15 Weeks



How far along? 15 Weeks
Maternity clothes? My goal was to not wear a single maternity anything until 15 weeks and I honestly didn't need any so far. Is you can tell I am definitely growing but I could still do up my jeans and shirts fit just fine- other than showing off what others will think is my lovely muffin top. However just 2 days ago I woke up and my pants all the sudden wouldn't button. Just like that. Overnight. So I am officially wearing the hair-tie around the button of my pants.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: If I am asleep I am sound asleep but I have been waking up around 1:00am almost every other night and not being able to go back to sleep.
Miss Anything? I am craving cookie dough. Not the kind you can make that wont poison you but the kind with raw eggs in it. Yeah I'm resisting, barley.
Movement: Every so often I think Ill feel the baby move but I am not sure yet.
Food cravings: Milk.
Gender: Ryan and I are officially in the middle. We were so certain before now but for some reason we are both now thinking it could be the opposite of what we have thought all along. So we have no idea. The unknown is driving us mad. We are so set on 2 names. 1 for a girl and 1 for a boy and we are just anxious to know what we can actually call this little one.
Labor Signs: No but I have been having really weird cramps. Agh. They hurt.
Symptoms: I wonder if this will seriously keep changing every week. It seems something new comes up and when I look it up online its normal when pregnant. I have been waking up pretty regularly with bloody noses and this entire week I have been having a major headache that lasts all evening. Its so bad I cant do anything but lay down and push on my temples. again apparently these are all normal when pregnant.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: This week I have been sooo happy. Thinking about this little person. Thinking about Makenzie. Thinking about Ryan. I am trying to remember how simple life is and how all those hard decisions really are just second to my family. and my energy has been back some days so its always nice to be able to do things.
Looking forward to: Finding out the sex of the baby!!!!

Okay friends... We have been debating when to find out the sex of the baby. At first we said right at 15 weeks we are going in and finding out what we are having. Then we said well lets save some money and just wait until our 20 week ultrasound. and now we are both just so anxious to find out that I am not sure if we will make it 5 more weeks. If you know nothing else about me know I am absolutely the most impatient person in the world. I cant wait for anything. I am not a huge fan of surprises and I just want everything asap. So having the option to know what we are having but waiting is taking every last bit of energy out of me. We will see how long we wait. I'm not putting any bets on a time frame. We will just take it one day at a time I guess. BUT I am so anxious to know what you think. Is it a BOY or a GIRL?
I am doing a giveaway for a special person. Just leave a comment with your guess and when we find out ill draw a name of someone who guess right and you will get a wonderful gift!!! Who doesn't love free stuff?
So do you want to know what you will win?

A super cute Pillowcase dress! Okay so I know not everyone has a girl but you can always gift it to someone. The material isn't the same as what is pictured above. It will be a surprise but I promise it will be darling. I hope everyone has a wonderful week and good luck guessing...
BOY or GIRL?!!

You really look great! My guess is that Mackenzie will send you a baby sister. I have a 10 months old daughter, I would love love love to put her in that cute dress (would pay for overseas shipping of course if I win). Wishing you all the best for the next 25 weeks!

Kelli Krueger said...

I'm so exited for you and Ryan! I'm going to guess boy! I have a little girl named Ryann (pronounced Ryan) who will look fabulous in that dress! :)

Twirdles said...

i think it's a girl

sarah.baldino said...

My guess is Boy!! And my guess in based on science. Male sperm are much faster swimmers than female sperm! But female sperm are much stronger and live longer. So if you are inseminated the day you are ovulating, you are more likely to have a boy. If you are inseminated a day or two before you ovulate, all the male sperm will most likely have died off, so you are more likely to have a girl. Of course this is not 100%. Some women have a high Ph level, and this can kill most of the male sperm before they even have a chance to get to the egg. But I'm still gonna go with BOY!! Good luck!!

Kellie Staats said...

Everyone guess girl for us. I knew it was a girl. I even went out and bought girl clothes. Boy were we ever wrong! But, I'm going to guess GIRL for you!! :)

Cari Rose said...

Im going to guess a baby girl! You look as cute as a button :) ( I lost my 7 month old baby daughter Kamdyn almost 6 years ago in an accident.. 11 months later I found out I was pregnant and we were blessed when with another baby girl,Payton..we make sure Payton knows she has a big sister in heaven. It is hard for her to understand and alot of the time she asks "is Kamdyn ever going to come out of the sky so we can play?" I promise you will find joy again :) The pain never goes away,just like in your last post..you just learn to live that life.. Lots of love from Ashland Ky!!! ~ cari ~

Megan said...

