14 Weeks Pregnancy Update

Soooo glad it is Friday! The first full week back to work after vacation is rough and seems so
long. Ugh. Luckily this weekend will be pretty chill so I’m looking forward to that! Let’s get
right into the pregnancy deets.  I’m going to try my best to keep up with these weekly
updates….,..I’ll be writing my posts for the previous week. (I’m currently in week 15, but today
I’ll review week 14).  And here we go!
14Weeks

Here’s what is going on with the babies this week: (all info. taken from the Baby Center Website). 

  • The babies are about 3 1/2 inches, weigh 1 1/2 ounces and the size of Lemons. 
  • Their livers are starting to make bile and the spleen is helping to produce red blood cells.
  • The hands and feet are more active, but I can’t feel any tiny punches or kicks yet. 

Weight gained: About 5-6 pounds overall. I honestly haven’t cared to know my specific numbers. The doctor weighs me every time and hasn’t told me my weight gain is too much or too little, so no need for me to get caught up on numbers. As long as I’m healthy and my weight gain is appropriate for the babies, then I’m happy.

Workouts: I got in 4 this week, yay! I went to 2 Pop Physique classes and took Paisley on some short runs (slow 2-3 miles). I always feel better after excising, so I’m thankful I can still do it comfortably.

Symptoms: Still feeling hungry every few hours and get pretty tired at the end of the day, but overall feeling great- no morning sickness thankfully!!

Food Aversions: Nothing yet!

Food Cravings: Kind of depends on the day, but consistently cheeseburgers, milk, cheerios, and chocolate. Now I’m hungry thinking about all of these foods!

Sleep: Pretty good overall. I wake up consistently once a night to pee, but can usually fall asleep quickly. I started using my Bump Pillow and it is so comfortable…I’ll probably use it after the babies come.  My husband and dog agree!

Baby Stuff Purchased: Ugh nothing specifically for the babies and it’s killing me. I’m trying to wait until we know the genders, then I’ll go on a little shopping spree! I have purchased some baby books so far:

    Looking good, Momma! Isn’t it funny how much the guys enjoy our bump pillow as well? I can’t tell you how many time I’ve caught Joshua using it. Hahah!

    Cheerios have been delicious for me as well. Have you tried the Protein flavor ones yet? So good… especially mixed with Barbara’s Cinnamon Puffins!

    I just read your comment – Have you checked out H&M’s Maternity Line? It’s affordable & cute! I also like Jessica Simpson’s maternity jeans. I’ve found them to fit the best out of any I’ve tried.

      Haha totally- I feel like I should buy my husband a bump pillow.
      I’ll have to check out H&M and Jessica Simpson! So far, I’ve just been wearing more flowy (sp?) tops and started wearing my bella band with my pants. 🙂

    Congrats! I need to start working out, but I’ve been feeling so horrible. Maybe I can do some Zumba on the Xbox this week as I am feeling somewhat better now. I’ve recently started blogging about my baby on ComeWagAlong.com. I followed you so feel free to follow my blog back 🙂

    I just found your blog! Congrats 🙂 I am a twin mama and it’s amazing. You should really get the book “When You are Expecting Twins, Triples, or Quads” by Dr. Luke. It was my bible during pregnancy – it really explains how much different a multiples pregnancy than a singleton pregnancy and research based guidelines for weight gain, signs of preterm labor and when to get checked, etc. I am so thankful that I was recommended the book because my doctor didn’t push early weight gain, but I did it anyway and I truly believe that that’s why my twins did really well despite being born at 29 weeks. I look forward to following your updates!!!
