Bumpdate: 14 Weeks

So I'm starting this pregnancy out a little, um, slow, as far as posts/updates go. Actually, I'm really not since last time we waited until my second tri to announce....we announced at like 9 weeks this time. I've just not been able to make myself sit and do an update. So sorry, ha. This pregnancy has pretty much been a dupe of my last (first) one. Food aversions like WHOA but no nausea, thank God! Other than being pregnant, things have been pretty quiet around here. We are about to take Peyton to Disney for her first time in a week! But that deserves it's own post :) On to the nitty gritty.....

How far along: 14w2d

Total weight gain/loss: 0 (Woo! The longer the weight takes to pack on, the better!)

Maternity clothes: I'm still in the weird inbetween stage. Right now, there is no need for preggo tops...not even in the near future so it seems. I bought two new pairs of maternity jeans because none of my old maternity bottoms fit, they are all too big. (Since I lost a good amount of weight since last time) I have been wearing both pairs because they are super comfy. One is still kind of big but is better than being uncomfortable in normal pants.

**Also, can I add...they say you start showing alot quicker the second time around. So I was really looking forward to that, because who likes being in that "I think that lady's pregnant, oooorrr maybe she's just chubby??" stage?? This has not been true for me. I just have a "pudge pocket" (I so lovingly like to call it) that's awkward. I can't really suck it in anymore but it's still soft and smooshy, ew sorry that sounds gross. So, you can kindly stick out now anytime you want! ;)

Stretch marks: Ehh, no new ones.

Sleep: So stinking horrible. I maybe sleep like 5 hours. I get up every two hours to pee. NO LIE. The peeing is SO much worse this time. I think my bladder is shot.

Movement: I actually felt little Nuggey (this one's nickname is "Nugget") move a little before my 13th week.  (I'm pretty sure I felt Peyton earlier than I did but I just didn't know what to look for) I'm not at the point of feeling constant movement yet, but the fact that I can feel a little "flutter" here and there is SO awesome. I can't wait for Peyton to feel it!!

Food cravings: Still having MAJOR food aversions. Like, IwishIdidnthavetoeat kind of feelings. However I do have a few "staple foods" that I can pretty much eat at any given time:

1. Grilled cheese sandwiches...YUM
2. Greek Salad from Panera
3. California Rolls
4. Cheese and crackers
I HATE chicken. I hated it with Peyton and it's returned this time too. Chicken= BARF...just so we're clear.
Labor Signs: Pshh no.

Belly Button in or out: My poor misshapen belly's still in. I'm afraid to see what it will look like after this child....

What I miss: Sleeping!!!!!!! And being able to eat whatever

Weekly Wisdom: I have no wisdom to share at the moment.

Milestones: We had our second doctor's appt a week ago and got to hear the little one's heartbeat. Love that :) Peyton has made the association of  "the baby" to my belly. Even though I know she doesn't understand the magnitude of a baby, when I ask her where her baby brother or sister is she'll point to my stomach and say "belly". She'll even kiss it sometimes too ♥
