Pregnancy Highlights { 14 weeks

Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 14 weeks!
Size of baby: 3.5 inches -- about the size of a lemon!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I gained 1 pound then I lost 4 (thank you morning sickness!) but I need to weigh myself at the same time each day. I prefer mornings :)
Maternity Clothes: Maternity jeans for sure. I bought some regular dresses that I'll be able to wear throughout the pregnancy (I hope!) but I do not need maternity tops right now. Hoping to keep tops/dresses in regular sizes as long as I can!
Gender: We'll find out in 6 weeks :)
Movement: Nothing yet!
Sleep: I'm finally feeling like I don't NEED 10 hours of sleep at night!
What I miss: Running! Recently running has made me really dizzy so I stay away from it-- I'm hoping to try again this week.
Cravings: I've had 2 so far, and they weren't healthy ones! Long John Silver's Chicken Planks & Little Ceasars Italian Cheese Bread :)
Symptoms: Morning sickness is my only symptom right now-- and it is still going on.. I had 2 good days this week (13 weeks) with NO sickness so I hope it's tapering off!

10-12 Weeks

The past few weeks have gone by really quickly!

Confessions { Part 1

I see many posts like this in my future.. today's topic is: Confessions of a pregnant 1st time mom.

Last week I ordered a fetal dopler so I could hear little love's heartbeat at home anytime I wanted. It arrived yesterday and I was so excited to test it out so I ran out to my car (I was at work) and was surprised at how easy it was to find the heart beat. I even called my mom to listen in! When I got off work I stopped by my MIL so she too could hear the heartbeat..once again I picked it up very quickly! Then I got home and had to call Dad, Grandma & little sister so they could hear it too.

As it turns out.. I was picking up my OWN heartbeat-- I only figured this out when I was playing around with it and heard the same sound on the OTHER side. Oops :) :) I finally located the baby's heart beat but it didn't stay for long and I couldn't locate it again. I was able to pick it up better this morning after about 5 minutes of trying.
