Weekly Pregnancy Update – 15 Weeks

How far along: 15w0d

Baby’s size: 4.57 inches, 3.53 oz., about the size of an avocado.

Total weight gain: Up 4.8 lbs. from egg retrieval as I gained another 2 lbs. last week.  I’m going to blame the Pokey Stix 🙂

Maternity clothes: Same as last week, still in a mixture of regular and maternity pants, but most of my shirts and sweaters still fit me.

Stretch marks: Nothing to get too excited about, nothing new anyway!

Sleep: I’m still trying to sleep on my stomach, and so far I can still get away with it!  Haven’t been tossing and turning as much lately, which is wonderful!

Symptoms/Feeling: Still taking just a half of a Unisom each night, but stopped the B6 and feeling good.  Maybe in another week I’ll try to stop the Unisom again and see how I feel.  I have lots of pulling and strange feelings in my abdomen, not cramps, just interesting feelings.

Best moment of this week: Hearing friends say my baby bump is cute!  Although I’m still convinced it is way too soon to feel this large!

15 WeeksMiss anything: Breathing.  Still feeling really stuffy.  I purchased a humidifier for our bedroom yesterday, maybe that will help!

Movement: Still too early, but looking forward to it!

Food cravings: Having noticed any recently.  I would say I craved the pokey stix, but being I ate them all weekend, I’m not sure I want to see them again anytime soon.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Brushing my teeth is still making me gag, and getting down my huge prenatal vitamins.  Otherwise I’m good.

Have you started to show yet: Yep, see picture above 🙂

Gender: Girl

Labor signs: Good God no!

Belly button in or out: In.

Wedding rings on or off: On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy as I got a ton of Christmas shopping, and wrapping, finished this weekend.  I’m about out of time though, as this Saturday we are meeting with out builder, and the following Saturday is our celebration with Eric’s family!  AHHHHH.

Looking forward to: Saturday’s meeting with the builder.  I need to know how long we’re going to be in our current home so I can plan for baby!  Oh, and my plans for cleaning the office out didn’t happen.  But I figure Christmas shopping has a more immediate deadline 🙂

Purchases for baby:  I purchased the car seat, in black, but it’s back-ordered.  It says it’s in stock, but that’s a lie!  Should be here in a few weeks!

Eric’s reactions:  Eric has been in Vegas since last Thursday.  I have a feeling he is gonna be a bit shocked when he sees my tummy, as I swear I wasn’t hardly showing a week ago!  And look what he purchased for baby!

  1. The onesie Eric bought is adorable and so sweet 😀. I too am dealing with constant congestion. The humidifier at night helps. I also caved and bought breathe right strips. They help me sleep. If it were socially acceptable to wear one at work, I would.
