How far along? 15w1d
How big is baby? Navel orange! 2.5 ounces and 4 inches long; his proportions are becoming more normal, as his legs are now longer than his arms. Babe is a wiggly thing, enjoying full use of his limbs and joints, and he's probably experiencing hiccups for the first time.
Physical differences from last week? I weighed 113.0 this morning; which is only a half pound gain from last week (yay!), and an overall gain of 3.4 pounds. I've worn the belly band all week and even a few maternity shirts. Belly button is shallow. I've been buttering my belly like crazy in hopes of making my stretch marks a little less obvious. This is the first week that I'm actually showing! Hoorah!!!
How I'm feeling? I have a lot of energy and some occasional dizziness. My thyroid problem with Lucy left me exhausted and irritable, so this is a much appreciated change of pace. Actually followed my diet all week AND walked every night before bed. ::pats self on back:: Craved chocolate (which I resisted) and these stuffed mushrooms (which I literally made a special trip to the store for, and then devoured the whole batch)! I wish all of my cravings were low carb.
What's been on my mind? The nursery. Mostly when I should start painting and shopping. Also thinking about buying a new glider, kinda like this:
What I'm looking forward to? Anatomy scan TOMORROW! Have you made your gender guess?
Best moment this week? Finally starting to show!
