No bump picture this week. :( Kept forgetting and with Easter and our car dying we've been insanely busy. I promise there will be one next week! :)
I know that during my first bump update I talked about how pregnancy was so different than I ever expected. And it is.
This week I just kept thinking - I really thought I would feel different. Yeah, every once in awhile I don't feel good, and I'm a little more tired than usual...but if I didn't know I was pregnant, I don't know that I would be able to tell. Not sure what I expected. It's just weird to me that physically I don't feel all that different...especially now that I've got most of my energy back and my morning sickness is pretty much gone. Mentally, I am more than aware of that Little Sprout. And emotionally...well, I can be a little bit touchy....but physically it is amazing to me how little I notice.
This week, baby is the size of a: Lemon. In my head a peach is bigger than a lemon...so I feel like my baby shrunk since last week. lol. But my 14 week video said the size of my fist so that was an easy visual. :)
Next appointment: May 1st. Halfway there!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: My weight has been fluctuating a ton lately, which isn't normal for me. It used to be that I would step on the scale and it would be the same day after day. It would fluctuate a tenth or so up or down depending on the time of day...but that's it. Now I'm down 3 lbs, up 1, down 1, up 2, down 1. I think, since last week, I'm about the same. Which I'll take...it's better than losing more!
Exercise: So much more than I have been getting! I've been taking nice long walks with the little one I watch on days when it is nice. Not only is it good for me...but she has so much fun too I think! She just gibber jabbers the whole time or just watched everything go by. Can't wait till I can do this with my own little one! I also did a bit of yard work this weekend which was nice exercise.
Maternity Clothes: Still don't need to wear them. Though certain pants are uncomfy, everything still fits. I did order a pair of shorts though since I found a pretty good deal. And Mom, Dad, and Grandma picked me out a couple of shirts for my Birthday!
Sleep: I've been sleeping really well this week. Thankful for that.
Food Cravings/Aversions: A friend of ours celebrated her first birthday recently. There was a candy bar at the party. I brought home a bag full of candy. Last week I remembered I had it and got some out. There were these amazing sour watermelon candies! And I ran out. It was devastating. Ever since then I've just needed them! Hubby got me a small bag at walmart Saturday night. It is gone. Thinking I might need to order a 5 lb bag. ;)
Movement: Nothing. Not supposed to feel anything for a few more weeks. Cannot wait for that moment!
What I Miss: Accomplishing things. I had a couple of really good days this past week and it felt so good to get things accomplished. But then I hit a road block again. I'm either feeling a little blah, tired, or just not motivated at all...my brain just doesn't want to work.
What I'm Loving: My bump has really made more of an appearance the past few days - just decided to show up I guess. Before, I had to be wearing the right clothes, kind of had to pull them snug...but now, it is kind of hard to hide. Not that I would anyways... ;)
What I'm Looking Forward To: Feeling my baby and seeing my baby again!
Best Moment This Week: My church family noticing my bump and apologizing for just touching without asking. Honestly, I don't mind it. Just don't look forward to random strangers doing that....
Milestones: I am crossing my fingers as I say this, but I think, for the most part, that morning sickness is officially behind me. Yay for the magical 2nd trimester! :) Speaking of - we are 1/3 of the way there! Crazy!
Goals: Eat more. I'm so used to not having an appetite, I've got to make myself eat now that I can. And hopefully I'll gain some weight along the way!
