15 Week Bump Date

How Far Along: 15 weeks + 2 days.
 (You can check out my 22 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

Size of baby: (According to 15 weeks: Your baby is about the size of an apple. The future apple of your eye now weighs about 2 1/2 ounces and is 4 inches long from head to bottom.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Around 4lbs. gained.

Maternity Clothes: I'm wearing all maternity pants now and a mixture of maternity shirts and regular shirts. I did some maternity clothes shopping over the weekend which was fun. :-)

Gender: We found out Monday that we are having a little baby GIRL! We are so excited! (You can read about how we found out here.)

Movement:  I think I've felt a few flutters here and there. Can't wait to feel it more often though.

Food Cravings: None yet. Just whatever sounds good at the time.

What I miss: Nothing at this point.

Sleep: Sleeping fine other than getting up a couple times to go to the bathroom.

Symptoms: Frequent trips to the bathroom and still pretty tired most days, but most other symptoms are fading away, thank goodness. My gag reflex is still so sensitive. It seems like when I was pregnant with Jackson it was really only sensitive in the first trimester, but with this pregnancy it's still very sensitive at 15 weeks. Brushing my teeth is a chore and not very fun.

Best Moment this week: Doing some shopping over the weekend and then finding out that we're having a girl Monday evening!

What I am looking forward to: Feeling more movement and hearing this sweet girls heartbeat at my next doctor's appointment on the 25th. I'm also looking forward to doing some shopping for baby girl, coming up with a name and planning her nursery. :-)
