14 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 14 Weeks

Size of baby: Baby F is the size of a lemon

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 4.5 lbs

Maternity Clothes: I think I'm really starting to push the limit with the safety pins. Mike laughed out loud at me and then insisted to get a picture. I obliged but I'm pretty sure I'll be sporting my new maternity jeans to work this Friday.

Gender: I've had 3 dreams it's a girl...can't wait to find out if Turtle is a Michael or a Brooke!

Movement: On Sunday I was laying on the sofa with my belly out and I saw my stomach was moving. I told Mike to come quick and he saw it too. "Is that Turtle?!?!?!?!" Mike's reply, "Um, I think that's just your stomach twitching." So, still nothing official.

Sleep: Still waking up during the night. Usually around 2/2:30ish and then again around 4/4:30ish.

What I miss: Dr. Pepper

Cravings: I was on a Cheetos kick for a few days but that quickly switched to break and bake chocolate chip cookies. I may or may not have had 7 (out of 12) within 24 hours of making them. They're just SOOOOOO good!

Symptoms: Only had a few bouts of morning sickness and I've been randomly getting nauseous during the afternoon. Thankfully, the afternoon bits haven't interfered with supper.

Best Moment this week: We made our first baby purchase this week. We got a BOB jogging stroller! Our kid might not have a crib to sleep in but it's got the mack daddy of jogging strollers. Mike got really excited when he saw it in my car and immediately started pushing it around the driveway. After a few seconds he said "Man! This thing is smoother than a Cadillac!" I have to agree...I've been testing it out by pushing it all around the kitchen, dining room and living room. :)

And now for my small dilema, our 16 week docter's appointment is scheduled for October 26th and our sheet that the doctor gave us does not indicate that it's an ultrasound appointment. :( We have the option to get the 3D ultrasound to find out the gender 'early' (which we'd have to pay out of pocket and I think it's upwards of $100+) OR we wait until our 20 week appointment and find out the gender then (which is already scheduled for November 24th - the day before Thanksgiving). My dilema is do we wait or do we find out early? Decisions, decisions.


  1. If it were me.....I would save that money and spend it on lots of great clothes or something fun once you find out the gender a couple weeks later. Time flies! You crack me up testing out the stroller!!! You guys are too cute!

  2. I have to say, the stroller is the best! Id wait on the sex too and save the money. Itd be fun to announce the sex and Thanksgiving dinner!
