14 Week Pregnancy Update: What a week!

New lows this week.. weight loss, a disappearing bump and a trip to the hospital.

Well, where to begin this week!  It’s definitely been the hardest so far of this pregnancy.  After our scan a week ago things really went down hill sickness wise.  I couldn’t keep any food down and ended up in hospital.  I’ve written a separate post about that though which is here if you fancy a read:

Hyperemesis Gravidarum: The pregnancy game changer

So, on to this week’s quiz

Weekly quiz

How far along? 14 weeks

How big is baby? Baby is the same size as a lemon!

Total weight gain/loss: I have lost 7lbs this week, meaning I weigh 7lbs less than my booking weight in total.

Maternity clothes? Nope, but I am living in comfy clothes at the moment.

Stretch marks? Not yet.

Sleep: I’m sleeping well at the moment but am having some really wierd, vivid dreams.  I’m still getting very tired during the day and am taking a nap when Harry does, although I’m managing to keep some food and drink down now I feel like I’m still struggling with the lack of energy, things like running up the stairs are leaving me exhausted and out of breath so I’m trying to pace myself as much as possible.

Best moment this week: Going 24 hours without vomiting after having the anti sickness injections!

Movement: Nothing yet, I’m pretty sure I started to feel the first flutters with Harry at about 16 weeks.

Food cravings: The first half of this week had literally no ‘safe foods’.  There was nothing that I wanted to eat or could keep down.  Since I’ve been out of hospital I’ve had very specific cravings, I’ve wanted salt and vinegar McCoys crisps and Frosties cereal.  I’ve also found that ice cold water is the easiest to drink and keep down.

Sickness: I think you are all sick of me going on about my sickness… 

Have you started to show yet: I had… but any sign of a bump seems to have disappeared this week.

Gender prediction: EVERYONE tells me it’s a girl because I feel so different to I did with Harry.  Part of me is starting to wonder if maybe it could be… I’m still on the fence though!

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On, last time I had to take my wedding ring off at around 34 weeks I think.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Very teary most of this week, and Alistair would probably tell you that I’ve been very hard to live with.

Weekly Wisdom: Trust your gut instinct.  I knew that I needed hospital treatment the first time I went to the doctors this week.  It took two more visits and a rather emotional phone call to get the treatment I needed.  When I got to the hospital they told me I should’ve been referred straight away.  If I get this bad again I will definitely trust my gut and get the help as soon as I need it.

Milestones: Not really a milestone I want to celebrate but it was a big event this week.  I had my first (and hopefully only) hospital admission for HG this week.
