14 Weeks with Baby #3

I've made it to 14 weeks and I finally have a day to myself.
That means I have two seconds to myself to get a blog post up.

how far along? 14 weeks
how are you measuring? I was measuring 14 weeks at my 12 week 4 day appointment.  
size of baby? size of an orange
heartbeat? 145-150 bpm (I have a doppler and I use it pretty regularly) 
total weight gain/loss? a lot...I'm not going to post my weight gain every week. I don't want to get caught up in the numbers, but instead enjoy my last pregnancy.  
maternity clothes? I'm wearing both.  I can wear some of my regular pants, but they are too tight to be considered comfortable.  I have gone out and bought some more clothing, non maternity, that will last throughout and after.  I don't want to waste money on clothing I won't wear at all after the baby.   
sleep? I always sleep well.  I am pretty lucky in the fact that my bladder can hold out and even though it is completely full I can usually hold out until the morning before it wakes me up.  
food cravings? Satisfied my Texadelphia craving today for lunch.  It was awesome!
gender predictions? I have no clue.  I go back and forth every day. Our 20 week appointment is scheduled for Nov. 27th so we will find out then.  
What I'm feeling: I'm feeling very gross and totally pudgy these days.  I don't have a baby bump, but my tummy pokes out more.  With my counseling internship, school work, and career, I have completely fallen off of the working out routine.  It sucks and I can't wait to have time to breathe and work out again.  I have 7 weeks until graduation and I can not wait!  I have been super emotional and cry at just about anything...probably not a good time to critique anything I am doing because I may just cry.  I have been more nauseated this pregnancy than the past two and the only thing that made it better was eating more and more, especially carbs.  Can not get enough pasta, potatoes, and sweets.  Luckily, I think this is starting to pass so I can try to make better choices.  
How are the other kiddos?  We told them about the baby last week and they are sooooo excited.  Kaylee will come up to me all the time and tell me about things she is going to do once the baby gets here.  She keeps asking if she can help with ......  It is so cute and I cannot wait for her to be a big sister again.  Lucas has been happy about the baby, but I'm not sure he fully understands what is going to happen.
