14 weeks! & Halloween

We are officially out of the first trimester folks!!!  That in itself is a fantastic feeling.  I am the worlds biggest worry wort..and although I am way less worried now, I am still going to be worrying...just can't help it!
This week was not the best...I mananged to get through 14 weeks of pregancy symptom free.  Then BOOM!  I got the stomach flu..I imagine from those germy rugrats at school.  I was darn proud that I hadn't thrown up in 6 years...& as much as a I tried to fight it..It was a battle I lost for three days!
I ended up having to go to the ER to get an iv of fluids and get re-hydrated.  Much better now though, thank goodness.  I am down to my pre-pregnancy weight even a week later...but it appears this has only made my bump look larger! haha.  Oh well, lets me know that that little nugget is growing in there...and THAT makes my heart happy!
Today is: October 31st. Happy Halloweeeeen!

How far along: 14 weeks

Total weight gain: - 2 lbs.  nasty flu!

Baby is the size of: A lemon

What's going on with the babe:
Your adorable little fetus is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, and (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over the body for warmth.

What's going on with the mama: Spent the past 5 days on the couch..and the toilet for that matter. 

Baby is a: Boy or a girl. Will be finding out next week! Eek

Maternity clothing: Not yet.  Jeans still fit, but dress pants..not so much. 
Getting ready for work has proven to be quite the challenge each morning & my room looking a tornado went through it afterwards is proof of that!

Sleep: Same ol' same ol'

Movement: Not yet, but I can't wait!

Cravings/Aversions: Cravings this week consisted of everything under the sun since I did note eat for days.  I thoroughly enjoyed watching family members down subs and sushi in front of me while I ate crackers. NOT!

- Still a little fatigued at times.  Nothing an afternoon nap can't help ;)

The best moment(s) of this past week:
- Going to my OB appointment this week and hearing out little babes heart beat at a strong 170!
Glad to know little nugget is getting everything it needs despite my major lack of intake.

I'm looking forward to:
- Our gender ultrasound Tuesday the 9th!!
