15 Weeks {Pregnancy Update}

How Far Along: 15 weeks, 4 days.
Size of baby: as big as an apple, measuring about 4 inches long and weighing about 2-3 ounces.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 4 pounds
Maternity Clothes: maternity tops for the most part, and a combination of maternity/non-maternity pants.I wore maternity jeans for the first time this pregnancy on Sunday. I was kind of sad about it. Aside from my Gap maternity jeans, maternity jeans just make me feel flabby and gross. Trying to be positive about it though, as this is more than likely my last pregnancy. So on the up side, when this pregnancy is over with and I lose my weight, I'll be buying 2 pairs of new Miss Me's... because those thangs make me feel awesome!
Gender: we'll find out in 5 weeks! I. CAN'T. WAIT.
Movement: I've wondered if I have felt little flutters over the past several days. But I tend to confuse flutters for other stomach stuff, so I'm not really sure :) Can't wait to feel those big kicks and punches.
Sleep: It's hit or miss. If I sleep, it's pretty hard, with really weird dreams. If I don't sleep, I am restless, and toss and turn a lot. I am not really able to find a good position to sleep in (I love to sleep on my tummy), so I just kind of try the best I can to sleep and then drink lots of caffeine when I don't :)
Symptoms: Not really anything anymore, for which I am ever so grateful. 
What I miss: sleeping on my tummy, hands down.
Cravings: Still craving Mexican food. I also have a liking for sausage biscuits from McDonald's, which is totally disgusting.This weekend I dreamed about Olive Garden salad, and couldn't get it off my mind. So I had to make a trip there yesterday to indulge in my cravings. I ate two bowls of salad all by myself. Pretty sure I scared my waitress.
Food Aversions: it just depends on the day, and the smell.
Best Moment this week: Having the nausea from my meds go away. I love being able to live a normal day and not feel like I'm about to vomit at any second. Once I hit the second trimester, I really do love being pregnant. Sure, I don't love having to pee every second of the day, or not being able to drink a glass of wine every now and again, but to be able to experience and be a part of God making a little human being inside of me is truly miraculous.
What I am looking forward to: I have an appointment later this week, so I am looking forward to that and to hearing the baby's heartbeat.
