Time is flying! I’m currently 14 weeks pregnant, which not only means that I’m in the second trimester (yay!), but also that it’s time for another bumpdate!
For the first few weeks of my pregnancy, time seemed to drag. Maybe it was not being able to say anything, or waiting to get through the “iffy” phase, but man, that first trimester took forever! But starting at about the 10 week mark, time just started flying by! I feel like I blink and another two weeks has passed. It’s crazy.
Anyway, it’s bumpdate time!
How far along: 14 weeks
How big is baby?: Lemon
Weight gain: Still pretty minimal – 1-2 pounds, although I feel like it’s all going to my face.
Symptoms: Melsasma, which is the official term for the “mask of pregnancy”‘ or splotchy brown patches on the face. Yay for me! Nothing my fave BB Cream doesn’t cover up, thankfully. Also, I’m still waiting for that whole 2nd trimester burst of energy! I’m exhausted!
Sleeping: Much better. My insomnia is much less frequent and lately I’ve been sleeping like a baby (no pun intended).
Food cravings: If you follow me on Twitter, you already know this, but ice cream! And still s’mores. Mmmmm melty marshmallow and chocolate.
Food aversions: Still almonds. I am so grossed out by them.
Miss anything?: Grilled hot dogs. Although I guess I can eat them in moderation. I’m just nervous because of the nitrates. And still, craft beer (shocking, I know).
Gender: 4 more weeks until we find out! Can’t wait.
Wedding Rings on or off?: On.
Maternity Clothes?: I’m still wearing all of my non-maternity clothes. But I do have a couple of maternity dresses on standby, and I think I’m going to buy a pair of maternity leggings and maternity jeans pretty soon.
Movement: My ultrasound tech mentioned that I have “quite the energetic baby.” Oh lordy. Baby is moving around like crazy! But I can’t feel anything yet.
What I did/got for baby: Nothing lately. I think the flood gates are going to open when we find out the gender.
What I’m looking forward to: Finding out the gender! Then shopping.
Best moment of the week: I have two. The first was seeing Baby moving and kicking around on my most recent ultrasound. It is the BEST feeling to see Baby and the progress in his/her development is amazing. I even got a wave! (Hi mom!). The second was my husband calling me from a business trip in New York to tell me he “just became ‘that Dad.'” Meaning, the guy who is constantly showing people photos of his kid. I had emailed him the ultrasound photos because he couldn’t be there, and he found himself showing them to anyone who would look. So cute.
