14 Weeks

Taking pictures of yourself in the mirror is a lot harder than I thought it would be!

I think I can safely call my tummy a baby bump now, instead of just a muffin top! Things are going well. It's funny how as soon as I passed by that 3 month mark, I am feeling a lot better. Well, actually it's more like one day I am full of energy and in full nesting mode - cleaning house and taking no prisoners. And then the next day I am asleep on the couch again. Oh well, I take what I can get when I can get it.
Macaroni and cheese is still my #1 go to meal. It has to be Kraft spirals - not just the regular elbow shaped noodles. I hope the baby doesn't come out orange! But then again, it is a Wisconsin baby at heart so it will naturally love cheese.... even if it is artificial and powdered.
We have an ultrasound to find out what we are having on December 22nd.
I am not digging the pregnancy brain - forgetting things within seconds - or the weird dreams. I have already dreamt that I gave birth to a puppy, and then last night's dream was about zombies. I love my dogs like they are my kids, but I would really rather prefer a baby than a puppy!
This past weekend, the bump and I traveled to Chicago. Friday was spent with one of my good friends and her 5 year old daughter. We had the full American Girl Doll experience. Wow! That was crazy! Then Saturday, I met my Mom, Sister-in Law, her sister, and my nephew who had taken a bus trip down from Wisconsin. I did a lot of walking those 2 days!!! My big purchase in the big city was a new skin care kit from Philosophy. I had been using Proactiv for about 2 years, but noticed it either left my face an oil slick, or a dry flaky mess. Throw in pregnancy hormones and there's a whole new crop of problems. I haven't even been using this new system for a week yet and I can already notice a HUGE difference in my skin!!! I love it!!!
Well, that's what is new with me lately.

Are you getting sick yet of everyone telling you that you glow? You look gorgeous :) So which kit did you buy from Philosophy? I'm looking for a new line...

I never once took a picture of my evolving bumps. I regret that now. I felt that I had lumps to begin with and it wasn't the cute bump that you have. You are adorable, Heather! That whole pregnancy brain gets no easier once you have the baby... it seems to be a permanent condition. But it is a good trade off! Let me know if that ultrasound shows a cheesehead. LOL! Enjoy the day!

Thank you everyone! Mellisa - I bought the "makeup option" kit. It looked like the best basic kit for combination skin.

Opps, I meant to say "makeup optional"... the goal of the kit is to get your skin looking so good you don't need makeup.

I'm so happy for you Heather! Take care and sneak in as many naps as you can, they aren't so easy to come by once the baby arrives.
