Weeks 15 & 16

Week 15
3/12/2012 - 3/18/2012
Belly is starting to pop a little!  I think such a momentous occasion calls for another undies shot, don't you?
Milestones: I bought some new maternity jeans this week!  No more holding my pants together with a rubber band (and inadvertently flashing my underwear to all my coworkers).
Size of Meatball: About 4 inches long, or the size of an apple.
Symptoms: Although I can tell I'm starting to slowly feel better, this week I was battling a few other illnesses.  So it was a smorgasbord of crumminess.
Food cravings: Still English muffins covered in applesauce.  And cheese.  Mmmm...cheese...
Food aversions: Coffee.  Ken had to change clothes after a Starbucks run one day.  Also, any and all meat.  Especially the "c" word (chicken).
Exercise: Nothing.
Weight gain: I actually GAINED 0.6 pounds this week!  Total change is a loss of 10.2 pounds.
Week 16
3/19/2012 - 3/25/2012
I got me some fresh mountain air this weekend!
Followed by bubbles in the bathtub (complete with rubber ducky thermometer to make sure I don't cook meatball).
Milestones: Baby is kicking out the walls in there!  And really loves (or hates) The Hunger Games movie.  There was lots of action going on in my ute in the theater.  I think it might have been from all the rumbling from the surround system.
Size of Meatball: About 4.5 inches long, or the size of an avocado.  Is it weird that I've been craving guacamole this week?  I feel sort of like a cannibal.
Symptoms: For the first time in over 3 months, I woke up on Friday morning feeling BRILLIANT!  It was so marvelous.  It lasted until Saturday night, and then the nausea came back, but in a much milder form.  Other symptoms include fatigue, dizzy spells, and itchy skin.  I'm walking around scratching myself like a meth head.
Food cravings: Chips with guacamole, baked potatoes, eggs benedict, and french toast.  So basically, unhealthy crap.
Food aversions: Still coffee and meat.  I think I'm ruined for coffee forever.
Exercise: A swim and a fabulous snowshoe in the mountains.
Weight gain: I gained again this week.  No surprise, since I ate like a total pig.  But 3.2 pounds!  In one week!  Net loss is 7 pounds.
