14 weeks!

I decided to start doing these updates.  Some of the other bloggers do them and I love to read them.  So, here goes the first one!

Total Weight Loss/Gain:  I've gained about 4 lb since the transfer.  I gained 1 lb since my last OB appt about a month ago.  Still not obviously showing.

Maternity Clothes:  I still fit into about half my non-maternity pants (the larger / stretchier ones) and pretty much all my regular shirts.  I can wear my jeans with a bella band.  I have bought three pairs of maternity work pants and one pair of maternity jeans (which I wore once or twice and don't like - they are these ones and they feel like they're falling down).  I'm going to buy a full-panel pair from the Gap.  I also bought this dress, which I love and can't wait to wear.  I'll probably start wearing the maternity stuff more in the coming weeks. 

Stretch marks:  None visible so far! 

Sleep:  Sleeping OK.  Getting up twice a night to pee, but usually able to get right back to sleep.

Movement:  Thought I felt a little something the other day, but it's still early.

Cravings/Aversions:  No real aversions but a lot of cravings.  Eating a lot of apples and oranges.  I've also had a craving for candy - the really bad, corn syrupy kind.  I've only given in a few times, I know that's really bad for me and the baby.  I would eat Indian food every day if I could.

Gender:  Possibly a boy, won't know for sure until the end of February at the anatomy scan

Symptoms:  Boobs are still big and sore, starting to get heartburn every day!

What I miss: Drinking alcohol!! 

What I look forward to:  A bigger belly and feeling the baby move

Moods:  So, so.  I can get cranky at work.

Milestones: None this week (but I had an OB checkup and heard the heartbeat today!)

Medical concerns:  None

Misc:  We were supposed to move houses in the coming week, but the closing has been postponed for one month because the new house needs to be re-stucco'ed.  Better for us, as we just put our place on the market and are hoping it will sell very soon.  We've worked our butts off getting the house presentable (not easy with 3 cats).  We'll have a lot of changes in the coming months!


  1. Love it! So glad you are doing well. :-)

  2. You are in the 2T! Congratulations :) I hate that my maternity pants always fall down!

  3. I can't wait to do this! I think I will do posts like this when I get pregnant! So glad to hear it is going well!!:)
