My Pregnancy: 15 weeks

How far along: 15 weeks 

Total weight gain:  Still 3.5 lbs. I'm sure I'll gain more during this 2nd tri, but I was throwing up a lot while I was suffering from kidney stones, so my weight stayed at a standstill. Thankfully I didn't lose any. 
Maternity clothes: Not yet, but hoping to take a trip to H&M this month for some cute maternity wear! Fall is here and I can't wait to start wearing skinny jeans, boots, long-sleeved shirts and scarves! Yay! :)
Stretch marks: Nada!
Sleep: I slept better this week and woke up less. We had just had family in town, so I stayed up late each night, and skipped all my usual naps, so I'm feeling very tired and need to catch up. At least I'm sleeping pretty soundly throughout the night right now. 
Pregnancy symptoms: Nothing too bad this week! Nauseous occasionally in the mornings, before I eat, and sometimes at night, but I'm continuing to feel better each week, so I'm hopeful the nausea will be completely gone very soon! 
Best moment of this week: We just threw my son his 2nd birthday party and had a BLAST! We had a rockstar themed party, because he loves music. Family was visiting from CA, and it was so nice to have people come celebrate with us. Love having visitors, and I LOVE any excuse to throw a party! :) 
Miss anything: I'm missing being able to eat more salty food. Although unhealthy, I've been craving chips and dip, and savory foods lately. However, because of the kidney stones, my Nephrologist told me I have to lower my sodium intake as much as possible so I don't get anymore. Boo! But it's worth it. So what do I do instead...? Compensate with sweets of course, lol. 
Movement: I thought I felt a little flutter two different times this week, but I'm just not 100% sure. So... waiting for that moment where I'm certain. Plus, a nurse told me it's not likely to feel movement before 17 weeks, since the baby is still very small. However, I've heard of people feeling movement sooner, especially after they've already had one baby. 
Food cravings/aversions: I've been wanting Caesar salads so much lately! In fact, I've been buying the salad-in-bag from the grocery store, and eating the whole thing myself. In one sitting. :) Mmmm! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing I can think of! 
Gender prediction: My husband thinks it's a boy, but I still have no clue. We're both very anxious to know 'who's in there', but we have to wait till the end of Oct. 
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy most of the time! I was a little emotional here and there this week, but I think it's more because I'm tired, and less because of pregnancy hormones. Haven't had any need to blame those quite yet! ;) 
Upcoming appointments/events: My brother-in-law, his wife and their baby girl are coming to visit us this week! It's be there first time coming to our new home and seeing the area we live in. So excited to show them around and do some fun things! Can't wait to love on my sweet little niece for 5 days either! 

Weekly Wisdom/Quote"Making a decision to have a child; it's momentous. It's to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." 

MilestonesGlad to be sleeping better at night right now!
