First off, I want to apologize for not having any outfit posts this week, but in all honestly, last week Grant was at Vacation Bible School each day and I was wearing a lot of tees and shorts-nothing really too exciting. So, instead, I thought I'd share a Bumpdate post with you all today. I wasn't sure if I'd plan to do these or not, but my sister talked me into it. ;) So, here goes!
Weeks along: 14 weeks today
Size of the baby? The size of a lemon- about 1lb 2oz and 3 1/2 inches long
Must haves: Just like with Grant, I'm craving smoothies and Slushies, yum! I'm also drinking a lot of water and have been pretty much steering clear of pop. I'm also loving all carbs, like chips, which I wasn't a fan of beforehand.
Sleep: Not great, but better than at the beginning of my pregnancy. I'm generally a person who sleeps on their stomach, so sleeping on my side has been an adjustment. I've also learned a good pillow is a must! I'm also generally napping during Grant's rest time, which is nice too.
Baby Movement: When I place my hand on my stomach I feel like I felt a bit of movement, but nothing huge yet.
Gender: We won't find out until August, then I'll either have a lot of boys clothes to sell, or almost nothing to buy. Either way, I just want a healthy baby!
Weight Gain: Nothing yet. I actually lost a few pounds when I had a ton of morning sickness, then gained it back from week 8 to week 12. I have been very hungry, though, so I'm a bit anxious about weight gain. We belong to the YMCA, so working out in the morning is both good for me and the baby. : )
Challenges: I'm really feeling so much better than I did during the beginning, I really can't complain. I do have to make myself eat fruits and vegetables though, I really have not been wanting them at all!
Best moment of the week: I've just been enjoying time with family and am thankful for summers off!
