15 weeks


How far along? 15 weeks 

Maternity clothes? yep

Stretch marks? no

Sleep: pretty good, i almost make it til the alarm goes off without waking up!

Best moment this week: that long weekend was quite nice

Miss anything? runny eggs

Movement: well, i'm on the fence but yesterday and the night before i felt some small bubbly business that i couldn't decide what it might be ... after conversing with mom friends, they all agreed that might be baby movements. i guess if they keep happening, that means it's the baby! ;) 

Food cravings: same ... nothing crazy but if i get an idea in my head of something that sounds delicious, i must have it.

Anything making you queasy or sick: same... random things. sometimes grilling beef. and the smell of some colognes/perfumes. and spaghetti sauce gives me heartburn. scrambled eggs are so unappealing (probably because i only want over easy, sigh.) and don't taste good.

Gender: july 21 (less than two weeks!) :)

Labor signs: it's way too early for this question.

Symptoms: a growing belly and baby 

Belly button in or out? in

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or moody most of the time: depends on who you ask ;) 

Blood sugar: pretty good! i'm trying to really stay on top of it of course. i finally got a dexcom sensor after being without it for a week, so i feel much better. ESPECIALLY at night when i'm sleeping.

Looking forward to: knowing if we're having a boy or girl!
