14 weeks!

Week and day: 14 weeks

Belly Button in or out: still in, but even more shallow.

Wedding rings on or off: on for now.

Food cravings: pickles, pickles and more pickles. Oh, and Birthday cake.

Food aversions: nothing really.

Nausea: Yeah, still here. But worse than the nausea are the durn hot flashes!! They are serious!! I will all of a sudden get sweaty and light headed. I asked the dr about it and he said its fairly common. He said if I wasn't as healthy as I am he might be concerned but since everything else looks perfect, he's not worried. He said the fact that I chase 2 14 month olds around might be why I continue to feel that way for hours at a time. Makes sense, huh?

Energy level: getting better. I might take a nap or two a week, but thats about it.

Weight gain: Maybe 5 lbs.

Mood: Happy still! But, I do get frustrated easily, usually because when I started to get worked up one of my "hot flashes" hits and its hard to stay calm, cool and collected when I feel like I could spontaneously combust at any moment!

Maternity clothes: Absolutely! Wearing 'em and loving 'em!

Size of baby: lemon

Changes of baby: My "baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb!". This is from Making faces and sucking its thumb?? Thats pretty substantial, don't you think??

Next appointment: May 22nd. Blood work only.

Other: Into my second trimester! Thank you, God!! I am still amazed there is a baby inside of me!! I can't wait to feel him moving around.
