Weeks along: 14
Baby Size: Lemon (though, Isaiah said my stomach is the size of a watermelon. Thanks bud.)
Biggest Craving This Week: Blue Gatorade, watermelon, steak, and this sausage bake (which includes a lot of things that just taste so good to me right now - meat, sweet potatoes, potatoes and broccoli.)
Morning sickness: This week I started throwing up AFTER I ate my morning toast so I gave that up and have been doing so much better. Woop!
Other Symptoms: Headaches and tirrrrred and hungry. So hungry. Maci decided it was a good idea to wake me up in the middle of the night the other night to tell me she had a stuffy nose. After I she went back to bed, I couldn't sleep because I was so hungry. I got out of bed around 3 and ate goldfish in the pantry. So not ready for these midnight snacks. Also, my skin is breaking out all the time. Pregnancy really isn't my friend. It's a complete out of body experience for me. Nothing behaves the way it's supposed to - my skin, my body, my brain, nothing. Every pregnancy for me, the biggest thing they've all had in common is that I just don't feel like myself. Just being honest!
Currently Reading: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
Exercise: Still jogging a little and going to my weekly kickboxing class.
New This Week: I found out I'm low iron this pregnancy. I've never had low iron but I guess it explains my meaty cravings. I see my doctor on Wednesday - we'll see what she suggests.
14 Week Check-Up Update:
Heartbeat: 153 BPM
Weight Gain: 3 lbs.
20 Week Ultrasound: March 14th!!
Iron: It was flagged for low but it is not low enough to need an additional supplement. In fact, it was most likely low because I had my blood drawn when I could hardly eat anything, let alone take my pre-natal in the mornings.
