Sharing all of my symptoms. cravings, highs, and lows of being 14 weeks pregnant. Plus, an update on the baby’s size and gender predictions.
Hey again! Thank you all so much for your well wishes and congratulations on my big news. Jesse and I are so excited for our little bundle of joy to join our family in April! This week I have been feeling a little better as far as nausea goes, but definitely still struggling especially in the evenings. One of my best friends is getting married this weekend and I’m roadtripping with my girlfriends to the wedding, so I’m hoping for a good weekend in regards to not feeling very sick so I can have a good time!
How far along? 14 Weeks
Baby Size: A lemon
Total weight gain/loss: My scale isn’t the same as the doctor’s office, but I’ve gained back most of the 6 pounds I lost.
Maternity clothes? Two pairs of maternity leggings (which are amazing) and a Belly Band since I can’t button any of my pants any longer. I’m also thinking I will buy a new dress for the wedding.
Stretch marks? Still not yet
Sleep: I’ve been tossing and turning more frequently, which makes getting up for work a struggle, but I’m still clocking 8-9 hours a night.
Best moment this week: Setting up my maternity leave through my work. I can’t wait to have time off with my baby!
Miss Anything? Still missing my energy, but fingers crossed that returns soon.
Movement: Not yet, but hoping to feel some soon!
Food cravings: Dr. Pepper has been replaced with Coke and I can’t get enough Brunswick Stew!
Gender prediction: Jesse and I both still think boy.
I can’t wait for this weekend with my best girlfriends. I’m nervous about the three hour car ride and being tired most of the time, but we will still have great time! Have a good weekend all!
