15 Weeks

Baby is the size of an AVOCADO!  Yum...guacamole one of my favorite things to eat along with chips and salsa.  Nick often wonders if I was really born in the US and not Mexico. 

How far along: 15 weeks
Sickness: Just starting to get out of the morning AND evening nausea. 
Maternity clothes: Not yet, can't do up pants so rocking the rubber band trick
Stretch Marks: None that I can see
Sleep: I am sleeping pretty good.  I have had a couple night where I wake up and have a hard time falling back to sleep but mostly I am sleeping through the night.  I bought a body pillow at Target 2 weeks ago and I love it!
Movement: I haven't felt any movement.  They say starting at 16 weeks is when you may be able to feel the baby move.
Food Cravings: No food cravings at all!  Food just doesn't sound very good.  I can stomach breads, pastas, soups, and fruit.  Meat is still pretty iffy and vegetables don't sound all that great.  In fact just thinking of making a green smoothie makes me dry heave.  Hopefully in the next few weeks I will be back to having one in the morning.

SURPRISE...we're pregnant!

Nick and I decided it was time to start a little family...well more me than we decided June would be the time and low and behold we are pregnant and due March 18, 2013!  

Nick seemed a little nervous at first but quickly got over it when he started announcing our pregnancy at 7 weeks TO THE WORLD!  

We had our 1st doctor appointment August 16th with Dr. McCulloch at the Budge Clinic.  She is very nice and gave us our first ultrasound and we heard the heartbeat.  The baby looks like a little peanut! 

I am going to track my pregnancy week by week and document the changes along with cravings, sickness, etc.
