Our Pregnancy: 15 Weeks

I was just looking back at my GS pregnancies at 15 weeks; this was the twins and this was Miss S!

According to babycenter:

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.")

I have my next OB appointment scheduled for April 11th and will hopefully get an appointment for the "big" ultrasound at that point. I CANNOT wait to see if we're expecting a girl or a boy, and most importantly hear baby is healthy and growing well and that everything looks good! I haven't had a "sneak peek" for 7 weeks now, which I know is normal for a regular pregnancy, but with my GS pregnancies it seemed like we were getting ultrasounds at least every month for one reason or another and I got spoiled getting to see the babies were doing well so often. :)

I feel fat most of the time at this point and am still doing my best to hide the belly at work - I can still wear a few pairs of "normal" slacks for work and a couple skirts and try to stick to things that are loose over the middle. I get to sit behind a desk most of the day too, so no one's really had a reason to see my expanding stomach much yet. I'm pretty sure in the next 2-4 weeks it won't be something I can hide very well any more.  Since I just started my job a couple weeks ago I'd like to not draw attention to my pregnancy for as long as possible, but we'll see how it goes! I am really loving my new job and am so thankful I was given the opportunity to work with such a fantastic group of people. I love what I'm doing; it's a great fit for my experiences, skills, and personality. I feel like I'm "figuring it out" a little more each day and hopefully those I work with feel the same! :)

We've been looking at new homes nearer to my work and went and viewed two in Decatur over the weekend. I really liked the first house, but the neighborhood made Kenneth a little nervous. We found a GREAT home in Stone Mountain, it's a few miles further but about the same commute time since part of it is highway and not all back roads. It's got a lot more space, and a nice backyard and is in a nice subdivision. We'd love to have that type of neighborhood for Kent's sake - it would be awesome for him to have a good place to ride his bike around and to find others his age he can get to know and play with. Fingers crossed it's still available and we can go see it early this week. We're hoping maybe we can make an offer this week!
