15 weeks

How Far Along: 15 weeks

Size of baby: 4 inches, 2.5 oz - the size of a Naval Orange. (that's big!) :)

Baby is busy moving amniotic fluid through its nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in its lungs begin to develop. The baby's legs are growing longer than the arms now, and can move all of its joints and limbs. Although its eyelids are still fused shut, they can sense light.

Maternity Clothes: I bought some work pants from O.ld Navy and a pair of jeans. Still waiting for them to come in the mail. My work pants fit today, but may not fit tomorrow. I'm starting to feel a little uncomfortable though. I think I'm in the "in-between" stage.

Weight Gain: As of Tuesday, I'm up 4 lbs.

Belly: Here is where I will be posting belly shots. I still have to take one for 15 weeks.

Stretch Marks: None so far. Linea nigra is getting darker and I've noticed that I'm starting to get a little peach fuzz on my belly.

Sleep: I'm still sleeping on my stomach, but am starting to feel a little discomfort in doing so. So to the left side it is.

Best Moment of the Week: Hearing the heartbeat at the OB on Monday. Even though I've been hearing it at home, this is the first time I've heard it at the office. It was in the 160s.

Movement: Nope. I can't wait!

Symptoms: Headaches and a little round ligament pulling. Man does that hurt!

Food cravings: No more consistent cravings, but when I hear about something someone ate, I want it and want it then. A few days ago I wanted nachos like nobody's business. :)

Gender: The closer it gets, the more I want to know. I still have about a month before we can find out.

What I Miss: Nothing in particular.

What I'm Looking Forward To: Looking a little more pregnant than just fat. Feeling the baby move!!!

Weekly Wisdom: Drink water, water, water. It helps with headaches, constipation and overall function. (This is not from me, but from C. He is on my case about making sure I drink enough water.)

Milestones: 15 weeks - it's a milestone. Really, every week is a milestone!

Emotions: I am still weepy. But really only watching movies or commercials. But it comes on FAST!
