Hello, 2nd trimester

How far along? 14 weeks

Due Date: August 2, 2011

Total weight gain/loss: 1 pound

Maternity clothes? 1 pair of maternity jeans and a few tops, but still getting by mostly with comfy pants and regular shirts.

Stretch Marks? Nothing yet....hope it stays this way.

Sleep: Pretty restless.  Aside from 3-5 trips every night to pee, I toss and turn all night long trying to find a comfortable position. 

Best moment this week: Finally reaching my 2nd trimester!  Worst moment of the week?  Having my doctor's appointment canceled yesterday due to weather.  :(

Movement: still too early for this

Food cravings: Food in general.  Thankfully my nausea has passed, so now most everything sounds good to me.  I've been battling with hypoglycemia for the last 5 or so days, so I'm trying to include protein with every meal and focus on eating every 2-3 hours, which has proven to be a challenge.

Food aversions: CHICKEN!
Gender: unknown

Labor Signs: I've still had some mild cramping every day throughout my pregnancy, but no spotting since 6 weeks so hopefully everything is ok.

Belly Button in or out? Innie.

What I miss: Feeling like myself.  Since I didn't really know what pregnancy would feel like, I guess I assumed I would feel like myself until I was far enough along to feel the baby move.  Then I thought I'd feel like myself, but with a baby moving inside me and having to wear bigger pants.  Obviously, things have not happened like I thought they would.  (All of you who have had babies are probably laughing at me right now!)

What I am looking forward to: Not feeling so tired all the time.

Milestones: Your adorable little fetus is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, and (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over the body for warmth. 


  1. Awww, poor momma. Glad your nausea is improving though. Our office has been closed for the last two days as well - I hate not being there for our patients! Let me know if you need/want to chat - with 2 under 2 I've been there and done that twice now, ha! XO Jules

  2. umm, where is a bump pic??? You should get on that!
