14 Weeks: Baby Crockett 2.0 (a few days late)

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

Due Date: May 8, 2014

Weight Gain: Up about a pound.

Symptoms: Well, I've had days with less nausea and days with more nausea this week, so really hoping it's letting up, since it's not really consistent anymore.    Some heartburn, and still a lot of fatigue- I think Emersyn adjusted better to Daylight Savings than I did.

Cravings: Burgers, sushi

Aversions: Pretty much everything is the evenings.

Sleep: Go to bed early or fall asleep on the couch.  Waking up a couple of times a night.

I am loving: Having a couple days here and there that I haven't felt as sick.

I miss: raw tuna, and a margarita

I am looking forward to: Our gender ultrasound is this Friday!

I'm spazzing about: All the stuff to purchase for Baby #2 (or E, when Baby #2 gets her furniture).

Best thing about this week: Enjoyed celebrating my friend Rebecca at her shower and bachelorette party.

Milestones: Officially in the second trimester!!!!

Movement: Tiny little flutters

It's a...: No idea yet.
