14 Week Update

How far along: 14 weeks


Baby Size: A nectarine


Weight gain: Still afraid of the scale.. I'll know for sure at my 16 week appointment!

Maternity clothes:  Yep. Still loving the maternity pants and my non-maternity tops.

Sleep: I'd been taking B6 and Unisom at night during my first trimester to take the edge off the nausea during the day, and while it may have worked some, I've decided to wean myself off of it.  When I was taking the Unisom I was sleeping like a baby, but now that I'm off of it I've noticed myself waking up more often during the night.

Gender: Bows all the way!

Movement: Not yet.

Best moment this week: Having a coworker ask if I'm pregnant! Her approach was a little suprising, since most people wouldn't dare assume (out loud) that a woman is pregnant until it's wildly obvious.  My bump is still small enough to pass as having maybe having just gained a few stress pounds, BUT it's nice to have someone random confirm my growing bump. 

Looking forward to: Seeing my parents tonight! They haven't seen me since I started to show, so I can't wait to see their reactions!

Food cravings: Chic-fil-a.  Like, all the time.  I'm not above eating multiple meals there a day.

Anything making you queasy or sick: After the hurricane hit late last week, everything in our laundry room and backyard AND at my office smells like mildew.  It turns my stomach big time.

Labor Signs: Way too early just yet! 

What I miss: Soft cheeses in my salads.

Symptoms: The back pain is still raging.  I tend to get headaches in the afternoon. Yesterday I freaked out for about an hour because I had (very very light) spotting.  My SIL assured me that it was completely normal and that she'd had it a few times during her pregnancy.  As of this morning there's no more spotting, so I'm chalking that up to one of the many weird occurences of a normal pregnancy.

Nursery: Shopping for the baby's dresser with my mom when I go to Raleigh this weekend.  Also looking at rockers..

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: Excited and a little panicky at the same time.  In the past week things have started to feel even more real.  I caught myself staring at my profile in the reflection of my car window while I pumped gas yesterday, and began wondering if my baby will resemble me at all.

Workouts: Waiting for the weather to get a little cooler so I can resume my evening walks around the neighborhood.
