14 weeks & pregnancy dreams

I am officially into my 2nd trimester!!! Today marks day 2 of the 3, and all I can say is thank GOD I made it! 2nd Trimester starts the weight gaining from what I hear - so bring on the hostess cupcakes and pasta! Kidding of course -- but only kinda kidding.
So pregnancy dreams -- I had the scariest pregnancy dream last night. Last week I had a lot of them where Nick was cheating on me. I'd find a plethora of pictures of girls that were saved onto the desktop of our computer and I confronted him and he'd be like "Yeah, so?" No remorse outta the guy. So those dreams of course sucked. But this dream last night was one like no other. Pretty much long story short: I went in for an ultrasound to find out the sex and there was this serpent like tail coming from between it's legs. In my dream, I for some reason thought this was totally normal and it must be a boy. The doctor thought it was bad, like any normal person would. Later that night, I ended up having cramping, and I gave birth to this huge toddler size baby, but it was too early for it to come out and it wasn't breathing. I was screaming at Nick to give it mouth to mouth, but he couldn't save it. I woke up from this horrible dream, felt my belly, and thanked God it was only a dream (from Hell!!).
So back to happy things, I'm 14 weeks today!! My baby bean -

How your baby's growing:
This week's big developments: Your baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb! Thanks to brain impulses, his facial muscles are getting a workout as his tiny features form one expression after another. His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him — a process he'll keep up until birth. He can grasp, too, and if you're having an ultrasound now, you may even catch him sucking his thumb.

They also say my baby bean is now the size of lemon and just to blow your minds, here is a comparison to a quarter

How far along- 14 weeks

How big is the baby- He/she measures 3 1/2 inches — about the size of a lemon — and weighs 1 1/2 ounces

Weight gain? Still not much that I can see. The belly size differs day to day

Stretch Marks? Belly is still looking good!

Maternity Clothes? Not really. Still wearing my maxi dresses! I did however buy my 1st pair of maternity pants for work and 1 pregnancy t shirt

Sleep? still like a baby. Although I have been waking up around 3:30AM, so that puts a damper on things

Best Moment of the Week? Getting in my scheduled workouts - WOO HOO! Gotta keep active

Food Cravings? Sweet tarts and any sort of sour candy is the choice this week. Also coldstone was the victim of choice :)

Name? well we aren't sure on the sex yet, but if it's a girl it will be Olivia Karen (middle name for my mom) and if it's a boy Liam Maximus

Movement? Not that I can feel yet :( but I tickle my belly and push on it constantly in hope I'll get a flutter or 2. I've heard this is the week I can start feeling tiny butterflies

What I Miss? SUSHI!!! Someone brought some for lunch at work, and I want some dang it!

Fun Fact? That nasty nausea phase is ova' & I get the baby furniture on Sunday!!!

I can't believe you dropped the "Anne" for your girl name! But I guess it's ok for you to do your own thing... I will eventually forgive you... JK, you're forgiven! :)
