14w1d

I'm hoping to post weekly Baby H updates starting today.  As a goodbye to my 1st trimester I'll be posting about pregnancy brain Monday and the untold truths of the 1st trimester shortly thereafter.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How far along: 14w1d

Total weight gain: 7 pounds

Size and growth of the baby: Our baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb. Thanks to brain impulses, his/her facial muscles are getting a workout as his/her tiny features form one expression after another. His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him/her -- a process that will keep up until birth. The baby can grasp and suck his/her thumb. In other news: Your baby's stretching out. From head to bottom, measuring 3 1/2 inches [about the size of a lemon] and weighs 1 1/2 ounces; all according to babycenter.com.

Sex: It’s a surprise!

Maternity clothes: Not yet, getting closer each week though!

Sleep: Not bad

Best moment(s) of the week: Reaching the 2
nd trimester! :)

Movement: Still waiting!

Food cravings/aversions: Usually sweets, but some days only salty food sound good.

Morning sickness: Gone

Symptoms: Nothing terrible

Belly button in or out: In

What I miss: tanning

What I'm looking forward to: Picking out a nursery theme
