15 Week Survey

 How Far Along: 15 weeks

Size of babyYour 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.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm sticking with 3-5 lbs right now

What I miss: Nothing really besides feeling normal in the mornings

Sleep: Nothing new on this home front. Still trying to get used to the snoogle, it's too high up to rest my head on so I like to rest it under my stomach and in between my legs.

Symptoms: Well, I still don't feel great in the mornings, but I have another theory about this morning sickness. I think it might be going away or gone. I think my problem is with the foods I am eating. I eat ego waffles before I shower and I am starving already on the way to work and when I get here I have to eat again. If I don't my stomach doesn't like being empty and I think I am mistaking this feeling for morning sickness when I really need to eat better and more substantial foods. I tried this morning eating some fiber one cereal in the car on the way to work (not a good idea by the way, not enough red lights to eat and drive). It seems to be holding me off better and I feel pretty good. I am ready for lunch already though.

Cravings: I really want a Willy's burrito. Their adobe chicken is awesome and is way better than Moe's chicken, it's just not close by. I might have to travel to one and take a long lunch one day (Maybe Tuesdays lunch Leah & Lacey?) I am also going to whole foods for lunch today and I am excited for the hot and cold bar (thanks shell!)

Best Moments this week: Possibly starting to feel better, I don't want to jinx it, but I do feel more normal so hopefully we are on our way!

What we are looking forward to:  I am already looking forward to Labor Day weekend, even though we still have 1 weekend in the way. David has no classes that weekend so I am excited to spend time together. We also are furniture shopping for our master bedroom!
No pic today, nothing new has been going on. I am still waiting for a more substantial bump to grow. Next Friday is our heartbeat appointment so I'm anxious to make sure everything is going well. Pin It
