Bumpdate: {14 Weeks}

Though we’re dealing with some stresses right now, we are still celebrating this pregnancy and our Little Bean! It really is such an exciting and joyous time. And to think we're this much closer to the half-way point...gaw!

Just makes me want to see our babe even more – hurry up, October!

We have a pretty good idea, but won't know for certain until the anatomy scan at 20 weeks.

Weight Loss/Gain?    
Loss. Dropped the one measly pound I gained (boo!) putting me still below pre-pregnancy weight, sigh...Working hard to get some lbs. on, though. My doctor jokingly said he was going to put me on an all-Chick-Fil-A diet, haha! 

Food is slowing starting to sound good again and my appetite is on the rise. Sweets still make me really queasy, but salty/savory foods like guacamole and queso taste amazing right now. Oh, and I’m off Zofran. Hooray! Also, I enjoyed my very first half-caff vanilla latte since becoming pregnant yesterday. Yum!

Favorite Moment this Week?
Buying my first newborn outfit at Target for our sweet one : )

Funniest Moment this Week?
It actually happened last weekend, but our 4-year-old niece Ava gave Stephen some advice for how to feed a baby using his “ta-tas”, ha! She also reminded him that he WILL need to help change diapers. Thanks, Ava!

I’ve heard a LOT of expectant moms deal with this early in their pregnancies, but I have the worst insomnia right now. Like, I catch my second wind around 10:30 p.m. and I can’t switch it off. Benadryl (as recommended by our OB) helps on nights when it’s really bad, but there’s not a lot of shuteye going on at the S household.

So far, just wearing my regular clothes. I am definitely starting to show and LOVE my bump – woohoo!

Thinking of doing a mommy link-up this spring where we can share tips/secrets on favorite baby products, brands, feeding tips, what worked for you/didn't, etc. What would you moms think about that?


  1. Ohhh my goodness, you look SO CUTE! I love your little bump!!I am praying for your little bean :)

  2. You look great! Wishing all stays well with your little bambinio! And, I may have mentioned this, but Target has the best maternity tanks right now for about $15.00- they're long enough w/ leggings, and super comfy. (I have three) I know they'll get me through the next 12 weeks and after baby- so go get some! And, a link up would be super fun!

  3. So excited to read your pregnancy journey over the next few months. Love your outfit and hair in this post. Praying for you! No one ever tells you scary and worrisome it is to bring a child into this world. There were many nights I would and still stay awake praying for so many uncertainties, but it is all so worth it. Happy Wednesday :)

  4. You have the sweetest little bump! So glad you will be sharing some of your pregnancy here! It goes by so fast! Enjoy every moment!

  5. You look so darling! Been praying for you and your little bean. Would LOVE a mommy link-up! I've got Baby #2 due in August.

  6. Loving your adorable little bump! Hoping all is well with you and baby. I was only interested in savory foods (wanted nothing to do with sweets) for the first half of my pregnancy and ours ended up being a little boy, so maybe you and S are having a little man!!! And I would LOVE to participate in the mommy link up. Both to share what I've learned throughout my pregnancy, and to read advice and opinions from fellow mamas to help prepare for the arrival of our little man in June:)

  7. Loving your little bump! I wish I could only say I have gained a lb. I am approaching 17 weeks on Saturday. I would LOVE to do a mommy link up. :-)

  8. You are looking great! Love the dress BTW!

  9. You look great and love the dress! I feel your pain on the sickness...I took zofran twice a day for almost 7 months and then the nausea came back for the last 4 weeks. Other than that I had a perfectly healthy pregnancy, but feeling shaky and queezy all day every day is no fun. The sweet baby boy (now 3 year old) was well worth it though!

  10. Bless your heart! Morning sickness is no fun! I was on Zofran up until last week (I am 21 weeks pregnant with our first).

    Hang in there!!!

  11. You look adorable and I love your little bump :) I'm 34 weeks along, enjoy it as much as you can because it goes by super fast!!! congrats again!

  12. This dress looks amazing on you!

  13. You look so cute and that dress is adorable!!!

    Sincerely Miss Ash

    Praying for you during these stressful times.

  16. So excited to see you post! I'm excited to see what maternity clothes you choose!

    This is an off topic and weird question but I love the strip on none grass next to your sidewalk. How did you guys remove the grass right there?

  17. Your little bump is precious! Can't wait to follow your pregnancy and see how sweet little ONE is! I'm thinking girl...

  18. You have the cutest little bump. I'm just a few weeks ahead of you (with baby #2) and I have a much bigger bump.....and a fat roll underneath that. ha. It's attractive. ;)

  19. That dress looks great on you! You will look super cute with a bigger baby bump:)

  20. You look amazing here, I haven't been reading your blog (which I will be now!) but hope everything goes well for you and your baby!


  21. So cute!! I would loooove a mommy link up!!!

  22. I just recently stumbled upon your blog and have had fun linking up to your Friday Confessional! Congrats on your pregnancy! It's such an exciting time, and your little man or lady will be here before you know it. I think a mommy link up would be fun!

  23. Girl, I am so looking forward to following along with your pregnancy! With the recent arrival of our little Grace I am more excited than ever for my pregnant friends!

    Everyone will tell you that all of the aches and ailments that come along with pregnancy are worth it, and although it is so hard to see it now, I promise it's true! Hurry up, October! :)


What'cha got?
