14 weeks


I'm 14 weeks pregnant today!

Size of Baby: A lemon...about 3 1/2 inches long and 1 1/2 ounces!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I think I'm down around 5-6 pounds again.  I had a rough weekend with nausea, which kept me from being able to eat a whole lot.  Of course the one time in my life that I want to gain weight, I can't. :)

Maternity Clothes: I'm in that awkward stage between normal and maternity pants.  I'm too big for normal pants (despite the weight loss), but I'm too small for maternity pants.  Anytime I'm wearing maternity pants I actually have to stick my belly out a little to keep them up!

Gender: I don't know...I keep flip-flopping.  Noah's referring to it as a "he," which I think is what's making me wonder if it's a boy.  I did have a dream a few nights ago that we went to the gender ultrasound and it was a boy!

Movement: Nothing that I can feel.  But pretty much every time I go to listen to the heartbeat on the doppler, he/she is moving like crazy...I'll find the heartbeat, and it'll only hang around for a few seconds because we're off to a new place!  I think when I finally can feel it, I'm going to feel it A LOT.

Sleep: It's great...I'm only waking up once in the middle of the night, and that's actually working pretty well - I take my vitamins then, and go right back to sleep, because if I take them any other time they make me sick.  So it works out!

What I miss: Nothing at all!  I finally got the guts up to take my first bath (as opposed to shower...yes, I do bathe :)) since I found out this week.  I'm slowly getting the courage to try things that are still ok, but scare you during pregnancy!

Cravings: Not really many this week.  I'm getting my appetite back (most of the time), so there aren't just certain things I will eat.  Don't laugh at this - but I have been DYING for Ramen Noodles!  I don't know why to save my life, but several nights this week that's all that has sounded good.  So weird, especially since I haven't wanted pasta since I got pregnant!

Symptoms:  Sickness, on and off.  I can tell a HUGE difference if I don't take Zofran at least once a day.  I tried not taking it this weekend, and if I hadn't known better, I would have thought I had a stomach bug...it was bad.  So I've started taking it once in the afternoons, even if I'm not too bad, just because it will get bad if I don't.  Still going to bed pretty early too!

Best Moment This Week: Finally realizing that I do have a little bit of a bump that's not all bloat! :)  And getting to hear the heartbeat on the doppler...that is so much fun.
