This time around I wanted to document more thoroughly what I remember from various points in the pregnancy. While I probably will not post every single week (at least not until much closer to the end), I found inspiration from several other mom and pregnant bloggers to fill out this survey at least once a month to help me remember how I was feeling during this time, because, as with Connor, I am sure it will all be a blur once he/she arrives.
I pieced the questions together from difference questionnaires I'd seen online, and here is what I am experiencing and feeling so far: :)
How far along? 14 weeks, 2 days
How big is baby? size of a lemon :)
Total weight gain/loss: +3 pounds so far
Maternity clothes? I am still wearing my regular clothes, but with pants I have to use the rubber band through the button hole and around the button trick. Fun times.
Stretch marks: Just the stretch marks I already had from Connor and weight gain/loss over the years.
Best moment this week: At our appointment yesterday we heard the heartbeat (again), and that is always the most wonderful, relieving sound to this mom's ears.
Movement: I feel little bubbles of movement at times, but nothing significant yet.
Food cravings: Hawaiian shaved ice (still craving it after having it last week), anything bland or with lots of bread or cheese involved
Food Aversions: Meat is still not particularly appealing to me, especially pork for some reason.
Labor Signs: None at all, thankfully.
Symptoms: Nausea (if I get too hungry), exhaustion (or maybe this is just from the start of school), and some trouble sleeping
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: Exercise, but this is not because of pregnancy, but because I have been too busy to go lately. I need to get back in a good routine!
What I am looking forward to: Hopefully finding out the sex of baby #2 at our next appointment!
Upcoming appointments/events: The anatomy scan (and hopefully gender reveal) are on September 27th (which also happens to be the day before Connor's third birthday)
Weekly Wisdom: Carpe diem -- I am remembered to seize every day I have with Connor before baby #2 arrives...he is growing up too fast.

(I don't have a comparison picture from when I was pregnant with Connor, because I wasn't even showing at that point in my pregnancy with him.) What a difference three years and a lack of ab muscles makes. :(
