15 Weeks

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!


  1. Hope babe cooperates! Can't wait to hear. My guess is BOY. And you're still looking great!
