15 Weeks

- 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).
- Baby is busy moving amniotic fluid through the nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in the lungs begin to develop.
- Legs are growing longer than the arms now, and all of the joints and limbs can move.
- Although the eyelids are still fused shut, baby can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, baby will likely move away from the beam.
- Taste buds are forming even though there isn’t much to taste at this point.


- Well into the swing of pregnancy, but sometimes surprised by an unexpected symptom now and then.
- My stuffed up nose can probably be chalked up to the combined effect of hormonal changes and increased blood flow to your mucous membranes. This condition is so common, there's even a name for it: "rhinitis of pregnancy." Mine is ALWAYS stuffy and it’s annoying and nasty.
- They say I should start to feel movement any time now and that you can usually start feeling it between 16 – 20 weeks.
- Headaches are still there on and off, some weeks are better than others with this.
- My weight was 127 lbs at our last doctor’s appointment, Friday 3/26.
- Our next appointment is April 23rd and we will have another ultrasound done and hopefully find out if it’s a boy or girl!


  1. oh wow! moving right along! Can't wait to find out if it's a boy or girl! :)

  2. A few things got left out:
    1. She the cutest and most beautiful pregnant person ever!
    2. She smells very random things at very random times. lol
    3. How much her husband loves her and how he thinks she is amazing!
