14 and 15 weeks pregnancy update: Ultrasound & Baby Bump & Video

Tags

, , , ,

Hello lovelies, hope your all doing well. Today I would like to update you about the beginning of my second Trimester, week 14 and 15.  more so, I will be sharing my first baby bump and ultrasound video.

What was happening to me

At 14/15 weeks my baby bump started showing for the first time and this was the the happiest moments of my life. The morning sickness did not stop though it did decrease, I thought it would stop as soon as I entered my second trimester but I was wrong. I started having dreams every single night about various situations and until now I do have weired dreams…Doctor says it is normal. Fatigue kicked in and over sleeping still kept on haunting me. I started having on and off headaches on fore head and this is a major symptom in this trimester. Also i gained weight  a bit, well since my apetite started coming back and I could eat some good food without feeling nauseous. I gained energy and I  now carried on with my normal house chores from where i had stopped. My weight increased as well during this time. 

About the baby development

The baby has grown since, weighing 1.75 ounces and reaching four inches in length. A fine hair called lanugo covers the skin, keeping the baby at a constant body temperature.

The lanugo does this until the baby is born, and it disappears just before birth. During the fifteenth week, many good things are happening inside the womb.

The biggest thing is that the bones in the ear are hardening, and my baby is now able to hear sounds, including Mom’s heartbeat, speaking, and breathing. And am advised by most websites to begin  putting headphones on the belly during the second trimester, playing soft music to keep the baby calm.

According to pregnancy corner “the baby is moving around a lot, the mum may not be able to tell just yet, although she may occasionally feel the baby kick. She may also get the occasional hiccups. These movements will be felt more easily and more often later in the pregnancy.”

My baby is making faces, squinting and frowning, and sucking on its thumb. Since last week the arms and legs have grown longer than the head.

This is significant, since the head has been the biggest part of the fetus until now. Taste buds are forming, and the fingernails and toenails are growing longer by the day.

Check out the video for the ultrasound and probably you may be able to guess the gender.

AM PREGNANT!!! #First Trimester Recap

Yeah yeah you heard me right…AM PREGNANT!

On December 24th 2016 I had a pregnant test and it was a  very big fat POSITIVE….this was the greatest news and the only Christmas gift I desired then. I gave the news to my Husband who was beyond excited to be a father.

We are so thankful to God who has given us this gift and we can not wait to set our eyes on our first born. Being newly weds and getting pregnant a month after was such a huge turning point in our lives. Thank God he answered our Prayers.

I had my first ultrasound at 6 weeks …seeing my little one for the first time was breathing taking. The next two ultrasounds that have followed, i have seen my baby grow so beautifully and i can’t wait to hold him in my arms.

If you are already a  mother or soon to be one, you know that the first trimester (1-3months) is the most challenging and daunting period

My most challenging moments during this time was majorly the popular ”Morning sickness(Vomiting)” as many call it but in real life this not only happen in mornings but kicks in any time of the day or  night. I was always nauseated most of the time and there was barely any day that passed without vomiting at least 3 times a day….yes i couldn’t keep anything down not even water. Going to work was very tiresome and uncomfortable as i kept excusing my self to run to the wash room to puke.  

My body under went other changes like increase in the size of my breasts, fatigue and over sleeping, i got heart burn,constipation. I lost appetite for most of my favorite food, high Sensitivity to smell made me stay away from most foods and hating on my gorgeous perfumes & makeup…so annoying right?

 I used to love shopping but hey, sleeping endless hours was my new found passion mostly on my off days…there was no way i could go to the mall or church while nauseated and tired all the time. In addition i lost weight as well.

Thanks to my Husband who became the Executive chef of our home…trying to cook for me whatever dish i craved for at any time…i must say he is such a best friend.

With all that was going on in my life, there was no way I could blog and keep up with you guys. First Trimester was not a cup of tea for me.

As i speak now am in the Second trimester ( 4 months and 5 days Prego) yaay to that and my bump is now showing…i must say, i got the most beautiful bump ever lol…wait for it in my next post. 

They say that 2nd trimester is the honeymoon of pregnancy and to some extent i agree because i now feel much better… morning sickness has now reduced,my appetite is back and i am more energetic…i can’t wait to start baby shopping. I have on and off headache & cramping but i hope it ceases soon.

 There is lot to share with you guyz in my upcoming posts about my pregnancy journey… diet,baby names ideas and gender reveal so don’t go any where.

Hello loveles,winter is here…i mean this side the coldness is increasing everyday…i don’t know about your country but i guess Europe and USA it is already winter season.

1. Trench coat

With all this coldness that is out there ….never leave the house without a trench coat. This keeps you warm and chic at the same time. A trench coat is one of my favorite in this seaso plus it elevates your look.

2. A scarf & Beanies

what’s winter without a scarf around your neck? dress your neck in style with a heavy scarf to save you from this cold weather.

It doesn’t make sense when your whole body is warm but your head is freaking freezing…how about a warm beanie to save the day?

3.Hoodie/Sweater

This is another substitute for a tench coat that must be in your winter wardrobe essentials this season. Did I say that sweaters and hoodies are more affordable than trench coats?

4. Boots & Sockings & Gloves

I do not expect you to wear flip flops or any kind of open shoes while walking outside otherwise your feet will freeze so badly…so invest in good pair of knee high boots,ankle boots to complement your look.

Sockings..bring more warmth to your feet as well as gloves to your hands so do not forget to shop for several pairs next time you hit the store.

Those are my winter must haves outwears, i would like to hear yours maybe i could add them to my list. Let me know in the comments section below.
