14 Weeks

Here's a few shots of me at 14 weeks.  My belly's just popping right out already! ALREADY in maternity pants!!!





Croix is starting to understand that there's a baby in Mommy's belly, always saying he want's it out!  I felt the baby move for the first time yesterday (15 weeks).  It was one of those perfect moments in life, I was laying in bed with Croix at nap time.  He was snuggled up in my arms resting his head on my shoulder and I felt the first little flutters.  At first I wasn't sure but it happened a few more times and I knew, that's what it was.  That's a moment I'll just file away in my memory and one of the happiest ones!

I'm STILL feeling nauseous and exhausted.  In fact just this morning I almost passed out when I got so nauseous and light headed while cooking eggs that the world started to go black.  I keep thinking any day I'll start to feel better, but today was not that day, maybe tomorrow!  All so worth it!

I think part of the reason I'm still feeling so miserable is Croix is not sleeping well, thus I'm not sleeping well.  He's been waking up between 5-6 every morning and then not even napping for an hour.  (I'm thinking hoping it's just his molars coming in and that any day he'll go back to sleeping till 7 again!)  The earlier I wake up the more sick and tired I feel.  (I do not mention any of this to complain or for any to feel sorry for me, simply to document)

Croix has watched a little more PBS then he should, but I've tried very hard to keep the tv off, and just play, or go be exhausted at the park so he can play.  Thank heavens for our beautiful weather!

I'm hoping the fact that this pregnancy has been so different from Croix's is an indicator that this wee one is a girl....two and a half weeks and we find out!  Can hardly wait!

So excited for you. The popping out is one of the downsides of a baby in an already stretched out stomach:) You look great though. Lots of cute pictures! I wish I would have had a blog with Alannah:(
