15 Weeks!

How far along? 15 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Loss of 3lbs (gained back one of the 4 lost)

Baby's Fruit Size: Orange

Sleep: Sleeping pretty well, just waking up to pee :)

Best moment this week: Going to Norcal to visit your TKN Aunties and cousins. Also getting to watch cousin Keith get an awesome interception and win his college football game!  

Miss Anything? We went to a Mexican place to eat last week, and a Margarita would have been nice.

Movement: Not yet, lots of pulls and stretches but no flutter yet.

Food cravings/aversions: Not really. I do seem to want sweets more than normal, but I'm trying to avoid them. I am having a hard time choosing water over juice like normal. Maybe you want sugar!? ;)  

Symptoms: I'm feeling great, really happy. A lot of heartburn, but it's not too bad.

Mood: Excited. I love getting to see and hear you on the u/s. I'm so happy that we get them so often. A great perk that I get working at a Doctor's office.

Sex Prediction: Still thinking girl. You were crossing your legs so we didn't get to find out! I know you're stubborn just like your Dad.

Looking forward to: Friday, we get another sneak peak at you. Hopefully this time you will open up those little legs of yours!

At week 15, your baby-to-be stretches her limbs and bends at her elbows. She's getting big enough that you can feel many of these movements.
This week your baby is roughly the size of a small apple or orange. Her bones are continuing to grow and lengthen. While she looks more like a baby, her skin is still thin and translucent with her veins visible.
Your baby is also beginning to grow lanugo, a very fine hair. It will keep growing until around the 26th gestational week of pregnancy.
