13 Weeks

How far along:  13 weeks, 5 days
Size of Baby P:  2.91 inches, 0.81 ounces (according to Pregnancy App)
Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center):  Kiwi
Gender:  Too early to know.  Our nurse said the baby's heartbeat sounded like a female heartbeat.  Jason and I both think boy.  I dreamed we had a girl last night.  The Chinese Gender Predictor said boy.  Basically, who the heck knows!
Showing:  Mostly just from weight gain, not from baby, but I'm starting to get a little bump
Maternity clothes:  Some, mostly in pants and jeans for comfort
Unglamorous body changes:  Just weight gain at this point.
Sleep:  Pretty good.  Usually up 1-2 times a night to pee.  Also have been waking up in the middle of the night, around 4:30am, wide awake and wanting lemonade.
Movement:  I feel tiny flutters only when I lay down at night.  Doctor said it certainly could be the baby by now.
Food cravings:  Mexican food always, lemonade
Anything making you queasy or sick:  No!
Wedding rings on or off:  On
Mood: Moody.  I sobbed during The Walking Dead and am getting a little snippy at people who continue to comment on my pregnancy.  I never realized how closed off I am at work.  I don't like talking about myself in the workplace, yet that's all anyone wants to talk, how I'm feeling, my growing belly, what I should be doing, etc.  This is one part of pregnancy I dislike.
Best moment this week:  Hearing Baby P's heartbeat for the first time today! 
Strange experiences:  I had the most weird, vivid dream last night of giving birth.  In the dream, childbirth was a horrible experience, but the good news is that she was gorgeous!
Milestones:  Not being able to fit into 95% of my pants and transitioning into maternity pants.
Looking forward to:  Having a more prominent baby belly so it doesn't just look like I'm bloated.  I know it's my own insecurities and I probably need therapy, but I'm constantly wanting to notify people that I'm not fat, just pregnant.  I feel like their eyes are judging me.

Also, I'm really, really looking forward to learning the gender.  Then we can decide on names, nursery, and start buying precious, precious baby clothes!  There is so much to look foward to I can't even begin to list it all!

Jason and I tried to take "bump" pictures of me this week, but again, I just looked fat so I'm not posting them.  I guess I'm going to be more of a "Jessica Simpson" pregnant person rather than a "Giselle."  Go figure.  If only Weight Watchers would give me an endorsement deal after the baby...


  1. This is all so exciting. And yes, the comments are the worst. I hated the feeling that I was just "the keeper of the belly" and not a person anymore. Ugh. That is very frustrating - especially for someone like you who has so many varied interests.

    And by the're making me want to have another baby. Craig is very thankful for your blog posts, I'm sure. :)

    1. should totally have another one! Then we can be super hormonal together at Blissdom this spring!

  2. Who can blame a pregnant girl for sobbing during is week's Walking Dead? That was traumatic! But, I'm pretty sure you won't give birth post-zombie apocalypse so nothing to worry about!

    PS- HATE the new American Horror Story. Didn't even make it through the first episode... Maybe I judged too quick but it wasn't for me!

    1. Haha! About to sit down and watch it tonight...hopefully it's not quite so emotional! I agree that AHS is not as good this season. Loved it last season. We are still sticking with it, but it's VERY disturbing.
