14 Weeks

(This is one of a series of scheduled posts that I've written since I found out that Jacob and I were expecting our first child.  The original composition date is included below).

Oct 18:

Size of baby: According to babyzone.com, baby’s about the size of a lemon!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Haven't weighed myself this week... and I'm ok with that.  Especially since I ate a LOT of pizza yesterday... and then cried at the TV.  Yup.  I'm pregnant. =P

Maternity Clothes: No real bump yet to have to dress...

Gender: 50% chance of either! =)

Movement:  Nothing yet.  I think I still have a few weeks until anything is supposed to happen...?

What I miss: Daylight.  This whole getting-dark-earlier, getting-light-later thing is messing with me.

Sleep:  Sleeping ok... but I've had a cold for the last week, so it's been a constant struggle between waking up having to pee, or having to blow my nose or cough.

Symptoms: I'm doing ok.  I get these weird little cramps every now and then, and I don't know whether to blame it on baby or gas! lol

Cravings: No real cravings.  Unless you count that last night anything warm and bready sounded good to me.

Best Moment this week: Let everyone at work in on the news.  I sent out an all agency e-mail with the subject line:  Not (just) eating a lot of cake.  =)

What I am looking forward to: Finally starting to think/plan about baby stuff.  I didn't really let myself think/talk about it much during the first trimester (fear), but now I'm starting to feel more confident in the whole thing.

Those little cramps are probably round ligament pain and totally normal. I think I started to feel the first "bubbles" around week 16 or 17 so you should feel them in the next few weeks!!
