15 Weeks....Only 25 To Go :)

So I'm a day late on this post because I haven't been feeling well :(  My head feels full, and I have no idea where all this snot is coming from!  Anywho, other than that I have been feeling great baby wise!  Pretty sure I felt Stout Seed # 2 flutter around the other day, so that was really cool!  I have an appointment on Tuesday to hear the heartbeat and to set up an appointment to find out the sex of the baby.  That appointment won't be until January, so we are about 5 weeks from finding out if Stout Seed # 2 is a boy or a girl!  Once it gets closer we will talk names people!  We are excited to start calling this little bundle by name!  I really enjoyed when we got to start calling Joey by made it more real!  So that's what's going on, here's the Belly Pics and the Baby Center news!

Me with Joey in my belly at 15 weeks :)  That's a sassy pic if I do say so myself!!

Here's me with Stout Seed # 2....not feeling so well, that's why I have the scarf and the sad look, but needless to say, I am happy to be carrying Stout Seed # 2, so that's a plus :)

How your baby's growing (Week 15):

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