Each week I have enjoyed going back and looking at my survey answers from that particular week in my last pregnancy. It is neat to see how different they are and what parts are similar. Check out Week 15 from my pregnancy with Lincoln. Also, no belly pics yet. I’m just now starting to have a bit of a bump, so I’ll probably take a picture for week 16 or 17.

Weekly Wisdom: Yesterday Steven commented about my weight loss and how he had always wondered why women that have kids close together are usually thin. My answer: “They don’t have time to eat.”
“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.”)” -babycenter.com
“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. ” – thebump.com
