How Far Along: 15 weeks, 4 days. 2nd trimester!
Size of the Baby: Avocado, 4-5 inches, 3-5 oz. 
Maternity Clothes: I bought my first pair of bright blue maternity skinny jeans! I'm wearing them right now! Basically I saw them in Motherhood Maternity a week or so ago when I was using my gift card my brother's got me for my birthday. I chose to get long tank tops and a belly band instead of fun things like bright blue skinny jeans and a chevron print tankini...well, I'd been thinking about the blue skinny jeans and then I dreamed about them so I told Kevin and said it must mean I really need to get them. They were on sale for $29.99 and also had them in red, wish they'd give me a 2 for 1 deal hehe (considering the ladies who worked there said they've never seen anyone try them on).
Stretch marks: Nope.
Weight gain/loss: Honestly not sure but I would say 6-7? Maybe more?  I'm supposed to gain a pound a week or gain around 12 total during the 2nd trimester.
Sleep: Still sleeping on my back, when is it too bad to sleep on your back? I hate sleeping on my side!
Best Moment of the Week: Last night we went to The Taj Mahal, an Indian restaurant in Fort Collins for my birthday and that was fun! I got Chicken Tikka Masala and Naan. Also, I got my hair colored darker and love it! No more ombre. I was getting tired of that.
Movement: Nope...BUT next week they say is when some people feel their baby move!!! Hope we feel our baby move soon! I guess between then and around 20 weeks or so is normal...but I want next week :)
Symptoms: Honestly I've been feeling pretty good. I am able to be super busy during the day getting stuff done and running errands. However, I do still get super tired early and go to bed around 9-10pm. But I think I have more energy overall! I kind of feel like my stomach is starting to itch? Maybe I will use the stretch mark cream stuff...
Food Cravings: Recently I've been having LOTS of fruit! I love that and smoothies! I am always down for Mexican food though!
Gender: April 12, 2012 is the big day we find out! Come sooon!!!
Belly Button in or out: In.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really, just need to eat a lot haha.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Wedding ring on or off: On.
What I miss: Wearing all my clothes and having more options for putting together outfits.
What I am looking forward to: Babymoon!
Nursery: We'll figure it out after we find out the sex.
Emotions: GOOD!
Stupid things I have done: Ummm nothing? HA.

Question:
Where do you get your maternity clothes?

Some people are telling me that they just wear their normal clothes and stretch them out...but I'm wondering doesn't that ruin them? I mean how can it not? Really though? So, I'm thinking it is smarter to buy cute maternity clothes and save your normal clothes for later? Why stretch them out? I don't know...I just have a lot of clothes that I would NOT like to ruin by stretching out. I care a lot about my clothes. Maybe some of the reasons that people stretch them out are because they can't afford maternity clothes...well, once you stretch out your normal clothes turning them into maternity clothes, and after the baby comes and all, are you going to buy all new normal clothes? I'm trying to figure it out.

  4. If your clothes are tight- then yeah- you'll stretch them out. But with looser clothes- you'll be fine most of your pregnancy. Most people don't get very big until the end- but some people get big earlier on. Motherhood Maternity has super cute maternity clothes- plus there are online places you can order from. I have yet to find cute, cheap maternity clothes- it just depends on your budget.
    Good Luck Shopping!

  7. I bought normal clothes, just in a size bigger than what I normally wear, but looking back I wish I would have just bought actual maternity clothes. Maternity clothes are made to fit your pregnancy body better than "normal" clothes. So I feel it may have been more "flattering" by buying maternity shirts that fit my belly curves instead of wearing bigger clothes...make sense?
    I'd try to start switching to your side now so you're already used to it when it comes time to having to do it. I got to a point where I couldn't even breath laying on my back, so it forced me to sleep on my side.
    And love the dark hair. Super cute!
