15 weeks

2nd trimester has been interesting to say the least. I always reassure my patients that most women turn a corner at 14 weeks. I've gone backwards. After brushing my teeth (and tongue) every morning for roughly 32 years it's hard to remember to take caution! Aside from a few rough mornings in the last week I can definitely start to feel my body changing.  I've never been so aware of my uterus in my life. Between the cramping, ligament pain and just general pressure it's a constant reminder that something is growing in there. The female body is incredible.

We scheduled our ultrasound for June. Can't wait to see how much this little one has changed. Brennan says "Mommy, I want a baby brother!" Guess we will see what God has in store for us come fall!! 

I've finally begun to accept the fact that my belly is no longer mine. I will never be one of those mamas with a little basketball belly but I love thinking about my little one getting bigger. We have now graduated to the size of a lemon. Pretty fitting since fresh squeezed lemonade has been my only true pregnancy craving. After taking this photo I found a recipe online for a single glass of fresh squeezed lemonade. Thought I'd share it with you all too.

Single Glass Fresh Lemonade

Ingredients
  • 2 scoops granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • 3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice (I used 1/2 of a large lemon)
  • ¾ cup cold water
  • Ice
Instructions
  1. Stir together the sugar and hot water until the sugar is dissolved
  2. Stir in the lemon juice and cold water
  3. Fill with ice and enjoy!
