14 Weeks

How far along? 14 Weeks 2 Days

Total weight gain/loss: +1-3lbs (I've been jumping between that for awhile)

Maternity clothes? I've been wearing maternity jeans/capris regularly

Stretch marks? Same.

Sleep: I had a rough couple of nights with only a few hours of sleep. I realized taking a 2 hour nap with Olivia everyday was hindering my night sleep. Skipped the nap, slept better. Problem solved.

Best moment this week: Nothing too memorable.

Movement: Still not definite.

Food cravings: tomatoes and cucumbers in Italian dressing

Gender: Unknown - I have a feeling its a boy though.

Labor Signs: No

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: I think my days of sleeping on my belly are numbered. :(

What I am looking forward to: Scheduling my BIG ultrasound *even though we're not finding out the gender, I still haven't seen my little one yet!*

I guess what they say has some truth to it. You start showing faster with your 2nd. I swear I look like I did when I was around 18-20 weeks with Olivia. Here is my 14 week picture. I took it in the afternoon.
I swear I've gotten bigger since then. Who knows. Maybe it's just all the poo I'm not expelling. :P I think I'm carrying the same way as well. Its all in my torso. Although the pregnancies have been completely different. Guess we'll just have to wait and see if Olivia is getting a brother or sister. Either way, she's going to be a great big sister.

We took Olivia to a play at this place in Warrendale. They've got things like a moon bounce *which she will not get in*, a kitchen set, a big huge thing with climbing things, slides, etc. We love it there and for only $4, its a good way to let her expell some energy. She was playing with an older little girl today. She was helping her set the table with a tea party set. It was so cute to watch. Olivia would bring her plates and cups and then the older girl would set them up. Then this terror of a little boy probably a year older than OK, came and threw everything off the table. What a BRAT! If that was MY kid, I would have taken her home. Ugh.

C'est la vie 1st Trimester

How far along? 13 weeks 1 day

Total weight gain/loss: +2lbs

Maternity clothes? Not really

Stretch marks? Same.

Sleep: Getting better, but I'm still pretty tired.

Best moment this week: Hearing the baby's HR on the Doppler

Movement: I don't think so, but I have felt a couple of pops pretty low.

Food cravings: fruit, salad

Gender: Unknown

Labor Signs: No

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: Having a semi-flat belly

What I am looking forward to: feeling like myself soon

This past week I had my monthly check up at the OB. I had an early appointment, but there was some sort of emergency in the office, so I waited an hour to go back. She checked my weight, and by their scales I'm up 3lbs, but since I check my weight on the same scale, I'm going by my 2lb gain. She got the Doppler out and it took about 5 seconds to find. It was really low, but it was there. 152 bpm. Music to my ears. :) Everything else is going very well. She did mention that my blood work up didn't include an HIV test. I didn't decline it, but I guess there was some sort of mix up on the script. So, I have to go get that done. Next appointment is August 11th, and we'll be able to schedule the Level II ultrasound!

This past weekend we went up to my dad's camp. Its about an hour and 45 minutes away. Its a drive, but its really nice up there. It's right on the Ohio river. My dad and his girlfriend have boats, so we took Olivia on her 1st boat ride. She looked so cute in her little life jacket.


Russ wanted to take her out on the tube. I was a little hesitant, because I'm a mummy. She's just so little to me, but I know she was in good hands. She seemed to be really enjoying it because she looked like she was falling asleep.


That was about 1 minute before a big quake came from behind and knocked them off. It was a very scary moment for me. Russ had her the entire time though and her head never went underwater. Guess that's the reason for life vests. But, it scared her and she was screaming. My dad pulled her back on the boat and I wrapped her up in a towel. After about a minute, she stopped crying and was back to walking around and enjoying the boat ride. It's going to be a LONG time before I let her on a tube again. Talk about having a mini heart attack.


She liked "driving" the boat. :)

That was our week. I'm glad to be on the way out of the 1st trimester. I'm hoping that I'll be feeling more like myself soon. The morning sickness isn't bad anymore. I still get sick sometimes at the end of the day or if I don't eat for a long time. I'm still pretty tired. I require a nap when Olivia goes down at noon. So I feel like I don't get anything done anymore. Those 2 hours I usually clean and get things done around here. Oh well, soon enough. :)

12 Weeks and a lotta Poo

Completely skipped 11 weeks. Opps. Oh well, here is week 12 update:

How far along? 12 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: +3lbs as of this morning

Maternity clothes? Not really

Stretch marks? Same.

Sleep: Horrible. I.need.sleep.

Best moment this week: Feeling like a human again, mostly.

Movement: Nope.

Food cravings: chips, fruit, water

Gender: I took the Intelligender test @ 10 weeks 4 days *see below*

Labor Signs: No

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: Sleeping good and not having any bum cramps.

What I am looking forward to: Doctors appointment on Monday

Last week was a loooooong week. I was completely booked up at work, so I did 12 massage in 3 days (5 hour day). I was pooped after 3 days of that. Then Russ was on daylight for 4 days (12 hour shifts). Olivia got sick with some sort of stomach bug and she was having runny diapers every 1-2 hours ALL DAY LONG. She was miserable because her bum was so red and chaffed because of all the wiping PLUS she cut her top 2 canine teeth. Then, Russ comes home on Saturday with the same thing Olivia had. It was not a happy house. Thankfully, everyone seems to be on the mend now. I'm feeling better as well. I can actually eat and not be sick. I still feel the m/s come on during the evening hours, but I'd rather have it then than during the day.

Anyways, here are the results from the Intelligender test. I KNOW it's a 50/50 shot, but since we're not finding out this time, I thought it would be fun. Plus, I had some extra money from working so hard. :)

Here is my 12 week belly picture:
