14 Week Survey

How Far Along: 14 Weeks

*Your adorable little fetus 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. - Information from www.thebump.com

Size of Baby: Lemon (3.4in. 1.5oz)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 7lbs total so far. (I think this is because I was not sick at all so I ate what I was craving. Sometimes seriously my cravings were so bad NOTHING else could satisfy!)

Maternity Clothes: yes! I have been in them for a few weeks now. There are a few pieces of my everyday clothing that I can still wear but not a lot.

Gender: We don't know yet. We will not find out until the baby is born. Eeek! I think this will be fun but hard to wait!!

Movement: Believe it or not but I think I felt the baby move earlier this week when I woke up. I felt a flutter in my tummy like a muscle spasm almost. It was really wierd and I felt it twice. I have not felt it again though. So we will see!

What I Miss:
Being able to lift things over 20-25lbs. I didn't realize how often I did this until I got pregnant. I also didn't realize it would be a big deal to me but sometimes I just feel so helpless not being able to lift things.

Sleep: Most every night I sleep through the night and then have to pee REALLY bad when I wake up in the morning. It take a LOT to wake me up from a good sleep. haha!

Cravings: Meat and potatoes-this could be baked potatoes, french fries, potatoe chips etc. (Derek loves this)

*At one point I told Derek I had to have potatoe chips, we went to the store and I bought Pringles and Lays Salt and Vinegar I got home and laid down and ate chips and it was SO good! :)

Best Moment This Week: If it was my baby moving, that was by far the best. I guess I will know whenever I feel it again.

What We Are Looking Forward To: I think I at least am most looking forward to when our baby can hear us. That is so cool and we can talk to Baby and he or she can hear us! And feeling the baby move regularly! I have wanted that to happen, well, about since I got pregnant. :)

Praise God for a healthy pregnancy and that lemon sized growing baby in your tummy! Didn't know you planned to wait to find out girl/boy. Will you still have ultrasounds?

I didn't wait to find out with any of mine, however, with Martin we were told he was a girl! :) Oh.so.wrong.

How nice that you weren't sick! I was terribly sick with all of mine - not fun!
I can't believe you may have already felt baby move. That is practically unheard of this early on for a first baby! It could be that you are just more in tune with your body! YAY!

Oh - and lifting no more than 20-25 pounds ... you can only not do that with your first pregnancy! With subsequent pregnancies you won't be able to help but pick up your 25 pound toddler!
Praise God that you are doing so well!
