16 Weeks

Man, I’ve really popped this week!

Size of baby: 5 inches (about the size of an open hand)

Sleep: Alright. I’m still having back/body aches.
What I Miss: Everything! Surfing, Monsters, booze, etc… It’s all worth it though. 🙂
Cravings: Thousand Island salad dressing, broccoli & cheese soup
Symptoms: a tiny bit of heartburn, body aches, stretching feelings inside my tummy
Fetal Movement: I’ve been feeling some tapping
Best Moment This Week: Discussing plans for after the baby is born and I after I graduate law school. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

15 Weeks

Size of Baby: 4.5 inches (about the size of an apple). 
Sleep: A little better now that I have an awesome pregnancy pillow. 
What I Miss: well yesterday we went out on a boat and everyone was jumping off the roof into the water but I couldn’t 🙁 womp womp womp… besides that, the usual. 
Cravings: Still haven’t got my Mexican food fix (besides what I cook myself, and that doesn’t count).
Symptoms: bodyaches… 🙁 ughh…
Fetal Movement: I don’t think I felt anything this week. 
Best Moment This Week: Being able to hear my little baby’s heartbeat again at my OB checkup. 🙂

Second Doctor Visit

Quick Update: I had my 2nd OB visit today. It went by really quickly. All they did was take my weight & blood pressure, measure my uterus, and listen to the heartbeat. Everything looked great! I also got to schedule my anatomy/gender ultrasound for October 28. Seems sooooo far away!!! I can’t wait! 

14 weeks


Size of Baby: 3 1/2 Inches – About the size of a clenched fist. 
Sleep: Not so good. I’ve been having body aches and it’s been really hard for me to get comfortable. 
What I miss: surfing, skating, sprinting, Monsters, Jack & coke
Cravings: Mexican food. I can’t wait to get back home already.
Symptoms: I haven’t really had any symptoms other than the body aches. 
Fetal Movement: I was lying in bed the other night and I thought I felt flutters. From what I’ve read, though, it’s still too early to feel them. I don’t know what else it could have been though. It definitely wasn’t gas, as it was a completely different feeling. I guess it could have just been organs moving around or something. 
Best Moment This Week: I had fun shopping at the Target baby sale and buying my little belly monster stuff.
