14 Weeks!

14 Weeks!
Sunday March 20th - Saturday March 25th

I'll add my picture tomorrow...

I'M NO LONGER NAUSEATED!!!!! I'm still picky about what I eat, but I'm past the nauseated stage. Everyone said it would get better after the first trimester was over and thankfully they were right! I think I'll have my full on appetite soon....lookout!

I had my first craving this week...broccoli. If you know me very well, you know how weird that is. I don't really eat vegetables...especially green ones. For some reason on Friday I was really wanting broccoli so I went to the store and got a few things and made a broccoli salad. You know, the one with craisons and sunflower seeds. Yum! Maybe there's hope for me and veggies after all. If this baby changes my eating habits to where I enjoy veggies more than dessert, that would be a pretty good thing. I'm not counting on it though. I've also been craving the cake batter ice cream from Maggie Moo's or Marble Slab. Unfortunately (actually it's probably good or I'd eat it every day) there aren't any ice cream places in Joplin. We have lots of frozen custard places, but no ice cream. It's just not the same.

The crib and dresser came in this week! I can't wait to get it all set up. I love it. I've been playing with the idea of how I want the bedding to look. I think I've made up my mind on what I like if it's a boy. I'm still not sure on what to do if it's a girl though.

Our baby is about 4 1/2 inches, the size of a large navel orange. Our baby is busy practicing breathing, sucking, and swallowing all day. Body movements also continue to get practice this week too. I can hardly wait to feel it! By now the ears are positioned properly on the sides of the head and the eyes are moving from the side of the head to the front of the face. I'm really looking forward to my ultrasound...whenever that will be. I can't wait to get a glimpse of this little one!

It's crazy how those little ones change your eating habits. I never in my life liked tomatoes until baby #2. I couldn't get enough.
I'm glad you are feeling better!! Yay for the second trimester! It was always my best time.siessh
