15 weeks

Few thoughts at 15 weeks:
  • OMG I'm 15 weeks pregnant.
  • Round ligament pain. Damn. If I didn't know to expect it - I would be a bit panicked about the sharp pains I feel when I twist a certain way. Ouch.
  • It's official - I look pregnant. It's like the top (fat) part of my belly has merged with the bottom (baby) part and I look pregnant. Guess I need more than 2 maternity shirts.
  • They aren't lying when they say you feel better in the second trimester. I'm no where near as tired and I've been either walking or going to the gym most days.

In totally randomness - I saw my OB at my favorite sandwich shop yesterday! I've only met with her once, and she recognized me. Makes me like her even more... even though at my next appointment (a week from today) is with one of her partners. They want you to see all 3 doctors, in case yours is not on call when you go into labor, which makes sense.

Oh - and this weekend - Aaron and I are getting a tour of the birth center at the hospital. Which is exciting to me. I know it may seem a little early - but if we don't like it - I want to change earlier rather than later. They just redesigned the whole thing - so I'm sure we will like it just fine.

Once you're past the scariness of 1st tri, it seems like every week brings a OMG, I can't believe I'm ____ weeks! Time just suddenly starts flying by, and I'm loving every minute of it.

girl it's not too early to visit the birth center. i work in the hospital where mine were delivered so i knew the unit already BUT as soon as i started my 2nd trimester i pre registered ........ way too early......... but after the long road of getting knocked up -- we can do whatever the heck we want whenever the heck we want. right? sam

Yay for looking pregnant! That makes things so much easier, in my opinion...people finally seem to feel your pain when you actually look pregnant. And you are so right about the second trimester being completely different. It took me a little longer this time to start feeling well, but I feel SO much better since around week 14 or 15. Oh, and it's definitely not too early to see the birthing center. You need to be informed early, and get all the things out of the way now that you can!!
