Sweet Baby 14 Weeks

Posted by Courtney Lopez on

Sweet Baby is now the size of a Lemon!
I really should have posted this Friday, but to be honest I fell asleep.  I do that a lot lately  I still can’t believe that I’m pregnant.  It’s an absolutely amazing feeling knowing that I created something so beautiful with someone I love so very much.  Chris and I cannot wait to meet our little one!
We’ve been getting lots of questions by family and friends.  Here are just a few!

Are you going to find out baby’s gender?  Yes! We are so thrilled and cannot wait to see what our baby is going to be!  It’s still a surprise because I haven’t a clue if it’s a boy or girl.  We just can’t wait until July to find out so we’ll be finding out as soon as the doctor says so!
Do you have names picked out?  Not yet, we’re waiting to find out if it’s a boy or girl before we try and pick.
Did you guys want to get pregnant?  Yes, this is 100% expected.  Although many doctors said it can take 6 months to a year.  Our sweet baby was conceived right away.  We’re truly blessed.
What are you hoping for?  Of course everyone wants a specific gender.  Naturally women tend to want girls and the husband’s want boys.  I honestly am so blessed that I have this chance to be a mommy and I want exactly what this little one is.

I also thought it would be fun to do a little Q&A on how my pregnancy is progressing.  I will try to do this each week so I can share these memories with baby one day!

About our baby:  Baby is stretching out. From head to bottom, he or she measures 3 1/2 inches, about the size of a lemon and weighs 1 1/2 ounces.
About me: I definitely feel bloated, hoping this goes away soon.  Trying to avoid salt.
How far along? 14 Weeks 2 Days 
Total weight gain:
  I haven’t gained any weight yet, but haven’t lost anymore since losing 5lbs.
Maternity clothes? Not yet, very thankful for yoga pants!
Stretch marks? None yet, I know they’ll be coming!
Sleep: Sleeping is okay, getting up is the hard part.
Best moment this week:
The fact that I can withstand some protein now.
Worst moment this week:  When I made tacos and couldn’t bare eating them.  I ended up eating a hoagie roll loaded with vegetables and mozzarella.
Miss Anything? Brie and crackers.  Oh and a turkey sandwich with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado.  Not the same when the meat is heated.
Movement: We have a little more time to wait until we feel baby.
Food cravings: Watermelon and Grapefruit!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Chicken almost any way you cook it. Especially ground chicken.
Gender: We’re finding out in March!
Labor Signs: No.
Symptoms: Slightly nauseated still as well as tired all the time!
Belly Button in or out? Same, in.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Thankfully I’m pretty happy, I only get upset during movies.  I have never cried so easily during a movie.
Looking forward to: Next prenatal appointment.  We don’t get to see baby, but we do get to hear their heartbeat.
