Rocking 16 weeks

I've made it past the OMG I'm tired hump to frequent but mild fatigue. I'm excited for the big u/s in 3 weeks. I hope we find out boy or girl!

Over the past three weeks baby has managed to stretch yet another 2 full inches (totaling about 4.5 inches) and weighs around 3.5 ounces.
His/her head to body ratio is finally starting to even out a bit as the rest of the body is actually growing faster than the head at this point.

The adorable little limbs have lengthened, almost reaching his/her normal proportions which he/she will have at birth.

The big 1-5

We've made it to 15 weeks and had another great appointment. Baby's heartbeat is good and he/she is moving around. I'm tired still and hope that it'll lessen soon. It's time to schedule the big sonogram for mid-September and hope he/she cooperates!

Now at 15 weeks, my little wonder is the size of a navel orange. Maybe that is why I'm loving oranges right now.

Babies at this age practice breathing, sucking, and swallowing so that when they leave your comfy womb and move into your comfy house, they'll have the skills necessary to survive.

Tada, 14 weeks!

Growing by leaps and bounds, by week 14 of pregnancy, baby is leaping and bounding. He or she is on the move almost constantly — and those movements are a far cry from those jerky twitches of last trimester (though you won't feel any of them for weeks to come). They are now ballet-like, smooth and fluid.

Can I just say I can't wait to feel the movements? I am so excited to have made it this far and look forward to the rest of the 2nd tri!

13 weeks ya'll!

I'm starting to show and need to wear maternity tops. I'm sticking out a bit in my normal tops and they're getting tight.
Still tired but making it into work, which is a nice thing. Gots to pay off those bills before baby comes!

This week, fingerprints have formed on baby's tiny fingertips, his/her veins and organs are clearly visible through his/her still-thin skin, and his/her body is starting to catch up with his/her head which makes up just a third of his/her body size now. Baby is almost 3 inches long!
