baby is the size of: an apple
how far along are you: 15 weeks 3 days
what's happening with baby: baby is moving amniotic fluid through the nose and upper respiratory tract. baby's legs are growing longer than her arms, and she can move all those tiny joints and limbs. baby's eyelids are still fused shut, but she can see light. taste buds are forming.
due date: jan 10
maternity clothes: busted out the maternity jeans this weekend. i still fit in my old ones, but these are way more comfortable. i suspect my maternity work pants are not far behind.
best moment this week: had my first biweekly ultrasound on tuesday. the tech said my cervix looks great so far, and is actually a little longer than normal, so even if it does start to shorten, it shouldn't be too much of a problem for me. baby was really groovin during the ultrasound - she could hardly get her to stay still long enough to measure the heart rate! i've got quite a little wiggler in there!
what are you looking forward to: still waiting to get the blood work back from the toxoplasmosis lab
food cravings: spicy and salty.
food/smell aversions: nothing
what do you miss: dippy eggs. mom and i went out to breakfast this morning and i couldn't get my go-to breakfast.
symptoms: this week i experienced round ligament pain for the first time. yeee-ouch!
gender: still thinking girl.
belly button: in. i have a really deep belly button, so i really wonder if it will pop at all.
wedding rings: on
i seem to have developed a cold this week. i feel like crap - congested, runny nose, sneezing, headache, and having a really hard time breathing. after i only slept about 2 hours last night, i called the on-call service for my ob's office. the doctor told me i could take tylenol, tylenol cold, dayquil, or nyquil. she also suggested hot tea and hot showers. i am drinking tea and water like it's my job. hoping this passes quickly.
