Time to do the week 14 recap! This should be a short one since not a lot has changed since last week. But I am feeling excited to officially be in my second trimester!
Weight: No weight gain yet, but since I can now keep down all my food I'm sure I'll see new numbers on the scale soon.
Symptoms: Haven't thrown up in almost 2 weeks! Still some nausea early in the morning or if I'm out walking, but definitely manageable. I've been getting really bad headaches at work, borderline migraines, but shortly after I get home in the evenings it disappears and I feel pretty good the rest of the night. Lots of aches and pains in my lower abdomen. Sometimes the pains are so sharp they take my breath away, but they aren't continuous and my midwife assured me (again) that they are nothing to worry about.
Sleep: I feel like I can never get enough! I've still been going to bed pretty early and struggle with waking up for work....but now that I type that, I don't believe things were much different when I wasn't pregnant! I simply love my sleep and will miss it dearly when baby comes ;)
Cravings/Aversions: Tuna fish. Tuna fish. Tuna fish! I want it everyday. Such a weird thing to crave, I know! Kinda makes me cringe when I tell people because I'm pretty sure they find me disgusting. Also, a subway turkey sandwich. I think they only reason I want one so badly is because they say not to eat deli meat while pregnant. By the way, who makes up these rules? I can't have deli meat and have to keep my tuna intake to 8oz or less a week? I'm pretty sure someone who secretly hates pregnant women is just coming up with this stuff to spite us... But I digress...
Workouts: I still haven't worked out at all. Shameful. But I do want to start walking a little more and using our elliptical now that I'm feeling a bit better. So hopefully by my next update, I'll have something to report.
Thoughts: I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with all the "stuff" baby needs and how expensive it is. I'd love any advice from mom's out there who may have discovered a product that every blog, magazine, and baby book out there says you need, but you really never used with baby? What "necessary" buys are really unnecessary?
