14 Weeks


When I was pregnant with Scarlett, I was still trying to figure out the whole blogging thing (still am!) and so I didn't do weekly updates. I SO wish I had. Thankfully, I did one at 14 weeks with her, so I have a little comparison for this week. The biggest difference I feel in this pregnancy is that I am just SO exhausted. I worked full-time (outside the home) through my whole pregnancy with Scarlett, but it is very different from chasing a busy toddler all day. Otherwise, the pregnancies seem to be pretty similar. I remember feeling sick until at least 15 weeks with Scarlett, and I still feel pretty queazy most days.  

Pregnancy Highlights...
How Far Along: 14 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a lemon. 
Maternity Clothes: Not yet... :)
Gender: Hoping to find out in February! 
Movement: Not yet
Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty good...
What I miss: Having energy. 
Cravings: Grilled cheese with a side of pickles, french fries and a chocolate malt from Dairy Queen. All natural Cheetos. Cherry popsicles. (Yes, I have indulged in all of these cravings... Oh boy, I sound like the object of health, ha!) 
Symptoms: Tired and Hungry. 
Best moment this week: Listening to Scarlett talk about having a “baby sister” (which we do not know what we are having yet, but she is set on a sister. Yikes!) So sweet. 
Looking forward to: Possibly taking some mommy/daughter pictures this weekend if the weather is pretty.
