How far along?14 weeks 6 days
Total weight gain/loss: I like the drs numbers better. We’re looking at like 3lbs :). I didn’t actually weigh myself this morning so I’m not sure where I’m at but last I knew 10-11 lbs via my scales. My scales suck though, long story.
How big is baby? The baby is size of a Lemon this week. 3.4 inches long and weighing in at about 1.5 ounces.
- Baby is probably sucking its thumb and wiggling its toes in there.
- Kidneys are making urine and the liver and spleen are doing their jobs, too.
- Baby is also growing lanugo, a thing, peach-fuzz-like hair, all over the body — This will help keep baby warm.
Maternity Clothes? I have them but they aren’t a must right now. When I first got pregnant we got a couple pair of larger sized jeans to get me through for a while and I can still get them on.
Stretch Marks?Um… I’m not really seeing any but I guess I haven’t looked for a while.
Best moment this week?I got to hear the babies heart beat again. I know it sounds crazy but with the “fun” scares we’ve had, it is extremely nice to hear the heart beat to know it’s still alive in there. We also heard it kicking even though I can’t feel it yet.
Movement?I heard the movement on the heart beat monitor.
Food Cravings/Aversions?I’m still not feeling steak. Sad day. Also this seasoning we get at our local Amish store that is Bacon and Onion Dip Mix, even the thought of that makes me want to hurl. I am absolutely LOVING pasta (what’s new) and Alfredo sauce. My favorite is the store bought Bertolli.
What I miss:My clothes fitting. Actually having a lot of clothes that fit.
What I’m looking forward to:They’ve scheduled me for an ultra sound in a month. I’m not sure why but I won’t question it either because yey! I get to see baby again.
Nausea/Vomiting?It comes and goes right now. Now that I’m in the 2nd Trimester (wait when did that happen) they say it should let up. We’ll see. This week has been touch and go.
Labor signs?Let’s sure hope not! Way to early!
Gender?Don’t know we’re still a few weeks away from knowing 🙁
Belly Button in or out?still in…
Wedding rings on or off?On.
Sleep?I hurt most mornings that I have woken up this week 🙁
Weekly Wisdom:So weirdness, I sometimes have a shy bladder I guess. Anyway the last time I went to the doctor I couldn’t pee in the cup to save my life so they didn’t get a sample. This time I woke up at 7:30 and had to go but refused since my appointment was at 8:20 and I was afraid that I wouldn’t have to go then. Yeah I almost filled that cup this time where as the last time I actually did get them some I got them very little. Hahaha! And while we’re talking about pee cause why not… I keep waking myself up at night with dreams of someone peeing in my sleep, I guess that’s how I know that I need to go. Ok out of the TMI area now 🙂
Due Date: Thursday June, 26, 2014. They’re using this as the due date again.
