14 Weeks!

So I know this is late, but better late than never!  At least the picture was taken earlier than I am finding time to write the post...



How far along: 14 weeks, 4 days (in the picture anyways)

Baby is the size of: a yummy cupcake! ...although, I haven't had much of an appetite for sweets lately. 

Total weight gain/loss: no idea, but given the fact that I have popped - I am going to say that I have probably gained some weight, but it seems like it's all baby.

Symptoms: Nothing that is like "oooh that's the pregnancy" this week... but I have been REALLY thirsty.  I don't know what that is about though.
 

Food Cravings: This past week I haven't had any obvious cravings which is nice.

What I miss: this past week, nothing. I was quite content being 14 weeks pregnant.  I might be starting to really enjoy this pregnancy thing.

What I am looking forward to: FINDING OUT THE GENDER! I am dying to call this little nugget by a real name... Brandon and I have yet to decide if we are going to announce the names or just keep them between us.

Gender Predictions:  I honestly, really and truly, think boy... but I am holding out on the possibility that maybe, just maybe, little Dub is a girl.  This week I want a girl... mostly because I was on babyfans.com and found this adorable little sundress.  SERIOUSLY?! How adorable is that?! However, I know that I will be happy either way :)
Seriously? How could I NOT want a girl?!
Maternity Clothes: yep :) mostly because I have a bunch of maternity sundresses and it's been really nice outside so I have been able to wear them, but not because I need to be wearing them.

Wedding Rings: Still on and some days looser than others... gotta watch the sodium intake! 

Movement: Nope, but we're getting close!  I am told I should start feeling some movement in the next 3-4 weeks.  CRAZY! 

Best Moment of the Last Week: I had someone ask me when the baby was due :) so clearly the weight gain is in the right places and I look pregnant, NOT PUDGEY! YAY!!  ALSO! We found our maternity/newborn photographer and I am over the moon excited about it. It took me some time to find one that I like, but I did it and she is fabulous!  Stacey Gillin is located in Gettysburg which is awesome and it means Brandon and I will be doing our maternity pictures in Gettysburg... I am totally going to see if I can turn this into an overnight at a bed and breakfast :) You can check out Stacey Gillin's work here.
