[she is 14 weeks pregnant]

How far along: 14 weeks
Size: Lemon
Gender: I genuinely just want a healthy baby. I know that Josh would love to have a little girl and a little girl would be perfect to grow up with my 6 month old niece but all I can pray about is a healthy baby.
Symptoms: The frequent nausea is starting to lift and the waves of pure exhaustion aren't as frequent or as severe (praise you, Lord). Having some pulling feelings in my lower sides and headaches are starting to ease up.
Maternity clothes: Pants are feeling tight in the waistband even though my bump is so small. I ordered my first maternity shirts (basic tees) last weekend and am living in sweatpants and stretchband Lululemon pants these days.
Stretch marks: None
Belly Button: Still in
Sleep: Sleep is hard. We stay up far too late (11pm-ish usually). The bathroom usage in the middle of the night has gone down to just one time around 4-5am but falling back asleep after that is pretty hard.
Movement: Not yet but I cannot wait. I think all the little bump sensations right now are unfortunately gas.
Cravings: Orange juice: I cannot get enough fresh squeezed orange juice. Catfish Hole: Something about fried catfish is really sounding good. Also, I never really cared for sweets too much before I got pregnant but around 10 weeks, I started craving cookies and candy. Every night I have a mini ice cream bar too. Eeeeks!
Queasy or sick: Nausea really ran the my world from 7-11 weeks of pregnancy. I couldn't eat much without feeling really sick. I didn't actually throw up but would dry heave and not eat anything. Now maybe a few times a week I will feel pretty nauseated.
Best moment of the week: Crossing that 14 week line. My faith is in the Lord for His Will but the ugly human parts of me sometimes get the better of my head. Also, telling my grandma. I was so excited to tell her. She has Alzheimer's but I caught her in a very lucid moment and she was ecstatic. It was nice to have a motherly blood figure to be so thrilled and excited.
Looking forward to: Feeling movement and finding out the gender next month!
Scripture for the week: How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered. - Psalm 139:17

The sign doesn't show well with me in it so here it is solo
