the bump: 14 weeks


We made it to 14 weeks, can you believe it? I thought I’d be stuck in the first trimester for  forever. (apparently with pregnancy I’ve gotten more dramatic!)

The morning sickness is almost gone and my appetite is back! Goodness, it feels so good to eat again.  That’s all I want to do now, eat, eat, eat! Ask B, I can down quite a few rolls of (cooked) sushi, all by myself! Mmmm.

This sweet little one just keeps growing, making outfit choices in the morning quite difficult. I can’t stand having anything rest on my stomach, so my choices are limited. Usually I walk around the house pantless (scandalous, I know!) and throw on a dress if it’s completely necessary. Like, dire circumstances necessary.

B has been really good about putting up with my pregnancy mood swings. Poor guy, since the day we got married I’ve been either crazy from that dreadful thing called birth control or from being knocked up. Whether it’s being overly happy to a downright emotional freak, he’s been there for it all. And he always goes to the grocery store with a long list and picks up whatever I’m craving that week. Isn’t he the greatest hubs?

Along with this pregnancy has come some intense irritation and rage. I’m just going to blame the hormones! Incident #1: The other day, as I was walking to the checkout at the grocery store with my one loaf of French bread, some man cut me off with his cart filled with groceries. This cart was piled high people! Don’t worry, I chased him through the parking lot, with the intent of whacking him with my one loaf of bread and chewing him out. Thankfully (for his sake), I run out of breath quickly and just couldn’t keep up with him. Next time, next time. Incident #2: Someone. Touched. The. Belly. I’ve been ranting about this for over a week now,  B can verify (he’s sick of it! pretty sure he’ll pounce at anyone who gets close to my stomach, just so he doesn’t have to hear me whine and complain about it anymore!)  If you are my husband or have been given verbal permission by pregnant lady, you can touch the bump. Otherwise, hands to yourself. Please.

In about a month, we’ll find out whether baby zurchling is a boy or a girl! What’s your guess? Let us know over here ————>

    Oh man I am laughing so hard. Come on people, I, her mother, spent the entire day with her on Monday…I'm talking like 12 hours and didn't ONCE touch her belly…although she probably would have let me if I asked. But, like mother, like daughter…keep your hands off the belly. Haha. I was cracking up at that!
    B is the man, what a great husband. You two are going to have so much fun being parents!! Love you both. Here's to a week of no one attempting to reach out and touch your belly. They may get their hand amputated!! Love you!!

    I'm with you Alexa. It didn't happen often (fortunately) but there is something about a pregnant lady's belly that some people just have to touch. Hands off, I say.

    With regard to the mood swings. I can totally relate. Hated birth control. I never felt like myself. (That's why we have five kids now. And we love every one!) Took it once and I'll never take it again. Reading your post took me back to my first year of marriage. I think Neil wondered if I was the same person he'd married. Between birth control and pregnancy I definitely wasn't myself. With each pregnancy I think I've learned to handle the mood swings a little bit better. Good luck to you sweet girl. You will be the best mommy ever! (P.S. I say boy!!)
