Pregnancy Update: 14 weeks

Week 14 has been very good to me. I have been eating better, feeling better and even went to the gym three times this week. All in all life is looking rosy. People have also told me that I’m looking much happier and have that ‘glow’. This makes me happy to hear even if I can’t see it myself!

The belly has become impossible to hide. I think I have officially popped and its always evident. I love it! Even my husband was commenting on it the other day. I love that the baby is getting bigger. Now I just can’t wait to feel movement. I’m getting so impatient! I keep putting my hand on my stomach and concentrating really hard. Like that will help *rolls eyes*. I know its a little early, but I keep trying. We’ll get there I just want to feel it!

The one thing that has been bringing me down though is headache. I had no idea I would be trading my morning sickness in for headaches! The only thing I can take is Panado (Tylenol for those in the US) and they do nothing for me. I was man down all day yesterday and have been left feeling drained and exhausted today. Any tips on fighting pregnancy headaches for me? I would really appreciate it!

How far along? 14 weeks

Baby is the size of a: Peach!

Total weight gain/measurements: Just over 59kg on Saturday. The weight gain has stabilised thank goodness and I think the exercise has helped. I put on so quickly in the beginning I was very worried. This looks and feels a lot more normal. I took measurements this morning and the bump is 82cm.

Maternity clothes: I’m wearing maternity pants for the first time today. They’re a tiny bit big but I’m sure I’ll grow into them 😉

Stretch marks: Nope

Best moment this week: Having some awesome girl time with one of my best friends. It was awesome spending time with her. Also I got a haircut. Which has been long overdue.

Miss anything? No I’m in a very happy place right now

Movement: Nothing yet. I’m hoping soon!

Food cravings: Still gummy sweets. In fact sweets in general which is very unlike me. I try like hell to fight these cravings, but every now and then I give in.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope 🙂

Gender: We think we know. Waiting for the next scan to confirm!

Symptoms: Pelvic pain, weird dreams, feeling heavy, headaches and congestion. Oh and getting out of breath easily.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!

Looking forward to:  Seeing my parents this weekend.

And here’s a bump shot!

The bump measures 82cm. And the there's Tango, my cat, saying hello.

    Good to hear you’re feeling so well apart from the headaches. Only suggestion is drink plenty of water but you’re probably doing that already. I know exactly what you mean about waiting for movements! … finally started for me around 18 weeks (although took a while to realise it wasn’t indigestion). So, probably not long for you to wait 🙂
