14 weeks!

Second trimester!!
I hit 14 weeks yesterday and it's great to be out of the first trimester. I wouldn't say I'm breathing any easier, but I'm hoping that I'll start feeling better soon.
Baby is approximately the size of a lemon - 3.5" long and weighs about 1.5oz.
I'm still not feeling great. Anything slightly sweet makes me feel so awful and yet I keep trying in hopes that one day soon I'll be over it. I can't sleep at all and am so exhausted, I would give anything for a solid night of sleep where I didn't have to wake up 4-5 times to pee (I don't even get this, it's not like the baby is interfering with my bladder, it's the size of a lemon!). I definitely feel quite big, I posted a picture below of me at almost the same point with Emma and I guess I’m not “that” much bigger, I’m just carrying a lot higher (which again makes so sense because the baby is WAY below my belly button).
I started feeling little movements around 12.5 weeks and just last night I could actually feel kicks. It’s pretty crazy to be feeling things so early, but I think this baby knows that I need to feel that to relax a little. My next ultrasound is in 2 weeks and we’re hoping to catch a glimpse of whether the baby is a boy or a girl, I’m really excited!

Pardon the look on my face, I was concentrating.
