15 Weeks

Fifteen weeks...honestly this last week has flown by. My work is out of control busy, and I was sitting at my desk and realized, "Hey! It's THURSDAY! I am another week pregnant!" So yeah...time is moving. I haven't taken the belly shot for this week yet, but we are going to start taking them weekly (because man, did you SEE my picture last week?? The growth rate is surprising...), so I will add it to the belly shot post either tonight or tomorrow!

So the sweet baby is now four and a half inches from head to butt (they call it crown to rump, but I like head to butt better...) and is the size of a beefsteak tomato. I don't actually know what a beefsteak tomato is, but it is the example given to me by Amalah. The baby is totally practicing breathing these days with the amniotic fluid, and it sensitive to light and pressure on my abdomen. Weighing in at a mighty 1.75 oz, he/she still steadily growing into a person!

As for me, I am great. My only complaint is that I have lower back pain that feels like a pinched nerve. I am thinking it might my sciatic nerve being aggravated. The doc said to just lay on a heating pad and take Tylenol. The Tylenol doesn't do crap, but the heating pad is pure magic. The pain is annoying, but not that big of a deal. All in all I feel wonderful and can't believe I am already 15 weeks!


  1. Don't waste your money on Tylenol. You might as well eat some candy. It's equally effective. Apparently our particular body and chemistry type does not respond to Tylenol, only aspirin. So save your money.

  2. Where I have I been? 15 weeks already! Congrats! Hope that pain doesn't get any worse for you :(
