Pregnancy stuff to remember - 15 weeks

Since baby number three will probably get the short end of the stick in pretty much every other area, I decided to do one of these baby journal things... something I never did with either Elise or Mattias. 

No... I am not dropping some obscure gang sign. This is baby number three, yo.

Size of baby:  I have no idea... the size of an avocado? Some other fruit?  Does this make me a bad Mom that I don't know this stuff?

Total Weight Gain: Right now I'm at negative 12 pounds.  But that's about par for the course with me.  It's okay, since due to a wonky thyroid, I was about 10 pounds over my normal weight when I got pregnant.

Maternity Clothes: Bahahahaha!  I'm just thankful to be comfortably fitting back into my normal clothes.

Gender: To early yet... we may or may not find out.

Movement: I know they say it's too early, but I swear I feel some movement.  Judging by the bazillion ultrasounds I've had, this baby is a mover and a shaker.

Symptoms: nausea, barfing, more nausea and even more nausea!  I'm learning to be thankful for the barfies because it means everything is okay.  I've had a few complications with this pregnancy (including surgery), so indications that all is well is most welcome, even if it is on the form of puking.

Sleep: Thanks to my anti-nausea meds, I have no problems in that area!

What I miss: Having energy.  My poor kids think I'm the lamest Mom ever.  They may be right.

Cravings: Lettuce wraps, peaches, blueberries, and oven roasted tomatoes with garlic.  By far the weirdest craving ever. And yes, I've been making them.  In fact, today I ate almost a pound and a half of them... mighty tasty stuff, friends.

Best Moments this week: I had one day where I had energy and wasn't nauseous.  Of course I ruined it by worrying about it.

What I am looking forward to: Hopefully getting over feeling so sick all the time.  EATING!
