How far along? 13 weeks! Almost to the second trimester!
(most books/sites say week 13/14 is actually the second trimester)
Total weight gain/loss? Gained a half pound, but still down 3 lbs overall from my original weight.
Maternity clothes? My mom has been hooking me up!! She finds all sorts of cute maternity tops all over Las Vegas! I’m loving them all! And even though I don’t technically need maternity tops yet, I’m wearing them anyway because they are just too adorable!! For those looking for affordable (and cute) maternity clothes, check out Ross and Burlington!
None yet, at least none from the bean, that is. And still greasing myself up every morning to TRY and help…
Sleep? Still falling asleep on couches at night…but the last two nights, I haven’t had my usual nausea when moving from couch to bed. Keeping my fingers crossed that this Tilt-A-Whirl ride is finally coming to an end!
Best moment last week? Announcing little bean online via video! I/we came up with the concept and props and got her filmed in about an hour in 20 degree weather and it came out more than perfect! If you missed it, watch it here! And walking into Babies R Us…overwhelming, but exciting.
Movement? Not yet.
Food cravings? Still fruit. Always fruit. And anything cold!! And milk, which makes me constantly say to myself, “WTF?!” I don’t generally like or tolerate milk.
Symptoms? Nausea seems to be tapering off, but I’m not counting my chickens before they hatch. Still have aversions to some foods, but I did eat some veggies last night without issue. Still zits…always zits.
Gender? I’m still feeling boy!
Labor signs? Nope.
Belly button in/out? In.
What I miss:
Still Coke and Moscato…no surprise there.
What I am looking forward to: Finding out gender…still…
The bean is the size of a peach now and just about 3 inches! Bean can make facial expressions and is moving all around. Little bean might be growing hair too! Actually, it’s definitely growing hair…he/she comes from hairy people!
