15 Weeks

Monday, April 15, 2013

Now that I am 15 weeks, I am just starting to show a tad. Well, more like I look like I've gained weight in my mid-section and have maybe eaten one too many personalized pizzas or something. It's not cute, but it's happening! I am still feeling great. I have learned that as long as I stick to my workout schedule, then I feel awesome. If I don't, then I am extra tired, lazy, and just bleh. I try to get myself to the gym 4-5 times a week. I am obsessed with this bodypump class - it's like a weight training class. I just can't get enough of it! I am also doing cycling, which I love as well. So I pretty much just switch off those classes during the week and then one day I'll go running or for a longer walk. I have started to get lower back cramps when I walk or stand for too long, so I have been slacking with this each week. 
NEXT week we find out the gender! (if baby cooperates) So crazy we will already know! My doc said that she will definitely be able to tell by then, especially because she thinks that I am measuring a little earlier than expected...but we will see! Also, weird but I guess it's normal is some days I feel huge and others I don't feel pregnant at all. The culprit of this all - bloating. I feel like every couple days I get super bloated and look completely pregnant and I kind of get excited and ask Jason a million times "Do I look pregnant now?!" And then I'll wake up and it's gone. Kind of weird, but normal I guess. Anyone else have this happen to them? Also, I feel full all day long. I am almost never hungry, but I make myself eat because I know I should. It's not that I am nauseous or have no appetite. Could be the bloating that is making me feel like this is my guess.
I took this last weekend when I was 14 weeks and baby was the size of a large naval orange. (Don't mind my outfit..this was in between general conference sessions)
This week baby is the size of an avocado! Mmm..that sounds good right now:)


  1. I totally know what you mean! I did not enjoy the in between phase where I just felt fat and didn't look pregnant. except for I was opposite and felt like I could eat everything in sight from week 12-16!! I would ask beau everyday if I looked pregnant finally and would pick out clothes that I thought made me look pregnant rather then just a little chubby :)

  2. This is so exciting. I love thinking about the little babe being the size of an orange. I like the visual. Can't wait to find out pink or blue???
