My Letters To The Little One

…love letters from the Mommy

Post # 11

on August 30, 2011

Hi Baby! 🙂 Mommy can barely talk cause her voice is like, super hoarse na. I’m also feeling quite lethargic, but I have to keep on working so we can buy pretty things for you. *sigh*

Anyhoo, like I said yesterday, you are 15 weeks old already! 🙂 Yaaaaay! 🙂 This is how you look by now.

At 15 weeks! 🙂

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”.

Baby, I’m sure you also feel very exhausted today, and we can barely swallow food. I’m also very worried that Mommy hasn’t gained weight yet, ’cause I’ve been stuck at 120 lbs., and you’re turning four months next week! *sigh* Mommy’s been eating as much as she can. I do hope our doctor will give us really good vitamins so we can get all the nutrition we can get. Bye Baby! 🙂 Don’t worry, we will get our rest soon. 🙂
