Bump Update: 14 Weeks



We found out this week that IT'S A BOY!!!  I had the Harmony Blood Test done.  We have typically declined the genetic testing because we've heard so many horrible stories of false positives; The Harmony test is 92-99% accurate AND it provides the boy/girl chromosomes. We decided to go with it. So YAY! We're having a boy!!!!

How far along? 14 weeks 2 days

How big is baby? At week 14, your baby is 3.4 inches and 1.5 ounces, has almost doubled in weight since last week and keeps on growing.

Total weight gain? about 5 lbs. (down from 2 weeks ago)

Maternity clothes? Yes. I am so glad I bought two new pairs of maternity jeans. My other pairs are a size big AND stretched out. They looked silly.

Stretch marks? Nothing new this pregnancy

Belly button? Flattening out

Exercise I haven't been able to work out the last two weeks because I was having some issues with my hips and low back. Hoping to start back on Saturday.

Sleep 4am is not my friend. I usually wake up starving. I keep a banana on my night stand for when I wake up and need to eat something.

Movement I feel tiny little bumps or kicks here and there, usually after I eat something

Food cravings I was craving ooy-gooy carbs, but one of the doctors I see suggested upping my healthy fat intake and that has helped. Who can say no to extra butter?

Food aversions - as long as I don't let my get self hungry to the point of nauseous, I am fine.  The only thing I have struggled to eat is chicken after I have been smelling it cook.

What I miss - Sleeping through the night. But what's new?

What I am looking forward to - I've been super excited to add some boy prints to our cloth diaper collection. 

Milestones - Starting to decidedly "show" and not just look thick in the middle 

Say What? - "Third baby, you're officially a Catholic family"   Funny, yes, but I feel like this is really offensive to some people. 

Sweet moments - "Oh mama, baby brother must be growing, you belly is much bigger today" ~ Evie

Make room for baby - Still working on plans for the bunk bed. Eric's been laboring over the design and pricing the supplies. Also excited to have so many nephews to borrow clothes from!

Oh, and THIS:  Slowly passing from the extreme exhaustion phase to the EAT ALL THE THINGS phase.
