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 five 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 not 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 still not quite there yet with the maternity ones.
Sleep? Nope — still not getting any. I slept for a good 8 hours 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 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 it’s first Packer disappointment (get used to it, kid) on Sunday when they gave up a 12 point lead with three minutes left in the game.
Food cravings?: Slushies from Sonic. Give me all the flavors mixed together. So good.
Daddy seems to be doing good. We have a crap ton of stuff to do to the house, so the stress level is pretty high. We’re hoping to get the majority knocked out before I’m too huge (or just don’t want to) to do anything.
