Mom to Be Monday: Week 14-Let’s Snoogle

I hate to say it, but hubs has been replaced.  Meet Snoogle.  The pillow that spoons with me all night long.       

I bought this pillow last week at Buy Buy Baby because I’ve been having problems sleeping comfortably.  Sleeping on my back has become a no-no because when I do, I feel a slight pressure on my lower stomach and it feels like my insides are moving up.  Weird.  Sleeping on one side for too long starts to hurt my hips and switching back and forth just keeps me up all night.  Enter Snoogle.  I LOVE it.  The first night I slept with it, I slept like a little baby.  I will be taking this thing with me wherever I have sleep.  Sorry hubs.

Our Little Bambino
At 14 weeks, baby C is about the size of a lemon.  He/She weighs about 1.5 oz and is about 3 1/2 inches long.  The big thing this week is that the baby can make facial expressions and squint.  The peanut’s kidney’s are producing urine and it’s being released into the amniotic fluid.  I always wondered if babies used the bathroom while in utero, now I know.  The baby can also grasp and if we were to have an ultrasound right now, we could probably catch the baby sucking its thumb.  At our 20 week appointment, I just hope that we can see whether or not the baby has my dimples 🙂  

How I’m Feeling
Emotional.  I can cry at the drop of a hat.  This weekend while hubs and I were at my parents’ house, he make kind of a smart remark that wasn’t meant to be mean, but I had to excuse myself to the bathroom because I just started crying.  I think he finally realized how these hormones are affecting me.  I also cried last night while watching Octavia Spencer win her Oscar and during this Johnson & Johnson commercial.

GAHH!!!! Other than crying like a baby, my energy levels have been good throughout the day.  I wake up, go to work get a workout in, but by the end of the day I’m spent.  On Friday I came home from work, crashed on the couch, woke up to eat, and then spent the rest of the night curled up in the fetal position watching ‘What Would You Do?’ with my parents until it was time for bed.  Exciting stuff I know.  As far as physical changes go, I have some peach fuzz that decided to show up on my stomach.  Not cool.  Thankfully, it’s very light.  I also have heartburn whenever I eat anything acidic or spicy :-/ Something I will just have to deal with because I really love spicy food.  Overall, I’m feeling good and enjoying every bit of this journey.  I can’t believe it’s a third of the way over and in 6 months we’ll have a little baby to take care of!  We are blessed beyond words.
