14 Weeks Pregnant!

Baby Growth: The baby is averaging in at a whopping 3.5 inches!  Roughly, he/she is the size of my clenched fist.  Baby also weighs about 1.5 ounces right now.  The baby can now suck his/her thumb and move all around my belly!  Baby is also starting to get a thin covering of hair all over his/her body.

My Symptoms: Well, I thought that I had moved on from morning sickness, but I threw up again Friday morning.  We were getting ready to leave for Atlanta and it just hit me all of a sudden and I had to make a run for the bathroom.  I felt pretty terrible the rest of the day.  And, randomly, for the next few days I had a VERY upset stomach when it came to using the bathroom.  I don't know where that came from, either.  I'm finally starting to get over the sinus junk that I was dealing with and I've (for the most part) stopped coughing.  I am starting to get some of my energy back, but not by tons.  Just little by little.  My lower stomach was also pretty tender yesterday and I just overall felt like poop.  I'm pretty sure it was just round ligament pain, but it was not too fun.

Weight:  Well, I gained one pound back, so now I'm at a -2 pounds.  Not too upset about that!  I'm thinking that this will for sure start picking up now that I'm not so nauseated as much now.

Belly Pictures:  I didn't get dressed today until Matt had already left for work, so my pics aren't gonna be so great today.  Today is also just a stay home/cleaning day today for me, so I did not get dressed up cute.  

Gender: Still mostly feeling that this is a girl, but I did have a few moments this week where I thought it could maybe be a boy.  I guess I'm just as confused as ever!

Maternity Clothes: Nope!  I did buy a few tank tops that were on sale this weekend because I KNOW that I'll be living in them when it gets warm.  They weren't maternity, but I don't mind if they get all stretched out because they were mega cheap.

Movement: Not a ton, but definitely some bumps here and there!

Sleep: I have NOT been sleeping good lately.  I've been very restless all night.  Waking up for weird things.  Not being able to go back to sleep very quickly.  Basically, it's no fun.  I have had the urge to sleep on my stomach a few times, and when I did, it was still pretty comfortable.  I've also been having issues with waking up to either my hands or legs being asleep??  Random.

What I Miss:  Not a whole lot.  I have been feeling not great, so feeling better would definitely be a plus.  I miss not being so picky about food.  Stuff sounds either REALLY good or REALLY gross.  And that can be REALLY frustrating.

What I'm Looking Forward To: I'm pretty content right now, so not much.  I do have a doctor's appointment next week, and we're going to take LL so that she can hear the heartbeat.  I'm pretty pumped.  We should also schedule our ultrasound at that appointment.

Cravings: Orange juice.  I'll probably get some when I go to the grocery store this week, but I need to remind myself to drink it in heavy moderation because it gives me super bad heartburn.

My Concerns or Questions: Why am I waking up to numb/asleep body parts?  This this okay/normal??

My Goal for the Week: Enjoy my last few days home with my girl and REST!
