14 Weeks –


How far along? 14 weeks, 3 days. (although baby’s development is measuring at only 11 wks 6 days)
Total weight gain/loss: 3-4 lbs. +1 this week!
Maternity clothes? I pulled out a couple of capris I found in my closet this week. Along with some honeymoon clothes. Pretty sure I won’t be wearing those for awhile. 🙂
Sleep: Back on hormones for another couple of weeks….so, back to 3 hour naps and early bedtimes.
Best moment this week: Seeing our beautiful baby on an ultrasound. After thinking it was no longer alive. It was the most wonderful  thing ever.
Movement: not yet – but it kinda waved to us on the ultrasound. 🙂
Food cravings: banana pudding?
Anything making you queasy or sick: yes – cleaning bathrooms and taking out the trash.
Have you started to show yet: Yeeep – a tad.

Gender Predictions: still guessing a boy…

Labor Signs: YES. (thus the ultrasound) But for now, baby is staying put.
Belly Button in or out? IN
Wedding rings on or off? ON – Still on the right hand too! (That’s my bigger hand, and my rings haven’t been resized since I lost 30 pounds in the spring. So, they’re still too big for my left hand. Maybe I’ll be able to wear them the whole time this pregnancy?
Happy or Moody most of the time: This week was pretty tough.
Weekly Wisdom: Peace is something God gives freely when you trust in His plan. But joy is something you have to fight for.
Milestones: baby is as big as a plum – about 2 inches from head to rump. (And we celebrated our 8th anniversary!)

Exercise: I’m still on bed rest this week – really taking it easy.


About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!

  1. Kim,
    Keeping you ad you family in my thoughts and prayers. I truly know how difficult this is, I have been there with my own pregnancies and also my daughters.
    Know that ALL things work for the glory of God, even when we don’t see how. Trust and rely upon God, for he will carry you through. Even in the darkest of days, when you feel you cannot face another moment, He will be right there with you.
    May His gentle peace and endless grace fill your mind and hearts with boundless comfort. Blessing of joy be yours.
