How far along:
15 weeks 4 days
Size of a naval orange
At week 15, baby stretches his/her limbs and bends his/her elbows. Baby is getting big enough that you can feel many of these movements.
This week baby is roughly the size of a orange. Baby's bones are continuing to grow and lengthen. Baby looks more like a baby, her skin is still thin and translucent with his/her veins visible.
Baby is also beginning to grow lanugo, a very fine hair. It will keep growing until around the 26th gestational week of pregnancy.
I have been feeling much better this week. I still get a bit tired and nauseous in the evenings but much much better.
I have more energy to go on walks and bike rides with the kids:
( I was exhausted and sore the next day, but it felt good to get out)
And I even had energy to host a brunch playdate:
I am not craving anything this week. But I do enjoy salads, fresh fruit and veggies with dip now.
I still hate all kinds of meat. I do eat turkey meat in a sandwich, but no other meat.
I am always thirsty and have water with me all the time.
I have been having short jabbing pain in my abdominal when I get up to fast, bend over to pick up something. I think this is called round ligament pain.
I am still sleeping well at night, but occasionally wake up with headaches and back aches.
I have been wearing more maternity clothes, especially pants.
I have been feeling little flips. It is so precious!
Have you started to show yet:
