15 Weeks Pregnant

Here is a photo from us sharing the news with David's family:



There is a small bump that reminds me that indeed, there is a baby in there!


- The past couple weeks I've felt much better - a lot less nausea and vomiting. I'm so thankful that it's ended (unlike my first pregnancy).
- My weight gain is right on track.
-The baby's heart rate was 154 bpm.
- I'm having symptoms that I never had with Dmitri: like dysgeusia (metal taste in mouth). It takes a lot of the fun out of eating.
- We have the big ultrasound at our next appointment! We are planning on finding out the sex of the baby. I have no inclination to whether it's a boy or a girl. Most of our family seem to be voting for a girl, although, the midwife said that it's either a boy or a gymnast! 

Make your guesses now for whether you think it's a boy or a girl!

I think it's a girl since you're havinf different symptoms. And for teh metal taste, try eating with plastic utensils. When I had my tosils out I had that metal taste too and the only way I could eat was with plastic. It might be way different but worth a try!

Glad you are feeling better.

My bump looks a lot like yours, but I'm confused about it. I've actually lost a pound, was about your size to begin with, and my dr. says that my uterus is still really low. So WHERE did my bump come from? lol

When is your next appt? We'll find out what we're having on Oct. 26th!!!

Congratulations! My first grandchild is due in April too, but my son and his wife live in Japan so I won't be able to follow her pregnancy. But now I can follow yours! My son told us this past weekend that she now has a small bump, and is otherwise feeling OK.

Hope you are feeling better these days.

Congratulations! I am guessing it's a girl.

I second the plastic utensils thing. I have had weird occasions where the metal silverware was just too much for me. I never thought about it being hormone related but I'll bet it was!

Mama Gone Green said...

15 weeks pregnant said...

I guess it’s a baby boy because you are sensing the bumps in 15 week. I had the same bumps and kicking when I was 15 weeks pregnant my relatives started guessing that it is a baby boy and yes it was true I had a baby boy. I becoming excited when see this type of posting and remember my days of pregnancy. Congratulations!
