Third Pregnancy :: Week 14

Third Pregnancy :: Week 14

Week 14 Photo Series_Third Pregnancy

Age of Abigail ::
2 years, 10 months

Age of Mackenzie ::
12 months

How far along:
14 weeks

How big is baby:
The size of a lemon

Weight gain this week (followed by total weight gain for this pregnancy thus far):
0 lbs (4 lbs total)

Maternity clothes:
Maternity clothes are definitely on the horizon. My belly is officially starting to grow a little bit. Not enough for people to know I’m pregnant, but enough for my pants to feel way too snug.  That being said, I wear yoga pants 99% of the time, so I don’t have to break out my “real clothes” very often.

Stretch marks:
None.

Belly button:
Innie.

Sleep:
I’ve been sleeping so well. I’ve been experiencing some crazy dreams (like I do with every pregnancy), but they don’t keep me up!

Best moment of the week:
Having a break over the weekend and getting away to LA with Travis. As much as I missed the girls (which was a LOT – I’m not used to being away from them), I came back feeling rested and more patient than usual.

Food cravings:
Chicken curry. Good thing I’ll be making it tomorrow!

Food aversions:
I haven’t had any aversions to food, but I must say that it’s been odd to not have a sweet tooth. Normally eating chocolate is my favorite part of the day, but I’ve been on a major savory kick lately and my sweet tooth has been on the missing list. Odd! (and I write this after consuming 4 Oreos…maybe my sweet tooth is back?!)

Symptoms:
I still have low energy but other than that, I’m feeling pretty darn good.  Oh, wait…heartburn is already back…UGH! Bring on the Tums…

Movement:
I swear I felt some movement over the weekend. I know it’s early, but it was right around this time in my last pregnancy that I started feeling the baby move. Now that I’m an “expert” in this whole pregnancy thing, I’m pretty sure I know what a tiny moving baby feels like. It’s getting so exciting and real!

Gender:
TBD.

What I’m looking forward to:
Our new couch getting delivered this week – I know I said that last week, but it never arrived. That sucker better arrive this week!  I want it here for Thanksgiving!

What I’m nervous about:
Hosting my first Thanksgiving (I suppose we “hosted” it last year but we had a 3 week old so we bought a cooked turkey from Safeway so that doesn’t count). I’m also very excited because I LOVE to cook and I’ve found some incredible recipes (like Salted Caramel Apple Pie…you’re drooling, aren’t you?), but it’s the actual prep of everything that makes me a little nervous.  It’s hard to get much done around here with two little crazies running around all the time!!

What I miss:
My family! I can’t wait to see them in a month!

Next appointment:
12.3.13

Comparison to my First Pregnancy (Abigail):
There is no comparison to my First Pregnancy…yet!  We’re getting close!

Comparison to my Second Pregnancy (Mackenzie):
Here’s Week 14!

Until next time,

      🙂 I need to go get some more spices…I’m running out again because I make it so frequently!! My mortar and pestle even broke the other day so I had to get a new one…sheesh!

    In the weight gain section, what does the 0 lbs (4 lbs total) mean? The weight of the baby and your pregnancy weight gain? Clarification please. I love the black and white photos this time around, they will really look great once your bump starts to get larger!

    • 7x7xMommy says:

      Hi Tiffany! I definitely need to clarify that…thanks for pointing it out! The first number (0 lbs in this case) is the weight I gained for the week…and the total number is the total for the pregnancy thus far. I’ll try to fix that today so it’s clearer. 🙂 And yay, I’m glad you like the black and white! I like it a lot too…plus, this way I don’t have to worry about putting makeup on! haha…black and white is a lot more forgiving!
