14 Weeks Baby #3



How far along: 14 weeks.

How big is baby: Baby is just over 3 1/2 inches and comparable to the size of a lemon.

Weight gain/loss: No gain/no loss. Holding my own.  I imagine now that I am in the second trimester and I am able to hold down some of what I eat.  I will see a gain.

Stretch marks: So many from K & P… I have no idea if there are any new ones Winking smile

Sleep:  UGH! Sleep is already hard and has been from the start.  No big surprise since I had to give up my long love affair with Ambien… But, I have been napping which makes night time sleep harder… I also always get restless leg syndrome (or what feels like RLS)  when pregnant…this pregnancy is no different. 

Cravings/Aversions: I crave carbs and fruit… I can not get enough fruit ( Cantaloupe and grapes are my current faves but I eat them all) I am also craving fountain Coke… I gave up soda prior to my weight loss surgery and I honestly thought I would never have it again… well lets just say it tastes as good as it did pre surgery and if you bring me a coke from McDonalds I will love you forever.

No real aversions… I never know what will end up being an issue.

Movement: I think I have felt some flutters…

What I'm loving: I'm loving how quickly Katy and Patrick have come around to having a new baby.  Patrick even kisses my tummy goodnight.  Katy loves picking out things for baby.

Symptoms: Well, I had a pretty typical first tri: constant nausea, absolute exhaustion. Second tri has started out a bit easier less vomiting… a little more energy.

What I'm looking forward to: I am looking forward to enjoying this spring weather… and hoping the nesting instinct kicks in sooner than later.

Best moment of the week: Easter fun with the family!
