Week 14 Bump Update

Guys. This past week was pretty meh. Eric's dad left, and we don't like when visitors leave. We also spent our beautiful Saturday morning at the vet with Nym... again... because she now has an infection. Her leg is healing well, but she has been chewing on her paw incessantly. Then, she started scratching her face, and on Friday night, she broke out in a huge red rash all over her belly. My poor girl :( Back on the antibiotics she goes.

We DID go to see Deadpool and get some food at Yard House with our friends Eric and Keely yesterday after the vet. It felt SO GOOD to get out of the house and see people and do things like my old self again (minus the beer :(). My verdict: entertaining, pretty funny, but not as hilarious or amazing as everyone said. I'd still recommend seeing it though. Definitely my favorite of all the "superhero" movies.

The neighborhood has been swarming with people for the Honda Classic this week. If you don't know what that is, you need to either step up your golf game or move to Palm Beach Gardens. EVERYONE in Palm Beach Gardens knows about the Honda Classic. It's the town's claim to fame. I happen to live in PGA National, HOME OF THE HONDA CLASSIC, whoop di doo. The most famous golfers in the world are floating around my neighborhood right now for this tournament, and yet all I see are a bunch of asshole tourists in visors and polos attempting to cross the road in the MIDDLE OF A CIRCLE to take pictures with some Honda cars. Come on now, people.

Anyway, I am 14 weeks in to pregnancy world as of today. I have given my mom "rules" about what to buy for my kid, because I don't want her to go overboard buying things, and Eric and I DEFINITELY have different taste in children's clothing. Example: My mom would love to dress a little boy in a peter pan-collared blouse with suspenders, knee socks, and saddle shoes. Think Prince George. We, on the other hand, would love to dress a little boy in a beanie, a band shirt, and Converse Chuck Taylors or moccasins. She went "baby window shopping" with her friend (who is also expecting a grandbaby due around the same time as mine!). They weren't going to buy anything, but they saw THIS:
Little rock star rebel overalls! HOW COOL!
I am proud of my mom for actually buying something for my child that probably makes her cringe. Ya done good, Mom.

How far along? 14 weeks
Total weight gain: I don't know, but I think I am starting to gain. I definitely look more bloated, which I must remind myself is NOT FAT, it's a baby. I am trying hard to eat, and to start eating well again. I'm pretty active at work chasing around the kiddos (little man is moving and climbing everywhere now!). I have a doctor appointment on Friday, so I'll find out if I am getting on track with the weight gain.
Maternity clothes? No. I torture myself by going in to Target and looking at all the cute clothes I can't buy because I know they won't fit me soon, then walking over to the maternity section and looking at all the cute clothes that don't fit me yet. I JUST WANT TO GO SHOPPING FOR MYSELF.
Stretch marks? Not yet
Sleep: No. Hahahaha. My dreams are CRAZY. I wrote about my most recent wacky dreams this week, but didn't share it on Facebook for fear that someone would try to commit me to a psych ward. Feel free to check out the post here, as long as you remember this is a No Judgement Zone. It gets pretty weird, guys. Prettyyyyy weird.
Best moment this week: Going out and seeing Eric and Keely yesterday! I AM A NORMAL HOOMAN AGAIN!!!
Miss anything? Beer. I'm not opposed to having one sip of Eric's or something, but I just don't see the point in that. It's torture to take a sip and like it and not be able to drink more. I swear I'm not an alcoholic. I just really miss everything about beer. Going to local breweries, trying interesting new beers, enjoying a couple with friends without feeling hungover the next day... I thought I'd miss wine most, but I really miss beer. And I always miss family and friends from up north, obviously.
Movement: Nope
Food cravings: I need to have a bagel and cream cheese for breakfast. I get really sad if I can't. But besides that, nothing crazy that I've NEEDED right that second. Still just having aversions.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still the usuals: peanut butter, chicken, and sweet smells. But I am starting to be more okay with sweets. 
Gender: Little dude
Labor signs: No
Symptoms: Some of those round ligament growing pains. Aversions. The nausea will randomly hit me hard, but I have more good days than bad now. Headaches. The sore boobs and acne have gotten better over the past week, so it better stay that way...
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: MOODY. I have been very irritable this week. I don't think it's right to discount the feelings of pregnant women and chalk them up to "being hormonal," but I know I've been moody this week.
Looking forward to: Linny visiting in a couple weeks, going to Disney, going home in April, and picking stuff out for the baby's room! We aren't going to start decorating until after our trip in April, but I think we have a theme and colors picked out :)
