14 Weeks

How far along? 14 Weeks!

Baby's size? Baby Summers is the size of a lemon! About 3 1/2 inches and 1 1/2 ounces.

Weight Gain? Didn't weigh myself this week but I don't think I've gained any.

Maternity clothes? Went out with my wonderful mother and she bought me some pants and quite a few cute maternity tops :) I know I can still get away with some of my regular tops but the pants are just ridiculous, even with the band they are too uncomfortable to wear.

Stretch marks? No.

Belly button in or out? In, but I think it's opening more... does that make sense?

Sleep? Sleep is always great, I don't think I stay up past 9:30 usually 10 has been the latest I've been up the last few weeks. I get up about 6:30 every morning though.

Foods I am loving? Not too much, I have been able to eat more this week than I did last week.

Foods I am hating? Anything that is heavy or has too much of a smell.

Best moment this week? Seeing my belly pop. I finally have a little belly, I swear it came out of no where, it wasn't there Sunday when we went to church but then Monday morning I woke up and nothing felt like it fit quite right anymore and sure enough I've definitely popped, sometimes I feel maybe it's too much?

Movement? Can't feel anything yet, though I'm so excited to!

Symptoms? Nausea, stuffy nose, growing pains. Dry skin and nose bleeds too!

Gender? I think its really 50/50 in my heart, but everyone besides my dad thinks girl. Either way, I have an appointment on the 27th, and they said they next two would be really long big ones, so I'm sure there will be an ultrasound, (16w 2d) and we should get a sneak peek!

What I miss? I absolutely love being pregnant! Though I do wish being able to get up and do more things.

What I'm looking forward to? Finding out gender and feeling movement!

Weekly Wisdom: Eat things slowly... and enjoy a nice bowl of ice cream while watching a movie right before bed :)

Milestones: Being in my 2nd trimester! Making it a few days without throwing up was AMAZING!

Emotions: This week was a much better week than last week. I'm able to enjoy and slightly feel better about people knowing we're pregnant. I absolutely HATED people knowing or finding out but now I feel like everything will be okay, though I do get nervous before every appointment and my appointment is still 2 weeks out but I'm nervous. I think that the popping out of my tummy is helping me see that everything is going how it should be, (which is how Skyler feels too).

This week's big developments: Your baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb! Thanks to brain impulses, his facial muscles are getting a workout as his tiny features form one expression after another. His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him — a process he'll keep up until birth. He can grasp, too, and if you're having an ultrasound now, you may even catch him sucking his thumb.

In other news: Your baby's stretching out. From head to bottom, he measures 3 1/2 inches — about the size of a lemon — and he weighs 1 1/2 ounces. His body's growing faster than his head, which now sits upon a more distinct neck. By the end of this week, his arms will have grown to a length that's in proportion to the rest of his body. (His legs still have some lengthening to do.) He's starting to develop an ultra-fine, downy covering of hair, called lanugo, all over his body. Your baby's liver starts making bile this week — a sign that it's doing its job right — and his spleen starts helping in the production of red blood cells. Though you can't feel his tiny punches and kicks yet, your little pugilist's hands and feet (which now measure about 1/2 inch long) are more flexible and active.
