14 Weeks

How Far Along: 14 weeks...2nd trimester!!!
Size of Baby: 3 1/2 - 4", about the size of a lemon or an adult fist
Gender: We hope to find out around Christmastime!
Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but I'm definitely feeling protest flutters around my jeans' waist band when I'm sitting down :)
Movement: Those precious flutters and taps are becoming more frequent. I still don't feel them all the time or even everyday, but I can definitely tell when the flutters are baby making itself known.
Cravings: Still loving my turkey sandwiches on homemade bread and vegetables, any kind, salad, steamed, stir fried, raw. Also fruit, any kind.
Symptoms: Nausea is pretty much a thing of the past. There are a few very strong smells or meals that just don't sound friendly to me these days, but other than that it's been left behind in the 1rst trimester. I'm exercising every day and now just waiting on the baby bump to prove a pregnancy exists!
Best Moment of the Week: The boys have been very helpful in trying to name the baby for us. Their top choices have been Jack, like a jack-in-the-box, since the baby is inside my tummy and will pop out to surprise us (as explained by Harrison.) And Jefferson has suggested the name "Chair" for reasons only he will ever know, but points for creativity :)
