Week 15!!! This is so exciting! Our baby is the size of...
We have a doctor's appt next week, where he will just check us to make sure everything is going on great. We will get to listen to the heart beat! I'm feeling much better now. I only gag in the EARLY mornings. I am getting a lot of headaches now.. Which I hate!! I'm very very forgetful now.. Its not funny. That I'm also hating.(My work is probably hating it too)
From the Website:
How your baby's growing:
Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl! (Don't be too disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down your baby's sex depends on the clarity of the picture and on your baby's position. He or she may be modestly curled up or turned in such a way as to "hide the goods.")
From out book:
Your baby, who measures 4 1/2 inches this week and weighs around 2 to 3 ounces, is about the size of an orange. Looking more and more like the baby you're picturing in your dreams his or her ears are positioned properly on the sides of the head (they used to be in the neck), and the eyes are moving from the side of the head to the front of the face. By now your baby has the coordination, strength, and smarts to wiggle his or her fingers and toes and even suck a thumb. But that's not all your baby can do now. He or She can also breathe (or at least make breathing movements), suck and swallow-all in preparation for the big debut and life outside the womb. And though it's unlikely that you'll be feeling any movements from your little one this week, your baby is certainly getting a workout-kicking, flexing, and moving those arms and legs.
