Baby can now squint, frown, pee, and possibly suck his/her thumb! Baby's kidneys are producing urine which he/she releases into the amniotic fluid around him/her. By the end of the 14th week, baby's arms will have grown to a size which is in proportion with his/her body. The legs are still lengthening. He or she is developing a peach fuzz all over their body too!
Baby measures 3.5 inches long and weighs 1.5 oz. He or she is the size of a large

I think I've gained 2 or 3 lbs mayyybe? It depends on what time of day I weigh myself. (Haha aint that always the case?) I go to the midwife on the 8th so I'll get an official weight then.
Well...I'm that in-between phase where a lot of my regular clothes don't fit around my waist but maternity clothes are too big. Plus, what maternity clothes I do have are all winter items so I need to go shopping...DARN. ;)
I might be able to pull off some regular shirts for a little longer but my "be super trendy and tuck your shirt into your bottoms" days are over for awhile it looks like!
My sleep is mostly good! I have had a few nights here and there where I had a lot of trouble getting to sleep. I was wide awake! Thankfully I had some articles saved on my phone to read and a I fell asleep a little bit later. It wasn't too bad. I am also getting uncomfortable sleeping on my back lately. It makes my stomach feel empty and therefore hungry...and this girl doesn't need full access to the cabinets late at night.
(My husband then next day: "Where are all the Oreos??"
So I sleep on my stomach or sides most of the time. So farewell, back sleeping. I'll see you in December, old friend...
Best Moment From Weeks 13 + 14
It's the little things...
First, I showed Charlotte my belly and tried to have this sweet moment with her where I would point to my belly and say, "Baby brother or sister! Give baby a kissy!" And in this magical scenario Charlotte would kiss my belly and it would be just adorable. What actually happened? She stuck her finger in my belly button and laughed hysterically. Hahaha then so did I... She's so silly and I love it.
I also love it when Tom kisses my belly. I know it's really hard for guys to become emotionally attached to the baby until he first feels baby kick or even until birth so I think it's really cute that he already loves our baby so much. I sure do! It's amazing how much more you love your spouse when they are loving your children. It's absolutely incredible. Love you, Tom!
None yet! Like I said last week, I didn't feel Charlotte until 16 weeks so I probably have a few weeks to go. I can't wait! That's my favorite part of pregnancy.
Same as last week - fast food! I'm a frequent customer at Chipotle and Chic-Fil-A. Well...frequent to me anyway since I normally don't eat out a ton. I still can't believe I'm not 800 lbs though...
All the same stuff. Avocados, things that are extra sugary (including coffee sadly...), and weirdly now cilantro. Noooo! Not my beloved cilantro! I think it tastes like how stink bugs smell. Weird? Yes. I blame baby. ;) I usually love it on everything.
I still think it's a boy. Tom wants a boy so badly that he thinks it's a girl. Haha he's trying reverse psychology on my womb...not sure it's going to work! But of course he would be so happy with a girl. He's in love with Charlotte and he'd be the best daddy to two daughters!
- I still can't brush my teeth or put anything in my mouth besides food without gagging. Charlotte is constantly wanting to stick her spoon or fork or toys in my mouth and I gag every time. Actually, now that I think about it, food does make me gag sometimes - but after I'm done eating. This happened when I was pregnant with Charlotte too but I get junk in my throat after every meal and then I have to cough to get it out. But then, it makes me gag. That's gross. Sorry that you had to read it...lol.
- I'm still getting hot flashes galore! Oh it is so much fun when it's 85 degrees outside and I have a hot flash too ;)
- My lower back is also hurting and causing me a lot of trouble. It's getting worse and worse lately. It's my sciatic nerve on the lower left side. The same thing happened with my pregnancy with Charlotte so I went to the chiropractor like twice a week for a long, long time and absolutely nothing helped. Haha I think I killed the doctor's confidence in his work because every time he'd ask me if I felt better and I'd say no. His face was always one of, "Are you kidding me? I must suck then." Hehe he was really good but...I think my back is too far gone during pregnancy. lol.
Happy or Moody?
I think I've been pretty happy! Other than the aches and pains and not being too happy about those I feel pretty good! My energy is coming back and the sickness if dying down finally! I feel so much better :)
My Midwife Says...
Well I haven't seen my midwife since the last pregnancy update so click HERE to see my 12 week pregnancy update and see what she had to say then!
Well that wraps it up for my 14 weeks pregnancy update!
I'm so happy to finally be caught up with my updates now that I'm feeling so much better.
Definitely let me know if you're pregnant too and if you're feeling the same things I am!
Have a wonderful day!
