a (late) 14-week bumpdate! (14w2d)

How Far Along: 14 weeks - SECOND TRIMESTER!!

Baby is the size of: a lemon

Best Moments This Week: There have been a few moments the last few days where there's flutters (not followed by any gas!) that I'm thinking are baby!!!

Total Weight Gain: At about 4 lbs gained so far... which at first scared me, I thought I was gaining quickly - but I'm on track with how I gained with Button (and considering I started 3-4 lbs lighter pre-pregnancy than with Button, not too bad!)

Maternity Clothes: So I'm actually back and forth on this one... I wore a regular pair of skinny jeans last week, with the zipper and button totally undone, rocking the hair-tie!  I also wore my maternity (full-paneled) turquoise skinny jeans last week, and they were amazing. lol

Symptoms: feeling kind of human again, regarding fatigue and empty stomach syndrome!

Sleep: I feel like I could always use more, but I've noticed the past week the nighttime pee sessions have ceased! uterus is moving on up!

Food Cravings: I think I've pinpointed an actual craving - but it's still not strong enough to run out the house at midnight - vanilla softserve (or fro-yo) with crumbled oreos.  LOTS of crumbled oreos - Baskin Robbins does NOT give you enough, and a mini-mcflurry barely does the job...

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Not really...

Movement: See "Best moments" - it's gonna come for sure any day now!

Stretch Marks: Just ones I had on my hips from highschool... lol

Gender Prediction: I have my prediction, the tech has hers as well - trying to keep it all mum as it's only a predicion!! =P

Labour Signs: Too early.

Belly Button In or Out?: In (never turned out last time either)

Wedding Rings on or off?: On

Happy or Moody?: so the horrendous mood swings have been getting better - until I walk into work this morning and feel roaring to go, ready to fight with anyone who even steps in my path! oiy...

Purchases for baby: still none yet... though I've started making the sweater!!!

Purchases for Momma: I got a whole bunch of used maternity sweaters & fall/winter shirts from ebay and Motherhoodcloset.com - an online consignment store for maternity-wear!!! (I also bought a second pair of jeans from OldNavy - the first (and only) pair I have are bootcut, so I got skinny - I ordered my regular pre-pregnancy size, and I'm not sure they'll fit this fall lol I might have to exchange for the next size up... oiy!)

Miss Anything?: I told a friend, I think it's harder to be pregnant (at the beginning of a pregnancy, vs at the end like with Button) during summer - I'd love a hard iced tea or frozen anything while sitting in the sun...

Looking forward to: finding out for sure if baby will be made of Snips&Snails or Sugar&Spice!! (found that phrase on a blog article, must find a way to use it when we announce the gender!!)

at 14w1d (and of course, at work)
((I only unbuttoned my jeans for the picture to show true bump, and not waist-band bump lol))


  1. You are SO adorable!!!!! Congrats on making it to the 2nd tri. I hope those flutters are the real deal!

  2. Cute! Congrats on second tri!

  3. !!!!!!!! Time is flying!! We just got Mcflurries yesterday and complained that they skimped down the sizes now... not nearly as big as they used to be!!! You look great!
