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*

    Loved my second trimesters. That first baby flutter is so beautiful.

    I had a midwife too, loved it. I did a home birth, it was awesome.

    My second trimesters were the best when I was pregnant with each of my boys. Enjoy it!

    You're craving cherry tomatoes?! What a healthy craving! LOL

    I hope your next appointment with your midwife goes well – it must be so exciting.

    My pregnancies were rough with morning sickness. It never really ended for me. I always wished for a home birth.

    Glad to hear your sickness seems to be at bay and things are moving along well.

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

    This post makes me miss pregnancy! The second trimester was my fave and it was incredible. I'm jealous of the home birth. If I ever do it again I want one for sure!

    Sweat pants really are comfy. 🙂 Sounds like things are moving right along, and a big hurrah for it!

    This week I've made it week 25+ 4 days. I feel huge, This kid is a ninja, and it's my second little boy:) I miss margaritas I've wanted one so bad for the last 20 weeks

    My poor sisters had morning sickness so bad. It's so great you are over that.

  13. January 3, 2015 / 4:32 am

    I am always intrigued by home births,,,,although I have 10 siblings and we were all born at home except the last one. Good luck with your pregnancy

  14. January 3, 2015 / 5:41 am

    Great things are coming for 2015! How exciting for you. Glad that you are feeling better and the nausea and vomiting has pretty much passed and you no longer need meds for that.

  15. January 3, 2015 / 6:15 am

    I am craving cherry tomatoes too, and I'm not even pregnant 🙂 Hope this trimester goes smoothly for you!

    I love your pregnancy updates. Pregnancy is such a cool thing despite the MS and I really enjoy when people share their journey's with us. Thank you!

  17. January 3, 2015 / 11:35 pm

    All sounds great! I always felt so much better when I went into my 2nd trimester. We have 5 too!

  18. January 4, 2015 / 2:52 am

    How exciting for you and your family! I don't remember ever wanting cherry tomatoes when I was pregnant with my son lol

    I had terrible morning sickness with my second pregnancy. I hope you start to feel better over that soon.

  20. January 4, 2015 / 2:32 pm

    I am sad to hear you have been sick with the flu. It's good that you are getting rested up and doing well with your pregnancy.

  21. January 5, 2015 / 5:48 am

    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.

    I had a midwife with one of my pregnancies, but all were in the hospital. Super excited for you girl!
