15 Weeks Pregnant (And 25 Weeks To Go)

Hellewww! At last the morning sickness has (almost) gone and my energy is slowly coming back. I'm not that tired like I used to be when I was in my 8th week where I can barely get to the kitchen from the living room.

So many unpleasant things happened in the office but I decided that it's not worth my time getting all worked up about it because my boss will forever be a DUMB @SSHOLE and I can safely say most people in the office agree with me.

Yes I am aware of the people in my office who read my blog (I also know those who read it secretly). And I just don't care. It's my blog I can write whatever I want and if you don't like it, don't read it.


Moving on to happy news. I'm fast approaching 15 weeks in my pregnancy and all is well and merry :) The only thing that's bugging me is the abdominal pain that I feel from to time. I believe my uterus is stretching. And I'm lucky that my bowel movement is excellent ;).

Anyway I gotta get back to work.


15 weeks pregnant
Your baby's crown-to-rump length is approximately 4 inches and she now weighs approximately 1.75 ounces. Your baby is close to the size of a softball and you can easily tell that you are pregnant now! If you wear maternity clothes or a swimming suit, other people will be able to tell that you are pregnant also. You can probably feel your uterus about three to four inches below your bellybutton.

If you do not yet have a due date, your doctor can easily determine an accurate due date based on the measurement of your baby's head. This is done by an ultrasound examination. Your doctor will be discussing upcoming tests and procedures with you around this time that are able to diagnose or confirm birth defects and other abnormalities.

Your baby is growing at an amazing rate and looking more like a human every day. Because your baby's skin is so thin, you are able to see blood vessels through the skin. Lanugo hair covers your baby's body, but it will be gone when your baby is born. The hair on the eyebrows and head continues to grow. Some babies are born with little or no hair and others have a head full of hair! If you have an ultrasound at this point, you might be able to see your baby sucking its thumb. Even though the eyes continue to move to the front of the face, they are still widely separated. Your baby's ears look like normal ears and continue to develop externally.

The bones that have already formed continue to get harder and retain calcium. The baby is very mobile and flexible at this point. She can bend her arms at the elbows and wrists and she can also make a fist with her hands.
