15 Weeks

I reached 15 weeks this last Wednesday and with it came feeling the baby move for the first time! If I remember right, 15 weeks is when I felt the boys move too, only I was convinced that's not what I was really feeling. It took me calling my mom, mother-in-law, and many friends to FINALLY believe that it truly was the babies moving. This time around, however, I'm not so naive. And while it caught me a bit off guard, I was instantaneously 100% sure that it was #3 moving around. Ahh, what a wonderful thing to feel the baby move. In fact, I think it's my absolute favorite part about being pregnant! It's something that only you and that little one share. And I particularly love how much that movement changes as the baby grows. I specifically remember rubbing on Ben's knee when it would poke me in my side and then when he was born that knee felt so familiar! Such an amazing thing!
15 weeks also brought with it a momma no longer plagued with queasiness. I was beginning to wonder a bit if I might struggle with morning sickness for the duration, but alas the clouds have cleared and the birds have begun to chirp again :) Now that my appetite is back, I also had my first ever craving. And I am slightly ashamed to admit, not what, but when I had to have it!! First off, it was Ham and Cheese Hot Pockets. Not so bad, right?! Kinda gross but not anything like some of the concoctions you hear of. However, the urge came at 7 in the morning! I don't think my shaving husband could have been any more shocked when I asked him to run to the store for me! But he obliged and 30 minutes later the world seemed right again!
As for more ultrasound pics, we have out next OB appointment on the 16th of July, which puts me at 17 weeks, and then we'll be scheduling our 20 week ultrasound after that appointment. And for those of you wondering but who haven't yet heard, we will be finding out this baby's gender....in the delivery room! We have decided to keep the gender and name a secret until the big day! Yes, again! This should be MUCH harder this time since we will have such amazing and clear 3d pics! But I trust we will be able to see it through again and what fun it will be to put the package all together on the day this little one is born!

so happy for you, I loved being surprised in the delivery room with Hannah and Jack too! Glad you are feeling better, that's right around when my nausea starting clearing up too. You look great!

You had me going for a moment on whether or not you were going to find out the sex! I was hoping you were going to drop a bomb and say you were going to find out.

Guess I will just have to wait like the rest of us, but I can still think pink!!
