14 week update, and photos!

Posted in Pregnancy tagged , at 9:45 am by lifebytheday

As of Wednesday, I am 14 weeks pregnant, and officially out of the first trimester…and it feels FANTASTIC.  After outing myself on FB earlier in the week, I told my boss and have given my mother the all clear to tell her friends.  Which means that the rest of the town will know by this weekend!  It’s fun to be able to talk about it openly…especially now that I’m very definitely showing. 

Last night S and I were decorating the tree and several times he just stopped and looked at me and gave me a sweet little smile.  I think it’s getting more real for him now that it’s obvious that there’s something growing in there.  I can’t wait until we’re (both!) able to feel the baby move…

So now, on to the update!

How am I feeling?  Really pretty good.  I haven’t had a headache in almost a week, which is such a nice treat…but now I have a killer cold.  My neti pot and I are become good friends again…

Weight gain?  -3 (up another two pounds), although keep in mind, I weigh myself first thing in the morning, before I’ve had anything to eat, lol!  I think the OB’s numbers are going to be slightly different. 😉

Cravings?  Not much, seriously.  I need to figure out what’s going to tempt me and readjust…I’ve been eating pretty crappy lately.  I just went through my cookbook and found some new recipes to try…hopefully I’ll be feeling well enough to do some cooking this weekend.

Aversions?  Same…any meat that needs to be cut/chewed, and vegetables. 

Milestones?  The second trimester!  And getting my hair highlighted!!

And now…some photos!  (Ignore the crappy quality, we have two cameras but one is missing and another is broken…we definitely need to do something about that SOON!)

8 weeks


10 weeks


12 weeks (and post-Thanksgiving dinner)


14 weeks

I really wanted to have the photos as a record, but I just wish they didn’t always have to be taken at the end of the day (when I’m definitely not at my best).  Hopefully I’ll have some prettier photos to share soon. 😉
