14 Weeks... or is it 15?

A few things:
1) I am a HORRIBLE blogger. I have not posted anything here since the beginning of August when I was having some complications.
2) I could have sworn I was further along... I thought I was going to be 16 weeks on Monday. And yet my ticker says I'll be 15 weeks. Is it terrible that I don't know how far along I am?
Yes, yes it is.
Am I a horrible pregnant mother?
Do I care?
A little.

I have another appointment coming up on October 7th... just some routine blood work to follow up on the possibility of chromosomal abnormalities. Nothing to worry about yet, so I'm not going to stress about it.

I'm really trying to update this blog frequently so that I have something to look back on. I've just been so tired lately, it's been difficult to keep up.

I'm going to steal those popular weekly surveys and start posting them. I'll also update with belly pics.

Here is what I believed to be 15 weeks, but what my ticker is claiming as 14. :::::sigh::::: I suppose I'll ask the doctor on Thursday. How the fuck did I mess THAT up?!

How far along? 14 1/2 or 15 1/2 weeks... I'll let you know when I find out (good lord that sounds awful).
Total weight gain: 2 pounds
Maternity clothes? No... but the belly band has become my BFF.
Sleep: Horrible. I have to pee all the time and I am used to sleeping on my stomach, which is no longer possible... because if I try I will literally piss all over myself. Also, I get woken up by ligament pain and fluttering at all sorts of weird hours.
Best moment this week: Chai Tea Latte... that's pretty much the best moment EVERY week.
Gender: 99.99% of people are saying girl... I am still hoping for a boy (though I will be totally happy with ANYTHING healthy, of course).
Movement: Flutters and phantom kicks.
Labor Signs: No, thank God.
Belly Button in or out? In and still pierced! :)
What I miss: Not worrying about peeing when I laugh hard. Actually... not worrying about EVERYTHING.
What I am looking forward to: Finding out the sex.
Weekly Wisdom: Macaroni with cheese, peas and a can of tuna fish (lay off me, I've had one can every two weeks which the doctor says is perfectly fine :P) is great topped with whipped cream.

Hello there :) Well as many others I am glad that everything is ok with you :) I bet everyone worried sick because you were so silent :D
Sending more positive thoughts your way!

Yay! You're back :) I was worried since we hadn't received any news from you in awhile.

Okay, 1) you are sexy as all get out. 14.5 weeks or 15.5 weeks... you look FANTASTIC either way. 2) I will continue to send positive thoughts your way for a healthy and happy baby, and 3) How does that work with the belly button ring? I was always curious (also because I have one). Can you keep it in until the birth? Doesn't the belly button pop out at some point (clearly I have never delivered a baby before, LOL!).
