14 Weeks

I am 14 weeks today and finally at the 2nd trimester!!!

I am feeling a bit better. Still having to take Zofran most mornings, but the nausea is not lasting all day. I have had a little more energy, too. And while I am able to have a bowel movement almost everyday, every time is still a struggle :(

With the weather being cold and dry, my skin is also really dry, compounded by the pregnancy and it has been really itchy :( Another unpleasant side effect. I am waiting for the glowing skin lol.

One of my friends tells me my eyes sparkle so I must be looking better lol!! I have gained 2 pounds, but someone old me I look like I have lost weight so hopefully I lose in other places and everything I gain just goes to the baby and my belly :)

The results from my Panorama test came back and AGAIN there was not enough DNA in my blood to yield anything. This baby does NOT want to share its secrets with me lol. On Monday I have an appointment with the fetal medicine specialists in Topeka 9i got referred because of my age) and will also have a sonogram with a very fancy machine so they may be able to tell the sex of the baby. Otherwise I will have to wait until mid January at my doctor's. I may try testing one more time. I have until the 11th to decide.

I am looking forward to gaining more weight and getting a pregnant belly (instead of a fat one!) and being able to feel the baby.

Time is marching on! Sounds like everything is going as well as it can and you see some improvement with some of the symptoms you were having. In the meantime, I hope you and TJ have a very nice happy thanksgiving!
