13 Weeks

Wow, we are almost in the second trimester!!!!!!

Going forward, I am going to do this update every week!  Just to communicate and so I can remember our milestones!!!

How Far Along? 12 weeks 6 days (baby is measuring 13 weeks 3 days)

Maternity Clothes? no, I have been wearing my bigger jeans, but everything else fits fine!!!!  I did buy some though, in preparation of the next few weeks!

Weight Gain? I lost a few pounds in the beginning, but now I am just a few ounces below my pre pregnancy weight.  I think it has to do with still not consistently being hungry/being sick at night.

Stretch Marks? None yet. 
Sleep? Not good.  I have weird dreams and have to pee at least four times a night.
Best Moment of the Week? Starting to feel a little bump.  Until a few days ago, it was barely noticeable, now that it has moved up a bit Ray can tell there is a bump.

Movement? No, but other than finding out the sex, that is what I am most excited about!!!!!
Food Cravings? Soda.  It's weird, I didn't really drink much soda before, but now I crave it!  And cereal, I eat at least two boxes of cereal a week.  It is the only thing that sounds good for dinner and most nights, it is all I can stomach.

Gender? We will know in a few short weeks!!!

What I miss? Feeling normal.  I miss being able to make plans and not worry, will I be sick?  I have been a huge hermit this whole pregnancy, because my morning sickness is bad and it comes on quick.  It's worth it and I know others have it much worse, but I am just not a sick person, so this has been an adjustment for me!
Symptoms: Morning sickness, sore boobs, dizziness, constipation (I am just being honest), exhaustion and lots of peeing.
What I'm looking forward to? Finding out the sex, getting a bump, and feeling movement!
Weekly Wisdom: When your body tells you to relax, don't fight it.  I nap once a day on the weekends and I need it!!!!!
Milestones: 2nd Trimester!!!!!!!!!

Emotions: I am super excited to have gotten out of the danger zone (I know bad things can still happen, but the chances of that are much better).  I am worried about our ultrasound this week to see if my hematoma has gotten any smaller.  Our last u/s (two weeks ago) shown it had actually grown a little bit.  Last time I didn't want to freak out and jump to conclusions, but this time I am going to ask a million questions, so we know what the options are if this thing doesn't go away on its own.
You will notice my lovely pregnancy skin, my glow is not from pregnancy, it is from the extra grease I have generated on my face!!!!!


  1. Yay for 12 weeks!! I can't wait to get there! I can't believe you haven't gained any weight- I feel like a house and I'm only 9 weeks!

  2. Yay, so exciting! We are like pregnancy twins - you look like I did (think and barely showing:)) and I craved Coke like nothing else! I am now addicted to it and have had to work to cut it out again, as I barely EVER drank pop before pregnancy. And I ate cereal for dinner MANY nights! Crazy!

    BTW, this bad sleep is only the beginning, my dear:)....get ready to crave sleep so badly that you'd pay your entire life savings for just one 7-8 hour chunk of sleep:)...but you'd settle for 5 or 6. And you'd take out a loan to pay for one morning where you could sleep in as long as you'd like, I swear! Lol!

  3. Oh, that was "thin" not "think!"

  5. Love it! Congrats on 13 weeks! I can't believe you have not gained any weight...I feel like I am constantly eating to keep from being nauseous. My jeans barley button and I am only 10 weeks!

  6. Congrats on being 13 weeks! You are sooo tiny! I so hope that your nausea subsides soon. Mine really really went down around 13/14 weeks so I really hope you have the same luck.

  7. Congratulations on 13 weeks! I'm so very excited for you! You look fabulous - and you're such a good early pregnancy mentor for me. Thanks!

  8. Ok, I think you are smaller than me and I'm like 2 days preggo. I feel disgusting and terrified. I'm totally wondering if I just wanted it b/c it seemed like I couldn't have it! Too late now!

  9. OMG you look great!! Congrats momma!
