Week 14

Now that I've officially entered my second trimester, which is still hard to believe by the way, I decided to start posting a weekly pregnancy update.  I think for me this will be a great way to remember this experience later on.  I bought a notebook that I planned on writing this kind of stuff in, but honestly have been terrible about keeping up with it. 

How Far Along? 14 Weeks - Hooray!  Second trimester, honestly, it's still hard to believe. 
Maternity Clothes? None yet.  Today is the first day I'm wearing a band.  So far, so good :)
Weight Gain? Not sure.  I seem to really go up and down.  This was also the case before I got pregnant.  One day I wear two pounds, more the next day two pounds less.  I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, so I'll see what she says.  I'm underweight anyway so I'm assuming I'll be packing on the pounds at some point
Stretch Marks? None yet - I'm sure these are coming though. 
Sleep? Okay.  I've been really hot at night lately though, even with the AC and a fan blowing right on me.  I also wake up a few times to use the bathroom. 
Best Moment of the Week?  Probably just having time off from work for the holiday.  I just love having extra days off. 
Weirdest Comment:  Nothing really - although there are still a lot of people who don't know I'm pregnant.  If they notice my growing midsection, they haven't said anything yet. 
Movement? Not yet. 
Gender?  Too soon to tell. 
What I miss? Nothing. 
Symptoms: This week my pants getting tighter is about it.  Last week we were on vacation and if I spent too much time walking or outside in the heat I felt really drained very quickly. 
Weekly Wisdom:  When I told the HR Director at my office, she said, that I should complete enjoy being pregnant.  It's such a special time and short time and most women only experience it a few times.  She's so right.  I've been enjoying my pregnancy, but what she said really impacted me.  Clearly I work in a 'family friendly' office :)

Milestones: Second trimester. 
Emotions: Happy and so incredibly thankful to finally get to experience this gift.  Our next OB appointment is tomorrow and of course, I'm still nervous. 
No belly pictures yet - I took some yesterday for myself, but honestly, I'm still too nervous to post them.  Hopefully I'll start to feel like I can soon!
