14 Weeks

How far along? 14 weeks and 0 days

Baby’s Size: 3 1/2 inches

Baby’s Weight: 1 - 1 1/2 ounces

Development: My baby can now make facial expressions! He/she can grimace, frown, and squint. His/her arms have been growing a lot and are now in proportion to the rest of the body.

Weight gain/loss: I don't have a scale at my parents' house to weigh myself, so I'm not sure.

Maternity clothes? I got some great tops for Christmas, but I can't wear them yet.

Best moment this week? This is the first time I've seen any of my relatives since I got pregnant, so it's been pretty exciting for everyone.

Symptoms: Some nausea (I took my prenatal vitamin in the morning before eating and got violently ill while out at a restaurant for breakfast), stuffy nose, breakouts, pulling and stretching pains (I tried bowling and bowled worst game ever due to pulling pains in my side every time I released the ball), some short bursts of energy (I've been keeping active with the Wii and I went sledding today).

Food cravings/aversions: Nothing specific. I just get really hungry.

What I'm looking forward to: An actual baby bump that doesn't just look like fat.

Milestones: I'm officially in my second trimester!

What my baby looks like this week: (No picture of me this week. I'm visiting family for Christmas.)

13 weeks

How far along? 13 weeks and 0 days

Baby’s Size: 3 inches

Baby’s Weight: .81 oz or 20 grams

Development: This is the last week of my first trimester. Baby has developed fingerprints, and if it's a girl, she has 2 million eggs in her ovaries! Baby can make a fist and suck his/her thumb now.

Weight gain/loss: I gained 3 pounds this week...yikes!

Maternity clothes? I'm down to 1 pair of jeans that fit. I tried to wear my maternity jeans once but they were too loose.

Best moment this week? Telling my principal! It was such a relief to get it off my chest. She was really happy for me and she's very supportive about me taking the last month of school off.

Symptoms: Fatigue, frequent urination, sore & swollen boobs, stuffy nose, breakouts, extreme thirst, and headaches.

Food cravings/aversions: I keep meaning to eat vegetables or have a salad, but I just can't bring myself to do it. All I want to eat is junk food and sweets.

What I'm looking forward to: Finding out the sex! It seems so far away...

Milestones: We went public this week! Everyone knows now.

Garlic and Cake Frosting

Last night I was putting frosting on a cake while DH was doing dishes. All of a sudden, some horrendous odor wafted from the drain. It smelled like garlic from 3 days ago. That smell did NOT mix well with the smell of cream cheese frosting and I froze in place, trying not to puke on my cake. The more I thought about the smell, the worse it got.

DH started laughing at me and so did I. Soon I was laughing hysterically, but also gagging a little, and tears started pouring down my face. The harder I laughed, the harder I cried and I was literally sobbing, but laughing like crazy.

I had to leave the kitchen since at that point I was sobbing, laughing, and coughing all at once. Once I composed myself, I tried to go finish frosting the cake, but every time I thought about setting foot in the kitchen, a new wave of disgust washed over me.

I started laughing and crying all over again, and by now I had to pee, so a little pee came out too. What a hot mess I was! Lol...DH had to finish frosting the cake.

12 Week Ultrasound!

I'm so excited to almost be done with the first trimester! We got to see the little guy (yes, right now my husband and I think it's a boy) on Thursday at 11 weeks 5 days. The baby was moving around like crazy, waving his arms and legs a lot. At one point, I was able to make out the fingers on one of his hands! Here's our latest picture:

And here's what happens when I'm bored and playing around on Picnik, lol:

12 weeks

How far along? 12 weeks and 0 days

Baby’s Size: 2 1/2 inches

Baby’s Weight: 1/2 ounce (the weight of two sugar packets)

Development: Baby's eyes have moved to the front of his/her head and the ears are in place. Fingernails and toenails are developing this week, and baby is able to swallow now. Baby is also developing reflexes.

Weight gain/loss: I've gained about a 1/2 pound this week.

Maternity clothes? I'm officially packing on the pounds...my "fat pants" are now too tight to button...yikes!

Best moment this week? Seeing the baby flailing its arms and legs at at our ultrasound on Thursday. It was so neat to see the little hands waving around. It's really starting to look like a little person!

Symptoms: Fatigue, frequent urination, sore & swollen boobs, stuffy nose, dry skin, and some spotting this weekend.

Food cravings/aversions: This week I'm loving mandarin oranges, Mexican food (especially enchiladas), and cookies

What I'm looking forward to: Our NT scan is on Tuesday, and I'm pretty nervous, but hopeful that there are no major problems with the baby. I'm looking forward to getting over this hurdle and sailing into the 2nd trimester.

Milestones: If all goes well with our NT scan, I will tell all of my friends, coworkers, and Facebook this week!

11 weeks

How far along? 11 weeks and 0 days

Baby’s Size: 2 inches

Baby’s Weight: 1/3 ounce (the weight of two sugar packets)

Development: Baby is now able to move around a lot and do somersaults!

Weight gain/loss: I gained 2 pounds this week

Maternity clothes? I don't bother buttoning my favorite pair of jeans anymore. I love my Bella Band!

Best moment this week? This morning I tried to hear the heartbeat with my doppler, and I put the wand directly on the baby on the first try! It registered the heartbeat instantly! I'm now able to find it in about 10 seconds each time I try.

Symptoms: Fatigue, frequent urination, sore boobs, stuffy nose, and dry skin with breakouts...fun!. I'm also noticing that my tiny boobs are getting fuller--I'm finding myself almost spilling out of some of my tops.

Food cravings/aversions: I've been craving pizza and cookies...that might have something to do with the 2 pounds I gained this week!

What I'm looking forward to: Having everyone know--the thought of telling people is really stressing me out, and I keep chickening out.

Milestones: All of my baby's vital organs have developed and are functioning (they are still maturing, though), so the risk of defects goes down a lot now.
