14 Weeks

Well yesterday marks 14 weeks! April 3-9

I am so glad that time is moving right along because I am dying to know the sex of our yy and to maybe get some of my energy back (or maybe that is just wishful thinking?) ha!

Here is what we have been up to this week:

Weight Gain:  I am still down several pounds which my doc said is okay as long as I am still in fact eating ha!

Maternity Clothes: yes, I finally have a couple of pairs of pants that I actually enjoy wearing, shirts for the most part are not maternity. yet.

Sleep: good, I fall asleep pretty easily and besides getting up to go to the restroom I am sleeping right through the night.  I can't seem to get enough sleep.
Best Moment of this week:  in our 4th MONTH!!!
& no news on the ultrascreening which is a good sign.  My kids finally know along with the rest of the teachers I work with-- now I'm not worried about trying to hide the "bump" ha

Movement: we saw last week on the ultrasound but I still have no idea what it actually feels  like so no. 
Food cravings:  I have no idea but I seem to be eating subs a lot this week

What I miss: my energy.

Gender: I'm totally on the fence.  No clue but I am going to stick with my gut- girl. 

Weekly Wisdom: Just trying to enjoy still being able to get around comfortably, sleep comfortably, etc.

What I'm looking forward to: just dying to know the gender. :)

The Baby in week 14:
Now the size of your clenched fist, your baby is more fluid-like in his movements, so he’s no longer doing the jerk every time he repositions his arms and legs. Other developments this week include a roof of his own (inside his mouth, that is) as well as intestinal activity: His intestines are producing meconium (which is the waste that will make up his first bowel movement after birth). He is also sporting a downy coating of hair (lanugo) that keeps him nice and warm. Not to worry — you won't give birth to a monkey; baby fat will accumulate over the next few months and take over the function of keeping your baby warm and toasty —allowing most of that hair to shed.

Your body in week 14:
Welcome to the second trimester! With any luck, your breasts aren't quite as tender as they were last trimester and your energy level is making a comeback. More good news on the horizon: less morning sickness and fewer trips to the potty to pee. You might find yourself feeling pregnancy aches on the lower sides of your abdomen about now as the muscles and ligaments that support your growing uterus stretch. And though it might be a pain in the — well, lower abdomen — it's pain with a gain and a sign that it won't be long now until your body finally starts to show that you're expecting.

  1. Congratulations!!! I'm amazed you haven't gained weight yet. I was already a monster by four months! Twins will do that to you!

    Enjoy! Do you have your 20-week sono scheduled??
