14 weeks!

HERE is my 14 week update with Elliot.

How far along? 14 weeks 3 days... that is going off my old due date. At my ultrasound last week, the baby was measuring over a week ahead, so I could actually be 15 weeks. They aren't officially changing my due date until my next ultrasound, though, so for now I'll stick with the old one.
Baby’s Size: The size of a lemon, 3.4" and 1.5 oz.
Total Weight Gain: 3 pounds.
Bellybutton: innie.
Stretchmarks: no way!
Maternity Clothes: Nope, still wearing all of my regular clothes.
Gender: Although I'm still thinking it's a girl, at my ultrasound the tech very hesitantly guessed boy... but she said it was still too early to tell. So who knows.
Movement: I finally started feeling movement! I usually feel the little one moving while Elliot is getting a bottle (and cuddling my belly) and when I'm laying in bed.
Sleep: Elliot has been sleeping through the night reliably, which means I'm getting a full nights' sleep for the first time in over a year. It feels amazing.
Symptoms: I'm seriously feeling GREAT!
Food Aversions: Meat, mostly, and for some reason I couldn't eat the pudding that I made last night... and I LOVE pudding.
Food Cravings: French fries and dark chocolate!
Best Moments this week: Seeing the baby on the ultrasound, hearing that everything looks normal so far.
What I miss: Not missing a thing!
What I am Looking forward to: Finding out the gender on the 11th!!!!!!
Milestones: Well, Elliot, baby, and I went to our first Tastefully Simple party last night, and we will be hosting one next month.

14-15? weeks belly
sorry for the bad quality!


  1. Gosh you are so good at these pregnancy & photo updates!! I'm such a slacker! I have been craving french fries like crazy, too!! I need to cut back on my salt intake, though! whoops!

  2. You look great...and glad to read you are feeling that way too! So cute with your bump! Can't wait for you to find out boy or girl :)

  3. You look fantastic! I'm currently 9 weeks, so seeing where you're at makes me feel like I'm working toward something :)

  4. You make this pregnancy thing seem so fun and easy ;) I'm just so happy for you that Elliot is healthy and that this pregnancy seems to be going so smoothly! I started following your blog right after you found out that Elliot had gastroschisis, so I feel like I've been through all of it with you (ok not really, but you get what I mean).
    This makes me so excited to be pregnant again one day and compare it to my first pregnancy ;)

  5. looking beautiful as always! So happy you're feeling great and that Elliot is sleeping! A full night of sleep can change everything lol
