So, I am excited about this little Peanut coming…and I know our families are. Between our two families, this is the first grand- or great-grandchild. I’ve seen this (below) as an increasingly popular way to update the world on the progress we’re making during pregnancy, and my plan is to continue the tradition. It will be neat to look back on it as Peanut grows, and even after Peanut is born. Without further ado, my 15 week update!
Total weight gain/loss so far: -12, thank you morning sickness
Wearing any maternity clothes? Yes, I have for several weeks. Certainly more comfortable than squeezing into regular jeans. However, still a fair number of regular clothes. Mostly shirts and sweatpants.
How’s the sleep? Some night are good, some aren’t so good. Naps are a common occurrence for me…even after a good night of sleep! (I feel like I’m turning into my mom…)
Do you miss anything? Cold sub sandwiches. I’ve already told Jon that the way to get to see me (or Peanut) after they come is to bring me a sub. No sub, no entrance.
How much is baby moving? Can’t feel anything yet; however, on the last ultrasound, Peanut was moving and grooving!
What are the food cravings like? Still none, really. I’m just trying to get back to where I can enjoy food.
Is anything making you queasy or sick? Do you want the long or short list?
Have you started to show yet? I saw something last week that describes pregnancy at this point as “looking ambiguously fat”. Though I still feel like that, Jon says you’re starting to be able to tell.
Boy or girl? Don’t know yet — Jon thinks it’s a girl, though. We hope to find out in May.
Any labor signs? No, and there better not be any for a long time.
Is the belly button in or out? In, but I’m noticing it get a little flatter.
Are the wedding rings on or off? On.
What’s the mood? Good, just sleepy.
How big is the baby? Peanut is the size of an orange! He or she is weighing in at a whopping 2.5 ounces and measuring 4 inches!
What’s baby up to this week? Peanut is growing! Their legs now out-measure the arms as he or she becomes more proportional. All four limbs now have functional joints.
What are you looking forward to? I’m excited to get moved and get settled in our house next month! (One step at a time: house and then I feel like I can start planning for baby.)
