14 Week Pregnancy Update

How far along? 14 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Gained 5 lbs (not normal for me this early in pregnancy)

Maternity clothes? No but no more buttons on my pants

Stretch marks? Only the left overs from the other two

Food Cravings? Cookies, Bread, Berry Shebert (also I don't give into this craving, but I'm craving beer and wine) Pizza , cream of wheat, and chedder cheese

Food Aversions? Soda, things that are too salty, and MEAT

Best moment this week? Getting the call from the diagnositic center that the 1st trimester screening came back with great results. :)

Movement: I still think so, it's very slight and not often, but yes I think so.

Gender: Intelligender says girl, but no rooms will be painted

Labor Signs: Nope

Weekly Wisdom: If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all. I'm a very mean pregnant lady this time around and my hubby is getting the most of my tude. He's been a real trooper as far as biting his tounge but i'm starting to pull my weight dealing with the hormones of pregnancy. I spend a lot of time away from him, just because I'm so mean. I love him dearly and I don't know what's wrong with me, but this pregnancy has made me mean.

Milestones: This week's big developments: Your baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb! Thanks to brain impulses, his facial muscles are getting a workout as his tiny features form one expression after another. His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him — a process he'll keep up until birth. He can grasp, too, and if you're having an ultrasound now, you may even catch him sucking his thumb.In other news: Your baby's stretching out. From head to bottom, he measures 3 1/2 inches — about the size of a lemon — and he weighs 1 1/2 ounces. His body's growing faster than his head, which now sits upon a more distinct neck. By the end of this week, his arms will have grown to a length that's in proportion to the rest of his body. (His legs still have some lengthening to do.) He's starting to develop an ultra-fine, downy covering of hair, called lanugo, all over his body. Your baby's liver starts making bile this week — a sign that it's doing its job right — and his spleen starts helping in the production of red blood cells. Though you can't feel his tiny punches and kicks yet, your little pugilist's hands and feet (which now measure about 1/2 inch long) are more flexible and active.


  1. Things sound great and I'm praying for you always.


  2. Ugh, meat has always been an aversion of mine in pregnancy. This time it isn't as bad but with Kyndra it was!

    Glad the 1st trimester screening came back good!

  3. What a good hubby!! A womans hormones, pregnant or not, are not something to mess with! =). I'm so happy everything came back great!
