14 week pregnancy update!

I'm starting my first official pregnancy post! I looked back at my 14 week post for Parker's pregnancy and this pregnancy is exactly one month later. My due date for Parker was 10/3 and my due date for this little one is 11/2.



This ultrasound was actually done at 12 weeks, but had to show off our new little one to be.

How far along: 14 weeks. Yay, for the second trimester!

Baby's Size: Should be around 3.5 inches. Baby was measuring 2.27 inches at my 12 week ultrasound.

Weight gain: Nope! At my 12 week appointment I had lost 5 lbs.

Maternity clothes?: I haven't had the need to wear any maternity clothing yet. I did buy a couple cute shirts and some maternity shorts.

Sleep: My sleep has been pretty good. Other than my little guy cutting molars and waking up in the night, I feel pretty rested.

Movement: Nothing yet, though I can feel my uterus and have been able to for a couple weeks now.

Food Cravings: Honestly, it's been salads

Symptoms:  My heartburn is through the roof with this pregnancy. I can't eat anything without getting heartburn. Even water gives me heartburn. My nausea has finally started to subside, but I still find myself having a hard time eating because of the heartburn.

Labor Signs: Nothing to report and hope to not start contractions quite so early this time around.

Best Moment this Week: I took my first belly photo this week. I actually think I look smaller this time around, but it's hard to really tell since I'm not wearing the same outfit. I can also hear the baby's heartbeat on our home Doppler. The first time I was able to hear it was around 12 weeks.

What I am looking forward to: Next Friday I have my anatomy scan scheduled at which point I will be also having an amniocentesis. I'm so terrified of the amniocentesis, but I can't wait for the scan. We will probably have a good idea of the gender at that point.

I chose to have the amniocentesis because when I went for my nuchal scan, the baby's nuchal measurement was above the normal range. That combined with my bloodwork results we were given some scary scenario's. The outcome of the amnio won't change my pregnancy, but I feel that if there is something wrong with the baby I would like to know everything I can before baby's arrival so we can be 100% prepared.
