And we have a bump picture! I will be skipping week 14 as I accidentally deleted my post, and I forgot to take a pic. Will is now assigned to take weekly photos after church going forward, and I bought a tripod, so we should be in business from here on out. I hope to post my 15 week update on Tuesday, and make that the official day for updating from here on out.
How Far Along: 13 weeks.
Size of Baby: Baby is the size of a peach. All of these fruit comparisons are making me miss Summer even more. Can’t wait until the weather warms up and we can go to the Farmer’s Market.
Gender: Still at a loss on this one. I was hoping I’d get some type of sign or inclination, but so far, no dice.
Weight Gain: Up 4 pounds total so far.
Feeling: Good for the most part. Still a walking zombie by about 9pm, and experiencing some pretty serious evening nausea.
Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but I need to buy some maternity pants ASAP. My “bump” is basically nonexistent, but after I eat a large meal, I can barley fit into my pants. Even with the belly band. Not sure why after I eat my stomach literally doubles in size, but I’m over trying to accommodate it in my regular clothes. It hasn’t really been an issue since I’m normally at home in sweats after dinner…until now. Last night when we were out for Valentine’s Day, I thought my jeans were going to rip right in the middle of dinner.
Nursery: Waiting until we know the sex to make any purchases. We went to Baby’s R Us last week and found a pretty great glider. I want to go to Buy Buy Baby some time in the next couple of weeks to scope out their selection too.
Movement: Too early.
Symptoms: Fatigue and nausea. Being generally uncomfortable in the stomach area. Neck and back pain.
Sleep: My favorite thing.
Cravings: Nothing really.
What I Miss: Energy. It kind of stinks not being able to drink wine when we go out to dinner, but honestly my tastes have changed so much during this pregnancy, I don’t even know that wine would taste good to me at this point.
Best Moment This Week: Being in the second trimester. Getting positive results to our first trimester screening.
Looking Forward To: Getting another ultrasound and finding out the gender. Meeting (and hopefully loving) our new OB practice.
Thankful For: Health for me and Baby G, Will being the most supportive husband ever, and being another week along.
