How far along: 15 weeks. (From the Bump) Continuing the march towards normal proportions, baby's legs now out measure 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 big is baby: The size of a Navel Orange. Average size: 4 inches, 2.5 oz.
Weight gain/loss: This last week, I've not gained anything. From the beginning, I'm up only 3 pounds.
Maternity clothes: I wearing maternity pants, skirts or leggings with dresses to be comfortable, however, I can still fit into my "big girl jeans" without my belly band and actually enjoy wearing them! Tops, no thank you. They all make me look bigger than I am. So, I'm going with comfort and whatever still fits that is part of my "normal" wardrobe.
Stretch marks: Just the left over ones.
Sleep: Aside from having a cold that wakes me up because my nose is running, I cannot breath or because I have a lot of pressure in my head, sleep has been better. I've found that this week, I've been overly tired and constantly falling asleep. The moment that Coen is asleep and I'm on the couch, I can almost bet that I'll be asleep with in 5 minutes. Oh and if I have a pillow and a blanket, forget about it. I might as well go to bed. No problems related to pregnancy and sleep, though. And yes, I'm still co-sleeping.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: I'm really enjoying fountain caffine free Coke from McDonald's. We bought some in cans and it's just not the same. Aside from that, I'm not really craving anything special. I just like food.
Gender: We find out in about 3 weeks.
Movement: I haven't felt anything yet, but I'm not surprised.
The belly: Not really growing in size yet, but soon enough.
What I'm loving: Watching Coen learn and grow, every day.
What I (think I will) miss: Just being able to spend one on one time with Coen. I'm sure it won't matter when I have two loves to stare at and watch, but spending time with Coen just makes me so happy. I hope that I never get too busy to spend time with him, one on one.
Symptoms: My sciatic is still acting up, but I'm just trying to power through that. Oh and my knockers are sore... makes it hard to love nursing when I know most of my pain or irritation is because of the pregnancy. Oh well, just part of life.
The nursery: I think I have a plan, but we won't execute it until April or May.
What's different/the same this time: Nothing really. The best part is that I really don't feel pregnant. I just feel normal. I've said this before, but I couldn't imagine being pregnant, ill and having a 9 month old. That would be miserable.
What I'm looking forward to: Watching Coen love on his sibling.
Best moment of the week: Coen crawling in true crawl form, Coen pulling up on the ottoman and beating on it and Coen pulling up in his crib and just having the time of his life. He makes me so happy. It also warms my heart to see Coen and S together too. He sings to him and makes crazy noises that Coen just giggles to and it's really hilarious. I love leaving them in a room together and just listening in on what's going on.... So much love.
