Continuing the march towards normal proportions, baby’s legs now outmeasure the arms. And, finally, all four limbs have functional joints. Your fetus is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, though you probably still can’t feel the movements.
This week, other than the fainting episode has been good. J and I have been pretty dull, he has been working on the weekends a little so I haven’t done too much other than catch up on reading and relax. My mom is in India again and I sort of miss talking to her, also I feel bad b/c I know she wanted to be super involved but family circumstances are such that she has to focus on my grandparents for now.
How far along? 15 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: – not sure, its been a bit erratic and I’ve not got on the scale this week.
Maternity clothes? Not yet, but things are definitely not fitting right. I moved up a size in shirts though
Stretch marks? No new ones. I started using the Palmers Cocoa butter and Vitamin E oil today along with regular moisturizer, hopefully, it will keep them away.
Sleep: I love sleep. love it. Can’t seem to get enough. Trips to the bathroom in the middle of the middle of the night are more frequent.
Best moment this week: Seeing how much the husib has grown from the fainting u/s I had last week. Also knowing that everything is still okay and I didn’t damage the husib in any way.
Movement: Supposed to start pretty soon
Food cravings: Italian Ice, Pizza and Aloo Gobi. I finally made the perfect batch and it hit the spot perfectly.
