15 Weeks!

So, I'm 15 weeks this week and feeling pretty good. Feeling good makes me nervous though LOL. My next appt isn't until 9/9 so I have to wait until then to get confirmation from Renee. It feels like it's so far away. I think I got used to seeing Renee every week for awhile there!! I've gotten a little bit bigger, too. I have to take some new pictures soon. My cravings for the past few weeks have been salad dressing and smarties. YUM.

One of my friends at work is PG. She's 8 weeks and it's so exciting to have someone to talk baby about at work! Otherwise, I love having my GP friends, which really are a great group of girls. A few days ago my BFPB Jessica (Carter's Mommy, yay!) sent me her doppler in the mail so I can use it since she won't need it for awhile! She's so sweet! Yay! Thanks again Jess ;) Then today I had lunch with Monkey and was a great time! Next weekend I'll be meeting up with Lyse and maybe MrsH for lunch! It's so nice connecting with the GP girls. I wish I could meet everyone! Isn't time you saw the Liberty Bell? LOL

So, the heartbeat has been a little hard to find with the doppler so far. I think the baby is just so active! The first night we couldn't find it at all and I tried not to get worried, but I was bummed about it. Last night we found it for a couple seconds maybe. But earlier tonight we found it for a good 10 seconds!!! It's in the 150s! Woot! I still don't believe this is real. I mean I saw the baby on the multiple u/s I've had and I hear the heartbeat but I still can't believe it. I'm hoping to feel the first movements and kicks soon so I can really let it sink in! I'm very anxious to start the registry and the nursery and all that stuff! I'm going to get some stuff gender neutral and some other stuff gender specific, so some things I won't be able to plan on until after our anatomy scan on the 18th of Sept.
We still are having a hard time with a boys name. I'm pretty sure we decided on a girls name. It would either be Amelia Emily or Maura Emily. I think Maura Emily flows better, but I don't think it matters much because how many times do you really use your middle name? So, we'll see. And if we find out it's a boy...we're going to have to get a name book and try to agree on something.

In other news, my nephew that seems to have gone from 6 months to 6 years old started football! His first game is coming in soon, but here's a pic from practice. He's so cute!


  1. WEEEEE!! Can't wait to meet you either! xoxo

  2. I'm jealous of your locals!

    And i still love Maura. :) but I've decided lil toot's a boy.

  3. Ooops, I've been horrible about checking blogs..but you're very welcome for the doppler as long as it doesn't make you freak out, or i'll come take it back. I see how much fun you're having meeting people, but I won't even bring Carter if I have to come get my
