14 weeks

Maternity clothes: Yay! Went shopping with Mom and Jen while in Florida and got a couple more things, and then a girl at work was cleaning out her closet and gave me a bunch of stuff too!

Stretch marks: Nope.

Sleep: Not bad, usually. Last night was rough because of my sore throat and stuffy nose. Stupid dumb allergies.

Best moment this week: I got to see my mom!

Movement: Finally had a bowel movement after 3 days! Hahaha...

Food cravings/aversions: I still don't really want meat, except for the chicken in my lovely chicken pot pies.

Gender: Feeling boy this week.

What I miss: The small bit of motivation I used to have to clean up the kitchen or do a load of laundry.

What I am looking forward to: Getting my sense of smell and taste back so I can enjoy my food again!

What I have learned: I don't think I am a happy, glowy type of pregnant woman. I think I just have a good ability to put up with lots of crap.

Milestones: Full-on 2nd trimester!

12 weeks

Maternity clothes: I don't even bother to wear anything but maternity clothes. Why should I? Picked up a pair of jeans, a pair of capris, and a couple tents shirts from Target. Woot!

Stretch marks: Nope. *fingers crossed*

Sleep: Love sleep again! Going to bed at 9:30 is awesome, and the last few nights I didn't have to get up to pee!

Best moment this week: At doc appt #2, we heard the little heartbeat! 156 beats per minute puts our sweet pea just a tad on the higher side of the normal range, which is 120-180 bpm.

Movement: Not baby movement, but my uterus has now moved above my pelvic bone where I can FEEL IT! This is awesome and weird. Awesomely weird.

Food cravings/aversions: Cravings and aversions have calmed down quite a bit, most likely thanks to my new BFF, Zofran. It's a lovely little pill that takes away the nausea. *happy dance*

Gender: A girl wouldn't be so bad I guess...

What I miss: I miss NOT being tired.

What I am looking forward to: Seeing the baby? Check. Hearing the baby? Check. Now I want to feel the baby!

What I have learned: If you feel crappy, call the doctor's office and complain to the nurse. At the worst, she will tell you to come into the office to get checked out. At best, she will tell you what you're feeling is normal and not to worry, she will help you fix it. If the doctor is willing to prescribe you drugs, take them.

Milestones: Heartbeat!
