How far along? 15 weeks
Size of baby: 4-4.5 in. and 1.75 oz. About the size of an orange
Weight gain: 3 pounds. I feel like I have gained 20!
Maternity clothes: Still the bellaband with my jeans and occasionally a maternity shirt but their still too loose.
Stretch marks: Nope. Rub, rub, rubbin that cocoa butter lotion on twice a day
Sleep:SO much better since my awesome siblings got me the boppy body pillow. That thing is my best friend. Still waking a few times a night to use the restroom though.
Symptoms: Occasionally cramping but doctor said that's just everything stretching and growing and completely normal. Gotta make some room for that growing baby!
Best moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat today! 152-156bpm
Movement: Nope. I'm dying to feel it
Food cravings: There wasn't anything this week I HAD to have. I might have made Derek go get me an ice cream sandwich Friday night but I haven't been too demanding besides that night.
Gender: June 29! Derek is determined it's a boy and I am completely clueless since hearing the heartbeat today and it's not as high anymore. Doctor said 120-160bpm is normal for this time so technically I am on the higher end but she said not to believe the high heart rate means girls and low heart rate means boy. So today I am saying boy.
What I miss: My jeans being able to fit! The bellaband works pretty good but I would rather be able to button my jeans. Don't think it will be too much longer before I bust out the maternity jeans.
Milestones: In 2nd trimester. 25 weeks to go!
