Healthy Pregnancy – 15 Weeks

unnamed

How far along? 15 Weeks

Baby Size: An Orange

Weight gain: Not sure this week.

Maternity clothes? I am loving yoga pants, but when I have to wear clothes that button they still fit. By night time even my stretch jeans are a bit uncomfortable so I think I will be in maternity pants within the next week or two.

Belly Button in or out? Partially out, with a little more POP by night. I am sure the belly button will be fully out soon since mine is so big anyway.

Best moment this week: Seeing the nighttime bump! It makes pregnancy feel more real (because the symptoms just are not real enough)!

Miss Anything? I am still missing my full gym routine, but am staying active. I also miss sleeping without being surrounded by 50 pillows.

Movement: I felt a little fluttering this week, but hey maybe it was just gas? It’s a little early, but I would like to believe it is movement.

Food cravings: I am still loving mac and cheese, so I have tried to find healthier brands such as Annie’s. I also worked on making my own version, which I will share below!

Gender: We will likely find out in 4 weeks or so. A lot of friends are saying boy! Any predictions?

Looking forward to: Our next doctor’s appointment next week!

I made a spaghetti squash “macaroni” and cheese this week. The cheeses were a bit strong for my pregnant taste buds, but everyone else who has tried it has liked it! Switch out the cheeses to make a version that is more palatable for you:

Spaghetti Squash "Mac" and Cheese
Spaghetti Squash “Mac” and Cheese

Spaghetti Squash “Mac” and Cheese

Ingredients:

1 Spaghetti Squash

4 Oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese

4 Oz Asiago Cheese

1/3 Cup Mozzarella Cheese

2 TBS Butter

1 TBS Almond Flour

1/3 Cup Almond Milk

Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds. Glaze inside with olive oil and place face down on baking pan. Bake squash at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until fully cooked.

As the squash cools, place a sauce pan over medium heat and add the remaining ingredients. Stir frequently to ensure cheese does not burn. Once the spaghetti squash is cool enough to touch, scoop into a bowl. Pour melted cheese over spaghetti squash and enjoy all of the extra vitamins you will get while eating mac and cheese!
