I had a really good week, despite my hormones being completely out of control—I ran out of the shopette in tears one day, because the lady wouldn't give me a stamp on my rewards card for returning my movie, and then I sat in my car and did the ugly cry for a good five minutes before I could finally see straight again. I also get a little queasy when I brush my teeth (so strange), but other than that things are golden!
Way before I was pregnant I fell in love with Hanna Mac's maternity book, and I was thrilled when I saw she now sells the template! I bought the PSD version so I could play around with it and I think I like the results! I'd love to put a book together at the end of my pregnancy, so I may make last week's Bumpdate to match this style. What do you think?!

How far along: 15 weeks today!
Fun facts: Baby can sense light. Apparently if I put a flashlight to my belly it'll move away from the beam. I can't decide if that sounds mean or like something I want to try.
How big is the baby: One site says the size of an orange and another says the size of an apple—either way, it's getting big! It also weighs about 2.5 ounces.
Total weight gain: +1 on my scale this morning. I'm nervous, because the next time I go to the doctor will be three days after we get back from our cruise. YIKES!
Sleep: FINALLY sleeping better! I slept (almost) all through the night every night this week. Such a nice feeling.
Best moment of the week: Choosing yogurt from my fridge instead of getting gelato. I'm trying hard not to "eat for two" and to pick healthier choices when I have cravings. That was really my only healthy swap this week, but it's better than nothing!
Food Cravings: Milk. I've always loved milk, but I'm drinking it A LOT more often—had to go to the store three times to get more! I think a lot has to do with the fact that I'm eating cereal for breakfast these days. I've also been on a pea and corn kick of all things. I like them mixed together with some salt and pepper. Yum! (I know, totally weird.)
Food aversions: Rotisserie chicken still stinks, but other than that I can't think of anything, which is pretty exciting! I haven't tried eating raw onions yet.
Movement: I lie awake at night when it's completely silent and hope to feel the baby move. Sometimes I think I feel something, but it's only for a split second. I'm so anxious to feel Pickles moving around!
Gender: Won't find out for a several more weeks...Apparently here it's between 21 and 24 weeks?
What I'm looking forward to: My parents arrive tomorrow, and I can't wait to see them!!!
What I really miss: COLD deli meat. I've heated it up and then put it back in the fridge, but it just doesn't taste the same.
Most worried about: my list is too long, but I'm trying not to let them bother me anymore.
Most excited about: Finally feeling good again and relaxing/traveling with my parents for the next several weeks!
