Bumpdate: 14 Weeks

(ugh, these photos are blurry *tripod issues*)

I've seen a couple of bloggers doing this weekly "bumpdate," so I've decided to join in. As you can see I don't have much of a bump yet, but whatever.

How far along are you? A little over 14 weeks. Beginning of the second trimester :) 
Total weight gain: uh.... Maybe 4-5 pounds.
Maternity Clothes? I bought my first maternity dress last week, but for now I'm sticking with leggings, skirts, and roomy shirts. I can still wear my jeans with that rubber band trick.
Stretch Marks? Not on my belly... Let's just say I bought a couple of new bras last week. 
Sleep: good!
Best moments: Being able to announce the pregnancy and receiving so much excitement from others! Although, I miss it a little when it was our little secret- when no one gave me weird advice or told me their pregnancy horror stories. Also, seeing the baby move during the sonogram. He/she is the size of a navel orange. 
Missing anything? Dr. Pepper, sometimes. And fitting into some of my favorite tees/dresses. 
Movement? Not yet. 
Food Cravings: Bean burritos! And fast food. I never feel like cooking anymore. 
Symptoms: I have less nausea! But I got pretty light-headed yesterday at work. I think I was dehydrated. I'm making sure to drink tons of water. 
Belly Button in or Out? In! 
Happy or Moody? A little moody, but I've always been sensitive towards certain things, so it's hard  to tell.
Looking Forward to: Going to my father-in-law's birthday tonight. It's not really pregnancy related, but there's gonna be pizza. 

That's right! I got a job this week! I'm working at a portrait studio until we move in June. The boss already knows I'll be leaving in a few months, but they only need someone temporarily. It's super ideal, really. I'm so happy to be working again and I feel like everything is falling into place. #blessed 


  1. This was so exciting to read, Beverly! While I'm not expecting ANY time soon, I absolutely love reading about your process and how you're feeling. I especially love all the food talk - bean burritos and pizza always brighten my day (:

    Congrats on the new job! Can't wait to hear how it goes for you!
