15 weeks!

Wow... time is flying by! I am going to catch up on my belly pics in a few days. My belly hasn't done *much* changing... but I'm definitely starting to feel more pressure and a little discomfort. I can tell somethings changing in there ;)

Before I give the stats for 15 weeks...

I want to wish a VERY SUPER HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my best friend and the absolute love of my life!! Our "real" anniversary (wedding) isn't until Sunday and we have a nice weekend planned... but today marks our "dating" anniversary... something that is still very special to me. For those of you that don't know... I actually met Travis 10 years ago in February and that's when we actually first started 'dating' as young teens... but as fate would have it... we reunited our puppy love as adults and here we are! Travis- I love you more each day and am so glad you're the one I am sharing life's journey with. You take such good care of me and really bring true joy to my life. You truly are my better half. I am so blessed and so very thankful that God has truly blessed and surrounded me with the most wonderful people. XOXOXOXOXO
Bad quality.. I know... but that is "us" about 9 years ago!

Ok--- Let me dry my eyes ;) Here's what Baby H is up to this week!

Your baby's crown-to-rump length is approximately 4 inches and she now weighs approximately 1.75 ounces. Your baby is close to the size of a softball and you can easily tell that you are pregnant now! If you wear maternity clothes or a swimming suit, other people will be able to tell that you are pregnant also. You can probably feel your uterus about three to four inches below your bellybutton. <--- ahh... so that's what i'm feeling ;)

If you do not yet have a due date, your doctor can easily determine an accurate due date based on the measurement of your baby's head. This is done by an ultrasound examination. Your doctor will be discussing upcoming tests and procedures with you around this time that are able to diagnose or confirm birth defects and other abnormalities. Your baby is growing at an amazing rate and looking more like a human every day.

Because your baby's skin is so thin, you are able to see blood vessels through the skin. Lanugo hair covers your baby's body, but it will be gone when your baby is born. The hair on the eyebrows and head continues to grow. Some babies are born with little or no hair and others have a head full of hair! If you have an ultrasound at this point, you might be able to see your baby sucking its thumb. Even though the eyes continue to move to the front of the face, they are still widely separated. Your baby's ears look like normal ears and continue to develop externally. The bones that have already formed continue to get harder and retain calcium. The baby is very mobile and flexible at this point. She can bend her arms at the elbows and wrists and she can also make a fist with her hands.
