Week 14

I have reached the second trimester with Olive!

She should be about 3 1/2 inches long, that is about as long as a lemon.

"This weeks 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." (Source)

Olive is still growing, and becoming more proportionate. She is beginning to grow lanugo, a fine type of hair, all over her body. More organs are beginning to do their jobs, and Olive is supposed to be more flexible and active. 

Maternity Clothes: Nope, not yet. Though I am beginning to stop wearing some of my normal clothes.

Symptoms: Headaches and occasional nausea.

Changes to Mommy: Still, a growing bump. Morning sickness might have begun to wane.

Food Cravings: At the moment~ Something with lemon. Usually it will be something that I see the word or a picture and want it. Or we are having something similar, but don't have that one thing. Like OEC chicken fried rice with pink sauce... had some chicken fried rice but no sauce. 

Milestones? Made it to the second trimester!


  1. Now that is a grandbaby picture I can get with. All grandbabies need a big yellow tonka truck to move their wood blocks from under the bed back to the toy box.

  2. Dad will treat to OEC next time you are here! And you don't have to share!

  3. I'll bet we could come up with a bag of lemon drops...I will get Greg to check his pockets!
