15 weeks pregnancy update

Nothing much to report in this past week on the pregnancy front. I think I am a little less tired which is nice. I occasionally listen to Phoenix's heartbeat which is very reassuring, but I leave to counting to once a week. So today I said, I may as well do a full update, weight, HB frequency and belly pic!

I'm up in weight about 4 kg which is a significant improvement with respect to the previous experience where by this time I was up 6.5 Kg. Of course one part of me thinks "is there something wrong??" but let me tell you, it's a very very small part of me! I also started a bit heavier than the last pregnancy, so I can call it even.
Then today finding the HB was a challenge. It really took ages and I think whichever way Phoenix was turned I had to filter out his HB from my whooosh whooosh whooosh. Eventually I could hear it very clearly and it clocked in at 140bpm, nice and bang on average!

I still crave sweet things, and occasionally I can go for crisps (very rarely I give in though!). We have started telling people, sort of when the occasion comes up and not really calling anyone up on purpose. My colleagues were super delighted for me, still I have to tell two of them I really want to know from me, then the others can find out as it becomes more obvious.

No movements yet, though at time I think I am feeling something but it could be just a bubble.

And here it is, my belly pic! Looks quite comparable to the same at 15 weeks with Oliver, I seem to really starting to show around 17 weeks. For now, it looks like a bloated stomach!


  1. WOW! You look great and I am SO glad it's been a ho-hum boring old week being pregnant!!! ;-)

  2. What a lovely baby belly:)
    And how fun sharing the news with your friends!
    The little one has a lot of room moving around there, but hopefully son will settle in an easy position for the Doppler. I know it can be nervous to have to keep looking for the hb.
    Much love, erika

  3. At the end of the pregnancy, the baby and liquid and placenta account for some 8 kg, so you have to deal with what is over that. When it comes to dealing with losing weight. But you've got a long (ish) time until then. Still, time does fly, doesn't it?
    15 weeks... Great picture. You look lovely. And just so that you know, you don't really need toworry about the weight. :-)

  4. You look fabulous. It definitely looks like a pregnant belly and not a bloated belly to me. I'm glad that you are feeling good!

  5. You look cute with your little bump. Glad things are going well.

  6. It looks lovely:) And I'm glad that things are going so well (though, it's a very long few minutes before that reassuring whoosh-whoosh reappears, I know).

  7. Look at that fabulous little belly! So glad to hear everything is going so well!


Thank you so much for stopping by, your comments warm my heart!
