I really should have posted this Friday, but to be honest I fell asleep. I do that a lot lately 🙂 I still can’t believe that I’m pregnant. It’s an absolutely amazing feeling knowing that I created something so beautiful with someone I love so very much. Chris and I cannot wait to meet our little one!
We’ve been getting lots of questions by family and friends. Here are just a few!Are you going to find out baby’s gender? Yes! We are so thrilled and cannot wait to see what our baby is going to be! It’s still a surprise because I haven’t a clue if it’s a boy or girl. We just can’t wait until July to find out so we’ll be finding out as soon as the doctor says so! 😉
Do you have names picked out? Not yet, we’re waiting to find out if it’s a boy or girl before we try and pick.
Did you guys want to get pregnant? Yes, this is 100% expected. Although many doctors said it can take 6 months to a year. Our sweet baby was conceived right away. We’re truly blessed.
What are you hoping for? Of course everyone wants a specific gender. Naturally women tend to want girls and the husband’s want boys. I honestly am so blessed that I have this chance to be a mommy and I want exactly what this little one is.
I also thought it would be fun to do a little Q&A on how my pregnancy is progressing. I will try to do this each week so I can share these memories with baby one day!
About our baby: Baby is stretching out. From head to bottom, he or she measures 3 1/2 inches, about the size of a lemon and weighs 1 1/2 ounces.
About me: I definitely feel bloated, hoping this goes away soon. Trying to avoid salt.
How far along? 14 Weeks 2 Days
Total weight gain: I haven’t gained any weight yet, but haven’t lost anymore since losing 5lbs.
Maternity clothes? Not yet, very thankful for yoga pants!
Stretch marks? None yet, I know they’ll be coming!
Sleep: Sleeping is okay, getting up is the hard part.
Best moment this week: The fact that I can withstand some protein now.
Worst moment this week: When I made tacos and couldn’t bare eating them. I ended up eating a hoagie roll loaded with vegetables and mozzarella.
Miss Anything? Brie and crackers. Oh and a turkey sandwich with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado. Not the same when the meat is heated.
Movement: We have a little more time to wait until we feel baby.
Food cravings: Watermelon and Grapefruit!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Chicken almost any way you cook it. Especially ground chicken.
Gender: We’re finding out in March! 🙂
Labor Signs: No.
Symptoms: Slightly nauseated still as well as tired all the time!
Belly Button in or out? Same, in.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Thankfully I’m pretty happy, I only get upset during movies. I have never cried so easily during a movie.
Looking forward to: Next prenatal appointment. We don’t get to see baby, but we do get to hear their heartbeat. 🙂
