Could it be????

Well, after five weeks of non-stop sickness, it appears that week 15 may be a turning point! I haven't felt sick all day and that is really a first. The sickness has been beyond bad.

I don't think any news I have could be as exciting as this...I was beginning to think that it might never go away and that our poor baby would never grow. That, is definitely not the case seeing as none of my clothes are fitting and almost overnight a belly has appeared! It's so weird and hard to get used to. I can't even imagine how much it's going to grow over the next 4 1/2 months.

This is such a cool experience. We go in next Monday for our next appointment. Then, we will set our ultrasound that will tell us if it's a BOY or a GIRL.

The suspense builds....

For this week, a baby growth update:
At around 4 inches long, crown to rump, your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 ounces. He's busy inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid, which will help develop the air sacs in his lungs. His legs are growing longer than his arms now, and he can move all his joints and limbs. That means his hands are more functional, too. Sweat glands are appearing, and although his eyelids are fused shut, he can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, he's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but his taste buds are beginning to form.
