This will be a short and sweet post-mainly because I'm tired and it's 9:30 and I missed my daily nap today.
How far along? 14 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: No clue at the moment. I was down another 2 last week, so probably about 13-15 lbs overall.
Maternity clothes? I busted out the first pair of maternity pants today because I was feeling unusually chubby and round. I am considering never wearing zipper/button jeans again.
Sleep: Saying I love it would be an understatement. I am FINALLY sleeping through the night and past 7 am consistently, which is a HUGE blessing.
Best moment this week:Getting out of the first tri!
Movement: Little taps and nudges here and there, which my OB and all my lovely LJ ladies have confirmed is, in fact, movement.
Food cravings: Nothing. Morning sickness kicked up full swing this week and doesn't show signs of leaving any time soon. Hang around all you want, nausea. You don't bother me. (Coming back to correct myself- I can't get enough Chick-fil-A lemonade. I drink it by the GALLON.)
Gender: We are leaning GIRL, but have no preference.
Labor Signs: No, thank you.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: NOTHING this week. I am so thankful to be pregnant and wouldn't trade it for anything.
What I am looking forward to: Finding out what Baby is hopefully sooner rather than later.
Weekly Wisdom: Appreciate every moment. I have had four friends lose babies this summer past the 20 week mark and it's heartbreaking. Appreciate the nausea, the back pain-everything. (Same this this week.)
Milestones: Right now, every day is a milestone. I am more pregnant than I have ever been, so everyday is a huge deal. Our goal is 40 weeks, 37 at the earliest, so every day is one day closer to our goal. (Same as last week, but still how I feel)
What is Baby up to?
Baby is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, and (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over the body for warmth.
That's it for tonight folks.
