13 Weeks! Hello 2nd Trimester!

13 Weeks! Hello 2nd Trimester!

Well, we have officially made it to the 2nd trimester! Hey 13 weeks, hey! Let’s hope my energy levels bounce back soon!

I took these pictures Monday, which was technically the last day of W12…but whatev.  I wore leggings and a dress and was looking particularly bump-y.  I think most days I just still look like I ate a big lunch…but I’ll take the “pregnant” look when I can. ha!

This week, baby is the size of (let’s see all the things the apps say) a peach, a jalepeno, a clownfish, and a matchbox car. Let’s go with the car.

How far along? 13 Weeks

Total weight gain: 5-6ish pounds? I’ve had QUITE the appetite this week. I’m trying to eat mostly healthy for 2 meals a day, and let myself indulge in a craving for a third meal.

Maternity clothes? My motto is still: If it’s not stretchy, I’m not wearing it.  I’m wearing more and more maternity bottoms. Still lots of regular tops.  I wore a regular dress on Easter and Monday to work.

Sleep:This week, I’ve been having LOTS of 3 a.m. pee breaks in the middle of the night. Not my fave. I wake up feeling SO sleepy.

Best moment this week: Planning the gender reveal party! Woop!

Miss anything? I miss sinus meds. I am getting better (thanks to the Neti Pot and some mulled grape juice) but still annoyed at my lack of clear nasal passageways.  I know Mucinex would help, if only I could take it.

Movement: Nope. Too early for that.

Food cravings: Had some pickle days when a sour pickle sounded good.  Found out a BBQ place here has unlimited pickles on their condiments bar- so game on.  I’ve wanted lots of beef (chicken doesn’t sound good most days). I also had a STRONG hankering for cheese sticks yesterday- and Olive Garden came through at lunch.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Getting too hot/eating sugar alone. Easter morning I had a cinnamon roll for breakfast and then went and sang in the choir. It was warm packed on the risers with the stage lights- and between the two I was queasy feeling.

Gender: We will find out in three weeks!  I’m hearing half and half- “Oh, I’m saying boy!” or “I think it’s a girl.”  At this point, only God knows!

Symptoms: Runny, stuffy nose.  Had a headache this week.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty good week.  I cry at sentimental things easier, but overall pretty happy.

Looking forward to: Tyler is taking two days off this week to clean the office. Hallelujah! The guest room has to be combined with the office in the next month or so- then nursery planning can begin!

So that’s it!  13 weeks and going.
