How Far Along? 14 weeks
Maternity Clothes? Still in the same old stuff. Mostly Lululemons since I'm not working much these days!
Stretch Marks? No.
Sleep? A lot. I've been going to bed by midnight and since I'm not working I have been sleeping in until 10 everyday! And then lounging in bed until 11 before tackling the day! Life of luxury (for this week atleast!)
Best Moment of the Week? Telling my best friends I am pregnant. They were genuinely happy me except I always sort of feel like my one friend is competing with me and now that I'm pregnant she is going to try super hard to get pregnant with #2 ASAP, just to beat me to it! I know its stupid but we always have had a hidden rivalry I think. But I know she is thrilled for me and I love her so its ok.
Movement? Can't wait for this to start!
Food Cravings? None. But I am not feeling satisfied after my usual breakfast of an orange and and english muffin with a TON of PB. I have been adding a yogurt to ease my hunger. Anyone else pregnant and finding they are hungrier? How/how much food do you add? I've read the 300 calories a day thing but I've also heard that even that is unnecessary? Opinions?
Gender? Hoping girl .... (in the "i'm hoping but will still totally love a boy" kind of way!)
What I miss? Stress free sex. Wiping without fear of the toilet paper inspection that follows everytime! Having to turn the bathroom light on for night time pee breaks (ie. to do the required self imposed toilet paper inspection!)
I am also having a hard time with the 'attention' I'm getting from the inlaws. My mother in law felt it necessary to tell EVERYONE she knows so when I was at a bridal shower on Sunday I felt on display and hated everyone staring at my boobs, telling me my boobs were huge and just the general pregnancy questions and advice makes me feel uncomfortable. I feel like a fraud so it just doesn't seem right.
What I'm looking forward to? Our vacation to South Beach Miami this summer! We rented a sweet condo on the beach for a week! If anyone has tips for what to see and do in SoBe let me know! And pregnancy wise, without getting too far ahead of myself I guess I am looking forward to my next OB appt on the 28th. Really I'm looking forward to my 20weeker so I can find out the sex!
Weekly Wisdom: When you least expect, people can surprise you! As I have mentioned before hubs is a MEGA TIGHT-ASS when it comes to money. He saves every penny or puts it on the mortgage. We need a new car and I was apprehensive about car shopping with him and even though I know I really want a sun roof, heated seats, leather interior and all of that jazz on our new car I didn't think he would go for it due to the extra cost! BUT....at our test drive on Saturday he agreed and totally wants the "sport" version of our vehicle of choice so that we can get all of the fun stuff I want! And he even wants to add a few extra goodies to that! Yippee! We are finalizing the details tonight and should get our new Radiant Silver Hyundai Santa Fe Sport next week! Woo hoo! It will be the first car either of us has ever bought! He has been given all of his cars by his dad and I have never had a car! Very exciting!
Milestones: Telling my besties and my boss at work.
Emotions: Stress ebbs and flows. I feel great most of the time (actually "great" means totally not even pregnant) but I get tons of nervous scares ALOT! I can't wait to feel more pregnant with a real belly and kicks and all of that fun stuff!
Hope you all have a great week! I'm off to the gym and then to get my brows waxed to continue my week of luxury!
