Last pregnancy, I took photos at rather random intervals. I am going to try and remember to take pictures at the same random intervals this time for comparison sake. And I need to remember to do it while I still have decent light. The shadows don't really add to the composition.
So here I am at 15 weeks. Life has vastly improved. I have introduced vegetables back into the diet, although meat is still sketchy. The nausea is more or less gone, although I can still feel yucky in the evenings if I haven't kept on top of my food intake. 15 weeks seemed to be the turning point during the last pregnancy as well.
At 13 weeks, I started to feel the first little flutterings, mostly in the evenings. For my first pregnancy, I had no idea what early baby movement felt like. My employer, a woman and fellow scientist, described it like a fish--like you have a fish hanging out in your uterus with its tail and fins moving and fluttering back and forth. I would have to say that description is spot on, especially given the size of the babe at this point.
I have also stopped requiring a nap, which is timely since Finn has been sporadic with his need for one. (Today we are trying for a short nap. We will see how this goes. *groan*)
