14 and 15 wks

Sorry for my lack of posting, I swear I'm going to get back to it! Yesterday marked the 15 week mark. It seems to be going by crazy fast, although my mind has been occupied with a few other things.Around 12 weeks I started feeling completely normal. I rarely feel pregnant. Its hard to know what was the estrogen and progesterone or actual pregnancy that would make me feel waves of nausea.All I know is I'm super thankful for the energy I have and not feeling sick. I still have a food aversion to most chicken.

14 wks (in the morning, pre-breakfast)

15 weeks (at night, post-dinner) Yikes
I have currently gained 3-4lbs (although it looks like much more)

This morning we went in for a routine appointment, they did the blood test that tests for abnormalities. I'm praying we hear nothing back on that. They said if we don't hear from them, then its good news, if not the dr will personally call me. So for the next 7 days I will try not to worry! Ha. She tried to hear the heartbeat once again with the doppler thing, but the baby definitely does not like to cooperate for that, therefore she immediately moved us into and ultrasound room to take a peek at the little nugget. Thankfully all looked well and we could once again see the heart beating. She thinks maybe my uterus is positioned in a weird spot and that's why its hard to ever hear it. We got to see the baby for seriously like 1 minute and it wasn't a super great pic, but we did get to see his/her fingers move. Its always a blessing for me to see the miracle inside of me.

The baby is on the right side. Basically Marchelle (nickname for the baby) is all curled up and you can't really see any of the limbs, but you can see the skull and brain!
On May 30th is our big appointment, but I think we may get to find out a little early on May 18th. I'm so stinking excited I can hardly stand it.
I'm going to put up a poll on the right side so you all can vote on what you think it is!

First- I love marchelle:)! Second, I was hoping so bad ALL day you would find out! I figured you would have let us know if you were telling though. Oh well, the 18th will be here before we know it!

Hi Michelle. I've been reading your blog for about 6 months now and this is my first comment. I just wanted to share how happy I am for you. Your baby bump photos make it all so real, don't they? You look great. Continued best wishes to you and little Marchelle :)
