How far along: 14 weeks
Size of Baby: A lemon
Gender: We don’t know yet, but can not wait to find out
Movement: Not yet but hopefully any day now
Weight Gain: +3
Sleep: Doing much better! Still waking up a few times a night to switch from hip to hip (side to side is what a normal person would say probably) and use the bathroom. But overall, 50x better! Disclaimer: I also had a nice hotel bed to myself all week because I was out of town for a business trip so that might have helped 😉
Workouts: Fail. Well, sort of! I worked one day at the hotel gym and then two days I walked around a trade show floor for 6+ hours so…I’m counting that.
Maternity Clothes: I’m on the hunt for some great maternity leggings. I’ve exhausted all of my local options so I’m heading online. Anyone have any advice?
Symptoms: My hunger is back in full force, that’s for sure! A little lower back pain if I’m on my feet for too long but nothing unmanageable. The worst thing right now is probably breast tenderness (sorry if that’s TMI) but if that is the worst part of my day I’ll take it!
Cravings/Aversions: Nothing specific that I can think of. Carbs in general have been really doing it for me lately though – can not get enough! But that’s not that out of character
Missing Most: I really, really missed caffeine this week. I didn’t think I relied on it much before I was pregnant (a cup of coffee in the morning and maybe a soda once a week in the afternoon) but now that I actually get tired in the afternoon I could really use it! I don’t mind doing a little everyday but I could honestly use an IV of it!
Nursery: Apparently, we have made a decision and I didn’t know it! To be honest I had my mind made up but didn’t think we had already decided. Luckily, our decision was the same as mine 😉
Nathan: Missed “me and the baby” while I was on my trip this week. Insert all of the heart eyed emojis here. Love that guy.
Best Part of the Week: Beginning to look obviously pregnant. Several people noticed…and commented lol. Which is funny but I really didn’t mind!
Can’t Wait For: Seeing our babe at our ultrasound this coming week!
