2/23/11 - 14 Weeks - End of the First Trimester!

Written on 2/23/11

Today marks the official 14 week point.  Depending on who you ask, the first trimester ends after either 13 or 14 weeks, but the practice I go to says 14 weeks so I'm sticking with that as well.  Regardless of how I define it, I am finally out of the first trimester and into the second!

Here's what I look like at 14 weeks:

Gotta love that look Murph is giving me....

I have a really rough week last week with a cold and a nagging cough that has been keeping me up most nights.  The tiredness has left me feeling lazy and unmotivated, which meant no workouts for almost an entire week, and a lot of giving in to cravings of not-so-healthy foods.  I gained two hold pounds in one week, for a total of 4 pounds gained total in this pregnancy so far, so I'm planning on losing those two - or at least most of them - this week as I get back on the diet train.

My stomach still isn't noticeably larger to anyone who isn't the wiser, but I definitely notice it.  Also, after I eat, especially if I eat even just a little too much, it puffs out like I'm at least 6 months pregnant and it hurts soooo bad.  I'm still wearing all of my pre-pregnancy work clothes, but there are a few pairs of pants that definitely leave button marks on my stomach when I'm sitting at my desk all day - those will soon be retired.  I have at least 3 pairs of pants that were always a little too big on me so I'm hoping those will get me through the next two months or so to when it's slightly warmer and I can start wearing skirts and dresses.
