How far along: 15 weeks
Maternity clothes: No, but I love my VS leggings!
Sleep: Have been sleeping pretty well the past few nights...just getting up to pee around 3:30am, but that's become the norm!
Best moment(s) of the week: Had a great weekend at home with my mom, dad, younger brother and Molly! Had some great mom-made meals, dad took us cross country skiing, watched some DVR'd episodes of Ellen, hit up Buy Buy Baby, Hobby Lobby & Crate and Barrel. Fun Fun Fun!
Movement: Can't feel it yet.
Food cravings/aversions: I swear I'm not craving anything yet...but vinegar-y things always taste really good - pickles, salad dressings, asian salad I made last night...
Morning sickness: Let bygones be bygones!
Symptoms: Nothing new to report.
Labor signs: Way too soon.
Belly button in or out: Definitely still in.
What I miss: Nothing really.
What I'm looking forward to: Next baby appointment is on Monday. I don't think anything super exciting is happening at this appointment, but another appointment down means progress!
Size and growth of our baby:
Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces. 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.")
