Pregnancy Week 14

WOO HOO!!! I am feeling much better! I still have moments of feeling nauseous but I am feeling  a lot better.

Nothing new to report, my stomach is growing and getting harder and yesterday I felt some slight teeny tiny movements. I wouldn’t have noticed them if I was thinking about it.

I love to listen to the baby on the doppler. The sweet sound of it’s little heart beating away is amazing.

Your Baby in Week 14 of Pregnancy

Now the size of your clenched fist, your baby is more fluid-like in his movements, so he’s no longer doing the jerk every time he repositions his arms and legs. Other developments this week include a roof of his own (inside his mouth, that is) as well as intestinal activity: His intestines are producing meconium (which is the waste that will make up his first bowel movement after birth). He is also sporting a downy coating of hair (lanugo) that keeps him nice and warm. Not to worry — you won’t give birth to a monkey; baby fat will accumulate over the next few months and take over the function of keeping your baby warm and toasty —allowing most of that hair to shed.
