How far along? 14 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 7 pounds gained.
Maternity clothes? I actually wore a pair of maternity jeans from my last pregnancy because I had to go to a meeting. Leggings just wouldn’t cut it :o). They were definitely too big, so I’m back to just my regular clothes and things with elastic waistbands.
Best moment this week: It’s been an all around good week. Very productive at work. I’d say the best moment was going out to eat as a family last night. It’s been a while since I’ve been feeling well enough to sit in a restaurant.
Miss Anything? I miss feeling great and definitely coffee.
How are you sleeping? Each night is different. My mind has been very busy with work when I lay down at night. But I’ve been doing some meditating before bed which has helped a lot. So I wake up to go to the bathroom twice each night and have been falling right back to sleep!
Movement: I don’t feel kicks or flutters yet. But I do feel Baby move around, because I notice pressure in different spots (mainly my bladder).
Food cravings: My two girlfriends and I took our boys out to lunch 2 weeks ago and I ordered a reuben. Totally not my kind of meal, but when I read it on the menu my mouth started watering. Since then I’ve been dreaming about the moment I’d get to bite into that sandwich again. We finally went back last night for dinner and I ordered it. It was SO delicious! AND, this week, I went to Chick-fil-A to get a frozen lemonade. When I walked in, the overwhelming smell of french fries was delicious. So, I caved and got a small order of fries with my frozen lemonade. I haven’t had fries in YEARS. They really hit the spot.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Life. I pretty much feel queasy constantly. If it gets too overwhelming, I just need to stop what I’m doing until the wave passes. Pretty annoying. Can’t wait to be past this!
Have you started to show yet: Yea. My friends at the gym have told me that I look pregnant. It’s hard to tell from this picture, but I definitely see it. I also notice that I’m gaining wider and higher than I did with Turner.
Gender: I definitely have my prediction….way more sick this time around and gaining differently than with Turner. BUT trying not to get too carried away. I’ll know this week!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy for the most part. I have moments of, “I can’t wait to feel better” but I’m just focusing on the fact that this is temporary and it could be much worse!
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender, getting past my morning sickness, and celebrating Easter!
