15 Weeks

This past Thursday (June 3rd) I reached the 15 week mark. I just recently started showing, but to the average person who doesn't know I'm pregnant it's probably difficult to tell if I'm pregnant or just pudgy. The good news is that I haven't had to start wearing any maternity clothes yet because I can still fit most my regular pants and those that are a little snug I can get by with leaving unbuttoned under blousy shirts. I did buy a pair of maternity jeans about a month ago, but they are so uncomfortable right now. Hopefully that will change once my belly grows a little bigger. In this photo I actually look a little bigger than I really am due to the combo of my hand on top of my belly and the dress.

And, the best news about reaching week 15? My nausea has FINALLY gone away!!! I now have a slight appetite and can hopefully start to put on a few pounds and resume working out now that I can do more than lie on the sofa after work. I've managed to put on and maintain 2 lbs since my last dr. appt a couple weeks ago...hopefully my dr will be satisified.

I found a link to this funny website a little bit ago where you can morph two photos together to see what your future child would look like. So, I present to you our 'lil turkey:

Ha! Hopefully our kid will have a little better hairdo when they're born. Looks like a girl to me (or a very feminine boy).

What is our baby up to now?

Your Baby: Week 15

Continuing the march towards normal proportions, baby's legs now outmeasure the arms. And, finally, all four limbs have functional joints. Your fetus is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, though you probably still can't feel the movements.


  1. Yay for no more nausea! You look adorable in your picture. Just wait until you are really showing and complete strangers want to come up put their hands on your belly, ha!

  2. That morphing picture thing is pretty cool. It will be fun for you all to see if he or she really does look like that!
    So glad you are feeling better, you look great!
