14 Weeks - It's a GIRL!

How far along?  14w3d

Total weight gain?  Maybe 2 pounds, every time I weigh I’m between 115 & 117

Maternity clothes?  Nothing really yet, probably going to need some jeans soon

Stretch marks?  No

Sleep?  Sleep is still pretty good, just getting up to pee a lot!  Other than that it’s not too bad.  This past weekend we camped overnight one night and I told Joe to get the tent set up as close to the porta-potty as possible, I only had to make 2 trips in the middle of the night so not too bad.

Best moment this week?  Finding out baby Ridley is a GIRL!  We are so shocked.  Joe decided about 2 days prior to the party that he needed to start mentally preparing himself for it to be a girl, I was still very convinced it was a boy so to both of our surprises, we were wrong & it’s a girl!

Miss anything?  I’m not going to lie, this weekend was a little tough.  It was a really busy weekend, I was pretty emotional after the gender reveal, and on Sunday we took our annual Labor Day camping trip, but I had to follow along in the car behind Joe and our friends on their bikes.  I’m not normally one to care or feel left out, but it was tough.  Going into bars, watching everyone else get seriously wasted around me, being tired, and pregnant was not as fun as I hoped it would be.  I did enjoy myself and overall I had a good time, I just had moments where I felt like I would rather be home. 

Movement?  None yet, probably another month or so I’m guessing.

Food cravings?  Lots of sweets.  I bought a ton of candy downtown Galena this weekend.  Plus we had cake pops and rice krispies at the gender reveal and cake and chocolate covered pretzels at a birthday party Friday, I was in serious heaven.

Anything make you queasy or sick?  Not a darn thing this entire pregnancy!  #yay

Have you started to show yet?  I have a small bump, it’s part baby and part food

Gender prediction?  Obviously my predication has been boy as so has Joe’s this entire time.  I’m not sure why I thought boy, or if I just maybe preferred a boy over a girl or something, but honestly I really did not have a preference, although I was in utter shock.  I will dedicate and entire post to our fabulous gender reveal party later this week with lots of photos! 

Labor Signs?  Nope, but we did hire our doula and we are very confident with our decision.  I’m excited to start prenatal massage with her soon.

Belly button in or out?  In

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or Moody?  Feeling much happier than I was my first trimester

Looking forward to?  Making my first doctor’s appointment this week (missed my last one, SO unlike me) and hopefully being able to hear the heart beat again or at least schedule an appointment for one.  It’s been about 3 weeks since we last got to see her.


  1. Congrats on your baby GIRL! Can't wait to see your gender reveal post! :)

  2. So happy for you both! From here on out, even if you don't have an ultrasound, they should be checking the heartbeat via doppler every visit so that you can at least hear her sweet little heartbeat! Every woman and pregnancy is different, so don't be surprised if it takes a long time until you feel kicks. I'm 23 weeks and 3 days and didn't feel my little girl kick until last week at 22 weeks and 5 days.


  3. I've been stalking your blog, waiting for the gender reveal!! Congratulations!! Let the shopping begin!! ;)

  4. Congratulations!! so happy for you!! now you can start shopping pink.

  5. Congratulations!! I totally thought it was a boy too but you will now have a sweet baby girl!! There are tons more cute clothes for girls so that will be fun!

  6. Oh my gosh! You are pregnant?!?! And it's a girl! Congratulations! Praise God! So happy for you! This is what I et for taking the summer off from blogging!

  7. I get the total shock feeling of finding out you were wrong. Lol I swore up and down this little baby was a girl. I even kept telling the Hubs just to accept it. Started following a bunch of little shops on IG. So to my surprise when I saw on the ultrasound it was another. I think we just convinced ourselves for no apparent reason that it's a particular gender. Either way she's going to be one lucky spiked little babe.

  8. Again, congrats! I'm so excited for you and girls are awesome, but I may be a bit biased. :) And I hear you on feeling left out. I was at my best friend's bachelorette party last year 26 weeks pregnant or so and... it was sucky being around all the drinking and partying and having my belly. Ha! So worth it, but stil. Sucky.

  9. Oh my goodness, Congratulations! So happy for you! <3

  10. ahhhh congrats! so excited for you. i can't imagine what a shock it was!
