15 Weeks With Baby #4

DATE: March 15, 2013

How far along:
15 Weeks!

Total Weight Gained:
None.  Still in the losing process.

How big is baby?  Baby #4 is about the size of an apple.  He/She is 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs about 2.5 ounces.

How baby is growing
: He/She is busy moving amniotic fluid through the nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in his/her lungs begin to develop. The legs are growing longer than the arms now, and he/she can move all of his/her joints and limbs. Although the eyelids are still fused shut, he/she can sense light. He/She is forming taste buds. (From babycenter.com.)

Maternity Clothes: None. My regular clothes are loose.

Sleep: I'm sleeping fairly well at night, but I do wake up with bad headaches a few mornings a week.  Sometimes, I still feel like I need a daily nap to make it through the day.

Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:
Feeling the baby move. 

Movement: I can feel little flutters when I lay down or sit quietly.

Food Cravings: None. I had luck keeping down red grapes and organic strawberry fruit leather this week.

Food Aversions:

Morning Sickness:
I still have hyperemesis, and there is no sign of it easing any time soon!

We're not finding out! We didn't find out with Dylan, Lexie, and Lily either!

Horrible morning (ALL DAY) sickness, exhaustion (although that is starting to ease), headaches/migraines, bloating,  and irritability.

I started on the treadmill on Monday, after taking a 10 week break from all exercise.  I did a light walk/run combo for 20 minutes a day Monday-Friday. 

What I miss: Being nausea-free.  For sure!

What I'm looking forward to:
My OB appointment on the 27th, hearing the heartbeat again, and scheduling our ultrasound!
