So I pretty much skipped a few weeks of weekly updates- I’ve skipped lime, prune, plum, and peach and finally this week we have Lemon baby at 14 weeks. I’m officially in the second trimester! yaaay! My nausea seems to have disappeared for the most part and I definitely have more energy but only in short spurts. If I walk for too long, or stand for too long by feet and back do hurt quite a bit. Also, have I mentioned that my boobs are huge, I mean HUGE!!!! I can’t stand it, but of course J being the boy he is , is very happy with them. As far as other pregnancy news, there really isn’t much to tell, we had an ultrasound and we have our big anatomy ultrasound scheduled for July 23rd which is only 4 weeks away and I guess we’ll know if we are having a boy or a girl, of course only if the husib cooperates. So onto the state of my womb then?
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.
