Bye, Bye, First Tri!

Well as of last Saturday, we officially departed the first trimester and headed full on into the 2nd! I can't believe that we're already 14 weeks along, it seems like yesterday we were revealing our big news to everyone. So...as a milestone for entering the 2nd tri, I've decided to start doing some weekly pregnancy updates like so many other bloggers have done in the past.


I realize most of you probably won't care, but if anything this is just for my own personal memory...because we all know that I won't remember these details several months from now!


How Far Along: 14 1/2 Weeks...15 on Saturday!



And my first official blog belly photo...it's not the greatest first photo, but this is what a tired momma looks like after a half-day of work, a dr's appointment, and a fun afternoon of shopping with my mother-in-law. I was definitely ready for some comfy clothes, but really wanted to get a belly photo out there!


Total Weight Gain/Loss: It's really hard to say, the scale is saying about 2-3 lbs at this point but with dr's appointments at 1:30 in the afternoon I really think the scale numbers are going to be a bit skewed! I mean seriously, this momma has got to eat some lunch! So...I've been weighing on a full stomach; or maybe that's just the excuse I'll use for my entire pregnancy! ha!

Gender: I have no idea...but we find out in 5 weeks! Hubby is convinced we're having a little girl, but he's going against the grain as other old wives' tales are indicating a little baby boy!

Movement: Not yet, I can't even begin to imagine how wonderful that will feel! The dr. said yesterday that for a first-time momma I'll probably really start noticing it around 20 weeks.

Sleep: Still fabulous. I had started sleeping with a pillow between my legs before becoming pregnant and that seems to really help me sleep on my side!

What I miss: Jimmy John's...a nice big cold turkey & cheese sandwich! And caesar salad....

Cravings: Nothing really at this point, other than those things that I know I can't have. I think I only crave those because I know I CAN'T have them. I have been missing my Dr. Pepper, but I've started allowing myself one a day if needed for a little pick-me-up.


Symptoms: Definitely feeling a little tired, but not nearly as tired as I was around weeks 8-10 or so...and it's becoming nearly impossible to suck in. Thankfully I completely avoided any morning sickness for this pregnancy; woohoo!

Maternity Clothes: Not quite! I haven't had to officially sideline any of my dress pants or skinny jeans, but I figure it's only a matter of time before those get a Bella Band tossed on to make them work. I'm hoping that several of my loose fitting tops & dresses will last for quite awhile with a nice comfy pair of leggings!

Best Moment this week: Our doctor's appointment, another good, strong, normal heartbeat...everything is still going just fine & we made the official appointment for our Gender Ultrasound! Here we come July 27th!

And I can't believe I'm about to do this...but I figure it's just part of it...so another belly photo, just a little more bare this time.
