14 Week Pregnancy Update

Just started my 15th week, so I am a tad late with this update, but I have been super busy with work and life… and being pregnant. So there!

14 weeks pregnant twinsI was really not feeling well the day we took this picture, hence the fake smile.

 

 

 

How far along? 14 weeks
Size of Babies: Lemon sized
Total weight gain/loss: -10, +5!
Symptoms: Some fatigue, food aversions, nausea (which I thought was gone, but isn’t) and the start of some round ligament pain!
Maternity clothes? Heck yes, though I have trouble keeping the pants up.  Trying to wear some pre-mat pants for awhile.
Stretch marks? None from the pregnancy. :)
Sleep: Waking up quite a bit, but fall right back to sleep. We have been really busy at work so I am have some hip and low back pain because of that which makes laying down a little painful.
Best moment this week: Knowing it won’t be too much longer until we can find out what the little babies are!
Miss Anything? Being able to eat a full meal.  Vegetables sounding good.
Movement: Nothing yet… Can’t wait for that!
Food cravings: Some here and there, but nothing crazy this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Food.
Have you started to show yet: There’s definitely a bump there, but I just mainly feel chunky and not pregnant yet.
Gender prediction: Crossing my fingers for a boy and girl!
Labor Signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, but I have had some intense sad feelings which are really pretty inexplicable.
Looking forward to: Finding out the genders and feeling them move! (Still!)

 

I have been taking a cocktail of Unisom and vitamin b6 for nausea for a few weeks now and started reducing my dose this past week thinking my morning sickness was gone. Unfortunately that was not the case! I found out pretty quickly that it is still keeping my nausea at bay.  I am going to just keep taking it for awhile since it won’t hurt anything.

Overall, I have been feeling okay-ish. I know most woman start feeling better in their second trimester. I don’t know if because I’m having twins it may be different, or if it is lupus… but I keep hoping to get more energy soon!

  1. I’m a week behind you but my bump is a week ahead! I feel so huge right now…I can’t imagine where I’ll be in another 20+ weeks. Part of the journey, right :). Do you take the Unisom every day? I’ve been taking 12.5 mg 2 or 3 times a week bc my sleep is so bad…I know it’s doctor approved but it makes me nervous! Then again, everything makes me nervous these days :).
