Since people keep asking me how far along I am, I figure I should keep up with my pregnancy surveys a little bit better! Here it is for this week:
How far along? 14 weeks and 5 days
Total weight gain/loss: 5 pounds up… though it feels like much more.
Maternity clothes? Oh yes, indeed. All my pants are maternity and some of my shirts.
Sleep: It’s been pretty good lately, I am feeling more rested than I was in the beginning.
Best moment this week: Browsing at the baby furniture store, which is SO much fun!
Movement: Pretty sure I am starting to feel light movement! I can definitely hear it on the doppler, and am starting to feel odd sensations that I am guessing are the baby wiggling. Nothing definitive yet, but I don’t think it will be long. My placenta was anterior with Knox so I didn’t feel him until 21 weeks- this is a big difference!
Food cravings: Sweet tea (which I make decaf at home), cheese and crackers and sour candy.
Gender: ? Only 13 days until we find out, and I am sticking with my guess of “boy.”
Labor Signs: No thank you.
Belly Button in or out? Oh my poor belly button. I’ll end up having to have belly button reconstructive surgery after this. I swear, the second the second line appeared my belly button started to pop out. It is so bizarre looking!
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach, not having migraines (which are wretched, by the way).
What I am looking forward to: Gender ultrasound, nursery decorating
Weekly Wisdom: If you do get a pregnancy migraine, drinking something with a little caffeine does help, even if you have been avoiding it. It only takes a little bit to make you feel better!
Milestones: It will be a milestone if this spotting stays away, so let’s hope it does! It’s been about a day and a half with nothing, so far.
