I hit 15 weeks this past Sunday and boy has this week started out with a bang. Monday I work up with a horrible migraine. Sometimes if I get up and get ready for the day the migraine will subside. Today however as I got into the shower I got started to throw up. It was not fun. I canceled all my clients for the day and crawled back into bed where I spent the rest of the day unable to keep down any solids or liquids and slept with a ice pack on my head. Tuesday I woke up and felt better so off to work I went. Last night on my way to my water aerobics class I was rear ended. Luckily I was in my husband's SUV and not my corolla so I barely felt the bump. And even better yet there was no damage to M's car. After aerobics I headed home to relax since I felt a bit of a cold coming on. At 3 this morning I woke up with a fever and horrible cough and chest congestion. So once again I canceled all my clients and am currently trying every home remedy to help cure a fever and congestion. So far I've tried drinking tea, taking a hot bath, boiling water and putting Vick's in it and smothering my chest with vicks vapor rub. Hopefully this will pay off and I will feel better by tomorrow.
And now onto my 15 week update.
How far along: 15 weeks
Total weight gain:None, down 5 pounds
Size and growth of the baby: How your baby's growing: Here's my weekly update from Babycenter.com
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.")
Sex: Have my 16 week appt schedule for MOnday and if we don't find out the sex then I have a 3D ultrasound scheduled for the 24th
