Week 15 – Avocado

The Baby is the size of an avocado

Started feeling him move

He’s Moving!

He is not sure if he really felt it or if it was wishful thinking but we are both super excited. It makes it even more real..”

The baby is moving – I can feel it and it’s awesome. It’s not kicking yet but more of a sense of swimming against the walls of the placenta. It’s such a wonderful feeling it’s hard to describe. There’s clearly a person inside me and he’s making space and exploring his world.

My husband felt it too, after a couple of attempts. He is not sure if he really felt it or if it was wishful thinking but we are both super excited. It makes it even more real.

 

The belly keeps growing and getting more compact. It’s still not clearly visible under the clothes but it’s there šŸ™‚
 
We had another appointment at the gynaecologist and saw the baby. It seems like everything is going very well, he was moving around and having hiccups. You could see the heart becoming more differentiated, with two heart chambers popping up on the screen. He’s awesome and I think he’s enjoying his time in the pool.
 
The doctor confirmed the iron levels keep decreasing. This means it is now time to start taking an iron supplement. This explains why I’ve been so tired. On one hand, I hope this won’t make my digestion even slower. On the other, if that will give me enough fuel for the day, then I’m all in. Let’s see.
 
This week, I’ve also had a Pilates exam, which went well. I also made some progress in the fieldwork required for the psychometric training. Between that, the baby and the arrangements to move to our new home, life is busy and exciting at the moment.
 
Things are pretty amazing right now.
