14 weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How far along: 14 weeks....start of the second trimester!
Size of baby: about 3 1/2 inches....size of a lemon
Total weight gain: 3 pounds
Maternity Clothes: no
Gender: ? Today, Reese told the doctor it was a girl heart beat.
Movement: The doctor could only hear the heart beat for brief seconds at a time because he/she kept moving, but I haven't felt it yet.
Sleep: I usually wake up about 3-4 times a night - 1 to use the bathroom and the rest are because of crazy dreams.
Symptoms: For the most part, I feel pretty good during the day until late afternoon, then I feel like I've hit a brick wall. Just looking for that boost of energy you're supposed to get in the second trimester.
What I miss: Mt. Dew
Cravings: Nothing really, except I guess you could maybe say meat and tatters, hold the meat, add cream corn! I'm making all that again for supper, and we just had it a week ago. Mmmm!
Best moment of the week: Hearing the heart beat! When it's this early and you can't feel movement yet, hearing the heart beat is always a relief and reassurance that all is going well. I also really enjoyed breakfast at McDonald's after my appt with Reese and Cru. They played so well together; Reese really showed what great big sister she is.
What I'm looking forward to: Getting into a new routine when Reese starts pre-school this week.
