How far along? 14 weeks 
Total weight gain: I did not get on the scale this week – but I cannot say that I feel like I’ve gotten any BIGGER than I was just last week.  Although.. I could chalk that up to basically living in leggings.  You can’t exactly tell if you’ve gained weight if you don’t have to button your pants.
Maternity clothes?  Half and half.  Like I mentioned above – I’m all about pants of the legging kind (I’m team Leggings=Pants), and for the most part my tops fit okay.. so I am interchangeably in and out of both.     
Sleep:  I am sleeping like a baby!  I started having a snack (dry cereal or Greek yogurt) before bed and I have found this helps me sleep much better.  I’m so worn out by the end of the day – so I still try and sneak in an afternoon nap to get me at least through dinner.
Best moment this week:  I felt this little thing move around- so amazing!  I thought I felt it last week, but the other night I was laying in bed and felt he/she move!  I found myself holding my breath and unable to sleep for the hope to feel it again.
Worst Moment this week: I have found myself apologizing to Parker, Jolie, and Jordan many times this week.  I have such a short fuse for things right now (hormones!) and it feels like I’m about to pull my hair out one minute, and the next I’m gushing over my silly 2 year olds.
Miss Anything? Not really this week.  Sushi still gets me on a craving kick.               
Cravings: Still devouring every fruit and vegetable in sight!  Caesar salad, mango, and strawberries are my favorite.  Jolie and I can polish off an entire container of prepared Mango.. that’s about $10 worth in 3 minutes or less.  Half of the time the thought of meat is blech– chicken in particular.  If it is breaded or fried I’m good with it.  No leftovers for me, either.  << similar to how I was with the girls. 
Symptoms:  I thought for half a minute I was getting my energy back last weekend.  I totally thought wrong.  I feel more tired this week than I have any other time in this pregnancy.. rounding the corner of the first trimester, and please, someone tell me that it returns, soon?!  Oh.  And peeing 118 times a night.. and I’ve decided I’m going to wear a sports bra for the remainder of this pregnancy if my boobs don’t chill themselves out.
Looking forward to:  The news came out this week that our besties Ashley and Jarrett are expecting their first come July 11th (I felt like I was going to explode keeping my mouth shut!). They are hosting their gender reveal party this weekend – and we cant wait to see what they are having!  It will be fun to share this pregnancy with Ashley (she is 6 days ahead of me).

    Oh my gosh! You are adorable! I love your outfit and your little bump is just too cute!

  2. That is so fun that you and bestie are sharing this pregnancy! My best friend was pregnant with her third and was 5 weeks behind me. Once it was all said and done and Raegan was 1 week late and Barrett was 2 weeks early, our kids are 3 weeks apart ๐Ÿ™‚ Such a fun time for y'all!

  3. Ashley says:

    I'm thinking girl….your food cravings and aversions (chicken..blegh) were exactly like mine when I was pregnant with Avery. So GIRL because this is a completely scientific guess ๐Ÿ˜‰ hehe
    So happy for you guys! Life with three is lots of fun!

  4. Chelsea L says:

    So fun that you and your best friend get to be pregnant together! Your sweet babies will be even closer friends, so special!

  5. Sydney Hale says:

    You are looking so good Mama. I can only imagine how much fun it would be to be pregnant with my BFF at the same time. Sneak in naps where ever you can, too!

  6. Karra says:

    you're adorable!! Do your babes know that there's a babe in there? Rae still hasn't caught on about her new little sister coming.. she just says belly button lol and kisses it ๐Ÿ™‚ toddlers.

  7. Looking great mama! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love that scarf!!

  8. Oh my gosh, I had no idea Ashley was expecting!! Ah! So exciting! It is SO much fun to be pregnant with one of your best friends. I am so thankful for the bond that Lukas has with his friend Mason – they are 5 days apart! And I craved sushi SO MUCH with both pregnancies, but especially Lukas. I cured it with the fried calamari rolls ๐Ÿ™‚
