14 weeks = a lemon.

How far along: 14 weeks 3 days
Total weight gain/loss: I'm down 1 pound on my scale - we will see what the DR's scale says on Friday.
Maternity clothes: here and there - I got a new shirt from Kohl's the other day for $3.00!
New baby items: nothing new - we've been checking out double strollers and cribs but haven't made any purchases just yet.
Sleep: terrible - the cyst on my left ovary has been causing me so much pain I can't even sleep on my left side - my options are already limited so now it's either my right side or my back
Best moment this week: watching Gavin and Gabby play together; seeing Gabby roll over for the first time =)
Movement: not yet - I'm really excited to feel Gum Drop move, just so I know he/she is okay in there!
Food cravings: fresh fruit.
Gender: Boy, but I could be wrong - don't forget to cast your vote on the left side!
Labor Signs: no thanks..
Belly Button in or out: in.
What I miss: sleeping on my tummy, my old clothes, my cute little tiny cherry tattoo is now growing again.
What I am looking forward to: my next prenatal visit Friday =)
Weekly Wisdom: Dream big.
This week's big developments: Your baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb! Thanks to brain impulses, his facial muscles are getting a workout as his tiny features form one expression after another. His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him — a process he'll keep up until birth. He can grasp, too, and if you're having an ultrasound now, you may even catch him sucking his thumb.
14 weeks 3 days
I think my belly shows more in this photo (yes, I'm striking a pose for myself in the mirror but I will love having these photos 10 years from now!!  I already love looking through all my belly photos from Gabby.)

Time is going to fast.
When things get crazy around here, I often think of you and how crazy busy you will be. Everything happens for a reason and you will be great with all 3 kids. 2 kids to 3 kids is easier than 1-2.

Sorry to hear that your being bothered by a yucky cyst. Dang things just can't even stop not even when your pregnant. I hope it gets to feeling better.

I'm glad your doing good otherwise. 14 weeks already. Crazy!
