15 Weeks

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

My baby bump at 15 weeks from the side:

And from the front:

Total Weight Gain: According to the scale, I lost another 2 lbs this week, putting me down a total of 8 lbs so far.  I have to start gaining weight soon, right?

Movement: I haven't felt anything yet.  It's probably still too early, but occasionally I find myself concentrating really hard looking for those first little flutters.

Boy or Girl? I can't wait to find out!

Food Cravings: Still apples.  I look for good ones with every trip to the grocery store.

How I'm Feeling:  Pretty good overall.  I love having a pregnant belly.  I can eat like a normal person again (or at least as well as I ate before.)  And for the most part, I have my energy back, unless I stay up too late, which is happening a lot lately.  Thank you Olympics.  My only complaint is that since the Little Sprout is squishing everything, I get uncomfortably full after lunch, no matter how little I eat.  I don't mind too much though, it usually doesn't last long before I'm hungry again.

Size of Baby: Navel Orange (4.5 in and 2 to 3 oz)

Baby's Development:  Baby is now constantly practicing breathing, sucking, and swallowing so he or she will be ready to survive after birth.  By now, baby's ears are positioned properly on the sides of the head and the eyes are moving from the side of the head to the front of the face.

Best Part of this Week: It's not baby related, but the Olympics started this week.  I am super excited!  In other news, I feel like I am really starting to look pregnant now, not like I ate too many cookies!

What I'm Looking Forward To: My next appointment is next week.  I love having that confirmation that Baby M is doing well!
