{Pregnancy Update} 14 Weeks.

How Far Along: 14 weeks, 3 days.
Size of baby: as big as a naval orange, 4.5 inches long and weighing 2-3ounces
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 4 pounds
Maternity Clothes: maternity tops for the most part, non-maternity pants. My regular pants are starting to get a little more snug, but I still feel like I have room in them too. Probably only a few more weeks with them and then I'll switch over to my maternity bottoms. And of course, I live in sweats and t-shirts, so
Gender: we'll find out in 6 weeks!
Movement: not yet.
Sleep: This past week I had a few nights of really good, hard sleep. I was SO grateful! I also had my first few crazy pregnancy dreams. Nothing about the baby. One was that I was trying to go back to high school... at the age of 30. That would be awkward, to say the least!
Symptoms: I've had a few headaches this week. I've also had a lot of nausea, but I am starting to think that my nausea is more to do with some meds my doctor has me on rather than pregnancy related. I'm hoping that this week it will go away once I finish my prescription.
What I miss: sleeping on my tummy, and eating whatever I want (I have serious food aversions).
Cravings: Still craving Mexican food. Also have a liking for sausage biscuits from McDonald's, which is totally disgusting.
Food Aversions: it just depends on the day, and the smell.
Best Moment this week: Due to a few issues I had earlier this past week, the doctor had me come in for an ultrasound just to make sure everything was ok (and it was!). I loved seeing and hearing that little heartbeat. The sound will never grow old to me.
What I am looking forward to: Feeling the baby move, and finding out if we're having a girl or a boy.
