14 Weeks Pregnant!

I can't remember if I said it before, but this pregnancy is going so fast!  In less than 6 weeks time I will be halfway!

I am now starting to feel a lot livelier than I have in recent weeks and I don't feel like crashing 2 or 3 times a day (not that I would have the chance to anyway!).  I have felt the baby move a few times and it's lovely.  I felt movement early with Ollie too.  Apart from the movement and my growing bump there is nothing else to make me feel pregnant.  Boob pain has gone, nausea and sickness is gone and I have my energy back.  I feel almost normal!

The baby is now about 8cm long and is beginning to get eyebrows and hair!  The baby can now make facial expressions and it can grasp, squint, frown and grimace.  Although the baby is still small, it has fingerprints already.

Oh! We bought the pram!  It's very very cool.  In the end I decided to get the Mamas and Papas Zoom.  It comes with a carrycot to so can be a pram and a stoller, both forward and rear facing.

How far along? 14 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: -5lbs.
Sleep: Sleeping a little easier than in previous weeks!
Food cravings: Watermelon, cherries, fruit juice, feta cheese, caesar salad!
Best moment this week: Feeling the baby move when I wake up most mornings.
Movement: ^^^ As above!
Gender:  I can't wait to find out!  We have our gender scan booked and it is less than 4 weeks away!
Stretchies: None yet.
Belly Button in or out? Almost out!
What I miss: Iced coffee, brie, goats cheese.
What I am looking forward to: My bump getting bigger!  Love it!  Also looking forward to feeling PROPER kicks.
Symptoms: None!
Milestones: Second trimester whoop!!!
Weekly wisdom:  I have none!
Emotions: Excited!


  1. WOW Emma, you are so organised. I haven't bought anything like pram or anything aprt from a baby onsie. I am still taking it slow until end of august. Keep up the great work :).

  2. I love the pic of Ollie kissing your belly!

  3. Can't wait to find out the gender of your baby too

  4. great pics and congrats! You're right about how fast it goes. I'll be 19 weeks Saturday. It's so hard to believe that in a few months I'll be holding my son in my arms. His big sister is super excited too.
