14 Weeks and Growing

IMG_20150617_223343

Baby surro boy is growing right along! I definitely feel like the belly “popped” over the past week. For the most part I am enjoying more energy. But because I’ve been excited about the increased energy I’ve overdone it a few days in a row which means I’m a couch potato today. Lots of random cravings lately, including the midnight exclamation of “we need to buy trail mix!”. Thankfully for the most part my cravings are pretty healthy. The only thing that I can’t have that I’ve been dying for is sushi. Oh well, I’ll feast on sushi in December!

  • He’s probably sucking his thumb and wiggling his toes in there!
  • His kidneys are making urine, and his liver and spleen are doing their jobs, too.
  • And he’s growing lanugo, a thin, peach-fuzz-like hair, all over his body — it will help him keep warm!

At week 14, baby is 3.4 inches and 1.5 ounces, he’s almost doubled in weight since last week and keeps on growing.

Hungry much? Now that you’re not feeling so queasy, you’re probably enjoying eating. A lot. Plus, you’re fueling baby’s growth — which is happening at super speed at 14 weeks. Be sure to keep plenty of healthy snacks by your side just in case you get the munchies. It’s important — for you and for baby — that you don’t indulge in too many greasy, fatty foods, so you’re both getting the right nutrients. (Of course, the occasional bowl of ice cream is totally okay.) And we just wanted to remind you: eating for two doesn’t mean doubling your calorie intake. Not only have you gotten your appetite back at week 14, but you’ve probably also gotten some of your energy back, too. If you found yourself shying away from exercise during trimester one, it’s time to get back on track. Go take a walk!

Pregnancy Symptoms at 14 Weeks

  • As you emerge from the nasties of the first trimester, you’re probably getting your energy back.
  • You’re probably feeling some aches and pains, as your muscles and ligaments stretch to accomodate your growing baby.
  • Hungry! Once the queasies of the first trimester subside, you might find your appetite on overdrive.
  • You might notice your hair getting thicker and shinier, one of the (few) attractive side-effects of pregnancy.
