14 Weeks


Since I was in Mexico, I didn't take my weekly picture, so here is a true belly shot!  Goodbye cutie figure!
*My sweet friend Kelly took this picture.  She has an amazing talent for photography.  If you have a minute, check out her pictures on her blog!*
I'm 14 weeks along!  This has gone by really quickly so far, I just can't believe we are 3 1/2 months already!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: Baby is the size of a lemon

Total Weight Gain: Gained 3 lbs

Belly Growth: 4 inches

Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but I did go up a size in my pants - my normal sizes are just too tight around my belly!  My wonderful friend and neighbor brought over two HUGE bags of her maternity clothes last night.  I am so grateful and cannot wait to go through them!

Gender: We find out the day before Thanksgiving!  15 more days!

Movement: Not yet, but I'm so excited to feel the baby!  Sometimes I wonder if it's okay in there :)

Sleep: I just started sleeping all the way through the night.  And, I am less tired, so I only need about 7 1/2 hours again, which is wonderful.

Symptoms: Nothing really!  My galbladder has been hurting a little after I eat, and I am hungry all of the time, but just for a few bites of food, never really a full meal.  I consider myself very fortunate that I haven't been sick at all!

What I Miss: Coffee, Wine, Diet Cokes...and a cold beer during College Football Saturdays!

Cravings: I love peanut butter and honey sandwiches and Cheetos (yes, together).  Although this week I have really wanted raw veggies and salads.  I'm not much into meat lately, which is really weird for me.
