14 Weeks (Catching Up)

I decided that in an effort to get my blogging mojo back I'm going to start doing weekly (or bi-weekly) updates on how the whole pregnancy thing is going. I've seen several other preggo bloggers doing this, and I think it's a fun way to update people. Plus, it should be fun to look back and see how I was feeling at different stages.

I'm 15 weeks and 4 days today, but I think I'll start with last week. So here we go with 14 weeks!

 Can you tell I hate taking solo pictures? So awkward...

Due Date
May 1, 2013

This Week Baby A....
Can now squint, grimace, frown, pee (awesome) and maybe suck it's thumb! Baby is about the size of a lemon, around 3 1/2 inches and weighing in at about 1 1/2 ounces. 

Oh-so-very tired. Thankfully I'm feeling much better in pretty much all other areas, so I can deal with the sleepiness. 

Weight Gain
About 3 pounds 

Gender (prediction)
I've really been thinking boy since day one, but everyone else is predicting girl. Can't wait to know for sure!

Food Cravings/Aversions
Amazingly, not having any crazy cravings. The only big thing is sweets, which I'm trying to get a handle on. Oh, and deep dish black olive and mushroom pizza from the new place right around the corner...it's just way too convenient.

Not feeling anything yet

Not great. Still getting up to visit the bathroom a couple times a night, and tossing and turning a lot. Having a lot of back pain, so finding a comfy spot is difficult. 

What I Miss
Martinis! And sushi! I guess maybe this should go under cravings, because I would do anything for an extra dirty martini and a TDF roll from our favorite sushi place. Sigh.

Daddy's Thoughts
Excited! I hear "I can't wait until the baby's here" pretty frequently these days :)

Fun Moments
A tiny bump is starting to pop out! It's not much, but I'm still excited. 

Looking Forward To
Hearing the little heartbeat at our appointment next week!

I was going to take a pic and do my 15 week update today, but Arsen was kind enough to suggest that I wait until tomorrow. I haven't showered yet today and we've been painting the nursery and cleaning, so needless to say I'm not looking my best. Gotta love a brutally honest man.


  1. You are just too cute! Can't wait to find out if you're having a boy or girl!

  2. It's been a while since I stopped by so congrats on the baby and these update posts are cute!!

  3. Glad you're feeling better! You'll get some more energy and be able to sleep better soon, I PROMISE! I had back pain almost my whole pregnancy and found stretching and a heating pad to really help! You look gorgeous, I can't wait to see that little bump get bigger. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment...each and every one makes my day just a little bit brighter!
