14 Weeks

I'm a little late on my weekly progress report but I have valid excuses. My brother's wedding, lots of resting, and eating everything in sight has kept me pretty busy this week. I feel completely better. The flu ick is gone along with the morning sickness. I should be pretty happy about these things - and I am - but it basically means that in no time I will be eating 2 breakfasts and purchasing whole cakes as an afternoon snack. I gain a lot of weight while pregnant, and this week validates that. Sigh.


Weight gain: I don't think I want to play this game anymore. At least not weekly. Since this is my blog and I'm starting to gain ridiculous amounts of weight in a matter of days, I'm going to withhold answering this portion of the stats. At least until my next doctor's visit next week.
Stretch marks: None.
Movement: It's hard to tell. I'm feeling the tiny, bubbly flutters I've been feeling for a few weeks now, but they could very well be fluttery gas bubbles.
Cravings: Everything. Enough said.
Sleep: I've been sleeping great. And with Beatrice sleeping until 9 a few mornings this weekend, I am feeling mighty rested these days.
Best moment of the week: Stepping into the 2nd trimester and realizing that I only have 5 more months to meet this baby.
Gender: I'm starting to wonder if it's a girl since I keep having girl dreams.
Labor signs: None.
Belly button situation: In, but surrounded by a big, fat belly full of apple fritters and Girl Scout cookies.
What I miss: Red wine sips would be nice every once in awhile.
What I'm looking forward to: Finding out the sex in a few weeks.
Weekly wisdom: Indulging in filet mignon 2 nights in a row along with lots of wedding cake results in more than a few extra pounds....
Milestones: I can no longer say that I have not gained any weight with this pregnancy yet.

Picture? Why yes!

Here's one from 2 years ago with Beatrice.

I think I'm bigger this time around.


  1. You have a great sense of humor! I am enjoying your stats. Please don't stop!

  2. Happy SITS day to you!
    And congratulations on your pregnancy, it's my first time here so I'm off to read some of your posts.

    Have a lovely day,

  3. Happy Happy SITS DAY! :) im your newest follower - can't wait to learn more about yoU! Follow me back so we can stay in touch! Enjoy your special day! :)


  4. What a cute baby bump! I'm stopping by from SITS. Happy SITS Day!

  5. I was definitely bigger with my second baby! Congratulations on your SITS day!

  6. What a cute little bump you have! Congrats!

  7. Pregnancy is such an exciting time! I love your cute little baby belly. I was always so happy once the morning sickness was gone, I think I ate for 2 weeks straight to make up for the first 3 months, lol. Congratulations on your pregnancy and also hope you enjoy your SITS day!

  8. HAPPY SITS DAY! And congrats on baby#2!

    My husband and I had girls names picked out & of course we found out we were having a boy. But my husband chose an AWESOME name. The middle name was harder though, he didn't get his middle name until an hour before we left the hospital.

    Good luck with the pregnancy!

  9. Cute bump! And don't worry, I look bigger this time around too... nothing will ever be a tight/firm as it used to be. Glad things are going well :)

  10. Congratulations on your SITS day and your impending arrival. I hope both are everything you dreamed of.

  11. Happy SITS day! I think lots of women get bigger faster with subsequent pregnancies. My theory is that everything has already stretched out before:)

  12. Congratulations on being featured on SITS and more importantly, on the upcoming arrival of your baby. You are so lucky to be one of the lucky girls who looks adorable while pregnant.

  13. So...I just had this super long comment written out to you, then my connection timed out, like, the second I hit post comment. So...here's something of what I said:

    It's cool getting to see your stat updates, because two of my co-workers were pregnant about the same time last year, and we would ask them everything that was going on with the baby. One girl even came in every week saying that her baby book told her that such-in-such week her baby was a peanut, or a carrot, or a squash, and so on. It was pretty funny, but interesting, too. Hope everything goes well with baby, and happy SITS day! :)

  14. How in the world is your uterus that high? Being an infertile, there's a lot I don't know about birthing babies! Happy SITS Day!!

  15. Oh, I am so jealous. I miscarried a while back, and if I hadn't, you and I would have been pregnant together...

  16. Oh goodness, look at that beautiful baby bump! I wish blogging had been around with my first babies. They were with my 3rd & 4th but I had no clue about them. And ya, I had a good size baby bump this far along too. Can't help it being on the 2nd little one.

    Congrats on your SITS day! Blessings on your pregnancy.


  17. Congrats on your SITS day! I was definitely bigger earlier second time around - probably because I still had all that stretchy skin!
