Getting A Little Culture
2 days ago
I'm 14 weeks pregnant!Pregnancy Highlights:How Far Along: 14 WeeksSize of baby: About 3.4 inches - the size of a lemon - and weighs around 1.5 ozTotal Weight Gain/Loss: I've gained 1 lbMaternity Clothes: I pulled out a pair of secret fit belly maternity pants today and I am SO glad that I did! Forgot how comfy these suckers are! I am starting to wear certain maternity shirts too. I am still wearing some regular shirts but a lot of them just make me look fat - it seems like maternity shirts are more flattering for a baby belly. They make me feel less fat anyway!Gender: We will find out in 5-6 more weeks!Movement: I know I've felt the baby a couple times over the last few days. I didn't feel Cayden until about 18 weeks so it seems really early to me but maybe since I know what it feels like this time I am able to recognize it sooner? I have felt the baby a couple of nights this week - an hour or two after dinner when I am laying in bed. It has felt like a small amount of pressure leaning into my belly button.Sleep: I'm so tired that I sleep pretty well. If it wasn't for having to get up and pee multiple times in the night, I would sleep great!What I miss: Feeling good and having energy. And I'm starting to get to that part of pregnancy where it's not comfortable to sleep on my stomach and I'm starting to miss that. I'm doing this modified leg hike move and that is working for now.Cravings: Not too much this week. Still in the nothing-sounds-good to me stage.Symptoms: I think I'm slowly feeling better. I ate some leftovers from Olive Garden on Monday for lunch and it had me running to the bathroom. Baby doesn't like Toscana soup, I guess! I haven't felt as good this week as I was hoping but surely it'll be gone soon. Still feel like I need a nap every afternoon. And I think it's just allergies but I have been getting a headache every afternoon that lasts until bedtime. That's spring in Texas for you!Best Moment this week: Hands down - feeling the baby. So excited for the movements to get stronger and frequent! We moved Cayden to a toddler bed and he has done SO well. So proud of him for that!
