How far along? 15w4d
Due date: August 30th, 2014
Baby is the size of an... apple! And since it's my baby, probably a big honeycrisp apple! Just saying.
Baby's development of the week: Per Babycenter: 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.
Maternity clothes? Definitely pants, but I'm still able to get by with longer tank tops or t-shirts and haven't moved onto 100% maternity just yet.
Sleep: Sleep is made possible thanks to my Snoogle.
Best moment this week: Finally feeling the first little flutters of movement this week. I don't remember feeling movement until a lot later on with Ethan. (I just looked it up on my past updates -- I was 18 weeks along when I first felt Ethan wriggle in there!)
Food cravings: Still no "must have now" cravings, but I am still drawn to red meat. Which grosses me out as much as it satisfies my cravings because I really don't like to have (or feed Ethan) so much red meat. By dinnertime, most other food just seems impossible to swallow.
Food aversions: My dad had a glass of red wine this evening and I couldn't even go near him. The smell made me feel sick to my stomach! But I'm still just fine with food, unlike my last pregnancy.
Baby's Sex: I still completely think it's a girl, but I did reference baby as our boy's name in my head the other day and it made me smile a little. I keep imagining that I think it's a girl and we are surprised that it's a boy, but obviously my priority is just having a healthy little baby regardless of what sex it winds up being!
Baby's Name: Makes my heart go pitter-patter when I think of it (both boy and girl).
And for fun, here's 15 weeks with Ethan:
