15 weeks!

How your baby's growing:

Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl! (Don't be too disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down your baby's sex depends on the clarity of the picture and on your baby's position. He or she may be modestly curled up or turned in such a way as to "hide the goods.")

Wow...this pregnancy is really going fast! Only 25 weeks left! :) I'm not really "showing" yet...I can't fit into any of my pre-pregnancy pants without feeling like I can't breathe, so I've been wearing alot of maternity bottoms. My chubby belly just looks like it's getting chubbier. :{ I hate this in-between stage.
I'm the maid (er, matron...I hate that word) of honor in my best friend's wedding on Friday! When we went to get my dress, I didn't know I was pregnant, but I went ahead and got the dress about 3 sizes too big just so it would fit my chest (that's a whole other post)...we just figured I could take it in around the middle, but we're just gonna leave it how it is now that I'm pregnant. I still have to pick it up from the alteration place. Laney and Chloe are the flower girls. :) Laney is gonna walk Daniel (the bride and groom's little boy) little boy down the isle (he's the ring bearer) and Chloe is gonna throw the petals. We'll see how that goes :)
