Bump Watch :: 15 Weeks

15 Weeks

How far along: 15 weeks

Size of Baby: 4.0 in & 2.5 oz

Fruit/vegetable comparison: Apple

Total weight gain: About 1 pound (little less)

Sleep: Getting a little better.  I still wake up a few times a night and it seems harder for me to fall back asleep then it used to.

Movement: Not yet and can't wait!

Unglamorous body changes: Nothing too drastic this week.  I've really been feeling pulling and stretching in my lower abdomen.  I guess that uterus is really growing!  I also can feel the hardness in my belly where the baby is at.  It's a weird feeling to sit on the couch and drawl your legs up to your chest and feel something push back at you in your lower stomach.  I think it's going to take me awhile to get used to my belly getting bigger!

Maternity Clothes? Yes, still just wearing maternity pants and leggings (I think I'm going to wear the maternity leggings even after I'm pregnant they are so awesome!).

Showing: Every week I'm starting to a little more.  I catch my husband staring at my belly now.  All of a sudden he won't let me lift anything heavy.  I told him, "You used to let me lift heavy things in my first trimester!  What changed??".  He said, "Well, you are showing now so I'm not letting you lift anything!".  Ha!

Food cravings: Not really, still liking milk and sweets.  Nothing too exciting here.

What I miss: Still missing Dr. Pepper and deli meats!  I wish I could just have a turkey sandwich again.

Strange experiences: Nothing too strange this week.  Just having a lot of weird feelings in my stomach.  I'm guessing that's just my body making room for the growing baby.

Milestones: The baby is squirming a ton! It might even be hiccuping and it's joints & limbs can all move now.  (per

Best moment this week: Had a check up with the doctor and everything looked good!  We got to hear the baby's heartbeat through the Dr.'s doppler and it was reassuring to know we were using our doppler correctly at home. Ha!  AND we got to schedule our next appointment where we get to find out what we are having!!  In the next few weeks I'm going to put up a poll for everyone to make their guesses on if you think we are having a boy or a girl.  I've got lots of ideas flowing through my head on revealing the gender to our friends and family.  So excited for October!

Looking forward to: Feeling the baby move, finding out what we are having and figuring out the baby's name!


  1. Can we talk about what an adorable pregnant lady you are?! Seriously, I am so happy for you guys!

  2. You look absolutely adorable!!

  3. I'm Guessing GIRL!! What are most people guessing?

  4. I know you're probably paranoid like I am, but my doctor said deli meats are really fine. As long as they're kept cool, and you're in a clean place. In other words, common sense... like you'd want to eat dirty hot deli meat in any other time. Seriously, have some Subway if you (or the baby) wants!

  5. I often get emotionally involved. Like when I read your post, I can cry, laugh, sad, funny, depending on your written words. I think you are a sensitive person.


I'd love to hear from you!
