Pregnancy Update – Week 15

Pregnancy Update – Week 15

Who’s enjoying the beautiful weather we’re having here in Chicago? It seems like everyone in the city has spring fever and they can’t stay away from being out doors. It was 55 on Thursday so I wore flats without socks! <3 I also wore capris while running with CES on Saturday. My white legs need some color!


A big highlight of the week was picking the venue for my baby shower! We decided to go with a restaurant in Evanston called the Farmhouse. It’s an adorable farm-to-table spot with local brews featured amid exposed brick & salvaged decor. I love it and it’s totally my style.


Pregnancy Update – 15 Weeks

How far along? 15 weeks + 0 days

Due date? September 6, 2015

Baby’s size? Baby Larsen is the size of a large orange!

Total weight gain: I’m not sure anymore. I’ve decided to stop weighing myself. I read so many pregnancy blogs and forums and I don’t want to compare myself. My doctor will let me know if she is concerned about anything.

Maternity clothes? Nope, but I signed up for Stitch Fix and my maternity clothes will be arriving March 19. I really hope I at least like one of the outfits they send me.

Stretch marks? No, still using a lot of coconut oil.

Sleep: 8-9 hours.

Best moment this week: Running outside 4x’s this week for a total of 16 miles! Running feels natural again and I couldn’t be happier!

Miss Anything? Running fast.

Movement: No, but my wonderful friend Christina is letting me borrow her Fetal Doppler so I can listen to Baby’s heartbeat. I am obsessed and could listen to it all day. It’s so amazing and crazy that a baby is growing inside of me.

Food cravings: Green grapes!!! I almost ate the whole bag in one sitting.

Green Grapes

Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of gum and sausage.

Gender: TBD, but we’re finding out soon!!!!

Name: TBD

Symptoms: Baby bump is getting bigger and I’ve been getting hormonal headaches.

Belly Button in or out? In.

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody: Happy!

Looking forward to: My next ultrasound on Wednesday!

    • Thanks, Christina! So glad you and Liv have been able to get outside. I’m looking forward to going for a walk with you two!

  3. You can hear Baby Larsen’s heartbeat with a “Fetal Doppler? Wow, technology is awesome! Hopefully your new-found aversion to the smell of sausage will be short-lived! 🙂
