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.

13 weeks update!

How far along? 13... Finally the 2nd Trimester!

Baby's size? Baby Summers is the size of a peach! About 3 inches!

Weight Gain? Nothing still, though I haven't lost anymore, I count that as a plus! (Also I only check my weight when I have my appointments)

Maternity clothes? Nope, though I may go find some pants or so cute (not lazy) looking stretchy pants, my stomach is so dang sensitive, its usually even hard to put the belly band on it.

Stretch marks? No.

Sleep? I sleep so much! I usually get around 11 hours a night, and still wanna nap during the day!

Foods I am loving? Absolutely nothing, this week has sucked. My doctor said that at 12 weeks you start to feel better, I guess my body doesn't quite agree.

Foods I am hating? Everything!

Best moment this week? Got to hear Baby Summers' heart beat, it was very clear and was 165 bpm!

Movement? Can't feel anything yet, but I can't wait!

Symptoms? Nauseous all the time and throwing up more than I have in prior weeks. Quite a few pains in the abdomen, but I read that its normal and they aren't cramp like at all, just growing pains!

Gender? I have no idea. We always thought a girl would come first, and I was afraid I'd be upset if it was a boy, so after much thought and self talking, now I'm thinking it could be either. Can't wait to find out! My next appointment is at 16W 2D, so hopefully we might be able to get a sneak peek?

What I miss? Eating food like I was at the beginning of this pregnancy, but I absolutely love being pregnant!

What I'm looking forward to? Movement and finding out the gender!

Weekly Wisdom: Just because your stomach wants it then, doesn't mean it won't regret it's choice a few minutes later.

Milestones: Being in the 2nd trimester!!

Emotions: This was a really hard week, Skyler told his siblings and my dad of course slipped it out to a few more people, and that has me torn, but I'm excited about that. I just wish this nausea would get better.

Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce.

It seems like I've been missing here for quite a while. I feel awful not having done the weekly updates. I know that now that we've made it past the 12 week mark that I should be getting better at updating, I say that because its usually around now that you can start to tell more each week. It's exciting! I had my twelve week 2 day appointment on Monday. Got to hear Baby Summer's heartbeat again, (162 bpm), this time Skyler got to be with me. It was wonderful, I heard it at my 10 week appointment and it was quiet and you had to listen carefully for it (the Dr. was surprised we could even hear it then) but it was there and then this time it was loud and you knew right away what it was!

After my appointment I let Skyler tell his siblings. (Gag!) I do mean "gag!" in the nicest way I can think of right now. I have tried and tried again to be friends with his older sister and to talk to his younger sister, but I never get responses. If I hear back from A (his older sister) the answers are short and exactly what you would expect from someone who didn't want to talk to you. I have given up. I've tried every way of trying to get together with her and its pathetic, I'm still pissed by what she's said before about "just because I can get pregnant easy doesn't mean I don't have other problems" oh thats right people that can't get pregnant easy only have the one problem.... and "I just don't think we can be close because I'm pregnant and you're not... its not like we can't be friends, I just don't think it'll work"... oh I see you think I'm going to steal your child right? Or that I'm going to be absolutely awful... well I've been trying to see you to be nice to you, no I don't feel bad for you about anything, you've put yourself in those situations but I'll still smile and say okay.

Anyway that went way off track but, on Sunday we went and saw Skyler's brothers baby, who was born on Saturday, it was definitely not my cup of tea but Skyler had fun. I'll have to do a post next on my feelings about everything, personally what I want to do. So that got Skyler wanting to tell everyone right then. Well I'm scared, still am and will be for a while, I don't want to tell people but its only right especially after what my dad did Sunday night, that story will come next. So I let Skyler text his family, only his phone wouldn't send to his two sisters, guess who had to text them... thats right I did. One just said "Wow that awesome congratulations :)" perfect, quick and painless... A of course needed to know every freakin' detail of everything now I didn't want to text her and she should know were not friends, or maybe now that I'm pregnant we are.... hmmm gotta ask about that one. I was short with every answer just like her and it felt amazing. I do feel like I should keep trying to see her, for my husband. He wants his family to be close with me and I know thats how it should be its just when you keep trying and get not the best responses it's hard.

Now onto my dad. My mom likes to say its a girl, my dad thinks its funny to call the baby Skyler Brent (After my husband and my dad) so while at Sunday dinner my dad was talking to my cousins and told them how my brother bought a puppy for his girlfriend and my cousin Brent said "did they name it brent?!" and my dad quickly and repeatedly said, "Nope, Sara is having Skyler Brent." Well that's how it happened, it came out to 3 more people, who knows who else heard after we left... I just couldn't cover that one up.

Then last night I went out with my MIL, she has NEVER wanted to do anything with me in the last 3 years. I knew there was something up, well she talked a ton was nice then at dinner asked "When are you going to tell everyone else?" I said we already did and I think that was the last thing she said the whole night without me repeatedly asking her questions. I have nothing against her but you could tell thats what she wanted to talk about. Its my baby I can tell people when I want, honestly I'd wait till he or she was born if I could before telling anyone.

Well I hope everyone is doing well!

Its been quite a while since I've been able to post, and even now I'm posting from my phone (pathetic).I started feeling pretty sick after my last post.Then we had the 24th of July party and things started going way down from there, Sunday I was in bed ALL day, in and out of conciousness, my husband headed off to church to teach our class, well when he got home 2 hours later I still was in bed. I seriously felt so weak. I didn't leave my room at all, then that night I hurt everywhere and couldn't get warm so my wonderful husband put some partially warm water in the tub, and I climbed in for maybe 3 minutes decided to get out.I'd been having my husband help me around I couldn't eat so I was very weak, well after getting help out of the tub my body decided it didn't want up anymore, I blacked out. I came to with Skyler shaking me wanting to call 911. But I felt a little better and climbed into bed, only to get up and throw up non-stop. After a horrific night and morning, Skyler drug me to a drs appointment where I met my 2 new best friends! Dr. M & Zofran! I was finally able to drink water and get a few bites of food in. Dr. M had me go in the next monday, and we had our first OB check up at 7 weeks 4 days and found out our little one is at 8 weeks 2 days, our due date was moved up 5 days! I was so excited to know we were a week a head, made it that much further, and seeing our baby was amazing! Dr. M said that with such an early ultra sound looking so good our chance of miscarriage was less than 1%!! Yay!! Even better news!! My next appointment is next monday! My 2 year anniversary! We'll be 10 weeks tomorrow! Yay! Double digits finally! Can't wait. And even better the last few days I've felt great! The last week or 2 even with the zofran I still feel like death, but not the last 2 days! I can't wait to get to the 12 week mark! We'll be telling a few more people on Labor day, its getting pretty exciting! I do wish I'd gain weight I keep losing it. :/ but I still eat so I know I'm doing what I can. I'll post more later hopefully!
