14 Weeks!

I am officially 35% through this pregnancy. I've been battling a pretty nasty cold this last week that has kept me feeling yucky. Of course, being knocked up and all, I can't take any of the good medicine and have to stick with saline nose spray and cough drops. I'm finally feeling better though and I do believe the worst of the morning/afternoon/all day long sickness is over along with my insatiable appetite for naps.

It is also official that I am rocking the maternity wear now. Those stretchy pants are so dang comfortable that I'm not really sure why all women don't wear them. Or as least wear them on Thanksgiving. I went out and picked up a couple of shirts this afternoon that are longer and transform my pudge into a faux bump. I still don't have any really baby bump to speak of. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks that will start to change. 

So, onto this weeks stats:
How far along: 14 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Up 1, for a total of 6
Symptoms: Hyper-smell and tastes. James says I'm moody too.
Maternity clothes: Yep. Super cute ones too.
Stretch marks?: No thank you.

Sleep: No so good this week because of a cold. Sleeping on my stomach is also starting to be slightly uncomfortable.
Best moment this week: Moving into the 2nd trimester by all measures
Movement: Not yet but could start soon :)
Food cravings: Ramen noodles and orange juice
Gender: It's a girl. I just "know".
What I miss: A really good Riesling at night
Milestones: Baby is sucking her thumb.

On to #2...

Second trimester, that is. Or at least it is according to some people. For others it is 13 weeks or 13 weeks and 3 days. I'm going with 12 because it means I don't have to wait any more because I am officially 12 weeks and 1 day!

We had an appointment with the midwife this afternoon, and all looks well with me and baby. She even did a quick (and unexpected) ultrasound to seen Bean. She was wiggling and bouncing around and James made the comment that our kiddo may have a future as a break dancer. For your viewing pleasure:

I think I'm going to start doing a weekly update to give you a rundown of the latest stats. It will encourage me to keep you in the loop. I'll even start doing a belly picture as soon as it is baby belly and not jelly belly.

How far along: 12 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Up 1, for a total of 5
Symptoms: Hyper-smell, really tired, and mid-afternoon sickness
Maternity clothes: Stretchy pants are the bomb for realz! Why doesn't everyone wear these things???
Stretch marks?: Nope
Sleep: Just the once a night bathroom break is interrupting it
Best moment this week: Seeing our little beat-boxing baby on the ultrasound
Movement: Not yet
Food cravings: Orange juice and tapioca pudding
Gender: It's a girl. I just "know".
What I miss: Staying up later
Milestones: Baby is the size of an plum and has fingernails!
