14 Weeks

How far along? 14 weeks 1 day
Size: Lemon
Maternity clothes? A couple of new dresses for a wedding in May. Nothing new for day to day wear though - still wearing belly bands over my jeans which is working fine.
I am starting to feel (what I think is) round ligament pain. At this point the baby is making his way upward, so I think it's the pulling and stretching I am feeling. 
Sleep: Good, thanks to my Snoogle. I caught Robert watching TV with it the other day, hah!
Lying on my back for extended periods of time can get uncomfortable so I am happy to have that huge pillow.
Best moment this week:
I got my energy back and can stay up past 10pm. Also, I have been cleaning up around the house which I am loving. I feel a purge coming on
- like, this weekend (I'd happily skip any super bowl party...). Can't wait to throw stuff away and organize everything. 
Worst moment of the week: The work week dragged on forever.
Have you told family and friends: Yes!

Miss anything? Nope.

Movement: I can't feel anything yet.

Food cravings: Thursday night I was craving sushi (I don't eat raw fish anyway, so I can still go out to sushi and eat normally). We don't have a cheap and good sushi place across the street like we did in SF, so our sushi consumption has been non-existent these days.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing in particular, but I did have a couple days of nausea earlier on in the week. Not sure what that was about.

Have you started to show yet: On Tuesday I seemed to have popped. I was sitting at my desk all day at work staring down and rubbing this foreign bump. It really does fluctuate though because yesterday I felt smaller than I've felt all week. Weird.

My Gender prediction: I don't think my prediction will change at this point: boy. In fact, I am so confident, I surprised Robert at work with a coffee from our unborn son. Creepy? Probably.
Labor signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy

Looking forward to: Our doctor appointment on Monday - I have a million questions for the doctor.

14 weeks: Your baby, now as long as a lemon, weighs about 1 1/2 ounces. (Length: 3 1/2 inches, head to bottom.) @babycenter #howbigisyourbaby #pregnancy
Baby A, size of a lemon
What's the baby up to?
Your baby now is peeing into the amniotic fluid round itself (hmm) as well as making breathing movements (aw). With the effect of hormones, the boys now have a prostate gland. For girls, the ovaries move from the abdomen into the pelvis. During this week of pregnancy the cheekbones are visible and the head and eyebrow hair develops (eyebrows!).


  1. It was a fun get together for Dad/Jim/OPA and me to see Kaila, Adam, Anna, Robert, and baby lemon :)
