I decided I am going to try this pregnancy update thing a few of my friends are doing, hopefully I can do it the whole time!!
How Far Along: 13 weeks, 5 days
Size of Baby: Weighs about .81 oz & measures about 2.9 inches from head to toe. This week my baby is forming teeth & vocal cords... savor this, their non-functional phase. Baby is approaching normal proportions, with a head now only one third the size of the body. Intestines are in the process of moving from the umbilical cord to the baby's tummy. (much more convenient)
Maternity Clothes: I made my first pair of maternity jeans about 2 weeks ago. I have decided that was the best make ever! I am so comfy & I don't even have to leave a button un-done to achieve that!! I have bought (thanks to Adam & my mom) 5-6 shirts most are a little big on me but good thing I'm growing so they'll fit perfectly or snug soon enough!!
Gender: We find out in 19 days! (not soon enough) I still have no idea what we're having. I want it to be a girl, but I will be happy if we're told we are having a boy. Adam really wants a boy but I think if we have a girl she would be wrapped around his finger & vise versa in a matter of seconds!
Movement: Nothing yet but hopefully very soon!!
What I Miss: Pizza & not getting a very good nights rest!
Sleep: In general I sleep pretty good at night thanks to Unisom & B12. I normally use the bathrrom right as my eyes are about to close & I can usually make it all the way through the night! The past week though I have had a rough time during the night & I have slept like crap which leaves me exhausted all day but I make it though ok....
Cravings: Pickles (Kosher-Dill Spears) & Cereal
Aversions: Pizza :( & anything with melted cheese (grilled cheese, quesadillas, pizza, Adam's favorite, etc), Ketchup (smell & taste)
Symptoms: Morning sickness in the morning now (verses the night), constant urge to pee like every 5 minutes! haha very achy lower back pain (because of the pregnancy & a fall I took at 6 weeks), the one time heart burn when i ate something spicy, the occasional charley horse that lasts about 1-2 minutes!!
Best Moment: Hearing the baby's heart beat for the first time at 12 weeks. Adam went with me to the doctor's appointment because we were gonna hear the babies heart beat for the first time. I know he was as happy as I was to hear that beautiful thumping noise but I also believe that he was just as nervous as I was that we wouldn't hear it!! For the first time I felt that this pregnancy was REAL, it was such a great feeling!!!
We can't wait to meet this little peanut!!
