Movement!

So, I am now 15 weeks pregnant! That's almost 4 months! =) And last night, I felt flutters, which I am pretty sure was the baby moving!

According to babyzone.com...
At week 15, your baby-to-be stretches her limbs and bends at her elbows. She's getting big enough that you can feel many of these movements. This week your baby is roughly the size of a small apple or orange. Her bones are continuing to grow and lengthen. While she looks more like a baby, her skin is still thin and translucent with her veins visible. Your baby is also beginning to grow lanugo, a very fine hair. It will keep growing until around the 26th gestational week of pregnancy (that's week 28 of your pregnancy).
How Big Is Baby?
This week your baby is roughly the size of a small apple or orange.

Pregnancy Brain
Dropped anything lately? Tripped over nothing? Forget something you always remember—like the date? You may be experiencing a common complaint in pregnancy—scatterbrain. "Some of my patients call it 'placenta brain,'" says Dr. Joanne Motino Bailey, PhD, a certified nurse-midwife and a professor of women's studies at the University of Michigan. While there are no studies to support the existence of pregnancy scatterbrain, notes Dr. Bailey, there are some changes in your body which may account for your sudden clumsiness.


I have definitely been having pregnancy brain. I was bad enough before I got pregnant. I went to the post office today to mail my swap package, and realized when I got to the counter that I had forgotten to write the addresses on it. Doh! And that is only one example!

Anyways, I work the next two days, then we are driving up to Redding, CA for a wedding on friday... so you may not hear from me again until after this weekend, but If you have any questions for me, as I posted in a previous blog, ask away, and I will try and answer them! =)

Have a great weekend!
