Week 14 Bump Update!

5 March 2012

I've decided to upload my bump posts on a Monday instead of a Thursday, to coincide with my pregnancy vlogs.  I actually change weeks on a Monday anyway but seeing as we took our first bump shot on a Thursday that was why I kept uploading them on different days.  I just think this way makes more sense and is less confusing, ha ha!  Hopefully you guys don't mind :)

How far along? 14 weeks
Total weight gain: 5lbs based on this morning's weight!  I know last week I said 6, this was based on what the scale said at the hospital when I went for my ultrasound.  One of the requirements is that you drink 1 litre of water before the scan, so that's probably why I weighed a little more then!  According to this nifty little site I discovered thanks to Regina, (SexyFitPregoMom on YouTube) I am right on track :)
Maternity clothes? As you can see from the pictures, I am still wearing and using my bump bands from Mothercare and I love them!  I haven't purchased anything else maternity wear since then but based on how my clothes are looking I will probably have to soon!  This morning was the first time I actually had difficulty picking out a top that didn't make me look like a marshmallow stuffed into cling-film...lol!
Stretch marks? Nope -- at the moment I am still using Mama Mio Tummy Rub oil each night after my shower.  
Sleep: I'm actually still sleeping really well, which is wonderful!  I also find that my left side is still my favourite position to sleep in. 
Best moment this week: I'm still going to put getting married legally in Ireland, because it only happened on Wednesday :)
Miss anything? No, not at all!
Movement: Not since that one time after the ultrasound! :(
Food cravings: Aside from the Ploughman's cheese sandwich incident, cravings haven't been too crazy!  I would still say my number one is oranges...I have been known to eat about 3 or 4 before bed!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still shrimp & prawns, bleugh!
Gender: I'm still thinking boy but of course we don't know for sure yet!  At 18 weeks we are going to get a 3D ultrasound to find out.  I can't wait! 
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: My boobs are still sore and my new bras are getting too small now, acne around my cheeks and jawline is still there but not as bad as before, some dry/flaky patches but again nothing like before, crazy/vivid dreams, it's also getting kind of uncomfortable whenever I bend over or need to reach down to get something - haha!
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Decorating the rest of the house, and buying our new rug for the bedroom (I've had it picked out for ages)!

Stay Stylish!
