How Far Along: 15 Weeks
Size of baby: The size of a large apple or four inches
Weight Gain/Loss: 1lb the last time I went to the doctor. I go again next week and I have a feeling that number may have grown!
Maternity Clothes: Still just using my Bella Band.
Gender: Don't know yet, but next month we we get to find out. Be praying I find a new doctor in Nashville quickly so we can schedule that ultrasound and continue maternal care.
Movement: Yes! More and more. Still little bumps and taps, usually at Harrison when he is on my lap or while I am falling asleep at night.
Sleep: Off and on it's been ok. Harrison is getting better so sleep hours are extending slowly!
What I Miss: This week we drove ten hours to Tennessee and back so I definitely missed not having to use the restroom every 30 minutes-made the trip a little longer with all the needed breaks! Haha!
Cravings: Animal crackers; so nutritious, I know.
Symptoms: Feeling baby move and my pants get a little tighter. Other than that, I feel great!
Best Moment of The Week: Seeing the home where we will move and this baby will be born.
Big brother holding an apple, the diameter is about the size of the baby, four inches!
Two suggestions for getting connected in Nashville. . .
1 - MOPS: it looks like there are a few groups that meet near the area where you will be living. I would encourage you to go ahead and visit a few groups, even though there is only 3-4 months left this year - it would be helpful, especially with baby #2 coming soon. Here's a link to one church's website with a group: http://www.clearview.org/all/events/25/2010/09-01/mops---mothers-of-preschoolers
2 - We have an online Mommies Network here, but I couldn't find the same forum in the Nashville area. But this one may be worth checking out and you could probably ask for doctor/ob recommendations:
Hope to see you this weekend!
