Trimester Deux

Yes! I've finally made it! Why does it feel like it's taken so long to get here? They say the second time around goes a lot faster. Who's they because I'd like to have a word with them. 

But here we are, 2nd trimester, a third of the way through this thing. And yet it still doesn't feel real. Maybe because I haven't felt a little kick or a nudge, maybe because we haven't seen Juice Drop on an ultrasound, maybe because I'm so busy with Anna that the thought of another human being entering our lives gets put on the back burner for a little while. I already feel bad for this one because by this point in my pregnancy with Anna I had already written like 20 journal entries. This Juice Drop: 2. He or she will get over it, right? Also, I was always so good with posting my weekly photo and survey on the blog on the same day each week. This time I'm cutting it close to not even posting at all. But I know you all would be so devastated if I didn't ;) and I can't have that so here goes (now that I'm closer to 15 weeks than 14):

How far along? 14 Weeks
How big is baby? the size of a lemon and is growing lanugo, that peach-fuzz like hair that I love so much
Total weight gain: guys, I've gained 10 pounds already!!! 
Maternity clothes? some days just so I can feel comfortable 
Sleep: not horrible, yet
Best moment this week: hearing Juice Drop's heartbeat <3 
Miss Anything? a glass of wine when everyone else has one
Movement: no
Food cravings: oh, anything and everything
Gender: we have our ultrasound May 22nd! And then the gender reveal party that weekend :)
Symptoms: this week? bloody noses! One night I woke up covered in my own blood; scary and gross
Belly Button in or out? in between
Happy or Moody most of the time: I want to say happy so bad but let's be honest, I'm moody
Looking forward to: the belly to finally pop so I'm not in that "in between" stage anymore! Are you pregnant or just fat? I just know that's what everybody's thinking! ;)

Here's to hoping I'm better about posting closer to 15 weeks rather than 16 next week!
