symptoms: all the terrible ones are gone! energy is back in full force! which is so great because it’s warming up for walks outside

Belly Button in or out? in 

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or Moody most of the time: happy!

Looking forward to: Easter goodies and family this weekend! seems like my mom’s side of the family is bringing something ‘cute’ and yummy to eat! wish it was going to be a lot warmer so i could get out some of my new spring dresses.

the owl cookie jar was a gift | the candle i just got in the mail from my girlfriend linley | keurig was a shower gift from my mom | cutting board is from tj maxx | lemons are from the dollar store | cheese dome is from the depot (second hand store) | the pitcher (the one i’m showing is the small ona pitcher, no longer available) is from crate and barrel | the wild flower bunch is wedding rental inventory | the berry dish was a gift and it is holding iced tea k-cups | and the little copper dish is from the depot also (holding my prenatal vitamins) spring coffee 2

i love the freshness it creates in our kitchen now. spring coffee 3

this really makes me want to grab a glass and make some iced tea! which is my new jam since i’ve been pregnant, nick said he’s never seen me drink so much tea! spring coffee 4
