14 Weeks

There's nothing that makes me more nervous then the 1st OB appointment where you "should" be able to hear the heartbeat. With Andrew I had a real scare. The doctor was searching and searching for a heartbeat, but couldn't find it. I could tell she was concerned when she left the room without a word for the ultrasound machine. After what seemed the longest 2 minutes of my life, there he was moving around with a heartbeat on the screen. Luckily there was no searching this time, she squirted the warm gel on and there it was thumping away :)

I also gained 5 pounds which the doctor thought was great since I'd hadn't gained since the beginning of the pregnancy (and I was underweight to begin with). I however panicked; that seems like a TON of weight to me in a short time. I'd like to only gain 20lbs like my last two pregnancies. I have a small frame, I want to deliver natural again, and let's face it it's a pain to get rid of afterward.

Other than that I'm back to feeling pretty rotten AGAIN. Some days I can't keep the anti-nausea meds down, so there's nothing I can do but feel terrible. The nights have eased up a little though and I'm able to get some things (i.e. chores) done. I was 15 weeks this Saturday, so time is moving fast!

  1. Don't be worried about gaining baby weight! Of all times, just don't worry about it. Your body will stay on track.
