Bumpdate. Weeners. Lurve.


How far along are you? 14.5 weeks

How big is Baby? 3.5 inches long and 1.5 oz. The size of a lemon! 

Weight Gain? Well, see... my doctor thinks it's almost 10 lbs, but my "pre-pregnancy" weight is my weight without clothes on. According to my scale, though, I've gained between 5-6 lbs. 

 Gender? We don't know yet - we find out Dec. 21st. 

Maternity Clothes? Nope - my normal clothes are snug, but they still fit. 

Stretch Marks?
 Nope!

Sleep? I'm finally sleeping through the night. 

Symptoms? Still the mood swings, occasional migraines, and pain in my lower back.  

Movement? None that I can feel, but I know the little rascal is probably kicking away. 

Food Cravings? SUGAR. Seriously - candy has been my downfall.  

Labor Signs? None. 

Belly Button in or out? In. 

 What I miss? My body. 

What I am looking forward to? Having a belly that doesn't look like just chub! 

Best moment of the week? Hearing baby's heartbeat - a good 160 bpm.
************************************************************************************
So there's the bumpdate. And now I have some weeners for you... Four, to be exact. In case your mind is in the gutter, that's funny accent for "winners." If your name is on here, you better email me by Sunday, or else... I pick a new winner.

And finally. You guys are amazing. I lurve you all - really, I do. I love that you don't judge me (or if you do, you keep it to yourselves), that you're there to offer me kind words and virtual hugs when I need them. I love this little community that we have, and I love that we can be so honest and open. I love that we are friends. Thank you.

Totally thought wieners. Totally. Also, that would tots be awesome if you could walk on water!

Your little bump is just perfect. And it's good that it's not too noticeable yet, because you don't have the creepy strangers coming up to rub your belly and ask intrusive questions.

I'm seriously considering sending you a box full of candy/cookies, that way you don't feel guilty eating it, you feel like you have to eat it to make me feel like a good person. I've got your back, yo.

It DEFINITELY looks like a bump not chubb! Your body is so tiny there's no way that could be chubb! :)

Alana Christine said...

WOO!

Don't feel bad about craving sugar. The amount of peanut butter/hot fudge sundaes I had from Braum's during my pregnancy was ridiculous.

lori said...

it looks like a baby bump to me, too! you are going to have the cutest belly even full term because you are so tall... so you have plenty of torso room for baby to grow. does that sound weird? just know that i mean it as a compliment. lol.

Sara Louise said...

YAY for the winners! And your baby can pee and then swim around in it... gross :)

Dearest Lou said...

I'm guessing all the weight has gone straight to your boobs because you are looking great woman (; Trust me that belly will come during your second trimester!
