{Pregnancy Update} Almost 16 Weeks

Where has the time gone? I am just now getting around to write my Week 15 pregnancy update but since I am 15 weeks 5 days today I think I will do a 15/16 week update.

Week 15: 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. (source)

Week 16: Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. Right now, he’s about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren’t recognizable yet. He’s even started growing toenails. (source)

And finally a photo of moi…

How I’m Changing

I am getting rounder. Duh right? I especially feel rounder in the evening after I’ve eaten all day and everyday I feel a little bit different.  Now you can finally see the physical changes and I will post a new photo each week from now on so you can watch my changes.

How I’m Feeling

I am feeling exhausted and hungry.  I am having trouble sleeping lately and toss and turn all night, this whole sleeping on my left side thing just isn’t my favorite. I end up tossing and turning from side to side to relieve my hips.  In addition to aching hips, my mind is racing a mile a minute creating lists of things I need to do to prep for the baby.  Oh and don’t get me started on the crazy dreams! Needless to say I am trying to get used to all these changes and I try to find time to sleep when I can.


What I’m Eating

I am eating everything lately! I am so hungry all the time so I have been eating small meals throughout the day. Currently my favorite things are brown rice with beans and sriracha and my husbands AMAZING pasta he made the other night with veggies and garlic <—craving this right now.
