15 Weeks

Continuing the march towards normal proportions, baby's legs now outmeasure the arms. And, finally, all four limbs have functional joints. Your fetus is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, though you probably still can't feel the movements.

How far along: 15 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: gained 3 lbs according to my doctor
Maternity clothes: Jeans and tops… Can’t find any cute shorts
Stretch marks: None
Sleep: Sleeping good, but hurting when I wake up
Best moment last week: Seeing the changes in my belly and eating habits
Movement: I felt the baby for the first time today… It was so weird
Food cravings: Salads… Veggies and fruit are my best friend
Gender: The doctor thinks boy so I am now thinking that
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button in or out: In, but stretching
What I miss: Hot baths
What I am looking forward to: August 25th, we have our ultrasound
Milestones: Feeling the baby move and scheduling our ultrasound… we also bought our first baby clothes!

Today, Scott & I went to our 15 week check up. We got to hear the heartbeat again and the doctor said that we have a very cooperative baby. Yeah, give it time... Once we deliver, he or she probably won't be too cooperative. The doctor asked if we were going to find out what we were having and we said YES! She wanted to guess and she thinks its a boy. HAHA... That's all my family has is boys. Either way, Scott & I just want he or she to be healthy. It would be nice to just be able to call it by a name. The doctor said everthing looks great and that I am very healthy and to not change my eating habits. Scott had been concerned that I hadn't been eating enough, but I have gained 3 lbs so I am doing something right. We can't wait for our next appt August 25th. My mom and Tom, Dad and Jean & Bruce and Rhonda will all be in town so we can tell them in person. Things are going so well, I just hope they continue to go this way.
We went shopping for the first time for baby clothes last night. We got all green and yellow. I'll be posting some pictures later.
