15 Weeks - Belly Shot Chronicles




Another week gone by, and we have hit the 15 week mark. The belly continues to grow little by little. I still mostly look fat in clothing instead of pregnant, and this will contintue to be my theme for awhile it seems. I still say in another month that will probably change. I am definitely in maternity pants now. I could get away with my normal pants using the bella band to hold them up, but they are not nearly as comfortable as the maternity pants. I am opting for comfort, to be sure.

The naseau is still manageable at this point. It is no longer consistently all day, every day. Instead it comes in small waves at varying points throughout the day. Afternoons and evenings seem worse for that than mornings. I am hoping by week 17 that I am completely rid of the nausea. That would be lovely!

Only two weeks away from our next OB appointment, and only five weeks away from the ever-important anatomy scan where we will find out the gender of our little mini! I have set up a poll on the right hand side of the page...feel free to participate in the vote as to what you think we will be having. So far it is unanimous that everyone thinks we are having a girl...hmmmm...we will see!

Everyone we know thinks it is a girl. I am not sure why!!! Won't we be surprised if it turns out to be a boy at the 20 week u/s! Either way, we will be thrilled!!! - Megan

your favorite niece thinks its a girl because i needs a girl cousin, damn it—regardless of how many decades older than her i'll be. and reallllly, playing monopoly with a boy? too easy. you're going to need a girl to make sure you're not stealing $100s from the bank.

Catherine - you are too funny...yeah, a girl would be good for Monopoly for sure! You already know how much trouble boys can be...given your uncle. So, another girl vote it is. - Aunt Megan

I'm voting boy. The way you've been feeling with the nausea and all is way too eerily reminiscent to what Stacey went through with Dylan. This is a big reason why I will readily admit and shout from the rooftops that men are the weaker sex! I could never have the gumption to deal with all of that (unless it was "accidentally" alcohol induced!) :)

Glad your starting to feel better though!

You have a cute little baby bump! Doesnt it feel so amazing to be this far along already? You will start to feel your little mini and know how amazing it is! I cant wait to hear about that!

Tanya - thanks for "stopping by". It is always good to hear from you. Yep, pretty cool to be this far along. Can't wait for the 20 week mark...and then the 26 week mark for possible viability outside of the womb. Those will be big milestones. And, not sure if I will recognize the baby moving at first, but I do look forward to feeling it for sure! - Megan
