Oh Baby! Week 14 of 40

I feel like I look real pregnant in this pic.

I am officially in my 2nd Trimester!  We had a doctor’s appointment on Friday and got to hear our little lemon’s heartbeat again, which was 148.  Although my doctor said that is doesn’t really mean anything, according to old wives tales 148 falls into the girl range.  That is kind of exciting but even more exciting is that on Friday we made our appointment for our sonogram which is next month!  I can’t wait to find out what we are having.

Pregnancy Stats

  • Weeks Pregnant:  13 Weeks 6 Days
  • Size of my tiny baby:  A lemon  (Length:  3  in.)
  • My Weight:  122.4 lbs.  Total Gain:  7.4 lbs.

How am I feeling?

  • Emotionally:  I am starting to feel slightly crazy.  I worry about things I can’t control, like Ben dying in a car wreck or our baby having a 3rd eye.  I am going to assume this is just part of pregnancy and not dwell on it.  On a positive note, I am starting to feel better about the birth process.  Until Friday I was terrified of my vagina ripping.  I am just being honest.  The thought of it does not make me look forward to giving birth but after talking to my doctor on Friday, I do feel better.  He told me that ripping doesn’t always occur and statistically it only happens about 20-25% of the time.  I love facts and statics, they calm me.  I am not always a rational person but give me a statistic and I suddenly feel way more rational.
  • Physically:  I am still exhausted but my doctor told me to give it a week to 10 days and I should start to feel like I have more energy.  Ben and I are walking more, so that is good.   The other night we walked 3 miles after work and it felt great.
  • Fun Pregnancy Stuff:  I bought a pair of maternity jeggings from Old Navy and I love them.  They are so comfy.  They don’t really so much fit like jeggings but more like skinny jeans.  I am okay with that.  
  • Cravings:  I have still been craving pickles but now I am also craving orange juice, cucumbers and cereal.  But I have always been a fan of cereal so that my not be a pregnancy craving.

      The elastic band at the top is really nice, especially since nobody sees that part.
