14 Weeks! (05/6/11)

Today I'm 14 weeks, officially out of the 1st trimester! Where has the time gone? As you can see the baby is roughly the size of a lemon. The baby is about 3.4" tall and weighs 1.5 oz. Baby is getting there!

Your adorable little fetus is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine, and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys, and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over her body for warmth.

I added a belly shot to the "Bump Photos" section. There's a bump there but I'm not sure if it's still bloat, chub or baby. It might be a mix of everything. I haven't been eating the healthiest lately. I've been eating what ever sounds good at the time. Speaking of that - if I don't throw up today that would make it 3 days in a row! That's huge for me! Considering I use to throw up every single morning and feel nauseous when I crawl into bed for the night. Lets hope that means that the ever-so-wonderful pregnancy symptom is on its way out. I've still had those nauseous spells through out the day but they usually quickly pass.

Overall I've been feeling a little better. My energy is coming back. Not like jump out of bed and run a marathon but I can actually do a few small simple tasks when I get out of work (put the laundry away, make the bed, clean up a bit, etc). I actually went to bed lastnight at 8:30 because all this week I've been going to bed at 11:00 and waking up so dead tired because I have to get up at 5:30... that's only 6.5 hours of sleep. I feel nice and refreshed this morning!

Well, I doubt I'll be back on before Mother's Day. I want to wish all of my Mommies and Mommy-to-bes a very happy Mother's Day! A special shout out to my Mom. She's the greatest Mom a girl could ever have. She's worked her ass off to support my brother and I, wiped every tear, comforted us when we needed it, protected us (a bit overprotective but now I totally understand why), taught us to respect our elders, always say please and thank you and most of all just to be ourselves. I love you more than words can say, Mom!
