15 Weeks (January 24, 2012)
How Far Along: 15 Weeks
Size of baby: According to babycenter.com the baby is about the size of a apple (mind you, our baby measured larger then the estimated 2 inches at our 10 weeks appt--I may or may not be giving birth to a toddler!). This is what babycenter.com has to say about Gummy Bear's journey:
How your baby's growing:
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.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I've gained 12 lbs, as of my OB appt last week. I worry that it is too much but my OB assured me that it is all good and to just relax, lol.
Maternity Clothes: Yup, aside from sweat pants almost everything I wear is maternity. Still need to get to the store to get some maternity scrub pants because my regular ones leave a nice indentation around my big 'ol baby belly!
Gender: No idea. Hubby swears up and down it's a girl and one of the girls I work with swears up and down it's a boy--we'll find out on Feb 10. I do have nursery themes and names picked out for each sex!
Movement: Nope, not yet, but I'm excited for that to happen.
What I miss: Nothing really.
Sleep: Ok, I am getting uncomfortable and flip from side to side...often!
Symptoms: My main symptom is my hyper sensitive gag reflex. If I cough I gag--it's disgusting!
Cravings: Nothing lately, I am trying to eat healthier but it isn't working as well as I'd like it too.
Best Moment this week: Getting a full night of uninterrupted sleep, I think I was too tired to wake up and pee, lol.
What I am looking forward to: The main thing I am looking forward to is finding out the baby's sex, I can't wait to find out if it is a little girl or a boy!
