15 weeks

Today, Baby, I am 15 weeks along. Is the morning sickness wearing off? Well, maybe a little bit. Today, though? Not so much. I reeled in my 15th week of pregnancy hunched over the toilet in a sad kind of tribute to my nightmarish 1st trimester that just won't fully quit. It's okay, though, because it's so worth it. I'll live off of Saltines and Ginger Ale as long as I need to. Bigger picture!

Bigger picture, bigger baby! Baby is approximately the size of a naval orange today! That is a huge jump from last week's lemon. According to the professionals, I should be remembering that I need my sleep (check!) and I'm probably finding it uncomfortable to fall asleep. Check times ten. Thank goodness for my Snoogle and my ultra patient husband who puts up with my blanket pulling and pillow shoving and fussing until I get comfortable enough to actually drift off to sleep.

They say I should feel you moving, Baby, in just a couple of weeks. I can't wait!

Baby's head is now resting on his/her nicely formed neck. He/she is beginning to grow eyebrows and eyelashes this week. Also this week, he/she is beginning to grow hair on his/her head! (I am already anticipating one hairy, hairy baby.) Even with eyelids fused shut, Baby is able to sense light. His/her eyes and ears look like eyes and ears this week. Baby is practicing swallowing and may even be hiccuping soon. He/she is busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. His/her legs are growing longer than his/her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs.

This week, I still think Baby is a boy. The rest of the world? They think it's a girl all the way.

  3. Ha ha, hiccups were something I liked least about pregnancy. It was such a strange feeling for my tummy to jump. :)

    I think you're having a boy. Momma's intuition is very rarely wrong.
