Our Five Ring Circus: 14 Weeks

14 Weeks

I am officially in the second trimester! I am more than happy to say goodbye to the terrible, miserable, morning sickness filled first trimester! I have a feeling that I will be dealing with some morning sickness until the day I deliver, just like my other two, but I'm really looking forward to the improvement that should be coming in the next 4-6 weeks!

DATE: February 7, 2011

How far along:
14 weeks

Total Weight Gained:

How big is baby? Nugget is 3 1/2 inches long, and weighs about 1 1/2 ounces. He/She is the size of a lemon.

How baby is growing: Nugget can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his/her thumb! The facial muscles are getting a workout as his/her tiny features form one expression after another. Nugget can also grasp now. He/She is starting to develop an ultra-fine, downy covering of hair, called lanugo, all over his body.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet. My regular pants are still loose.

Sleep: I fall asleep quickly at night, and sleep well until it's time to wake up to use the bathroom. I've been having crazy dreams! I'm feeling really tired during the day again.

Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:
I honestly can't think of one. I had a really awful week with the nausea/vomiting.

: Feeling flutters, but only when I'm completely still.

Food Cravings: I had a craving for Sesame Chicken on Saturday. It was delicious when I finally got some, but I could only eat a few bites before feeling full.

Food Aversions:
Everything. I'm eating just to survive.

Morning Sickness:
Still sick. Last week was horrible!

Unknown, and not finding out! We've had the names picked out for weeks.

Nausea morning to night, gagging, vomiting, stomach issues, fatigue, frequent use of the bathroom, and braxton hicks contractions. They really kicked in yesterday. They became frequent with Lexie at 14 weeks, as well.

Exercise: Still running 2 miles/3 days a week. I have a feeling the doctor may tell me to slow down to a walk after my appointment.

What I miss:
Enjoying the taste of food and feeling normal.

What I'm looking forward to:
My appointment on Thursday. I can't wait to hear the heartbeat again!
