15 weeks and strawberry picking

Week and day: 15 weeks

Belly Button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: on for now.

Food cravings: Pickles and hot sauce. I can't belive I want hot sauce! I've never liked hot sauce. I've eaten grilled chicken with hot sauce at Quaker Steak and Lube two days in a row!!

Food aversions: nothing really.

Nausea: yup, still. Its different though. It hits me around 11:30 and its more of an ill feeling than "morning sickness", but its nothing a little hot sauce can't cure.

Energy level: much better! No nap this week (but I hope David doesn't read this -- I don't think he does -- because sometimes he lets me take a nap on the weekend while he plays with the girls and I don't want to give that up!)

Weight gain: About 10 lbs.

Mood: Pretty normal, but I get cranky when that ill feeling hits mid day.

Maternity clothes: Absolutely! Wearing 'em and loving 'em!

Size of baby: apple -- impressive, don't you think?

Changes of baby: Our baby can move all its joints and limbs now!

Next appointment: May 22nd. Blood work only.

Other: Things are going great! I can't wait to find out if I'm having a boy or girl. Its still 5 weeks away!!! That seems like forever! But, we go on vacation in 2 weeks so at least I'll have a little break to take my mind off things.


Now, the strawberry picking. We went as a family last weekend and it was a BLAST!! We put the girlies in their wagon and pulled them up and down the isles while David and I picked the berries. We gave them fresh berries to eat and they were in heaven! When they would finish their berry they would drop the stem and say "more, more". I actually paid for an extra pound when we left because I felt guilty, they ate SO MANY STRAWBERRIES!! When we got home I was putting the berries away and they stood at my feet still asking for more. They have eaten them with almost every meal and are still loving them!

I love the pictures! We can't wait to meet the new baby. Hey, do they make wagons for 3? You will need one for strawberry picking next year.

Please tell me... what is "Quaker Steak and Lube?" Doesn't at all sound like a place one should be ordering food from!

LOVING the hot sauce! LO and I met hubs for lunch today and we were splitting our meal (as usual) and I suggested the buffalo chicken tenders. He was SHOCKED! I've never been in to them before, but I sure am now!!!

Awesome pics of the girls! Looks like fun was had by all! :)

Uh Oh! You are in trouble David saw!!! I am so jealous that you got to go pick Strawberries! I can't take Leah...I used to be MAJORLY allergic to them and my sister has recently developed an allergy and even though they say it is not genetic, the pediatrician has told me to wait until she could tell me if she felt funny!!! I love them though and can't wait till we can!!!
