14 Weeks

I know I completely skipped Week 13, but I've been so busy.  Right in the middle of competition, and doing a production of the Vagina Monologues (which was so much fun!).  But now I'm through with VM, so I can actually post!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along:  14 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a lemon.
Total Weight Gain/Loss:  Probably about 5 pounds.
Maternity Clothes: I bought two pairs of maternity jeans, and the stretchy panel is REALLY comfy, but I'm having a problem keeping them up above my butt!  I know it's big, but I haven't really worn them more than once; I'm hoping this gets better as I get bigger.
Gender: I'm really thinking this is a boy.  According to the Ramzi Method, and the Shettles Method, it's definitely a boy! 
Movement: None, but I'm really looking forward to it soon!
Sleep:  I've still been sleeping okay, but every night I can't stay out of the BATHROOM!!!  I pee about every 10 minutes until I fall asleep.

What I miss: Not a thing. 
Cravings:  Still not a lot.  This week I ate salt and vinegar potato chips every morning at ten....
Symptoms: Heartburn!  Almost every morning.  It's not terrible, but it's annoying.
Best Moment this week:  I'm going to highlight the best moments for the past two weeks.  Our appt on Feb 15 was great; we heard the heartbeat immediately, and then started telling EVERYONE.  We announced it on Facebook that afternoon, and both had an amazing outpouring of kind words.  My students are already wanting to touch my belly, which I'm totally fine with (I don't know WHY this bothers some people!  It's not like it's a big deal!)  I'm also slowly getting bigger, even thought my belly hasn't "popped" yet....

12 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along:  12 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a large plum.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have no idea, I've not been on a scale in weeks.  My guess is about 2 pounds or so.
Maternity Clothes: Still none yet, but things are a teeny bit tighter, and sweatpants feel so much better than jeans.
Gender: Still no idea.
Movement: None.
Sleep:  I've been sleeping really well.  Thursday night I cam down with a voracious stomach bug, and the next morning, got a call-in prescription for Phenegrin.  That stuff works, but it makes you SLEEPY!  I'm still feeling yucky today, but not as bad as yesterday!

What I miss: Nothing really.
Cravings:  Not really anything so far, except for sweets, off and on, but it gives me heartburn, so I'm trying to lay off that stuff.
Symptoms: Hardly any, but this is the start of the second trimester, so it's to be expected.
Best Moment this week: Making it to the second trimester!  Can't wait for my appointment on Tuesday!

11 Weeks!

11 Week Bump Shot:
Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along:  11 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a lime.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Probably about two pounds.
Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but I do feel some of my tighter jeans getting a little too tight, though!  Gender: We don't know yet, but I'm thinking girl right now.  I'm craving sweets, and that's supposed to be a sign of a girl, but who knows?
Movement: None.
Sleep:  We had a full week of school last week, with a delay on Friday, so it was pretty tiring.  I'm sleeping heavily at night, but as soon as I lie down, I have to pee!
What I miss: Nothing really. 
Cravings:  None, but I need to get back to eating a little more healthy.  I ate out a LOT this week, just because I didn't feel like cooking, or fixing a lunch..
Symptoms: Hardly any.  Boobs slowly got a lot less sore; and I've only been a teeny bit nauseous a couple of times.
Best Moment this week: Nothing really, except I am looking forward to my appointment next week, on the 15th!  I'll be twelve weeks, and out of the first trimester!
