14 Weeks



How Far Along: 14 weeks as of last Monday (I really intended to write this post on Monday, but LIFE)

Size of Baby: Lemon

Weight Gain: 2ish pounds - some days the scale shows no gain, other days it's 1-2 pounds

Stretch Marks: Not yet - hopefully not ever

Maternity Clothes:  I've got several pair of pants recently that are elastic-waisted so that I can wear them throughout pregnancy and after.  I have maternity items, but my belly just isn't quite big enough for them yet.  I'm okay with that.  I also made an attempt at the belly band for Superbowl Sunday and let's just be real - those things don't hold your jeans up.  There, I said it.

Gender:  Not sure yet, but I made an appoint for us to get a 4D ultrasound down next weekend so that we can take CT and he can see his baby brother/sister.  This will also tell us a little early (16 weeks) what we can expect in August!

Movement:  Feeling little flutters- like butterfly wings

Sleep:  It's not great - I could use more (said every mom ever) and it would be nice if my toddler and dogs would stop ganging up on me trying to stop that from happening.

Missing:  Wine. But I have concocted my own little "mocktail" of gingerale and OJ and it's pretty good for the nights I want to feel like I'm drinking something special.

Loving:  Crossing things off our to-do list around the house.  I spent last Saturday deep-cleaning the house and felt incredibly good and proud of that achievement.  

Craving:  Lemon in my water.  Fruit and fresh veggies.  Spring!  I'm ready for the cold weather to either show up with some snow or move out.

Feeling: Finally back to myself! A really, really tired version of myself. But, my energy is back and I've made two 5am workouts in a row this week!  

Looking Forward: Spending as much one on one time with CT as possible.  Date nights with my husband.  A potential family vacation over spring break.  I'm really excited about the appointment so that CT can really see the baby - he talks about the baby a lot, but I'm excited to see his reaction when he realizes it's real.

Best Moment(s): Superbowl Sunday we had family and friends over for the game and that was really fun + superbowl food is pretty much the best ever.  My sweet MIL gave me a china cabinet for my birthday (and painted it!!) and I was finally able to display our wedding china after 5 years of marriage.  I've welcomed 6 new coaches to my team recently and I'm just really excited about helping these women crush their goals, launch their business, and really change their family's lives.
