15 Weeks!

The week of the orange! 
I am positive that I felt the baby moving yesterday! I have felt a few flutters here and there previously, but there was no mistaking it this time.  It was very neat!
I am feeling much better.  The doctor prescribed Reglan, and it has been a wonder drug!!!! Works much better than Zofran did for me.  I am happy to have something that I know will work even will I feel my worst!  Not sure if I am to the point of feeling better without it, I haven't been brave enough to try.
Here are the facts about week 15:

Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces. 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.")

My appointment is tomorrow morning.  We should be scheduling the "big" ultrasound so we will know when to expect to find out boy or girl!!!!
