14 weeks

After a roller coaster first trimester, the last 2 weeks have absolutely flown by!


How many weeks pregnant? 14 weeks and 4 days

Days until Due Date? Just over 25 weeks

Baby is the size of a… Lemon!

Best moment this week? Today is my fourth day in a row without needing nausea medication! I’ve still been sick and throwing up occasionally, but I haven’t needed the meds and I’m feeling heaps better!

Pregnancy Symptoms? Apart from the nausea, I’ve started getting reflux and heartburn. Today I sneezed and felt an intense pain in my pelvis. Dr google tells me it’s probably round ligament pain – a pretty normal thing!

Cravings? Milo! I haven’t had the stuff in years! Also lollies, particularly redskins. And marmalade on toast.

Food aversions? Meat. Can’t cook it or smell it or watch it on TV without gagging. I haven’t really touched it for 2 months! Though I did manage to eat a chicken and salad roll for lunch on Thursday and I was on a protein high for the rest of the day! I’m sure I’ll be able to eat it again soon enough.

Maternity clothes? Not yet. It doesn’t look like it, but I do have a slight bump! Fortunately most of my existing wardrobe is stretchy and accommodating. I will need to pick up a few basics within the next few weeks though.

Any nesting going on? Nope. Just planning for the nesting stage – I can’t wait! I’ve spent the best part of the last 2 months on the couch. My energy has picked up this week, so I have been catching up on work and housework. We need to have a big clean out and I’m planning on having a garage sale after footy season.

What am I looking forward to this week? I am finally going back to full time hours (my bank account will thank me!) but I am travelling for work. I am worried about being sick while being away, but I know I have my precious tablets if I need them!
