14 Weeks!

How big is baby this week? Baby is the size of a lemon.

Due Date: May 8, 2012

Weight Gain: Up a pound.

Symptoms: Less nausea- not taking my meds everyday!!!!  Motion sickness is worse, even driving to and from work can get pretty miserable.  Brushing my teeth also causes some major gagging.  I'm also have issues with my sciatic nerve- ouchy.  Still going to bed early, but definitely more awake during the day. 

Cravings: Water, sushi, tacos and pickles (not all together).

Aversions: Still anything very saucy

Sleep: Go to bed early (around 8 or 8:30).

I am loving: not being sick all the time!

I miss: raw tuna, and wine

I am looking forward to: Gender ultrasound November 23!

I'm spazzing about: all those pregnancy/ parenting books I need to get through

Best thing about this week: Going to one of my sorority sister's weddings and getting to catch up with my AXOs!!  It's awesome to have friends be so excited about our baby!

Milestones: Officially in the second trimester!!!!

Movement: Nada

It's a...: No idea yet.


  1. Ah, the glorious second trimester. Those are the good ol' days!! ;) Enjoy this part. You actually start looking pregnant and bump-y, and yet you aren't so huge that you're miserable. You feel more like 'you' and it is just the best part! Soak it up!

  2. Its so funny- I started gagging after watching my husband brush his teeth this week. Completely weird. Oh and I feel the same way about the books- it seems so overwhelming! Can't wait to hear what you are having!

  3. Haven't popped by your blog in awhile but was so excited to see your news when I finally did! Congratulations! So glad that you are starting to feel better...2nd trimester is such a fun time!

    Oh, and a bit of advice on the books...don't feel like you have to read them all cover-to-cover. I recommend skimming through them all, picking the ones that jive with your personality/philosophy, and then going back and actually reading those. I checked out a ton from the library and then bought my favorites on Half.com (for the record, those faves were Happiest Baby on the Block, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer, Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child, and The Nursing Mother's Companion.
