14 weeks

How Far Along? 14 weeks

Total Weight Gained/Loss? zero. I went to the Dr. yesterday and she was not overly concerned because I hadn't lost any weight. I told her I would make up for it when I feel like eating again.

Maternity Clothes? Not yet. I'm dreading going down to the basement and pulling out the 3 bins of maternity clothes I have. I'm thinking I'll pretty much live in the four sweat suits I have (once it is cold enough to wear them). Most of my maternity clothes were for work last time.

Sleep? I've been sleeping a little better this week and have been trying to sleep until Julianne wakes up. I'm usually up by 5:30am normally but have been sleeping until around 8 most mornings.

Best Moment of the Week? Finally starting to feel better yesterday. I was able to do some laundry, clean the kitchen, and get out to the store and my Dr.'s appt.

Movement- I think I felt a few little somethings this week but am always confused as to if I am really feeling the baby or if it is just food digesting or gas or something!

Food Craving- I have craved nothing yet because I have not been eating much. I've been living on cereal and soup.

Food aversions- pretty much everything right now. It's getting better though.

Morning sickness- that's an understatement. Morning, afternoon, and evening sickness.

Gender- we will know on September 23rd! Can't wait to find out and start on the nursery.

Labor Signs- no

Belly Button- in

What I miss- having energy to play with Julianne. I have felt like a horrible mother so many times this past week when I am laying on the couch and she is playing by herself....

What I'm looking forward to- feeling better and finding out the gender

Weekly Wisdom- Our precious babe is worth feeling like death for a few more weeks.

Milestones- 2nd trimester!

Here is the baby bump picture for this week. It's coming out in full force and much faster the second time around! Please excuse the fact that I am wearing mis-matched jammies, my hair is pulled back in a scrunchie, and I didn't have time to edit the photo. Thank God my face is covered by the camera because I have no make-up on either!

YAY! Happy 2nd trimester! I remember the exhaustion and I remember the guilt. Please don't be too hard on yourself. Rest up when you can and grow, grow, grow that baby. :)

oh, hopefully you'll have more energy soon. Pregnancy is such a roller coaster that way. I feel for ya!

Sorry you're still feeling so bad!

We'll "find out" on Sept 25th, so if we both need to go get all boys' clothes, maybe we can take the girls on a ride out to the Aurora Outlets!

This too shall pass!

Just stopping by from SITS to say hi; hope you'll do the same.
