14 Weeks

22 February 2011

Baby's now the size of a lemon! Personally, I've got to say this is weird to me, because I would have thought that a peach is bigger than a lemon. However, John (my resident lemon squeezer at Chick-fil-A says that sometimes lemons are really big), and I guess all that really matters is that baby is 3.4". Our sweet little one is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, making urine (which is kinda weird), and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys, and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over her body for warmth.

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 14 Weeks
Size of baby: Lemon
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 1-2 lbs. ? This is really hard to tell, cause it fluctuates quite a bit.
Cravings: Nothing crazy, but not my 'typical diet.' Mostly I'm eating whatever actually sounds good and that stays down...tends to be a lot of carbs.
Symptoms: I can tell I'm starting to have a little more energy again. Maybe it's just that I'm pushing myself to do more than just crash on the couch when I get home from work...either way I've been much more productive the past few days than I have in the previous few weeks. I'm definitely still tired, but working through it. Still not gonna mention anything about any sickness, as I'm trying to avoid jinxing myself. :)

Our next doctor's appointment is next Wednesday, March 2. Is it weird to anyone else that March is next week? I'm glad for it...I'm ready for spring to get here. We've had such fantastic weather lately, I'm afraid it's just a tease and that we'll get another snow. Anyway, back to the appointment, this will be a sonogram appointment, so we will be able to hear the heartbeat this time. I don't really have a belly to show yet...I will take pictures of that when it finally comes. I can definitely tell it's growing, but I don't think I look pregnant yet. I'm ok with that though. I'm officially putting John on ultrasound-picture-loading-to-the-blog duty. I know yall know it's not that I'm technologically stupid, but I just spent 30 minutes arguing with the scanner and I'm fed now it's his job. :)

I hope all is well with all of you. Have a splendid week! Oh! I forgot to tell you...later on this week I am going to update the blog with the status of where we are with Chick-fil-A. I was thinking about it the other night, and there's only so much to tell about the baby right now and this is our family I might as well update on you on what else is going on with our life, right? Right. Until then...

  1. Yay for 14 weeks!!! Is that officially 2nd trimester? Glad you're getting some energy back - it's amazing how something so little can make you so tired! Love you all.
