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....
