Bump Update- Week 14

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 14 weeks, last Friday
Size of baby: 3.4 inches- a lemon
Maternity Clothes: Wearing mostly normal clothes still, some maternity jeans, some normal jeans with belly band. I find the maternity jeans more comfortable though because I don't have to mess with them as much.
Gender: We will find out on March 22, woohoo!
Movement: Not yet but I can't wait until there is.. I read probably around week 16, so not too long!
Sleep: I am still sleeping very well, but have started getting charlie horses in my calves at night. I've always gotten these but they have become WAY more intense in pregnancy. Like, the next day I can hardly walk when I first get out of bed and it hurts to even touch my calves. I did not have any last night so that is great news!
What I miss: Still Lunchmeat.. although I have it some at home.. nothing else really :) I am loving my second trimester so far!
Cravings: Chick-Fil-A still always sounds great, the other day I was talking to my mom and she was making a pasta salad.. then I kept thinking about that, so I made one yesterday!
Symptoms: I've read that many women experience charlie horses in pregnancy, so that must be why they are so bad now. I felt nauseous yesterday for the first time in awhile, but I think I just let my stomach get too empty. Oh, I am also VERY forgetful.. which is not normally like me.
Best Moment this week: My bump is starting to show a little bit and I am wearing things that show it (I was so worried before because I just told my students 2 weeks ago) the other day one of my girls (they are all SO excited) came up to me and hugged me, she rested her head on my bump and said "Mrs. Pennywell, I really hope that baby is nice and comfy in there, I love it already!" It made me smile. They are all SO ready to know if it is a boy or a girl! It is just such an exciting time and I am trying to remember through the good parts AND the bad parts of pregnancy how BLESSED I am.

You look so cute!! You are totally glowing!! I have had TERRIBLE charlie horses as well- since being pregnant. They are the worst! I use it as my excuse to get a lot of smoothie king (bananas). : )
