Pregnancy Update: 14 Weeks

As my first official post on The Wilsonian Institute, I thought it was only fitting that I post a pregnancy update to balance out years of boy-posts. If you aren't fascinated by all things baby/pregnancy, this post probably won't be for you. Now, let's kick the estrogen up a notch ;)

*Disclaimer: My belly looks extra pronounced in this picture, which I believe is a result of a) me sticking it out a little bit and b) hand placement.

How far along? 14 weeks! I know I've still got another 26 to go, but I am SO thankful to be in my second trimester! The Lord has been so gracious throughout this pregnancy and I can't wait to see what's next!
How big is baby Wilson? The size of a navel orange.
Maternity clothes? Sometimes. I'm still a little small for most things, but if I can get away with wearing a stretchy waistband, I'm doing it.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Yes, please. I'm finally sleeping through the night now that I don't have to wake up every morning at 4 AM to pee.
Best moment this week: This was technically last week, but seeing baby Wilson move around on the ultrasound was the best! We got to see legs, arms, the heartbeat, his/her face and a ton of movement!
Miss Anything? Sushi, unsweet tea and diet coke.
Movement: Just what we could see on the ultrasound. Can't wait to start feeling the "flutters" I keep hearing about!
Food cravings: Nothing too distinctive, but I could definitely put away some Marie Calendars Parmesan Chicken Pot Pie.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Apples. I've decided to boycott them for the rest of this pregnancy.
Gender predictions: I've been thinking boy, but Jeremy keeps saying he has no idea.
Labor Signs: No. PTL!
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: It's kind of a toss-up. I'd say happy and SLEEPY most of the time, but Jeremy might beg to differ ;)
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender!

Love this!! Such a great idea! How often are you gonna post? And girl... Once you try full-panel maternity jeans... You will never go back. I still wear a skinny jean pair from old navy. Glory. And love the shout out to the 4am pee. It'll come back... Except add midnight and 2am in there :p haha that's what it was like for me the last couple weeks...

Very cute picture, Danielle! One night right before Annabel was born, James was too excited to sleep deeply and asked me why I kept getting up to go to the bathroom during the night. I couldn't believe that was the first time he had noticed! At least one of us was sleeping soundly. :)
