Week 14 of Pregnancy – 2nd Trimester

week 14

Hello all! It’s time for a pregnancy update! Last week I talked about Weeks 12 and 13. Today I’m going to share about how week 14 of pregnancy went – I can’t believe I’m in the 2nd trimester already!


Week 14

Sleep – Well, I think my body now needs a little less sleep. My “early bird” body is back. Meaning, even with no alarm set I wake up between 7 and 8am (instead of the 9 or 10am it was in the first trimester). HOWEVER, with Christmas and visiting the midwife this week, there is so much to think about. So, trying on clotheswhen I wake up in the middle of the night, I’ve been unable to go back to sleep for an hour or two. Even though I’m going to bed earlier, the lost 2 hours, plus my “early bird” body – I’m not getting as much sleep as I need.

Total weight gain/loss? – Last week I told you that I had gained just 3 pounds in my first trimester. Then, last weekend I Christmas partied it up and gained 4 pounds in 2 days! Whoops, but when I weighed myself again the last day of week 13, I was just 2 pounds up from last week, so 5 pounds up overall.

Maternity clothes? – I got my first maternity hand-me-arounds this week!! I had a lot of fun trying the clothes on. Much of it still looks weird on me since I’m not big yet, but it’s still good to have! I did learn that I wanted maternity jeans, so I went out and bought those. :)
I also took that time to go through all my wardrobe and I currently only have 15 shirts and one pair of pants from my wardrobe that fit me (and no summer clothes, but I’ll worry about that later)!! So, I’m glad I bought the jeans, and I’ll have do to some more shopping after Christmas.

Best moment last week? – My husband telling me this pregnancy had felt even more real as he is seeing my baby bump develop. :) We are so enjoying this pregnancy!!

What I am looking forward to: Christmas break and time with family!!

We’ve been taking photos since week 6 and showing a fruit or vegetable in the picture that is the same size as our little “June Bug”. For weeks 12 and 13: Lime (2 1/2 inches), Lemon (3 inches long). This week: Avocado (3 1/2 inches long):

    You are one adorable mama! I love the fruit comparisons. So sweet and healthy 😉 Did you hear Drew Barrymore named her daughter Olive, because she was the size of an olive? Maybe just rumor, but still cute! Just steer clear of Avocado or Grapefruit, your little one would probably never forgive you!

    Merry Christmas and thank you for linking up on Photo Friday – hope to see you in 2013

      Thank you so much Deirdre. Pregnancy has been so fun so far! Olive is a sweet name. :)
