14 Week Belly

I think this post needs a little disclaimer in order to resolve my guilt.


The above photo is a true life example of what my bedroom looks like in its current state.

Normally, this would embarrass me to no end and would not be posted on my blog. But morning sickness will do strange things to a person. I just don't care. Or, at least, I didn't, when this picture was taken a few days ago.

Its on my list of "things to do today", believe me. I am FINALLY feeling better. Nope, my morning sickness hasn't decided to pack up its bags and leave. Nope, instead, my CNM (who I will be seeing for my 14 week visit on Tuesday, but not delivering with) wrote me a prescription for 8 mg of zofran a day.

Bless her.

Who knew that 8 was so much better than the measly 4 mg I had been taking? And who knew that it would last most of the day in my system and therefore be much cheaper to purchase in that quantity?

The most important thing is that I can take care of my kids again. I can leave the house with them and not worry about public vomiting. I can cook again! I have the desire to eat again!! (to this date, I have not gained a single pound during my pregnancy, which is pretty much unheard of for me. I gained 12-15 pounds with both Jaina and Jayce by the end of the first trimester). And I also am starting to have the motivation to clean again.

Anyway, so, I could either take pictures of my 14 week belly now with a messy house or wait until next week when I find the time to tackle each room with a deep cleaning vengeance.

What the hell :)


As you can see in the background, I *do* own a vacuum and will be using it today, I promise!


Soon I won't be able to see my feet from this view!


And here's the total package. I certainly feel bigger than I look in this photo, though!

And there you have it. Expect a much bigger belly next time! But hopefully my face, arms, and thighs will stay the same. Highly doubtful, but hopeful, nonetheless!

  2. So exciting! Way to go about not caring about not keeping up because you shouldn't. I'm getting there, but it's hard for me to admit that that does happen around here. I should just get over it!!! We don't live in a museum!

    Hope you feel better and better!!

  4. You look great, and so happy! You'd never know from looking at the picture of you that you've been miserably sick. I hope the 8mg continues to work so well.

    And by the way HP was awesome! Action packed through the whole movie!

  7. You are beautiful!!! I'm glad the up in Zofran is helping you cope. Hopefully within the next month the morning sickness with subside. What a yucky part of pregnancy! Confession time: My bedroom looks like that right now and probably will until I get the motivation to get the baby's bassinett up in our room! Haha I asked my husband to hire a cleaning person until after delivery ;)
