My change day is Sunday, and while Tony did take a picture of our Baby Love's progress, well, I just wasn't a fan of them, so I took another work one today.

And clothed.
[This is one of my most favorite polyester shirts ever. I bought it a few years back at F21]

Not much to report on the home front this week. I've entered one of the most boring stretches of pregnancy, right between clearing the first tri and beginning to feel normal through finally seeing the little one again at the 20w anatomy scan.

How far along?: 15w1d
How big is baby?: The size of an orange! Just over 4 inches and weighing the size of a small apple.
Weight gain/loss?: Still hovering at 3lbs.
Stretch marks?: None, thankfully.
Maternity clothes?: I've been trying to wear my maternity jeans, but they're just too big.
Sleep?: Crazy pregnancy dreams have been attacking, so I haven't been sleeping the best.
Food cravings?: I rarely give into cravings, because honestly something different sounds good at any given moment.
Gender?: Still unknown, counting down to February 15th.
Movement?: I may be feeling flutters, which are just boggling my mind since I didn't feel Isaac until 23w.
Belly button?: Unaffected.
What do you miss?: Today, I miss a nice glass of wine with girlfriends.
What are you looking forward to this week?: I'm looking forward to the end of this week, since we have our 2nd appointment with the midwife next Friday! I can't wait to hear Baby Love's heartbeat again!

I'm sure you've noticed, I think I've decided to go with Baby Love. It was on my mind before I put the call out for suggestions and while I loved all of the suggestions, even though love deviates from the blog title, it just feels right.

Baby Love is busy moving amniotic fluid through it's nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in the lungs begin to develop. The legs are growing longer than the arms now, and the little one can move all of its joints and limbs. Although the eyelids are still fused shut, Baby Love can sense light.

I'm really debating taking Tuesday, February 15th off. The anatomy scan is scheduled for 8:00, so thankfully we won't have to wait the whole day away! With Isaac we also had an early appointment and then drove in to work. It'd be nice to spend the day as a family with the confirmation that Baby Love is doing well and knowing what sex we're preparing for. It would also be beneficial if we found out terrible news, but I'm still undecided if it's really worth it to take off.

I'm eating vegetables again! No seriously, I'm eating vegetables again and fruit too! It's fantastic.

I'm so jealous of your little baby bump! So cute!

I just look like I ate 4 Thanksgiving dinners in a row - kind of bloaty and weird. I haven't taken any pictures because there's no bump, but maybe I should?

Hearing the heartbeat is the *best* - so reassuring. And I'm trying to eat better for baby, too, though I think it'll get easier when we can get tons of fresh produce from the local farmer's market...
