15 Weeks

WOW, the weeks are really zooming by! I can’t believe I’m already at 15!

Some highlights of my fun little pregnant life:

  • A shopping trip last Saturday with my lovely Mom (yes, she has a myspace) for maternity clothes. Destination Maternity in Riverpark has some adorable things — I was surprised! I picked up the pink top and jeans I’m wearing in the picture, another hot pink top, and a white camisole. Those should get me through this paycheck… then I’m going back for a dress. Or two. Or three.
  • Baby Gable is now the size of a teaspoon, or about 4.5 inches. Precious!
  • I felt some movement the other night before bed, then again the next night. You hear all these women saying how the flutters feel like ‘butterflies’, but I’d say it’s more like someone’s finger tapping. Like, when you’re doing that impatient, finger-tapping-on-the-table-thing… only inside your uterus. haha
  • The date has been set for the BIG ULTRASOUND — June 19th, at 8:00am. You all have no idea how excited I am to find out what this little baby is! And following Lisa’s example, I’m going to give you all an opportunity to get your predictions in before the big day. :)

And Shea, to answer your question about where I’m taking these pictures…

I sit at work some days and having nothing to do but think about being pregnant and how freaking huge my tummy is getting. So then I take a little trip to our ghetto bathroom and snap a low-quality cell phone picture to share with the world. Why I don’t wait for Justin to take a good one with his expensive camera, I don’t know. Maybe I should start… these make me look pasty.

P.S. Why don’t they have Fun Mum in America!? I want this top SO BAD, but with shipping it comes out to about $80.00. Le sigh.

  1. Look at that bump! That shirt is too adorable. And I can’t even imagine what the cuteness of your belly must be in adequate lighting and without the bathroom haze :)

  2. Are you going to show us your ultrasound? That would be cute. Then again, it’s a personal thing, so I understand if you don’t.

  3. OK finger tapping describes it perfectly in the beginning! Way better than my combination of sensations that I tried to describe to you…

    Oh! And if you are feeling a little crafty I might have a solution for your Fun Mum wants…

    This shirt from GAP maternity, $20-25 (depending on the color you get):

    Or this one from Old Navy Maternity, $16.50:

    A little iron-on transfer paper for your color printer, $11 :

    Add a little photoshop creativity or steal an image from the Internet and presto! a shirt for around $30 instead of $80. I’ve used the iron-on stuff before to make a few shirts and they turned out really cute. Just be sure to cut close to the elements of the image and not just a big square.

  4. AH! Lisa, that’s an awesome idea! I’m going to have to try it out, for sure…

    and Trisha, I’m DEFINITELY putting a picture up!

  5. Ok, you’re adorable. I just enjoyed reading your entire blog. I love the fashion tips (heaven knows I need all the help I can get) and here’s a standing ‘amen’ to being a proper lady!

    Congratulations on the baby, too — can’t wait to find out what it is!

  6. Yay, your ultra sound will be on my birthday! Hoping you guys have a healthy baby regardless. Our first ultrasound is June 10th. I’ll be 8 weeks and 1 day!

  7. could you be any more freaking adorable?! you look great love! i can’t believe your mom has a myspace, mine doesn’t even have email. haha. <3
