How far along? 14 Weeks!
Weight gain/loss: Gain:/
Maternity clothes? Yep, I bought some cute shirts from Ross this past weekend that were on sale!
Stretch marks? No
Sleep? I bought a new small temperpedic pillow to help with my headaches and I love it. It is really comfortable to sleep on.
Best moment this week? I sold my mustang! I will really really miss it, but now that we don't have that $500 monthly payment we can put some away in savings.
Food cravings: Queso
Gender: 5-6 more weeks till we find out.
Belly button in or out? In
Movement? None yet
What I miss? My size 4 jeans, hell even my size 6:(
What I'm looking forward to: We are going to see our friend in Austin tomorrow!!! It has been 10 weeks since we have been up there which is forever for us. Can't wait;) And she is going to do my hair for me.
Milestones: 14 Weeks:)
Baby This Week:
You're a third of the way through and baby's a third of the way cooked. Now that the "big stuff" (like skeletal and organ development) is taken care of, your baby starts a period of rapid brain growth, fat buildup and detail work. Highlights this week include:
Your baby now has fingerprints! Believe it or not, he actually created them himself while swimming around in the amniotic fluid. As he moved his hands, the skin on the tips of his fingers formed unique ridges and folds. That's why no one on earth has the same fingerprints, not even identical twins! Baby's arms are now in proportion to his tiny body, but his legs are still on the short size in comparison.
Meconium, that tar-like, sticky first baby poop, is now loading up your baby's intestines, which means you might want to set aside a bottle of olive oil, one of the few things that will get the gooey poop off of baby's bottom.
Your baby continues to gain new and impressive skills such as practicing and controlling voluntary muscle movements (this will help him fling food across the room later in life). Your tiny dancer's movements are no longer the jerky, uncontrollable twitches of yore—he now moves with graceful control.
Your baby is now weighs about an ounce and is the length of a flip phone, or roughly 3.5 inches—he's tripled in size from a mere three weeks ago!
