15 weeks

 Hello baby bump!

(I forgot my camera at my mom's on Saturday and we always take pictures on Sundays so we settled for iPhone pics)

The bare belly pics are funny because I folded down the maternity part of the pants and they look really bunchy...just imagine in 5 months when there is no extra fabric to fold! I love how maternity tanks make me look even more pregnant.

Thoughts: Feeling happy and excited this week! More energy means I can get more things done around the house and I have even started some baby projects. We find out the sex of our baby on Monday 2/18 and it feels so surreal! We are doing a gender reveal with our family on Friday 2/22 so be watching for an announcement next weekend :-).

Baby: baby Hart is growing eyebrows this week and if he/she takes after mom, then they are already dark and bushy haha. Baby can also sense light and if I were to shine a flashlight on my tummy, it would move away from the beam. Baby is about 4 inches from head to booty (plus those big calves!). Baby can also hear voices and tunes so we are singing our favorite lullabies so baby can recognize when he/she is born. Ernie is quite confused :)

Symptoms: I woke up Sunday morning feeling good so decided to forgo my 1 Zofran pill. I started feeling nauseous as church as getting out and felt better when we went to lunch but got sick that afternoon. I am experimenting with 1/2 a pill in the morning and 1/2 a pill at night... baby didn't like me quitting cold turkey. Random belly aches and cramping but nothing too serious. Weird but this week I have noticed myself getting really sore for no reason. Monday morning my lower back and legs were so sore and I hadn't worked out in 4 days? Could be the way I am sleeping but it isn't fun!

Sleep: I should no longer sleep flat on my back to protect blood flow and circulation so I find myself tossing and turning lots at night. I also wake up SO many times to pee yet I wake up feeling rested. 8-9 hours does the trick. 

Cravings/aversions/eating: this week I have wanted lots of juicy/watery fruits like pineapple, grapes and peaches which is good because I haven't really wanted any fruit this far. I am anxiously waiting for watermelon to come back into season because last year Jon and I would eat about 1 a week. 

Workouts: I went to my first fitness class since becoming pregnant, Turbo Kick, and man have I lost my stamina! Since I have more energy these days, it was fun but I definitely took her low impact examples. Walking with Ernie and trying to do weights a few times a week too.

Clothes: I made the switch to maternity pants and it is wonderful! I finally feel comfortable at work all day and it's fun to see my belly. I bought 2 pairs (1 capri, 1 Bermuda shorts) so they fit me really well and I have about 10 borrowed pairs I look forward to trying. I used to wear cotton v necks pretty much everyday to work but most of those are getting to short now (and I am pretty busty) so I am wearing a lot of tanks and cardigans. 

Random: I will say it once again, I am SO glad we bought a fetal heart doppler. It is such a special thing for us to find our babies heart beat together...the sound is like music to my ears. I even FaceTimed Jon on Monday while he was traveling because the HB was so strong and loud... he was so excited to hear. BPM has been high 140s-mid 150s and the occasional 160. 

My mom's countdown to baby Hart!

I absolutely love my growing belly! #15weeks

I'm not a mama to be or have ever been pregnant, but I've heard from many friends that a Snoogle has been their saving grace for sleep and soreness.

I don't know about costs or anything, but thought I would offer what [little] advice I could :)!

Liz said...

and again...I love the bump!! And your moms countdown is absolutely adorable! I think my mom's still in denial lol!

Enjoy the bump! Towards the end of my pregnancies I was ready to not have a bump any more. But then when I got pregnant again, I was always excited for the bump to come back. Too funny. I had a huge bump while I was carrying twins...birth weight: 7lbs 1oz, 7lbs 6oz. You are more petite than I am, but I am 5'2". My belly was huge that time around!

I look forward to these posts every week! You have the most adorable baby bump ever. And you can just see the excitement, love and joy all over your face! It's precious. Your mom's countdown is so cute.

Maternity pants are the best invention ever! I don't understand people who try and stay in regular pants as long as possible. I pull mine out at like 6 weeks! And I even wear some of them when I'm not pregnant ;)

Your growing belly makes me so happy! You're such a peanut so it's amazing to see how much it "pops" already! I can't believe you're already finding out the sex - it must be so surreal! Please have many photos taken at your gender reveal eek!

Danielle Carroll said...

Love, love your bump! So cute! And aren't you glad your craving fruit and not doughnuts? LOL

It's Sooo Fluffy! said...

I love these updates :)

Lauren said...

I loooved my maternity pants until the very end when I was ready to be out of them and they didn't quite feel elastic anymore but just tight haha. It's weird in the beginning wondering how they could ever be tight. I wish I could say they never got there but ummm, yeah, it was a game to squeeze the beach ball into them the last week or two.

You're all belly - so adorable!!

Sarah said...

Seriously girl your putting my bump pics to shame! You look awesome!! I am so excited for you to find out the gender!!

xoxo

Eeek! That belly! It's getting so plump (please take that in the nicest way possible). When my mum was pregnant with me, she craved crunchy food, fruit specifically. Now, I won't touch fruit if it's even remotely ripe, I need the crunch! When my mum was pregnant with my brother, she'd listen to Old McDonald in the car when her and I would drive anywhere. After my brother was born, and became fussy, if we sang Old McDonald to him, he'd calm down. It's amazing how much babies can hear/learn/become accustomed to in the womb!

You are the cutest! I think it's such a great idea to capture each week of your pregnancy and I know I love seeing the bump grow! I can remember last year when my sister in law was pregnant, it was fun getting pictures every so often and being able to compare..it made it even more fun since she is only 4'11 and her bump was bigger than her :)

It's so special for you and Jon too!

Cannot wait for next weekend to find out what your having!!

Lauren H. Edmondson said...

Ah, your precious bump is too cute.... it may be giving me second baby fever haha. Can't wait to see the baby projects you're working on!!

Marie H said...

So have you been craving more salty or sweet stuff? I have a theory that baby boys cause salty cravings and baby girls cause sweet cravings. It's totally not scientific just what I've observed. Can't wait to hear what you are having!!!!!!!!!!

Heather Leigh said...

EEkk! That's so exciting. Finding out the sex is always wonderful <3 When I was pregnant I would always sing to Evelynne. and now when I sing she gets this big grin on her face like I'm the best singer in the world.. She doesn't get out much haha!

Oh baby is growing!
I can totally feel you on the watermelon... I can't imagine how much watermelon I would eat if you also added in the pregnancy cravings! Sadly, the husband does not like watermelon :( but its ok, more for me!

By the way, I am a long-time reader finally coming out and commenting-- love reading your pregnancy updates! Congrats!

Super cute bump! I am jealous. I'm tall, so even at 24 weeks now, my whole torso just kind of flatly sticks out a little and does not look bumpish at all. I just wanted to chime in about the back sleeping. I've always heard it is okay to lie on your back till the 3rd tri, and even that said, do not worry if you end up sleeping on your back because your body will move if you are putting yourself in danger. I still sleep mostly on my stomach (since my baby does not feel the need to pop out yet), but otherwise I will lay on my back because I just cannot side sleep.

Alisha said...

Your mom's willow tree figure is darling with that count down! Love reading your updates. Makes me look forward to having a little babe one day :)

Love your mom's Grandma countdown...so cute. And I loved finding out the gender beforehand, too. It allows the focus at delivery to be on baby as a person, not "what" baby is. And it's a surprise whenever you find out! How fun and exciting!

Jess said...

You are the cutest ever pregnant! Congrats on Baby Hart & how cute is your mom's little countdown! Grandmas are the best :)

Carolyn said...
