15 Weeks!

How far along? 15 Weeks!

Baby's size? Baby Summers is the size of a navel orange! About 4 inches and 2 ounces.

Weight Gain? I broke down and weighed myself this week to see if I was making any progress and according to the scale yesterday I gained about 4 pounds... I'm yet to check today to make sure that is right, but I won't let it bother me and I won't know for sure til my next appointment.

Maternity clothes? Regular tops though my t-shirts tend to hit right at mid tummy, (I do have a few maternity tops) and I have a pair of amazing maternity pants, that are in the wash :( so I'm stuck using the freakin' belly band today which is unfair, the band hits the belly just right that it makes the belly feel so bad.

Stretch marks? No.

Belly button in or out? Still in, but its starting to widen out and open up more.

Sleep? Some nights are definitely better than others, I bought an amazing body pillow last night for my hips and I slept perfectly for quite a few hours I'm sure, but woke up with a sick tummy and sleep after that was nearly out of the question.

Foods I am loving? Nearly anything, yesterday was a 1/2 chicken soft taco with HOT sauce. It was amazing till my sister's dog stole the last few bites....

Foods I am hating? The smell of anything.

Best moment this week? This is going to be a long one. The last couple weeks I've had to take about 3 Zofrans a day, and it was time to get a refill, my bottle said I got 10 more, meaning for the next 12 days I could only take 1 pill a day, I was horrified, I'd never done that before, well Wednesday I made it through with 1 pill, but Thursday morning came and I was holding on to the sink for dear life -- yes the sink, when its just stomach acid after a long night I can't dare get close to the toilet-- well Thursday night I went to get a refill, checked the bottle and they gave me 30!!! Meaning I can take 2 a day most days but if I really need it I can take 3!! It was a wonderful moment. It's also a wonderful feeling to have my husband want to see my belly first thing when I get home, and for him to lay his head on it and talk to Baby Summers.

Movement? I can't feel any yet, though I try to relax and wait for it. Can't wait!!

Symptoms? Nausea, vomiting -- not as much though-- sore boobs, aching legs when I sit down, acne, dry skin, forgetful --- very forgetful.

I could definitely notice the tummy more this week, I can't squeeze through things as easily as I could before.

Gender? No clue! Though if things go as we think/hope they will go we will get a sneak peek on the 27th!!! Only 9 days away!

What I miss? Nothing! I love being pregnant!

What I'm looking forward to? Gender and movement!!

Weekly Wisdom: Sit back and relax as much as you can, it really makes the days go by better.

Milestones: I am over a third of the way through!

Emotions: All over the place for sure, I started feeling better then worse again, then found energy but didn't want it... thrilled to be pregnant but it still seems so unreal to me. I feel awful thinking that its not real, that its just pretend, but for some reason it still is yet to really hit me that there is a baby in there, its mine and will be here in a little less than 6 months!

Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl! (Don't be too disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down your baby's sex depends on the clarity of the picture and on your baby's position. He or she may be modestly curled up or turned in such a way as to "hide the goods.")
