14 Weeks w/ Belly Shots

How Far Along: 14 weeks (and 1 day)

Maternity Clothes: I purchased my first maternity item this weekend...a bathing suit! And let me tell you it is sexy, hah! Its really just a tankini, but my itty bitty bikini was cutting off circulation in my boobs, and after I ate lunch at the pool the whole beer belly gut wasn't looking too hot. Plus hubby was worried about Skooter getting too warm in the sun. I tried on a couple other things but couldn't pull the plug.

Stretch Marks: Nope.

Sleep: Still super tired at night, but pretty good during the day. And I know my books tell me the whole peeing thing will go away around 12 weeks but I'm still getting up nightly to pee.

Best Moment of the Week: Hmm, I guess the holiday weekend in general was pretty good. We kept saying things like Scooter's first 4th, and Scooter's first swim...since it was actually hot enough for me to get in the pool this weekend! And as we watched the fireworks hubby put his hand on my belly, and it felt like all three of us were watching! I can't wait for him (and me) to start feeling movement down there! Oh, and I think we finalized our names when we were laying at the pool this weekend. I still totally reserve the right to change my mind, but as of today I love our two names! Still debating if I'll share early or not.

Movement: Hopefully getting close to some movement action, my book says at the end of month 4 so we'll see. Probably still a few weeks away.

Food cravings: Still lots of fruit, I made pretzel jello salad for the 4th and that has definitely been hitting the spot. Oh, and spaghetti is definitely up there!

Gender: Hubby and I are both thinking girl now. Although I refer to Skooter as a he always!
What I Miss: So I'm getting use to the lack of ultrasounds now, only because I have my trustly doppler on my nightstand. I guess if I had to admit one thing it would be iced coffees from star.bucks. On the weekends hubby and I walk to our little downtown for star.bucks, and my iced tea lemonade (no caffeine if you get passion tea) is just not the same. I suppose I could get decaf, but isn't there still caffeine in that?

What I'm Looking Forward To: My next OB appt which is a week from Friday, hubby and I are hoping we can sneak in an u/s somehow. Still trying to figure out how exactly, but I'm determined to see Skooter!

Weekly Wisdom: Be careful when holding other people's drinks! This weekend at the parade hubby gave me his cup of beer to hold while he unfolded chairs, well I took a swig of his beer instead of my lemonade...and I of course know one sip of beer would be absolutely fine. But instead I freaked and spit it out on the street in front of tons of people, hah! It just tasted so wrong in my mouth I couldn't even swallow!

Milestones: Told my boss today! So I'm officially out of the closet now!

Emotions: I guess the same as usual, so unbelievably excited...but the nerves are still there. I'm getting better at pushing them to the back of my head though. And openly talking baby stuff with people who have heard the news, even allowing myself to daydream about baby stuff and nursery ideas. But even today before telling my boss I had to call hubby and make sure I wasn't jinxing everything by telling. And I just can't believe I'm 14 weeks!

You look absolutely amazing! I love the bump. Just adorable, and you definitely have that gorgeous pregnancy glow. I can't believe you are at 14 weeks either. How did your boss take the news?

Crossed Fingers said...

Aw so cute! Part of me is starting to get more excited each day too - I love to hear the excitement in your posts!

Trinity said...

Ahhhh, you look so darn cute! :) Which reminds me... I should take a bump picture one of these days. I've been so nervous to do it, but I am do my best as well to pull out of these irrational worries. :) Glad you guys had a great 4th!

If it's any consolation, I mindlessly ate a medium rare steak this weekend. Okay, not the WHOLE thing--barely half, actually--but I spent the rest of the evening googling how bad this might have been for pregnancy. Sigh.

I *think* we're going to forgo finding out the baby's sex (at least that's what we've decided this week anyway), but that doesn't stop me from looking at Chinese gender charts and heart rate indicators, etc. Hehehe, it's fun to guess...

P.S. I still have mid-night pee breaks as well. Usually followed by my inability to go back to sleep. ;)

Awww so cute!

And screw the books on when stuff "should" happen. It'll happen when it's right for you and your baby.

AplusB said...

Aw, you look so cute! Too funny about spitting out the beer...I would have done the same thing!

Erin said...

You are looking so cute!!!

I started feeling a tiny bit of movement at the end of 15 weeks, but another friend of mine didn't feel anything until 21 weeks. It's different for everyone, so don't panic if it doesn't happen right away!

Shanny said...

Yay for 14 weeks, you look awesome!!!!!

Ashley said...

You look great!! I love your little baby bump! :) I think you should share your names...especially since you are keeping us all in suspense and not finding out the gender. :)
