So, I'm 14 weeks tomorrow. I've been a little paranoid lately, especially yesterday, when I felt distinctly "un-pregnant". Kris says I will have plenty of days later when I will feel plenty pregnant, but it's disconcerting to feel un-pregnant, and your reflection in the mirror all of a sudden has a smaller bump. (it's like something has deflated...) I also had very minor, dull ache in my right kidney area this morning when I woke up, so I've been trying to drink plenty of water. I secretly wanted to call the doctor today because of it (darn the pain, it went away), thinking maybe if I went in today I would be able to hear the heartbeat of Baby V. But I resisted the urge. Now I have about a week of waiting till I can be sure that the baby is okay.
I got this survey from one of the Bumpies, and I thought it would be kinda fun to keep track. What will I think looking back at this time 5 years from now? :)
How far along? 14 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Not sure, I think I'm up 1 lb... But I will find out for sure next Thursday at the OB appointment.
Maternity clothes? Nope, not yet! All pants still fit, although my skinny jeans makes me feel like I'm squashing the little one.
Stretch marks? None that's new.
Sleep: Not so good. I have crazy dreams ALL night, plus I have to pee once or twice every night.
Best moment this week: Finding out my brother's VISA documents (I-20) are complete. After many hours of worry and frustration with the university.
Movement: Not yet. But I do lay still sometimes in hopes of feeling something. But I think it's a tad bit too early yet. :)
Food cravings: Not really. Maybe a little more of a sweet tooth than usual.
Gender: I have a inkling that it's a girl... But I really don't know or care! As long as Baby V is healthy...
Labor Signs: None.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: Being able to skip breakfast and lasting till lunch. It is impossible these days. The baby (or my body...) DEMANDS food when I wake up, before I start really moving around.
What I am looking forward to: The OB appointment next Thursday. I feel like I've waited an eternity and a half already for it.
Weekly Wisdom: Apparently, even when the tomato plants looked good right after the freeze, if the leaves shrivel up and turn black/brown like it's dry, it froze anyway. Get new ones.
Milestones: Feeling distinctly pregnant earlier this week. (definitely more frequent bathroom breaks!) Too bad I don't feel distinctly pregnant at this moment.
