14 Weeks

What's Happening with Peanut?

  • Peanut can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb!
  • From head to bottom, he/she measures 3 1/2 inches and weighs 1 1/2 ounces.
  • By the end of this week, his/her arms will have grown to a length that's in proportion to the rest of his/her body. (His legs still have some lengthening to do.)
  • Though I can't feel the tiny punches and kicks yet, our little pugilist's hands and feet (which now measure about 1/2 inch long) are more flexible and active.

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 7 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? I have finally purchased a few maternity tops because my regular tops were becoming to tight on the emerging bump. I can still wear normal pants/skirts/etc.
  • Sleep: I am sleeping thru the night 95% of the time. On those nights that I drink more tha a few sips before bed, I am up a least 4 times answering nature's call.
  • Best moment this week: Spending lots of time with M thanks to the 3-day weekend. We were able to dream/plan about the upcoming weeks.
  • Food cravings: Hibachi vegetables and Little Debbie Oatmeal Pies
  • Belly button in or out? In.
  • What I miss: Nothing. This is the first week that I feel like my "pre-pregnancy" self.
  • What I am looking forward to: Taking Peanut to his/her first Georgia Tech football game on Thursday.

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • Daddy has been busy working on the State Patrol should be completed by next Tuesday.
  • In his few spare moments, Daddy has had his nose stuck in his "CIA/Spy/Mystery" book - which Mama think is so cute.

I am sure you've seen it already, but have you made your way to the Academichic blog yet? E., one of the bloggers, recently posted a great collection of her favorite maternity looks/tips/resources.
