14 weeks tomorrow!

How far along: 14 weeks!

Size of baby: Baby is the size of a lemon which seems weird to me because I think a peach is bigger than a lemon but what do I know? Baby is 3.5 inches long and weighs 1.5 oz.  According to baby is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine, and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys, and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over her body for warmth.

Total weight gain/loss: I think I've gained another pound since last week.  I'm beginning to dislike this question and here's why- all the other bloggers I'm following who are due the same time as me have only gained a couple of pounds- is something wrong with me??

Maternity clothes: I am wearing maternity pants and regular shirts when I leave the house but I wish I could live in sweat pants. As soon as I get home changing into sweats is the first thing I do.

Sleep: Terrible this week with the strep throat/sinus infection/coughing.

Best moment of the week: Being 14 weeks pregnant!! Oh, and we ordered a children's book that I used to read over and over at my grandma's house when I was little- I found it at a vintage book store online and I can't wait to get it! It's called Little Lulu Lucky Landlady.

Movement: Not yet

Symptoms: I don't really have any symptoms this week which makes me nervous but I think this cold is masking a lot of things.

Food cravings/aversions: Nothing has sounded good this week except carbs.

Gender: Don't know yet but I'm excited to find out!

Belly button in or out: Still in

Stretch marks: Nothing new, same ones I've had

What I miss: I haven't really been missing anything this week, I am just happy to be pregnant :)

What I am looking forward to: Feeling the baby move and finding out what we're having!

Weekly wisdom: Rest when you need to rest.

**I wanted to say a quick thanks to Baby Hopes for the Versatile Blogger award- I promise I will get to handing it back out as soon as my brain is functioning properly! I appreciate it very much!


  1. Yay, 14 weeks!!!!
    Carbs and grease is all I want too!!
    In terms of weight gain, I haven't gained that much but I literally get sick at least once a day, so I think (if) I ever get over that, the weight will come like crazy!
    My book says at 17 weeks you should have gained 5-10 pounds, so I bet you are right on course!

  2. I am gaining weight alreay...I just don't blog about it! I am probably up about 7lbs so far...

    I hope your cold goes away soon!!!

  3. I am following from over at

    I am 20 weeks pregnant and you are braver then me keeping track of your weight. I just ignore it and then bust my butt after the baby is here to lose weight. It worked for my first one.

  4. I totally agree about the peach and the lemon! My what to expect book says this week baby is the size of your fist...sounds better to me :)

    About the weight.....I decided that I am not going to weigh on my scale at home because I don't trust it and it stresses me out. I have totally gotten my appetite back this week so I am sure my next dr. appt I will have gained plenty!!!

    Isn't is crazy to think our babies are growing hair right now???

  5. Love these posts!!! So very precious!!! :)

  6. Yay! 14 weeks! I am SO thrilled for you. Glad that things are progressing well and I am sorry to hear about the strep...
    Your blog is such an inspiration for me!

  7. I always get a chuckle when people word it "to find out what we're having". I always think "you're having a baby, not a seahorse" or something along those lines.

  8. congrats and hope you are feeling better soon!

  9. Congratulations!! I love making it to a new week and then reading up on what fruit/legume the being inside me is most similar to. What a great milestone for you and your husband!

  10. It's great that everything is going as planned, and that you have no symptoms whatsoever. Enjoy it!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
