Muscle twitch or kick?!

I just felt something, three times in my lower abdomen.

AHHH. I can’t tell. DAMMIT.

How far along? 15 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Still about + 1 overall.
Maternity clothes? In addition to the Gap jeans purchased last week, I dropped three hundo on 2 more pairs of jeans and 4 shirts at Macy’s yesterday. Ooops. But not really, because I love them all and they’re all SO COMFY!!

Stretch marks? Not that I am aware of!

Sleep: Last night was MUCH better than the previous night. Being sick AND pregnant poses a sleep issue.

Best moment this week: Hmmm, I guess continuing the registry task, but this time with the hubs. :)

Movement: None. I can’t wait to feel it though!

Food cravings: Sushi & Beer. Again.

Gender: This week I’m thinking boy.

Labor Signs:
Belly Button in or out? Still innie. Still wider.

What I miss: Being able to do anything active without getting a backache.

What I am looking forward to: Feeling movement!

Weekly Wisdom: It’s okay to spend a bunch of money on maternity clothes – you’re basically buying a whole new wardrobe!

Milestones: Going baby item browsing with the hubby.

The Fruit: 15 weeks.

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.

Category baby business, not so much

I blame it on my brazen bragging of my “excellent health” last weekend. I was so proud of the fact that I did not get sick ONCE over the winter…and then…BLAMO. The sore throat set in Saturday morning, and by Sunday I was completely sick.

Being sick while pregnant is annoying. Last night, sleep was HORRIBLE. I was anxious and warm and achy and coughy. NyQuil would have been the bomb. Yet, I laid and did not sleep for like, 3 hours. Or if I would doze off, I’d wake up within 5 minutes. Booo.

And my teeth hurt. All of them. I guess this also is a pregnancy symptom, aggravated by my cold.

Still, I’ll take all of this over being nauseated or fatigued.

It was just announced that Elvis Costello will be playing the Taste of Minnesota on July 4th!

I’m SO EXCITED. I’ve always wanted to see him and never have, and now I can for just $10!!!


And a couple nights before – the Roots at First Avenue.

July cannot get here soon enough. :)