Hi Kendra,

I have been reading your blog for a long time, but I don't comment usually. I have to tell you though how excited and happy I am for you and Ryan and your new little life! I had been praying so hard for you to get pregnant, you are the best Mom! This new little one is so lucky to have you. That being said, I'm guessing GIRL! At first I thought for sure boy, but I've got a feeling it's a little girl! Congratulations!!

Robyne said...

Boy :)

Wendy said...

Ok so seeing your little belly now tells me that this is a baby girl. You seem to be carrying high. I also wanted to tell you that the cramps are really normal as the little one stretches to make room for him/herself in there. It is ligament stretching or something like that. I also had terrible hormone headaches throughout my pregnancies. It is so fun growing a baby most of the time, but some of the stuff can be downright unpleasant. Thankfully we get the adorable sweet pea at the end of the nine months to make it all worth it!

Wendy said...

I forgot to add that I found out gender with all four of my babies. There is absolutely no way I could wait and I wanted a name and to pick out clothes and to decorate nurseries! I would find out as soon as I could LOL

Auntie EM said...

BOY OH BOY!! Yes, I think the baby is a BBBBOOOOYYYYY. Besides that, we need more boys in our family and Braxton and Easton need a new friend to play with, don't you think? Either way, can't hardly wait and I will be thrilled for you no matter what!!!

This lurking grandma guesses girl. No reason, just thinking of my 6 I had 2 boys then 2 girls, then another girl and another boy. My logic is weird I know. You are so blessed. But don't you already know that. Blessings

Kennedy Klan said...

*BOY* I'm sticking with my original gut feeling the day you said you were expecting! :o) So excited for you to find out for sure!! Ok I have a question, if you are so not into surprises (its ok I am not either) Then how did Ryan propose to you? Was it a surprise for you or no?? :) Just thought I would ask

Tracy said...

Hi Kendra!

SO excited for you guys and to find out for sure what you're little precious one is!
I am guessing it's another sweet GIRL!!

Alerie said...

I'm guessing boy, but only because I'm expecting a boy!! I can't wait to find out what you are having. With my first 2 I waited until my anatomy ultrasound (18 weeks with the first and 19 weeks with the second). This time we wanted to find out before Christmas so we could tell our families as a Christmas present so we went to a place at 15 weeks. We found out it was a boy (our first 2 our girls) and my husband was so excited, he couldn't wait the week to tell everyone at Christmas. haha!! So we ended up telling everyone that day. Anyway, sometimes you can go to an ultra sound school and they will do it much cheaper than the places that are specifically for baby ultra sounds. Just thought I would let you know in case you guys have a place like that, cause I know it gets hard for me to wait too. It is such a fun part of pregnancy!!

Alerie said...

ps - you look so cute pregnant!!

Danyal said...

I think it will be a boy :)

Mari said...

ebony said...

It's a boy!!

...all of us said...

I've been reading your blog for some time now but I've never commented. My parent's lost their daughter (my sister) before I was I born. I was the first born afterwards so I was lucky enough to get her name ;) My sisters changed their middle names once they got married so their middle names are our maiden names. Not me....my name is too special!!! I can't wait to follow your blog until ALL of your kids are growing like weeds.

BOY!

Dean and Rachel said...

i just found out im having a boy! my guess is boy for u too. we went in at 15.5 weeks and after an hr and a half they still couldnt tell. he was in a tiny ball with legs crossed. i was so so disappointed. i would wait until 17 weeks. they grow so much even in a week. there was a huge difference at 19 weeks snd they could tell right away. guess it depends on the babies position most of all. good luck. cant wait

The Mueller Family5 said...

Kendra, comparing your pregnancy with the 3 of mine, I am going to guess GIRL. I base it mostly on the fact that you are craving strawberries & I craved berries with my girls and veggies with my boy. Very technical way of choosing, huh? :) Good luck!

Lauren said...

Nausea and headaches?.......hands down girl!!!?... But that's just because my girl gave me those symptoms : )

Can't wait to hear!

Rebecca said...

Im saying boy.

And btw, I just had triplets. You absolutely do NOT look like you are having a trio. By 16 weeks I couldnt see my feet. I had to stop wearing my rings, had to have help getting up and yes I even had to wear those incontinence pads because I trickled often. I was afraid of flat out peeing my pants.

The Hunsaker's EST. 2009 said...

Kendra,

You are amazing, your strength is proven with each day, I love how open,emotional, and thankful you are! You are only human and I am gratful you are not afraid to express your thoughts and fears!! I am truely thanful there are people like yourself to help everyone through their trials and to give a better understanding on everything! You continue to amaze me! I Love this quote from none other than Winnie the Pooh, "If there ever comes a day when we cant be together, Keep me in your heart, I will stay there forever" It is perfect for anyone and anything they are going through!! P.s. I think it is definitely another GIRL!!! Congrats to you and the very excited Ryan!
