15 weeks


And we've reached another week!  Yay!  I had another dr. appointment this past week and everything went well!  Although we had to wait for over an hour to see him and then the whole appointment probably took 10 minutes.  Oh well, at least the other ladies in the waiting room had a good laugh at Tyler.  He had worked 11:30pm to 11:30am the night before and my appointment was at 12:45 so he just stayed up to go with him (such a sweet guy) and so needless to say, he fell asleep in the waiting room.  When the nurse called my name, I got up and he didn't.  It was quite humorous.  Don't worry Tyler we were all laughing with you not at you :)

I have been having headaches that won't go away with Tylenol (since that's the only thing I can take) and so it was making me nervous/paranoid since that's a sign of preeclampsia.  And so I was constantly taking my blood pressure here at home (I have a cuff from last pregnancy).  It was always fine but it still worried me.  I asked the dr. about it and he just thinks it's gotta be from stress.  I didn't think I was stressed but maybe subconsciously I was.  Anyhow, they gone away for the most part.  Just need to relax more I guess. 

We heard a strong fast heartbeat at 163bpm and I'm measuring right where I should be.  

I started feeling little "fluttering" this week and I love it!  I can only feel it because I know what it's supposed to feel like.

I don't wanna jinx myself by saying this but the last couple nights I have been feeling "ok."  I'm not 100% but I'm not miserable either.  As long as I keep myself distracted and eat constantly (I've still only gained 2 lbs, despite my horrendous new eating habits!) I'm fine. 

I've found that frozen blackberries are scrumptious.

I was able to start "working out," not sure if I can even use that term, and am walking in the mornings before it gets hot out.


  1. You look beautiful!! Love that little baby bump and am thankful things are going well so far and that you are feeling better. Hugs!

  2. Hopefully this will make you feel better, despite the fact that I'm certainly not having the best pregancy... but its unrealted so far to pre-e. Around 15-somewhere in the early 20ish weeks I had horrible headaches. Not sure why, but they finally went away... hormones maybe? Hopefully yours won't last too long.

  3. You look great! Love the flutters. :)
