15 weeks

This week, our baby can sense light through its fused eyelids and move all of its joints.  The picture in the book blew me away!  Our baby looks like a little baby now.  I had no idea how much it had grown.


After looking at this, maybe I shouldn't be so surprised!  Ha!


  • Baby's size:  4 inches from crown to rump, about the size of an apple, and weighing 2 1/2 ounces

  • My weight gain this month:  4 pounds.  My watch is fitting loosely, so I'm wondering.  I won't get on a scale until my next checkup.  Brian says I need to eat more because I've been having dizzy spells between meals.  I feel like all I do is eat.

  • Clothes:  maternity pants and shirts; Brian's t-shirts at night (my favorite)

  • Cravings:  SWEET ICED TEA!  I haven't had that in forever.  I'm also starting to like veggies more.   

  • Aversions:  seafood-I put a crab puff in my mouth at mom's night out last week, not knowing what it was, and almost threw up right there.  

  • How I'm feeling:  still throwing up once or twice a day.  I'm over it.  It is going to happen, so let it happen.  Poor Harper runs in the bathroom with me, but what am I to do??  I'm also having some round ligament pain already, which was pretty bad last time.  I'm going to try to find a good maternity support band for that.  


  • My favorite thing this week:  Seeing how BIG and human the baby looks (according to the book and web).  I'm not looking ahead like I did with Harper, so I was surprised.  This is going to sound silly, but I'm also thrilled that I packed up all of my non-maternity clothes.  It was just a mess trying to sort through everything, and now getting dressed is a lot less stressful.  At least one of us is cute for fall...
