15 Weeks Pregnant - T-shirt Project

Today I am 15 weeks pregnant with BITO.  This week, symptoms wise, has been GREAT.  I have felt really good, my belly isn't growing at the astronomical pace that it was doing previously, and we've just grown more and more excited to see if it is a boy or a girl!

We have the results of asking everyone whether they think it's a girl or boy.  Since we took the pictures, we've had more votes ... but I'll give the results in a bit.  For now, here is the 15 week T-shirt project.  I LOVE the picture with Liliana.  When we ask her where the baby is, she lifts up her shirt and points to her belly.  It's hilarious.

15 Weeks Pregnant Survey

How Far Along: 15 weeks today

Total Weight Gain: if I had to guess, it's about 2 to 2.5 pounds.  I haven't weighed myself in a while.  I will know next week when I go to the OB.

Stretch Marks: None.  I'm hoping that since I didn't get them with Liliana, I won't get them this go around!

Sleep:  Not great.  I fall asleep quickly but wake up often.  I also have STRANGE and VIVID dreams.

Miss Anything?: This week I didn't miss much!  I do miss wearing my contacts full time b/c the pregnancy has given me VERY dry eyes.  BUT this week that got a lot better and the opthamologist gave me the green light to wear the contacts a few hours here and there.  YAY.

Movement:  The last two days I didn't feel ANYTHING.  That had me quite worried although Evan assured me that since I was feeling movement so early if the baby moves just a little I could stop feeling movements.  While I listened to him, I only sorta did and still had my concerns, but I am glad to report that today I've felt quite a few already and those make me smile.

Food Cravings: CANTALOUPE!  The cantaloupe at the cafeteria at work is simply AMAZING.  I've also wanted banana pudding and haven't made it.  I need to get on that.

Food Aversions:  Anything messy looking still doesn't seem safe to me, like stew or chili.  I'm sure it also has to do with the fact that this winter in Little Rock has been incredibly mild.  I mean, the high is 70 degrees today!

Gender: WHO KNOWS!  We find out a week from today!  In fact, in exactly one week to the minute, we will probably know because our appointment is first thing in the morning.

Looking Forward To: Hmm ... not much.  HAHA! YEAH RIGHT!  Finding out if we're having a little girl or a handsome boy!  CAN'T WAIT! I was excited with Liliana, but for some reason, I KNEW it was a girl that time.  While I still think it is, I just want to know FOR SURE.  : )

Now for the results of the tallies.  When we took the picture, we hadn't received 5 extra votes that we got.  The FINAL tally came to:

BOYS: 29


When we took these pictures, all the tallies weren't in, but Daddy still made his smug face and Mommy still made her "just you wait and see!" face!


  1. Your family is seriously the cutest! Cannot wait to hear what BITO is!!

  2. It will be really fun to find out - such an exciting time!

  3. I love the t-shirt idea. I am contemplating whether at 10 weeks its going to be lame to start now! Very cute pregnant lady. Do you know of any female lawyers married to physicians who work in a firm environment? And everyone says boy for me but I say girl. I think it will be the same for you!

  4. Love the picture of you and Liliana!!!

  5. OMG that picture of you and Liliana is too cute!
