15 Weeks Pregnancy Update + Baby Bump Picture!

15 week pregnancy update Wow I can’t believe I am 15 weeks today! I am so excited that I am close to getting my first sonogram and finding out the sex. I should get to schedule my sonogram at my next appointment! I am so excited to hear if we are having a boy or a girl!

I did buy the Kindle version of Belly Laughs, 10th anniversary edition: The Naked Truth about Pregnancy and Childbirth. Jenny McCarthy is the author and she talks about things that most people don’t tell you about being pregnant in this book .I just started it, so far it is pretty good. She has some good humor in the book, doesn’t go into deep details on things, but still so far a good read!

So let’s get to my 15 week pregnancy update, so you can see what has been going on this week!

Size of Baby: Sweet little baby Apley is the size of an apple this week. They can sense light now, so if you shined a flashlight on your tummy the baby would move away from the light. The eyes are still fused shut, but neat they can sense light!

Body and Changes: My bump is getting a bit bigger, I am ready for it to fill out so people know I am pregnant! I have gained a little weight and had a bit of a rough week so I lost a couple of pounds. Luckily today I feel pretty good! My breast are still growing I think, it is just crazy!

Sleep: I have had some restless nights. I wake up with a really bad sour stomach and nausea and it keeps me up. Needless to say I pee a lot through the night. Last night I was shocked, I slept almost all night and woke up just once!

Emotions: I am a bit more leveled out. I have had some days where I felt kind of down. Feeling sick all the time makes it really hard, you just tired of being stuck inside and unable to get out and do stuff. I am trying to remind myself this should go away soon!

Morning Sickness: I feel like it came back pretty good this week. I was down and out most days, and pretty much stayed in my pj’s all day. Today though I am feeling pretty good, thankfully! Hopefully this week will be better and it won’t be so constant.

Cravings: Watermelon is a big one, I just am loving fresh fruits. I also have been wanting cucumbers here and there as well. Of course I can’t go without craving protein especially in the mornings.

What I Miss: I think just feeling good. The constant nausea is rough.

What I Am Looking Forward To: So excited to find out what we are having! I think about it alot!

Old Wives Tales to Predict Your Baby’s Gender (HUGE List)

Old Wives Tales baby gender

What all expecting parents want to know… are you having a BOY or GIRL?! I thought it would be fun to do a post of a bunch of old wives tales on predicting if you will have a boy or a girl! Of Course it is a 50/50 chance of being right! Ha! I know some people swear by these, and others say they have been wrong. So anyway lets get on to see all the old wives tales to predict your baby’s gender!

I can’t wait to find out what we are having, it looks like at 20 weeks we can find out! I have done some of these already to see, some say boy some say girl! Haha who knows could be twins!

Ring Test: If you take your wedding ring, or borrow someones ring if you don’t have one. Tie it to a piece of string, and hang it over your belly with a steady hand. If it swings in a circle it’s a boy, back and forth indicates girl!

Chinese Birth Chart: This one you enter your birth year and such along with when conception day was, and it will predict! Try it now.

Dry hands and cold feet: These are signs of a boy. So, if you’ve got these ailments, points lead to boy!

Morning Sickness: They say if you have a queasy stomach and are stricken with really bad morning sickness, it is a girl. If your morning sickness isn’t so bad, they say boy.

Baking Soda Pee Test: Add a little bit of baking soda into a clear container. Then add the same amount of your urine on top. If the mixture fizzes then it is a boy, if it doesn’t fizzle it’s a girl!

Stealing Your Beauty: Rumor has it if your beauty is gone you are having a girl. If you look more beautiful than before it is a boy! They also say if you break out like crazy it is a girl.

How You Carry:  If you are carrying high your said to be having a girl, low means a boy!

Baby’s Heart Rate:  A lot of people really believe in this one. If your baby’s heart rate is under 140, signs point to boy. If it is over that, signs point to girl!

How Moody Are You: If you are having a girl they say you tend to be a lot more moody! If it is a little boy, you will tend to be more happy!

Whatcha Craving Mama:  Craving sweets, OJ and such indicate girl. Salty and sour cravings along with protein are saying boy!

Is Your Fella Packing on Sympathy Weight:  If your hubby  or boyfriend is packing on a little sympathy weight, they say your having a sweet little girl!

How you Pick Up A Key: Okay if you are the mama, don’t read on with this one. Have someone read this one, so the test will be true. Take a key and place it on the table. Then the mom to be will need to be asked to pick the key up. If she grabs the narrow part, it is a girl. If she grabs the round part at the top, it is a boy!

Dreaming Away: If you have dreams that you are having a boy, you will have a girl. If you dream about having a girl, it will be a boy.

Mayan Predictor:  The Mayan tale is your add the mother’s age at conception and the year of conception together. If the result is an even number your having a girl. If it is an odd number signs point to boy!

Show Me Your Hands: Okay mama’s this one is another you need someone else to read this for it to work. Ask the mom to be to show you her hands. If she does palms up when she shows indicates girl, palms down says boy!

What Color Is your Pee: Here is a different one! If you have bright yellow pee, it is a boy. If it is more dull count on a girl!

Clumsy or Graceful: If you tend to be pretty graceful during your pregnancy signs point to girl! If you are clumsy, they predict boy! I wonder how that works if you are clumsy before you get pregnant, haha!

Side you Sleep On: If you prefer to sleep on your left side, it is a boy. If you are sleeping on your right side more, signs point to girl!

What Do You Think Your Having: They say that mom’s are 71% accurate on the guess of the gender of the baby. So if you feel strongly it is a boy, you just might be right!

Extra Hairy Lately: If your hair on your legs is growing faster than normal they say you are having a handsome boy!

Eat Your Garlic Test: This one is just weird! If the mom-to-be eats a clove of garlic and the smell does not come out of her pores, signs point to girl. If you smell like garlic as it seeps out of your pores, that indicates boy! I couldn’t eat a clove of garlic if you paid me!

Nose Getting Wider: If your nose tends to look wider they say signs point to boy!

Baby Names: If you can only come up with a boy or girl name but can’t decide on the other sex. You will have the gender you can agree on! If you already agree on both, it might be twins?! Hahha!

 

Some of these are a bit crazy but fun to try out and see! Do you know anymore old wives tales for gender prediction!? I can’t wait to see what we are having. Some of these show a boy for us and some are girl. But most are boy so let’s see what we have!!

Did you try any of these when you were pregnant and it be right?! Or know someone who has?!
