14 Weeks

While I know that I am not really that big, I feel huge.  I think the difference is that at this point with Genghis I was not showing yet.  Everyone said you show sooner with the second baby.  Man, they were not joking.

I am 14 weeks today and officially in my second trimester.  I am done with the progesterone and no longer on pelvic rest.  Both of which make me happy.  All in all I feel pretty good.  The nausea has subsided and while I still have bad days, I am feeling much better.  Now if my energy would return, I would be set.

This week baby is about 3.5 inches long and weighs around 2 ounces. The hands are fully functional and can make a fist. The neck has grown longer and the chin no longer rests on the chest. Baby is now receiving all nourishment from the placenta.
