Sorry about the weird focus...self-timers can be hard with no remote!
And compared to 14 weeks with Lizzy:
How far along: 14 weeks. I missed a 13 week post last week because Lizzy and I both woke up with a cold/bad allergies on Thursday morning. I just wasn't in the mood to take a photo of myself :)
Size of baby: A lemon...about 3.5 inches long, and he or she just about doubled in size since last week!
Weight Gain: -10 pounds by my scale.
Symptoms: I had my first pregnancy migraine yesterday, which I successfully combated with caffeine...which is obviously not the normal recommendation for either treating migraines or for caffeine in pregnancy, but as my OB told me, it's one of the only available options at the moment, and an occasional increase in caffeine isn't going to be too bad. Other than that, I'm still just EXHAUSTED. And this is not pregnancy related, but I'm COVERED in bug bites, which obviously isn't very pleasant.
Overall though, I just can't get over how different this pregnancy is than my pregnancy with Lizzy. Some moms I know have told me that their pregnancies with boys were totally different than their pregnancies with girls and visa versa. It'll be interesting to see if that's the case, or if it's just different this time around.
Exercise: Ugh. No. I hate that I'm not exercising more. I *want* to be. But I'm so tired and so overwhelmed with trying to do basic cleaning and cooking, that it just hasn't happened recently, and I'm kind of irritated with myself about it!
Clothes: Still mostly regular stuff. I have a few maternity things that I've tossed into the mix, mostly just for variety than anything else.
Movement:Nope, but I'd LOVE it if I were feeling some before my 16 week appointment...that way I could feel more comfortable going without Justin since it's just a regular check-up (he came to every appointment last time around). But, I know that with likely having an anterior placenta again, that may be wishful thinking.
Worries: Today, I'm feeling pretty at peace, which is obviously not of my own doing. Thank you Lord.
Milestones: According to Baby Center: "Your baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb!" The Bump also adds that he or she is growing lanugo, the little peach-fuzz that keeps babies warm in utero.
