Pregnancy Update: 14 Weeks

Saturday, November 22, 2014
First and foremost, we want to thank you all for the out pour of love and good wishes as we enter our second round of pregnancy! We have family and friends all over the country (and world for that matter), so we are going to use this blog to try to keep everyone up to date with our antics during this next chapter of our lives. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I am starting to track my ever growing bump on a weekly basis. Also, I love hearing the fun details of other women's pregnancies so this will allow me to share all of the nitty gritty with those of you who are interested.

How far along? 14 weeks
Total weight gain: 1 lonely pound
I'm living in: Right now I'm starting the stage where my bump can easily be mistaken for a big lunch at Chipotle. I can still button my jeans but the comfort level is being pushed to it's limit with each day. My most comfortable pair of jeans that I find myself turning to are one pair of Joe's skinnies. I found that all of the stretch is really working with the changes my body is going through and the dark wash is consistently flattering. On other days when I'm feeling less ambitious, I typically turn to Lululemon crops.
Bellybutton in or out? In for now
Sleep: Sleeping great. I'd say from 7 weeks up until 12 weeks we got into the routine of putting Parker down for bed around 730-745. You could bet that I wouldn't be too far behind. This week I am starting to get my energy back (I'm actually blogging while Parker naps instead of following suit), which means I get to dedicate a lot more time to Matt and socializing with friends.
Food urges: Smoothies and french fries with honey mustard
Food aversions: Turkey - this is especially surprising to me because we live off of turkey burgers and ground turkey dishes.
I really miss: (I'm trying to figure out how to word this without sounding like a lush...) but mocktails just aren't cutting it. I went out the other night with a group of my girlfriends for dinner and the bartender attempted to turn my beloved cocktail into a non-alcoholic version with all of the flavor. It was delicious, but I was definitely missing that zing.
Movement: Any sensation I feel in my stomach, I automatically think is the baby kicking so this subject is debatable.
Gender prediction: In the first months I thought boy, but just recently switched my guess over to girl.
Exercise: For the first 7 weeks I kept up with my exercise regimen, but totally fell off the wagon once morning sickness rolled in and set up shop until 12ish weeks. Now that I feel like my old self (and once Matt's work travel slows down), I am ready for some 5:00 am gym time.
Best moment this week? Making the big announcement to the world! I can't stress enough how much every word meant to us! It makes us even more excited for this pregnancy (which we didn't think was possible) and I'm excited to see what's to come in the next few months.
Looking forward to: If you've spent any time with me the past two weeks, you will know how much I'm looking forward to the holidays this year. It snowed the other day and I almost did a back flip into my hot cocoa. I am just so excited to be surrounded my friends and family and watch Parker soak up the fun of the holidays.
