14 Weeks and Growing
Well, Im officially in my 2nd Trimester. Things are supposed to be getting better and baby is supposed to be rapidly growing and is the size of a lemon now. I should start gaining about a pound a week at this point - we shall see! I have been able to stay awake for longer, but have definitely felt lazier in recent days. It's back to the treadmill this week, though.
Symptoms: Morning Sickness is still here! Ugh, please go away. Heartburn is creeping up more and more as well, but nothing that a few tums cant fix. I've noticed the increase in blood in my system, as everytime I sneeze or blow my nose there's lots of red. And my veins are getting out of control!
Weight Gain: 4 pounds
Cravings: Chickfila and kobe. What I can tolerate is: cereal, candy, crackers, pineapple, grapefruit, tangerines, boxed mac and cheese, panera. Last night I went to Publix and filled my cart with: chocolate milk, hot chocolate, mini russel stover chocolates, chocolate chip cookies, cantaloupe, tangerines and pineapple. Tonight Im making BLTs and sweet potato fries.
Aversions: Mostly everything! I tried to eat Mexican and am just not ready for it, I took maybe 2 bites. Peanut butter is another big thing that I dont want. Pizza, burgers, chicken, veggies, and anything not listed above is not going in my belly right now. I thought that pregnancy was for eating, but it seems to be the opposite so far.
Prepping For Baby: I tried to get a crib on Black Friday but went late and of course did not succeed. My mom is bringing tons of baby things next week though, so I cant wait to see everything! I really want to paint the room at some point soon, maybe January or February.
Gender Prediction: I am still thinking that this is a boy! When I hit the stores at Midnight on Black Friday I ended up in line at Old Navy to checkout, when I started sweating bullets and feeling like I was about to pass out. I got to the car only to throw up some of my thanksgiving meal before being able to go home. So, this baby so far takes after its dad and hates shopping! Dont worry, I will definitely turn that around though!
Today baby and me are making chocolate covered pretzels and watching christmas shows, waiting for this supposed snow to come!
