How Far Along: 14 weeks and 5 days
Meds: All taken daily – Zofran (3 pills daily). Switched to gummy multi-vitamins. Will resume regular pre-natal vitamins once stomach can handle them again. Switch from 2 Ducolax tablets to Restorolax (aka Miralax in the US) to aid with the constipation. Also, taking Gaviscon or Tums as required for heartburn. Will try the baking soda + water remedy tonight. Thanks for the suggestions ladies! Will let you know how it all works.
Baby is the size of: a peach
Best Moment This Week: Not necessarily the best, but certainly the most classic: peeing myself while puking
Total Weight Gain: +6 lbs – have not gained in a week or two.
Maternity Clothes: My biggest challenge has been finding semi-dressy clothes to wear on business trips. My head office is fairly casual, but our other office is dressier. I currently do not fit into any of my dress clothes. Yesterday, I purchased a new maternity dress and skirt from Old Navy. Our selection in Canada is VERY LIMITED compared to the USA.
Symptoms: NAUSEA! Puking. Heartburn. BOOHOO!
Sleep: Tossing and turning due to heartburn. Still getting up to pee in the night.
Food Cravings: Apples, blueberries, cheesy breadsticks, ice water, cheesecake
Anything making you queasy or sick: Brushing my teeth, driving, flying, bending over or getting up too fast, the smell of urine in public bathrooms,
Movement: Too early.
Stretch Marks: Nothing new.
Baby Bump: “THE BLUMP” is getting bigger.
Gender Prediction: BOY!
Labour Signs: Too early.
Belly Button In or Out?: Innie to start!
Wedding Rings on or off?: On.
Happy or Moody?: Combo of both. Moody on super pukey days. Happy on good days.
Purchases for baby: A santa hat from Old Navy – on clearance for 97 cents. Bargain shopper!
Miss Anything?: Enjoying a meal, cuddling with my husband, not feeling constantly bloated, having a good poop, sleeping through the night… basically everything pre-pregnancy. 😀
Looking forward to: Same as last week – whenever this dreaded nausea subsides! Our anatomy/gender scan on May 28. Feeling baby move.
Random update: We haven’t officially gotten our nuchal translucency (NT) scan results back yet. I called my OB office today to get a refill of Zofran. She said my results were in, but since my next appointment isn’t for a few weeks, he would have called if anything of concern came up. Hopefully that means all is well. 🙂
