How far along? 14 weeks - 2nd trimester!!!
|Your baby is the size of a lemon (source)|
Total weight gain/loss: 1lb gain total (lost .5 lbs from last week)
Maternity Clothes? yep! Sister In Law brought me some more on Labor Day weekend! Such a blessing!
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep? Sleeping well. Lots of vivid dreams. Last night I dreamt I was in a competitive ping pong tournament. It was me vs. hundreds of people. I had this ex-con on my team, this huge guy and I pinned him down and put my hand on his throat saying "Get in the game!" and he was like "really? you're trying to choke me? Your hands don't even fit around my throat". See? Crazy When I woke up I was winning the game 8-7. Does this mean my child will be a professional ping pong player?!?!?
Best moment this week: Probably the free maternity clothes! And announcing it on Facebook!
Hidden at the end of our Jamaica pictures was this:
Do you see the baby footprints in the middle?
Miss Anything? allergy medicine! Living in the plains of Texas means the wind blows in from all over! The weather channel said there was a high pollen count this week. I also read that pregnant women's sinus's get clogged up during their 2nd trimester...who know knows what it is.
Movement: none - a girl in my "March Mommy" Facebook group says she's already feeling movement. I find that hard to believe...
Food cravings: none but I'm loving all fruits and vegetables. Not really interested in meats just b/c the hormones and antibiotics. Only eating organic chicken for now.
Anything making your queasy or sick? I can't really eat a lot. If I eat too much my throat hurts and I've very uncomfortable. Acid reflex but without the burn.
Have you started to show yet? yep. wore all black yesterday. VERY slimming!
Symptoms: Sciatic nerve pain, back pain and horrible sinus pressure. Got a massage today, but that loosened up my muscles so much, they hurt even more!
Labor signs: none
Belly button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? off! I thought I cracked my knuckle too hard, but turns out my fingers are just swollen! bye bye for now rings!
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy. Everyone knows we are pregnant and all is good! Pray for us!
Looking forward to: finding out the gender, buying baby stuff, being a mom! BFF from Miami's response to the news: "You'll make great parents". That's the best compliment yet!
