So...here's how he and his mommy look at 14w3d.
Certainly showing a good bit...in a few specific places...and not sure how because I still am about a pound less than I was when I got pregnant. I've picked another pound up in the last week or two, I guess, because I now sort of steadily weigh in at 99 (give or take a few ounces) at the end of each day but considering how big I am in SOME places, I'm not sure how I've not picked up more.
I've had a yucky cold this week. Colds for me typically linger and then move into infection on a good day...so while pregnant, uck. I had a cold that actually DID go away at the beginning of my pregnancy with Matthew, and one later that turned into bronchitis, so....we'll just hope this one goes away soon. A few more days and I'll probably hit the doctor anyway because I feel like it's moving into a sinus infection.
Food is still not very appealing, unless it is Taco Bell or some sort of sweet junk food. Luke likes beans, cheese, sour cream and doughnuts. He also likes sour gummy worms and sour skittles (which are WAY too hard to find any more) but my stomach can only handle so many. I've started to have ice cream cones after dinner (with John peddling them like a drug pusher!) and right now the flavor of the week is Cherry Vanilla.
Here's what's going on with Luke:
Week Fourteen: Hormones start up
|You are 14 weeks pregnant. (fetal age 12 weeks)|
Your child's bones are getting harder and stronger by the day. Your baby's skin is very transparent still. Lanugo (very fine hair) covers the baby's body and will continue to grow until 26 weeks gestational age - Generally this will be shed prior to birth. Its purpose is to help protect baby's skin while in all that water.
As your baby grows, your uterus and placenta are also growing. Six weeks ago, your uterus weighed 5 ounces (140 g). Now, it weighs about 8.75 ounces (250g). The amount of amniotic fluid around the baby is also increasing. There is now about 7.5 ounces (250ml) of fluid. You can easily feel your uterus about 3 inches (7.6cm) below your bellybutton.
Your baby is 3.42 inches (8.7cm) long and weighs about 1.52 ounces (43 grams)
