15 Weeks

I found this on someone else's blog, but I thought it would be a nice update and something to look back on as I go through this pregnancy journey.

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 15 weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss: -15 due to morning sicknessness
Maternity Clothes: I have bought some, but don't have a need for them yet.
Best Moment this week: Hearing baby Marshall's heartbeat!! Four weeks is so long to go without hearing it!!
Gender: We have the opportunity to find out in about 4 1/2 weeks, but we're not going to.
Movement: None yet.
Food Craving: In the last few weeks I've craved Bob Evans Sausage Biscuits. Wierd I know, but it's all I ate for about a week. Lately, I haven't had many cravings.
What I miss: Sleeping through the night!
Sleep: I fall asleep quickly (which is a change for me) and sleep well until about 3am, but then I can't go back to sleep til about 6 or 7am.
What I am looking forward to: Feeling better and getting som energy back! I'm also looking forward to my next appointment.
Belly Button: In.
Symptoms: Just Tired! Still getting sick every now and then, but it's getting better.
Doctor's Update: My doctor said at my last appointment that I look great (big change from the last time she saw me when I was fighting back sickness in her office) and that I'm measuring just right and the heartbeat is right on track! Everything is great!

News!!

Well if you haven't seen it yet on facebook or gotten an email from me, you'll know now! Mike and I are expecting our first child!! We couldn't be happier. I'm 15 weeks along and due September 16th. The first trimester I dealt with ALOT of morning sickness, but it's not so bad now that I'm in the second trimester. Hopefully all the "joys" of the second trimester are true and I start to regain some energy too!

Please keep us in your prayers as we begin this journey in our lives and we prepare for our little one to arrive!
