So, do you want to see the belly?

Well, I was supposed to get my hair done tomorrow, but Genn and I had a little mishap in the calendar, so now I will have to wait until next Wednesday. (But I’m sure she’ll make me look like a glamour girl, that’s why I’m willing to wait.) My point, a silhouette is all I can show you because I look like a dried out rat with hair that looks like its been shocked in an electrical outlet. No joke.
For now, here’s what you get.
And I’m copying this off of Kelly’s blog because I think it’s a great idea.
Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: almost 15 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby D is just about 4inches
Total Weight Gain: Gained 5 lbs stinkin pounds, but seriously I’m am widening by the minute!
Maternity Clothes: Definitely. From one day to the next I couldn’t even do the hook-your-zipper-with-a- rubberband trick. So you’ll be seeing a lot of the same jeans and shorts, over and over and over again because this is the last time around for preggo clothes.
Gender: Can't wait to find out!
Movement: Just the flutters
Sleep: Actually I hardly sleep at night, but I’ve been taking 1-2 hour naps with Bogie.
What I miss: Nothing yet
Cravings: Mango and anything sweet. Cookies, cookies, cookies.
Symptons: The migraines are finally starting to pass. The doctor doesn’t think they were brought on by pregnancy, but they were probably enhanced because of them. I’m still sticking with a diet free of trigger foods. (NO caffeine, no chocolate, no lunch meat, no cheese (I cheat on this one.)
Best Moment this week: Having another sonogram and seeing the little peanut move around.
And onto other things:
I always eat my mango Mexican Style. It reminds me so much of my childhood. Isn’t it amazing how a certain taste or smell can transfer you to a totally different time. I loved when my Grandpa would set out mango just like this. And the lime juice at the bottom of the bowl is always a treat.
Mango, lime, little salt, chili powderIMG_5147
The boys and I had a tea party. Well Boy Style Tea Party. They had small turkey sandwiches and fruit with real tea. I tried to show them proper etiquette of passing the plates around and having small bites. That’s not really a boy thing.IMG_5113

Hoping you have time to enjoy a cup of tea today.

You are so cute and tiny! This is a great way to document your pregnancy and a fun addition to baby's scrapbook. As for etiquette, is there something in your book about teaching boys to chew with their mouths closed?

Genn said...

Okay, super cute baby bump that you are rocking there! And that is such a neat picture.

I'm sorry about the wait for your hair appointment.
Hang in there... just a few more days!! I'll give you an extra special scalp massage since your preg. ;)

PS- My husband loved your comment on my last post. He laughed that football season is shorter than baseball season. :)
