15 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
(This picture is from Week 13.  I haven't been so good about taking weekly pictures this time.  That doesn't mean I love you any less, sweet baby!)

How Far Along: 15 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby #2 is the size of an apple (4 in long; 2.5 oz)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 6lbs
Maternity Clothes:  I can no longer zip up my jeans.  I pretty much wear leggings every day on the days I don't work, and I wear scrubs at work.  I can wear non-maternity shirts.
Gender: Still don't know!  We thought we might find out today, but the umbilical cord was between the baby's legs!  She poked & prodded & looked all around for at least 5 minutes, but we still could never get a good shot.  We'll try again at 20 weeks on May 6.
Movement: I usually feel the baby move at least once a day.  I love it!
Sleep: It's hit or miss.  Some nights I only wake up to use the bathroom then am able to go back to sleep, other nights I'm awake for an hour every time I get up.  I have to pee at least twice every night.
What I miss: Not having mood swings.  :)
Cravings: I went to the mall on Saturday ONLY to get a pretzel, so I finally satisfied that craving.  Now it's mostly fruit & just food in general.  I ate everything in sight yesterday.
Symptoms: Just tired all the time.  I try to nap every day I'm home while Adeline naps & I sure miss those naps on the three days a week I'm at work.  I'm still getting headaches & a bloody nose & I have some pretty nasty mood swings.  Sorry, Jon!
Best Moment this week: Getting to see him/her for a long time on the ultrasound screen today.  I didn't care that he/she was being uncooperative.  I was just enjoying watching him/her.
