I promise .... I'm REALLY trying to get back into this blogging thing, but .... I just can't seem to remember how!?!
Well, it doesn't help that ..... you're never going to believe this ..... but I've been sick AGAIN. No strep throat this time, thank goodness -- just a regular ol' cold. But a NASTY cold.
I even got to spend my entire three-day weekend in BED!
Aaaaaah! My bedroom. How I've missed you.
But, another week brings another exciting update from babycenter.com, reminding me that my babe is another week older! Yahoo!!!
Apparently 14 weeks means I'm "officially" in my second trimester now.
I promised you a picture last time .... and I do have a bit of a bump now, so at least there's something to show you this time!
|(pathetic excuse for a picture ... I hate taking my own picture!)|
Baby is approximately the size of a lemon this week. 3 1/2 inches, and 1 1/2 ounces.
This week's major developments: baby can squint, frown, grimace, pee, and suck his/her thumb!
Having officially entered the second trimester, I'm supposed to be getting some energy back .... which I WAS doing before I got sick again. I sure wish my appetite would disappear for a while instead of my energy! I don't think there are enough raspberries on the planet to satisfy my craving right now. Or cherries. Or watermelon (my favorite food while pregnant with Lucy ... I may or may not have eaten half of a watermelon a day ... by myself!).
So, basically ... fruit. Give me fruit, and I'm happy.
But that's nothing new.
My face is also breaking out BAD this past week (just as it did with Lucy) .... my entire face is covered in tiny little bumps. It is awful. Can't even stand to touch my own skin! UGH!
Hmmm..... I'm thinking GIRL this week!?!
Well, whatever IT is, I started feeling IT kickin' around in there last week! SO COOL!!! And about a month earlier this time than I felt with Lucy -- (they say that's normal).
Lucy continues to seem unaffected by the baby news. She randomly brings it up once or twice a week, talks about it for a few seconds, then moves on. She has been VERY clingy with me though. I'm sure this is JUST the beginning .... :-)
