14 weeks

Baby O is 14 weeks, 3.5 months already and officially in the second trimester. The best trimester of them all! Aside from a month or so of serious nausea (with zero vomiting which is almost worse than just puking and being done with it) and being uber tired, this pregnancy isn't too shabby! Still in denial that it's my last though. Maybe we'll win the lotto and I can have a few more?

I had an appointment yesterday; all is well.  No weight gain thus far.  It's still early and I really shouldn't be gaining so that's a good thing.  (Note to self:  get new scale or fix old one stat!)  Measuring on target and baby's heartbeat was right at 150.  Now if you are a believer of old wives tales that heartbeat rate equates to a girl (but so did Sawyer in the beginning)  Oh and the Chinese Gender Calender says girl too...eek!  That one did predict Sawyer accurately!  Good thing they are just old wives tales!  26 weeks and we'll know what it is for sure!

Here is the heartbeat from yesterday.  It's the faster one, you can hear it pick up mine for a bit as well so just listen for the faster one.  Sorry for the roof and wall shots, I wanted to record on my camera because the sound is better than using my phone.

Not sure how a lemon is bigger than the peach from last week but whatever...oh and don't ever google 14 week fetus. Or any age fetus for that matter. Very sad and gross images. Trust me. Don't do it.
Here is what Little O is up to!

Your adorable little fetus is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, and (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over the body for warmth.

ahhh, now doesn't that sound cute!

I've had 8 ultra sounds so far in this pregnacy last one which was at 19 weeks they could finally tell the sex. It was a targeted higher level ultra sound. I go for another one next week to check my cervical length. Apperantly being high risk and 34 years old = alot of ultra sounds

Unknown said... make me want another one! The process of growing a life is the most amazing thing! Good luck and stay well!
