I’ve never been pregnant and blogging at the same time so I thought I better do at least one of these. I kept pregnancy books with kids and it’s fun to look back.
How far along: 14 weeks
Baby size: A lemon this week
Total weight gain: I just went to the doctor yesterday and I’m at 5lbs. I gained 20lbs with my other two pregnancies. I’m ahead of where I was with them this time. I’m also AMA (advanced maternal age) so I hope that slower metabolism doesn’t work against me!
Sleep: Good and lots of it! I hit a wall each day in the late afternoon and often end up taking a nap after work. Growing a baby is hard work!
Maternity clothes: I’m wearing some maternity shirts because they are longer but my jeans still fit, so far.
Food cravings: Carbs and ice cream…..no wonder I’ve gained 5lbs! A fellow pregnant friend posted about loving honey toast. It sounded good so that has become my go to breakfast.
Food aversions: Meat
Symptoms: Nausea and fatigue. The nausea comes and goes but thankfully, I’ve never gotten sick.
Appointments: The kids got to hear the heartbeat yesterday. Nolan said, “That’s cool that he knows how to gallop!” The next appointment will be an anatomy scan with the specialist, since I’m AMA.
Movement: Not feeling any movement yet but I felt it at 15 weeks with Nolan so I expect it soon.
Gender: Boy! We found out with the Harmony test at 11 weeks.
What I miss: Sushi and wine.
Nursery progress: Target had a deal on a crib and bassinet so we have those. I also bought a newborn to 3 month lot of clothing from one of those Facebook sites. I think I have Tim talked into a planked wall behind the crib. I’m excited for him to get started!
