At 15 weeks I am well into my 2nd trimester now. Its feels so crazy to think that I will be half way through this pregnancy before Christmas!
How far along? 15 weeks and 1 days
Due date? 7th May 2017
How is baby doing? Baby is the size of a Pear, it weighs 70 grams and is 3.98 inches long. My little baby is able to rub its eyes, yawn and even blink. He/she even has the ability to grab hold of the umbilical cord. Baby’s hairline is forming and hair is starting to grow on baby’s head. Even eyelashes and eyebrows are growing. It’s still a little early to find out the sex of the baby but it won’t be long now. Our Gender scan is booked for 2 weeks time. Our baby can also hear sounds now.
Maternity clothes: I may or may not have purchased 2 stripey Breton tops from Asos using the 20% off maternity wear code. Oops! I still haven’t worn many maternity clothes yet, only my maternity jeans really which I could not be without.
Stretch marks: No stretch marks yet. I have tried to be better with my body butter application but I am still not doing it every night.
Sleep: My sleep hasn’t been much better this week my cold has turned into a lingering cough and I seem to be up all night coughing. Nick is not very happy about this either as I keep disturbing him.
Best moment this week: Nothing really is happening this week. I am looking forward to celebrating my god daughter’s 3rd birthday at the weekend.
Miss anything? Feeling well. I am a terrible sick person. Although I am not dying this cold/cough is lingering on and getting me down.
Movement: No obvious movements. I am excited as I could start to feel ‘quickening’ any week now.
Gender: Still unknown. I have posted a picture of my 12 week scan on a facebook page called strictly nub theory. They have all said that my nub looks like a girl. I was quite upset after seeing what I thought was a willy at my 12 week scan I have been convinced that I am having a boy. I would love a boy!
Of course I will love this baby whatever sex it is, this is something so completely beyond my control and what will be will be. I would just really like to give Rosalie a little brother like I had. The M and S Christmas advert is NOT helping with this.
Labour signs: No
Symptoms: I am feeling tired and a little sick but I think this is down to being unwell and full of phlegm rather than the pregnancy. I would just like to feel well again please. I have started to feel aches in my hips and after a day of walking around town at the weekend I started to develop the pregnancy waddle! I swear it’s too early for this.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Taking my pregnacare max tablets, I nearly threw them straight back up this morning.
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy
How I feel? Tired and ill. I am never normally ill so I hate feeling under the weather. I also have developed an ear infection to top it all off. I hope I will be abit more cheery next week.
Looking forward to: Our gender scan. I just want to know if we are having a boy or girl now. I desperately want a boy so that Rosalie will have a little brother like I had and if that is not going to happen I need to get my head around it.
