How far along: 14 weeks
Baby size: Baby is the size of a jalapeno!
Baby's progress: Baby is doubling in weight each week. He/she is starting to move even though I can't feel it yet.
Weight gain: None so far but I'm definitely starting to show more.
Stretch marks: None
Sleep: Not too bad. Still getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and occasionally its hard to get comfortable.
Gender: We find out next week! I'm still thinking girl but I would be so so happy either way.
Movement: None yet but I cannot WAIT!
Best moment this week: Not pregnancy related, but as you can see from my picture I cut my hair! I don't know exactly how many inches I got rid of but it was a ton. My friend Katie always does such a great job with my hair and I am loving my easy, low maintenance, mom hair cut/color ; )
Looking forward to: Our gender ultrasound!
Food cravings: Still on a fruit kick. Fresh fruit, fruit smoothies, fruit juice, anything with lots and lots of fruit. I had fresh squeezed orange juice at brunch this week and it was literally the best thing I've ever had.
Weirdest food I ate this week: Nothing too out of the ordinary.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really but I am having aversions to most meats, especially chicken.
Labor signs: Nope
What I miss: Not much
Symptoms: My skin has started to settle down a good bit so I assume the craziness was just the new pregnancy hormones. Who knows, but I'm glad it's getting better! I've started getting slight headaches every night. Drinking more water has helped though :)
Things that suck: Not much. I am truly enjoying this pregnancy, which I didn't really get to experience as much when I was pregnant with Bennett. I was obviously SO thankful to be pregnant but when you're sick as much as I was it's just not as fun. I am extremely grateful that this time has been different and I've really been able to enjoy it.
Things that don't suck: Starting to have more of a bump. It's definitely bigger at the end of the day but I can't wait to be out of this "middle" stage where people can't tell whether I'm pregnant or just gaining weight!
I'd love to hear your guesses on whether you think Baby is a boy/girl! We will announce next Thursday night (Mar. 24th) !!
