15 Weeks

I'm 15 weeks!

Size of baby: 4 inches long, or the size of a navel orange! 

Baby is: According to what I've read Baby Schneider is probably busy squirming a ton (or as Mike says the baby is dancing like its mama), hiccuping, and even though baby's eyes are closed he/she can probably sense light.

Maternity Clothes: I'm not wearing any yet, but I can't fit into anything with a waist band unless it's yoga capris (like in this picture) or running shorts. I'm wearing a lot of those as well as flowy dresses.

Sleep: I'm not sleeping very well. I've been waking up so early, and once I wake up I pretty much have to go ahead and get up and eat something so I won't get nauseous.

Gender: Our midwife guessed when she heard the heartbeat last week that it might be a girl (faster and softer heartbeat is more common for girls I think). But I'm happy with either a little lady or a little man. We're not sure yet if we want to find out or be surprised. 

Cravings: I'm just now starting to be able to tolerate a few more foods. I've been sooo nauseous up until now that I'm taking it slow with the food. I'm eating more food, but not yet ready to eat "richer" foods. 

Symptoms: Still nauseous and have very strong food aversions and smell aversions. Had some second trimester headaches the past couple days, but I think the cooler weather today has helped alleviate that. 

Best moment this week: Stopping by a couple friends' apartment to pick some things up and they both commented on my growing baby bump right away (my bump had grown since I saw them a couple weeks ago). Baby Schneider is making himself/herself known wherever mama goes.
