baby, what?!

Well, I haven't blogged in, um, forever. Life just got so busy and it was the last thing on my priority list. So I'm back. At least once a week. Because...


And I want to remember this time in our lives.

I've been horrible about it so far. I think it's been hard to accept this is real. Not because I don't want it to be, but because it's just such a surreal experience.

So now that I'm 15 weeks, I'm finally ready to start living in the moment.

That was my belly a few days ago. Kinda nuts there's something INSIDE me making my body look different! I've seen this done on a ton of blogs and really like looking through it on theirs so I figured I'd do the same on mine...

(This is for last week. I'll probably do them on the last day of the week every week from now on!)

How far along? 14 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 1. I feel like I need to gain more, but I'm just letting my body do it's thang right now. I'm not restricting calories or eating any differently than I normally do so I figure it knows what it's doing!

Maternity clothes? Yep. I've been using the hairband trick on my jeans since probably about week 9. Buttons just dug in and made the already angry ligaments around baby that much angrier. I'm a lot happier in maternity jeans or a dress.

Stretch marks? Nope. Mom didn't get any so I'm praying what I hear about it being genetic is true. I mean, that won't stop me from getting some good cream. It can't hurt!

Sleep: Sleeping is pretty good. I get pretty uncomfortable at night which makes me wake up easily, but it's not horrible.

Best moment this week: Waking up and my bump still being there. Up until this week it was always totally flat in the morning and only came out to play at night after a days worth of food. Now I know it's really little baby making it pooch out and not just bloat!

Have you told family and friends: Yes!

Miss Anything? Sleeping on my back. I know technically I could still do it, but I figure it's better to break myself of the habit now rather than later when it actually matters. Oh, and not thinking about what I'm eating and if it's on the good or bad list during pregnancy.

Movement: Not yet. I'm looking forward to it though!

Food cravings: Milk. Chocolate, specifically. And orange juice sounds reeeeaaallllly good. No real food cravings though. Maybe sushi? But I'm a wimp and get chicken sushi so I can still fulfill that craving!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope! I think I'm officially past that point.

Have you started to show yet: Just a small pooch. Nothing to write home about, but enough for me to notice.

Gender prediction: I honestly think girl, but I'm not totally sure. We'll go in a couple weeks to find out!

Labor Signs: Nope

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!

Looking forward to: Finding out what this little baby is! And then feeling it move around!


  1. Congratulations!!! You are going to love this time in your life! I so wish I would have been a blogger when I was pregnant. It would have made taking a weekly picture a priorty! Definitely do it every week! Cant wait to follow your pregnancy journey.

    Oh and I used a phenomenal cream while I was pregnant. I do not have a single stretch mark and my mom got them horribly. Loved it and actually started selling the products because of how awesome it was. Let me know if you are interested.

    1. Thanks, Alexis! We're SO excited for this journey that ends with a sweet little baby!

      My friend told me about some bio oil something that I was going to try out, but if I'm not liking that I'll definitely let you know! :)

    2. Yes I have heard of that as well and have heard great things about it!
