14 weeks - 2nd Tri, baby!

Due Date: August 25, 2012
How far along: 14 weeks - officially in the 2nd trimester, whoo hoo!!!!
The Bump:

Total weight loss/gain: still -9 lbs overall 
Workouts: Though I'm feeling better than last week, still not up to moving much. Sleep and/or the couch sound better. :)
Baby items purchased: Nothing, but starting to look at nursery things online.
Sleep: Still very tired and going to bed early most worknights.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The nausea is getting much better! There are still some foods I have aversions to and certain smells that I don't love, but overall it's a lot better.
Symptoms: The newest symptom this week has been migraines in the afternoon that last until bedtime.
Food cravings: Kettle corn and applesauce this week. And soup - I've eaten it for lunch the past 4 days in a row.
Maternity clothes: Wearing maternity jeans and black work pants now! Again, can still wear the old stuff but why not wear something that feels like sweatpants but is office appropriate?! :)
Stretch marks: No
Gender ideas: No idea - I find myself saying "he" but nothing in particular makes me feel that way - and we're not finding out!
Movement: Not yet
Labor Signs: Not yet, thank goodness!
Miss anything: Working out hard
Best moment this week: My sweet husband helping me with migraine pain on Monday night by making me lie down in the dark bedroom with soft music playing, an ice pack on the back of my neck and a cold washcloth on my head - he is so thoughtful.
Looking forward to: Girl's Night tonight - dinner at Good Earth followed by seeing The Vow!


  1. 2nd trimester is the best! Enjoy every minute of it :)

  2. Congratulations Kate! I was so excited when I heard you were pregnant! I have been praying for you and Tyge since the miscarriage.
    I have been thinking about you guys lately knowing that you have your Mexico trip soon. Know that all three of you are in my prayers.
    Baby and I are doing fine. I am sitting with my swollen feet up. I somehow just managed to paint my toenails. That was quite the work out! I think I will be getting pedicures from here on least until this belly is gone!
    Hope to run into you at church sometime soon!

  3. Looking beautiful, Kate!!! I love your blog, it's so much fun to read! Keep the updates and photos coming...and be well! Much love, Erin
