14 Weeks

Wow, 14 weeks already! I'm happy to be in my second trimester and feeling really good. I'm really not showing yet, I get multiple comments a day at work that I have no bump. It really depends on what I'm wearing, in my work dress clothes I can hide my bump pretty well. I'm looking forward to a big round belly and feeling the baby move more. 

I received my combined screen results back which were great. Down syndrome came back 1 in 10K and trisomy 13 also came back 1 in 10K. 

How far along: 14 weeks!!

Size of baby: Lemon

Total weight gain: 5 pounds


Movement: I swear I've felt the baby move a few different times. 

Sleep: Sleep is great, I'm able to stay up a little later, I'm talking until 9:30 or 10 (old lady here). Earlier in my pregnancy I was fast asleep by 8ish or as early as possible. 

What I miss: I don't miss much, I'm not really craving alcoholic beverages at all. I do miss drinking coffee by the pots. :)

Cravings: Cookies, oatmeal scotchies to me exact. They were sold out in the 2 stores I checked which is probably a good thing for my waist line. 

Labor Signs: N/A

Maternity clothes: Nothing new the last two weeks, but rocking mostly all maternity pants. 

Best moments this week: I had the BEST weekend with my sweet little Audrina. The weather has been beautiful in Seattle and we've been trying to soak it all up. On Sunday we went to a trampoline place and Audrina met the cutest little friend. They held hands the entire time and it was so sad when the little girl had to go home. Also, Audrina napped in my arms twice over the weekend and I loved every minute of it. I'm not sure how many more times, if any, she will do this so I tried to savor every minute. 



14 Weeks with Audrina, sigh I was much smaller back then. :)

12 Weeks

I think it's safe to say that most of my morning/all day sickness has passed YAY! I thought I would never get past it (dramatic I know). I'm still more tired than usual most days, especially the last few hours of the evening but overall I'm feeling good.

How far along: 12 weeks!!

Size of baby: Lime 

Total weight gain: I finally weighed myself, I don't really know my exact starting weight but I think I've gained 3-4 pounds. 

Movement: No movement yet.

Sleep: Besides my 3-4 trips to the bathroom every night, sleep is going well. We decided to stop forcing Audrina to nap and now offer quiet time instead. Now she goes to bed without a struggle most nights. I miss her naps and that free hour or so but I think she is one of those kiddos that just doesn't need it.

What I miss: Venti coffees!! Now that I'm feeling better, I'm starting to crave my giant coffees again. I had a bad addiction to Venti Americanos before I found out I was pregnant. Now I will treat myself to a tall one shot Americano one or two days a week...maybe three. 

Cravings: Salads from Panera like it's my job! Also lime Greek yogurt with graham crackers and white chocolate chips...OMG!

Labor Signs: N/A

Maternity clothes: Waiting on my newest order from Gap. I also have a shortage of tops that are flattering. I'm still in the awkward bump stage where I don't really look pregnant unless I'm wearing a tight shirt which isn't comfortable. 

Best moments this week: Yesterday I had my NT/Triple Screen and Derek and I got to see out little baby!! Everything looks good so far. I'm a little disappointed that the tech didn't get a great ultrasound pic but that's ok, I'm just happy we got to see the baby. The tech wouldn't guess the sex either, boo! :)
