15 weeks

Last week was probably the hardest week I've had this pregnancy.  I got really sick on Wednesday and my fever got up to 101.5, and my whole body ached and I was miserable. I took some Tylenol to bring my fever down and it went down within a few hours - praise the Lord!  I feel better now but am still congested and dealing with allergies. But all good! :)

Size of Baby: According to What to Expect, our baby is the size of an orange! Around 4.5 inches and 2-3 ounces.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: We don't have a scale at home, but at my last appointment I was up 4lbs.

Maternity Clothes: In the very near future! I cannot button most of my pants but shirts are fine. A teeny tiny bump is starting to show :)

Gender: I go back and forth each week. Sometimes I think girl, sometimes I think boy. We got a doppler to hear the baby's heartbeat at home, and yesterday it was 150. We shall see! We find out the gender on April 21st! 3 weeks!

Belly Button In/Out: In

 Stretch Marks: Not yet

Labor Signs: No

Movement: Not really sure what I'm looking for.  I figure I'll know when it happens!

Sleep: I was sick last week and sleep was horrible for a few days. I'm feeling better now but just have allergies.

What I miss: Nothing! :)

What I am looking forward to: April 21st!!! That is our 18 week anatomy scan and we find out the gender!

Cravings/Aversions: Pizza, apples, water.

Symptoms: Bloated, heartburn, gassy, headaches.

Best Moment This Week: Hearing the baby's heartbeat at home!  It was so sweet!
