Today is a great day!

So not only is the weather beautiful today, but I'm also feeling really good today. I feel just like I did before I was pregnant, except now I can actually feel the tightening of the skin on my stomach. I can feel and see my baby bump and it really is getting slightly bigger each day. It puts a smile on my face everytime I turn sideways and look in the mirror.

I was in Atlantic City with my family this passed weekend and my mom was telling practically every stranger we came across, that I was pregnant. It was really cute. Even though you still can't really tell with my shirt on, I was wearing a maternity shirt and it was pretty cool knowing that my little baby bump was under there.

I am also excited today because I am now in my 15th pregnancy week. This is what (I am told) is going on with my baby:

The baby's fingers and toes are already well-defined; eyelids, eyebrows, eyelashes, nails and hair are all formed. Teeth and bones are becoming denser. The baby is currently the size of a Naval Orange, which is about 4 inches and 2.5 ounces. He/she is squirming and wiggling like crazy now and the baby's heart is pumping about 25 quarts of blood per day. At this point the baby might be sucking his or her thumb, yawning, stretching, or making faces. The baby's taste buds have finished forming and he/she will now be able to smell strongly curry, cumin, garlic, onion or other strong smells from the mother's diet. The baby's nervous system is functioning and the reproductive organs and genitalia are fully developed. This week marks a period of rapid growth!


  1. so if the genitals are formed, will you know the sex soon? do you guys wanna know?

  2. We will know in about 3-5 weeks. I'm so excited, I can't wait to find out!! Next Wednesday I'll find out the exact date of the ultrasound.
