baby #2: week 15 (adjusted time is 18 weeks)

15 Weeks Pregnant
july 22-28

what has been going on this week: daycare was closed, so azalea spent lots of time with grandparents, dinner + shopping night with kelli, attended thatcher's ULI bbq, went to mill city market & laura's birthday bbq. 

size of baby: 4 inches long and weighs 2.5 oz. the size of an apple. 

maternity clothes: pretty much done with regular pants/shorts. wearing maternity or elastic waist stuff. i've put a self-imposed ban on buying anymore dresses/skirts - i think i've bought 6 in the last couple weeks. oops! 

symptoms: broken out skin, tired, hungry all the time (i feel like i eat something every hour - mmm food)

movement: lots of movement this week. another exciting (but surprising) moment came when thatcher could actually feel it from the outside. i didn't say anything when he had his hand on my lower belly, and sure enough.....right when baby moved he said "felt that!" amazing! i've never heard of that happening so early! 

gender: 4 more weeks. that doesn't seem that far away at all!!

food cravings/aversions: same story. food = good, coffee = bad. i'm sad all my key lime cheesecakes are all gone :( maybe it's a good thing..

morning sickness: still that same low-grade nausea i've had all along. huh. kinda thought it'd be gone by now. luckily it doesn't affect my daily activities. 

what i miss: nothing, thankfully! 

best moment of the week: thatcher feeling baby! 

what thatcher is saying: ok, i sound like a broken record, but feeling baby from the outside for the first time this week was exciting

what i'm looking forward to: 16 (17 actually) week appointment on august 14th and our big ultra sound at the end of august!

Wow, I can't believe you are able to feel the baby (from the outside already). How FUN :))

I can't believe you're this far already. SO CRAZY!!!!! I cannot wait to find out if baby is a boy or a girl!

Bridget said...

I can't wait to see you and that adorable lil' baby bump on Wed!!!!

Lisa said...

Happy 15 weeks to you!! My goodness time is flying by! I am so excited for you guys to find out the gender of your little one! Mmmm, key lime cheesecake?? I'd be sad to see those go and I am not even pregnant! Ha!

Britni said...

I can't believe you can already feel the baby!! Do they say you can feel the baby sooner the second time around?

Are you thinking boy or girl?

Sarah said...

Crazy that Thatcher could feel baby already at 15 weeks! That seems so early!

Sally said...

You look adorable! Hope that low-grade nausea is gone soon.

i am guessing a healthy and strong kickin' lil boy!

I cannot wait for Greg to be able to feel the baby! SO awesome that Thatcher can feel him/her already! There are times when I feel him kick from the outside and think, "MAN! I wish Greg was right by my side to feel it!" but I guess we'll just have to wait :-)

You're looking great, mama!!
