How far along are you? 14 weeks

Sleep? ...

Best moment? nausea sneaking back up

Movement? flutters!!!

Any food cravings/aversions? ugh..just ugh....

Gender? Uknown.

Belly button? In

What I miss? feeling normal and not like some neanderthal that doesn't know how to act. I swear I'm not the same person as before!

Looking forward to anything? hearing my baby's heartbeat again, it's been too long

Symptoms this week: morning sickness and cramping/stretching

Weight gain? no idea

Wedding rings? On

Maternity clothes? still none

What TheBump says: Hungry much? Now that you're not feeling so queasy, you're probably enjoying eating. A lot. Plus, you're fueling baby's growth -- which is happening at super speed at 14 weeks. Be sure to keep plenty of healthy snacks by your side just in case you get the munchies. It's important -- for you and for baby -- that you don't indulge in too many greasy, fatty foods, so you're both getting the right nutrients. (Of course, the occasional bowl of ice cream is totally okay.) And we just wanted to remind you: eating for two doesn't mean doubling your calorie intake. Not only have you gotten your appetite back at week 14, but you've probably also gotten some of your energy back, too. If you found yourself shying away from exercise during trimester one, it's time to get back on track. Go take a walk! Your baby's the size of a lemon! At week 14, your baby is 3.4 inches and 1.5 ounces, he's almost doubled in weight since last week and keeps on growing. He's probably sucking his thumb and wiggling his toes in there. His kidneys are making urine, and his liver and spleen are doing their jobs, too. And he's growing lanugo, a thin peach-fuzz-like hair, all over his body -- it will keep him warm.
