15 Weeks


How far along: 15 weeks.  

How big is baby?: A navel orange this week. 4.5 inches in length and 2-3 ounces. How has something this small changed my body so much?

Total weight gain: I gained almost a pound this week. Bringing my total gain to almost 4 pounds.

Maternity clothes: Still squeezing into my prepregnancy clothes... I'm avoiding buying anything new until I have to. I would hate to buy a bunch of clothes and then outgrow them in a week or two. I'm just pulling out clothes that are bigger and using safety pins, elastics, or the BeBand to hold up my unbuttoned pants. 

Best moment of the week:
 A student asked me this week where the fluid around the baby when when it was born. I told her it came out. Her response? She wanted to know if it came shooting out of my belly button when it was time for the baby to be born! I had to laugh 

Food cravings: Lots of Cheerios! I mean like 1 1/4 boxes eaten just this week alone. I've been craving Diet Pepsi (regular diet, not the caffeine free crap) this week too, so I let myself have a glass tonight... SOOOOOO good. 

Food aversions:  Nothing again this week, food and I are pretty good friends right now. 

Symptoms: Still tired, some trouble sleeping at night. Still getting that uncomfortable pain on my lower abdomen that feels both tight and sore. Nothing new this week.  

Movement: Nothing yet, but I keep waiting and hoping (though I know it often doesn't happen until week 20 with the first... a girl can still have hope) 

Gender: We find out in 39 days... can't wait! Until then, you should vote in my poll on the right to let me know what you think it is.

What I'm looking forward to: My next appointment in just 10 long short days. I also can't wait to feel this little alien move!

What I miss: Not too much... I miss sleeping on my back, sleeping on my side makes my back and hip sore

Next appointment: February 1st. Can't wait to hear the little pitter-patter of this baby's racing heart.

  1. I am having my first and I felt a fluttery weird feeling (the baby) at about 16 weeks. See what happens next week. :)
