15 weeks.



Well, here is the bump, growing a little more each day. I have to remember I can't just bend straight over anymore without feeling a little *pinch*.  Also, I must apologize for the outfit.  I'm going to be totally transparent here and say that I wore those electric blue yoga pants three days in a row.  It was so bad that my husband, who never says anything negative about my appearance, gently suggested that maybe I should change my pants.  Oh dear.  They're just so comfortable, especially when my jeans are torturous right now.  But I get his point.  When you add the red hoodie sweatshirt that is now so short that the pockets are at chest-level, it's time.  It's time to give something else a turn.

Favorite foods of the moment:
  • Refreshing smoothie: 1 cup plain whole milk yogurt, 1 1/2 frozen bananas, and the juice of 1 orange.   It's that simple, and goodness, it's delicious.  A little granola on top for some crunch makes it even better.  This is actually plenty for 2 servings.
  • PICKLES.  MUST HAVE PICKLES.  My favorites are the baby kosher dills from Whole Foods.
  • Baked potatoes with butter, sour cream, and sea salt.
  • Crispy grass-fed ground beef.  Basically I cook it in the pan until it crisps so it's not too spongy.  There's no way I can do spongy right now.
  • Eggs.  Eggs galore!  I'll never get sick of eggs.  I think I actually said, "Thank God for eggs" out loud the other night as I ate them for dinner.
  • Cream of Buckwheat and steel-cut oats - with butter and bananas on top.  And maybe a dab of yogurt.
And here's a belly front shot...

      Girl, you wear those electric blue yoga pants. My friend Juli has a pair of pants that are comfy that her husband lovingly calls her party pants. C, those are just your party pants.

      And, I don't know if you can do spicey when you are pregnant... somehow that just seems mean but Sam's parents make the BEST spicy pickles fresh from their garden. SOOOO goood. I'm going to go grab one out of the jar right now.

      I love your belly! That sounds weird to say after I almost clicked on the publish my comment thing.

      you're so cute! love the shots.
      and those foods sound very similar to my early pregnancy cravings. sweets sounded awful at first and i was hopeful that would be a lasting effect, but alas, my desire for chocolate returned full force. oh well!

      My preggo outfit is exactly the same, only in different colors. The pants (worn over and over again) are black and the sweatshirt (worn over and over again) a usedtobe white. I bought the bella band for when I go back to school and have to wear "real" clothes.

      I am so jealous that you can eat. The only thing we have in common are the pickles. Fruit is pleasing, always, but other than that, I can only dream.

      I loved baked potatoes as well - couldn't get enough. They are such a comfort food. Keep feeding that baby :) I keep picturing a baby girl. What are your thoughts?
