15 Week Update

This week:
  • Baby is the size of an orange!
  • The 3 teeny tiny bones in the inner ear are developing so baby will be able to hear soon!
  • Baby is dancing up a storm in there but I still can't feel it. Looking forward to feeling those first movements in the next couple of weeks!
  • I am *hopefully* starting to reach that magical 2nd trimester - Nausea and vomiting have decreased slightly and mornings are becoming easier to manage. 
  • I have graduated to maternity shorts - they will be my work staple over the hot summer.
  • I have a cocktail of pills to take each night - iodine, calcuim and asprin (which are in the shape of a heart!)
  • No cravings yet, still trying to get my appetite to resemble normal.  
  • Dave and I are on the countdown to our 20 week scan where we will be finding out the gender (hopefully). This will probably happen the week before Christmas which will be the best present ever!
  • My parents have been visiting and making a fuss over Dave and I: cooking us meals, helping do our major and minor landscaping jobs and will be taking us away to the West Coast this weekend too!
  • Dave has been the most supportive husband and dad-to-be. He has cooked many, many meals, eaten strange food combinations (chips, gravy and cheese) and put up with all my weird and wonderful and annoying symptoms, all with a smile on his face. I am so, so blessed to have this guy by my side.
