Week 14

I couldn't decide if I wanted to blog weekly about my pregnancy or not.  While my blog isn't exclusively training related, I just couldn't decide.  I have used my blog as a journal of sorts though and writing in a separate pregnancy journal seemed overwhelming for some reason.  So I think I'll post somewhat regularly with baby news....especially for our far away friends and family who want to be involved.  And if you don't care, just skip any post that starts with "week" in your blog readers.  :)

So here it goes:
14 weeks

How far along? 14 Weeks
Maternity clothes?  I'm still squeezing into some pants but most are now unbuttoned and I have to wear a belly belt to keep from showing too much.  I have purchased a couple pairs of materinity pants on clearance and at the consignment store but they are too big right now.  I'm just in that awkward phase...
Have you started to show yet:  I don't think the casual acquaintance/stranger would notice but The Pilot has pointed out that things are looking different.  (He tries to put that delicately, thank goodness.)  Meanwhile, I feel like I look fat, not pregnant just yet.
Heartburn, sore hips, crazy low back pain and a few others than the internet doesn't need to know about.
I'm still plagued by random bouts of fatigue so I'm still not back into a workout routine.  I'm hoping this weekend will jump start some real activity (I didn't count the miles and miles I walked at Ikea last weekend).
Best moment this week: I think I may have felt some flutters...or it was one of those unmentioned symptoms.  Hard to tell at this point.  
Miss Anything?  Sleeping well, having energy, my Monday morning Pepsi (I stopped drinking caffeine when I found out I was pregnant).  
Movement: Maybe?  That or it was GI movement.  Nice.
Food cravings: Salt and vinegar potato chips, cookies.  Both things that I would hardly ever eat pre-pregnancy.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not as much anymore but the smell of any onion product makes my stomach turn.
Gender:  Don't know yet...should find out in April though.    
Looking forward to:  Feeling the baby move, feeling pregnant instead of fat.  
What I am NOT looking forward to: Growing more and more uncomfortable.  I'm already not sleeping through the night because of random aches and trips to the bathroom.  
Milestones: Surviving the first trimester!

  1. Yay, I fully support weekly pregnancy posts! These were my best record of the pregnancy, as I got kind of lazy about updating the other journal-type book I had. Yeah, it's hard when you are in that in-between stage of not really showing yet, but if you're like me, you will balloon overnight and wonder sort of miss the less pregnant stage!
