How far along? 14 weeks — baby is the size of a lemon! Baby’s face is developing and baby even may be able to suck its thumb!
Weight gain: I’m going to go ahead and say 5 pounds. Who the hell knows? I’m starting to feel gigantic, though. I’ll know for sure next Monday.
I’m feeling: Really, really itchy. For some reason, I itch like crazy. I’ve heard that this can be a symptom, but no matter how much lotion I put on, it doesn’t seem to help. I’m still feeling really overwhelmed — with all the work we’re doing to our house, and still really feeling like I don’t know what the heck is going on, I’m just super stressed. Which I know is bad — I’m sure baby doesn’t like it.
Maternity clothes? My mom got me the most awesome maternity yoga pants, and I haven’t gotten out of the things. I’ve been doing the hair tie trick with my jeans, since I’m not quite big enough to get into the maternity jeans. Although I tried them on, and they’re really comfy.
Sleep? Nope. Still not getting any. I slept for a good 8 hours or so on Saturday – only getting up once and being able to immediately fall back asleep. I don’t have such high hopes for the rest of the nights, but have found out that sleeping on an incline definitely helps. If anything, it definitely helps with the permanent stuffy nose I seem to have acquired.
Miss anything? I’m just going to straight up say it and not even feel bad — I miss wine. I miss it so much on bad days and when the Packers suck. Baby had to suffer through its first disappointment on Saturday when the Packers gave up an enormous lead with 3 minutes left in the game.
Food cravings? Slushies from Sonic. I know it’s weird, but pretty much any of the flavors and vanilla. I mean, I could think of worse things to be hooked on. Nothing else, though.
Daddy seems to be doing good. We have a lot of projects going on in this house — renovating the basement and trying to get a bathroom added, so the stress level is pretty high around here. We’re hoping to have everything done in a few months — before I get too huge to do anything!
