Week 14

ABOUT THE BABY:
The baby is about the size of your fist and should be making itself known in the upcoming weeks. At about 3.5 inches long and 1.6 ounces, his/ her little body and limber limbs are coordinated enough for loads of  motions. In fact, it's whole body is moving right now!  I can't wait to start feeling those movements in my tummy!  The baby is also starting to develop the ability to move it's eyes this week, although the eyelids still remain fused shut. What's more, he/she can make all sorts of fun facial expressions as they practice squinting, frowning, and grimacing. Cute development of the week: his/ her little hands can grasp at things and it may already be sucking it's thumb. 

HOW AM I DOING?
Better today than I've been all week.  This past week was one of my worst thus far mostly due to the fact that I was sick the whole week with cold and flu-like symptoms on top of my normal pregnancy sickness.  I am glad to be getting over it and feeling better!!!  I'm not complaining though because I've waited a long time to be pregnant and if it takes a week of sickness and bedrest, then it's a small price to pay!  My next doctors appointment is next Tuesday, Dec. 8.  We can't wait to hear that heartbeat!  I haven't had any real food likes this week.  I've just been eating what I can at the moment to keep something in my system.  I am sure that I will make up for it soon.  As my belly starts to grow, the reality of being pregnant is really starting to sink in.  In case I haven't mentioned it lately, I am thrilled to be carrying this child!
