15 Week Survey- Baby O #3

How far along? 15 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Not sure! And we were gone over the weekend so I wasn't home to weigh myself. I will do it again at 16 weeks.
How big is baby?  Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds.- Baby Center
Maternity clothes?  Yes, just some capris and shorts. They are way more comfortable because it was starting to hurt when I bent over wearing my regular jeans. Also have worn a couple new summer dresses I got from Old Navy and I LOVE them!
Sleep: It has been really great this week, thankfully. I haven't even needed any unisom and I haven't woken up to use the bathroom. Although the kids keep waking me up around 6:30. I know 30 minutes doesn't seem like much but I would REALLY love to sleep until 7 at least!
Best moment this week: Play date at Kerri's house, play date at Marci's, taking the kids to the park and having dinner at Cherry Street Deli (so good!) Having dinner Thursday evening with the other Moms in my MOPS group at Fajita Republic (and no kiddos for a few hours, woo hoo!)  Friday we went to Norton Shores to stay with Chris's parents for a few nights and hang out for Memorial Day weekend. We played outside, and also went and had dinner and gelato in Grand Haven. Chris and his Dad, Bob, built the kids a swing set so that is fun for them to have there now!  Sunday afternoon we grilled out and then headed home. On Memorial Day we did a bunch of stuff around the house and yard work, and grilled ribs. It was a fun but exhausting weekend! We played a couple games of Washers and I am so sore!
Movement: I have actually been feeling some twinges this past week! I know it is super early but I swear I am feeling movement. Exciting!
Food cravings:   Fruit, chocolate chip cookies, chips-mainly salt and vinegar, cold sandwiches
Food aversions:  The only thing I have REALLY noticed this past week is that if something is "light" or "fat free" etc, I can really taste it and it tastes terrible!  Sour cream, cottage cheese, etc.
Gender: Surprise!
Names: I have some in my head! We need to talk about it still and have a lot of time.
Labor Signs: Nothing thank goodness!  
Symptoms:  Just pressure on my abdomen occasionally. 
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off?  Still on
Stretchmarks? Yes, from before :)
How are you feeling?  Energetic mostly, but tired by the end of the day.
What I am looking forward to: Our 20 week ultrasound, just to make sure that all of the organs look great etc. Praying for a HEALTHY baby, most importantly! 
What I miss:  Drinking. Didn't really miss it much with Gray and Nora but I miss it lately. It has finally gotten hot out and every time Chris has had a margarita or opened a beer my mouth waters! 
Weekly Wisdom:
Sleep when you can.
Milestones: Being over 1/3 of the way done. Crazy!
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others:  Strangers asking me when I'm due, what baby this is etc.
