15 weeks

Well, I'm 15 weeks now, and the little one is approximately the size of an apple or a navel orange, depending on who you talk to.  My morning sickness seems to be mostly gone, though I still seem to be needing more sleep and naps.  I've been pretty much crashing on the weekends, without the energy to do much.
My stomach seems to be staying settled much better than it did even a week ago, for which I'm grateful.  It's nice to not have to eat all the time, especially since I seem to be starting on some food aversions.  Certain things just don't sound or taste at all good.  For example, on Monday evening Kristi made a lovely meal of soft tacos.  I made one, took one bite, and realized I wouldn't be able to eat the ground beef (which I normally enjoy).  So Craig ate the rest of that one and I had one without meat.  It's not all beef - I had beef pad thai for lunch, and that was fine.  We'll see how this develops.

That's me, still not sure that it's sunk in that we're going to have a kid.

Since I've been eating more normally I don't seem to have gained any more weight in the last couple weeks, which is fine since I gained a little more than expected the first trimester, what with the constant eating .  During the second trimester the recommended extra calorie amount is about 300 calories a day, which isn't actually that much.
It looks like we're going to take a trip up to South Bend this weekend to go to the maternity store at the mall to try to find some pants.  I have a bunch of clothes I'm borrowing from a friend, which is awesome, but she's shorter than I am so the pants aren't quite as long as I like.  I haven't been able to find any pants that work in the local stores here.  I hate shopping for pants at the best of times, so it should be interesting.  I'm hoping to find one pair of jeans and one pair of black pants for work, and that should hold me with the other stuff I have.  Luckily, by the time I'm REALLY showing it will be much warmer and I'll be able to wear some stuff I have that is not winter-appropriate.
At the end of the month we're going to have a tour of the birth center where we hope to deliver if all goes well.  It should be quite interesting.  We'll also schedule our childbirth classes.  Of course, with our due date we fall right between the spring and late spring schedules, so we'll have to figure out which works best.  I guess I should be grateful to have a choice.  =)
