14 Week Update

How far along? 14 Weeks & 1 Day

Heartbeat?  135 bpm – although I could barely hear it over the screaming toddler in the room.  I mean seriously, who brings their 18 month old to an OB visit??  Even if it is a quick one??  Oh wait…that was me :(

Total weight gain/loss: + 5 lbs

Maternity clothes? Not really, but I did wear a pair of maternity dress pants to church Sunday night.  However, they were really loose even with the bella band that I kept having to pull them up.  I can still fit into my jeans, but most of my dress pants are getting a little snug :)

Stretch marks? No – and I doubt they will appear since I didn’t get them with Collin either.

Sleep?  Still really hard to sleep lately…either not able to go to sleep with about a billion things running through my mind…or if I am able to fall asleep I wake up a billion times to run to the bathroom.  I don’t remember it being like this with Collin?

Best moment this week:   Going shopping with the whole family & picking out a few things for baby :)

Movement: I think I have felt some baby “fluttering” a few times, but I am still not sure.

Food cravings:  I just made buttermilk biscuits at 10:00pm and ate 2 – does that count?

Gender: I had my 12 week ultrasound a few weeks ago where they check the neural tube, etc. and she told me that she was 90% sure of the gender of the baby…but I’m not posting it on FB or blog until we are 100% sure :)  If you want to know just ask :)

Labor Signs: No, but I didn’t ever go into labor with Collin so I doubt there will be much action here.

Belly Button in or out? In, and it stayed in the whole time I was pregnant before too.

What I miss: Sleeping all night without waking up.

What I am looking forward to: Right now I am just enjoying every moment.

Milestones:  Hearing the heartbeat – music to my ears (even if it was music barely heard over the screaming of a very angry little boy) hehe!

how exciting!!! Don't worry Julie I had to take Noah to all my reg OB appts, but my high risk doc didn't allow kids so I always had to get a sitter.... So I'm familiar with the child in the exam room haha :) Can't wait to find out what you're having!! Hope you are able to get more sleep soon!

Don't feel bad about Collin screaming during the heartbeat! The first time that Brooke heard it she freaked, and I was holding her! :) lol. Brookelynne ends up going to pretty much all of my OB appts, so don't feel bad. But if you don't want Collin tagging along for all of them, don't hesitate to let me know, and I am more than happy to keep him for you! :)

Thanks Jenn! Usually I do leave him with someone but I thought I would try it "just to see"...big failure. I will let you know when the next one is b/c I have to have blood drawn & I know he won't sit still through that haha!
