Week 15

I would get all dressed up and show my face/put on makeup to update you all on my belly status, but I am sick :( So I am lounging. I did put on that sweater so it looks like I'm semi-decent ;) Being sick while pregnant is less than ideal since you can't take hardly any good medicine since most harm the baby. So it's been awful! 

I've been reading a baby blog I've found on Pinterest and have decided to steal these questions from it and to start updating weekly at least with these and probably a baby pic :) I have my next doctor's appointment on Thursday and I'm really hoping to find out the sex of the baby but I'm not sure if they will do an ultrasound. We will see!

How far along? 15 Weeks, 2 days
Total weight gain/loss: Not sure since my scale is broken! I will have to update this on Thursday when they weigh me! As of my last doctor's appointment I had only gained 2 pounds.
Maternity clothes? Wearing my bella bands like crazy and one pair of maternity pants for work but I can still wear most of my shirts. I just ordered some  maternity shirts yesterday on sale. 
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Sleeping great minus being sick
Best moment this week: Getting my insurance card for December 1st! 
Have you told family and friends: Yep
Miss Anything? Drinking... especially on thanksgiving when my grandparents came down and they made Rum cake and I couldn't have any :( 
Movement: Nothing yet :(
Food cravings: LEMONADE (ALL THE TIME!) and sweets and sometimes fruits. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Eggs and mexican food and a lot of other random things.
Have you started to show yet: I think so for sure but if I wear certain things you can't tell. Definitely feeling chubby!
Gender prediction: I've been having dreams that I'm having a girl but last night I had a dream that I had an ultrasound and it was a boy... so now I'm not sure! 
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender, feeling the baby move and moving into our townhouse so I can decorate the baby room! :)

And just for laughs:

First off, my work knows I'm pregnant now and they are all so supportive so I'm so lucky! My manager said I can have off whenever I need to for doctor's appointments. I also finally told my grandparents so everyone in my family knows and they are happy for me! I've been offered TWO cribs from my Gram and my Aunt Jennie. A lot of people have offered to give me toys and clothes and such. I'm so excited :)

As for the doctor, I've found one that I'm really happy about thanks to my boss's recommendation. I went this past friday because of pain and it turns out everything was okay! They did an ultrasound and it was so crazy seeing my baby since last time it was just a blob and now it looks like a baby!! Here is a picture from my ultrasound. 
Such a cute little peanut!

My next appointment is December 1st :)

As for names, I'm going to need some help (especially if it's a girl!). We have a girl's middle name for sure and a boy's first name but we need a girl's first name and boy's middle name. Elizabeth was Ben's sister's name and I've always loved the Beatles and I love the name Jude... not to mention Jude Law is sexy!! haha

So if you read this entry, PLEASE VOTE for which names you think are best :)

If it's a BOY:

First Name: Jude (Liam was our second choice but I think we've settled on Jude)

Middle Name: Not sure! Levi, Noah or Michael are possibilities but we are open to suggestions :)

If it's a GIRL:

I had always said I was naming my first girl Sophia (nicknamed Sophie) and my second girl Lena (pronounced LEE-Nuh)... but Sophia is so high on the baby name lists, I'm not sure anymore..

First Name OPTIONS: Sophia (Sophie), Lena, Estella, Corabelle, Livia, Izzy, Adara, Layla, Mieke (pronounced MEEK-Uh)

Middle Name: Elizabeth

Just keep in mind that the baby's last name will be Hill!



PS I'm still in love with yard sales and have gotten even more baby clothes!

PPS Here's my bumb as of yesterday!
