Pregnancy Update: Week 14 (Baby #5)

Happy New Year, everyone! Here I am in the second trimester. Things are finally starting to move along. Perhaps we'll talk with my midwife about scheduling an ultrasound soon. Here's my update for 14 weeks!

Due date: June 30th

How far along:  14 weeks, 2 days

Next appointment: January 10th

Gender:  Unknown

Total weight gain/loss:  Pretty sure I haven't gained any yet since the morning sickness is just letting up.

Stretch marks: Only what already exists ;)

Swelling: None

Maternity clothes: Out for the comfort of them, but I live in sweatpants anyway. ;) 

Belly button: Too early for that

Sleep: I've been sleeping a ton this week since I've been down with the flu.

Food cravings:  Cherry tomatoes

Symptoms:  Nothing new other than I think I'm starting to show a bit.

Movement: I was just thinking today that I've felt a couple of twinges here and there. A fifth time mom knows. ;)

Labor signs: Too early for that.

What I miss: Being able to reach things up high. My husband has banned me from that. Lol. 

What I'm loving:  Being in the second trimester. The pregnancy feels "real" now.

What I'm looking forward to: My next prenatal appointment is coming up soon. I always enjoy going to see my midwife.

Best moment this week: I don't have to take Unisom every day to keep the sickness at bay. I think it's gone officially! *knock on wood*

  8. Cherry tomatoes sounds like something I would have craved! I was all about pasta with fresh, chunky tomato sauces.

  23. The second trimester is so fun. You feel the baby move, the nausea is gone and you are not to big that it is uncomfortable to move around.
