14 Weeks and Blue Puppy Onsie
My mom sent us this little onsie that I used to wear as a newborn. She said even though I was a girl she liked me in blue because it matched my eyes (they are now light green).
She sent it so our little lemon drop can wear it too. I swear it still smells like a baby. We even have been trying to get Honey to smell it so she can get used to the scent.
Sometimes I put on my chest near my shoulder and hold it like baby is actually there. It sounds silly but it melts my heart. I can’t believe we are going to have something so tiny and precious of our own.
Week 14: Baby is the size of a lemon
Liver, kidney, and spleen are continuing to develop…
Total weight gain: I still don’t know but I’m sure it’s more than 12lbs (last week). I feel really chubby lately and I’m pretty down on myself about it. I wish I was one of those people who only gained in the tummy. I see it pretty much all over. Especially my face.
How I’m feeling: I’m feeling better. Not nauseous at all and I have some energy back. I still get winded pretty easily though and the other day I carried a tray of cupcakes out to the car (we have to park semi far away) and by the time I got to the car it felt like I had walked a mile. I can’t imagine what it will be like when I’m HUGE. I’m still getting headaches too.
Maternity clothes? Nothing new but I desperately need maternity tights. I hate tights but have to wear them at work.
Stretch marks? Not yet
Sleep: Not great. I’m so tired at the end of the night but I sleep even lighter than I used to. We live next to a hospital and last night I heard a helicopter flying around the hospital for about 30 minutes. Car alarms kept going off and the people above us’ dog kept thumping on the floor. It was not a good nights sleep. I still have to take Unisom every night or I will just toss and turn and never fall asleep.
Exercise: Just my walk to work from the metro and back. It feels like enough right now but I swear I am opening that workout DVD this week.
Best moment this week: Making our appointment to find out the gender of the baby. We will know in 2 weeks. We can’t wait!
Miss Anything? Still missing my raw tuna and craving it. I miss my old wardrobe too.
Movement: None yet
Food cravings: Thai food — which husband took me to get for lunch over the weekend. I NEEDED Pad Thai. Also red meat. I crave steak a couple nights a week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still can’t take the smell of the dog in the car. Also I opened the pantry where we keep the garbage a few days ago and there must have been SOMETHING bad in there. I literally ran to the bathroom to throw up. Terrible.
Have you started to show yet: Definitely have a little bump. It still could be interpreted for pretty big pot belly though.
Gender prediction: Still think it’s a boy.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On but they are getting tight.
