14 Weeks

I know that it was over 80 degrees today, but our church is ridiculously cold so I was wearing a sweater
How far along? 14 weeks
Maternity clothes? Not yet, I'm still hangin' in there!
Sleep:  I've been having the weird pregnant wake-ups at 4 in the morning.  Slightly annoying, but apparently I'm very productive when I can't sleep.
Best moment this week:  Finding out that Jenna is going to have a little sister!!!!!  I'm so excited about matching outfits and putting on shows and copying each other and reading pioneer books and bike rides and dance class and t-ball games and church Christmas pageants and summer library programs and...I know I could do these things whether we were having a boy or girl, but it's just really fun picturing specifically doing all these things with our two girls!

Miss Anything?  No, actually. ...alright fine, I did sneak a little bite of a turkey sandwich, but I felt really bad about it, ok? 
Movement: I don't think so?  But I want to be so badly that I convince myself that any little stomach gurgle or heartbeat is actually the baby kicking.  I actually had a dream this week that she was moving around so much I could see her whole foot pushing out of my stomach.  And then she pushed her hand against my stomach and Jacob started holding it.  Super weird, but it was also kind of sweet?
Food cravings: I thought a lot about pancakes this week.  And grapes.  And I started eating bananas again, which only happens when I'm pregnant
Anything making you queasy or sick: Noooo, thankfully!! I've felt great this week!
Have you started to show yet: Yes.  Jenna always wants to lift my shirt and hug my belly...I don't know if she understands that there's a baby in there or if she just really likes bellies, but it's pretty cute.
Gender: Girl!!!  Woo hoo!!
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button in or out? Half of it is extremely out and half of it is extremely in.......I don't know what's going on.
Wedding rings on or off? On!! Score!! I've officially made it longer than I did when I was pregnant with Jenna!  I'm crossing my fingers that I can keep it on this whole pregnancy!! (Not crossing them too hard though, obviously.  I wouldn't want to cause any unnecessary swelling)
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy!
Looking forward to: Having the gender confirmed with an ultrasound.  It'll be a while, I know, and I know the blood test is supposedly super accurate but it'll be nice to have the confirmation
