i am 13 weeks today! finally, my last week of my first trimester is here. i’m almost 1/3rd through this pregnancy and i feel like it hasn’t even started yet! i love being pregnant and soaking up every minute of it. i took pictures today but i still don’t really have anything to show for it. i can definitely tell my uterus is starting to move up so hopefully in the next couple of weeks i will be sporting a (noticeable) cute little baby pump under those clothes! i wasn’t going to post bump updates but i decided i should because it would be fun for me to go back to them whenever i wanted and see the progress of my first little one. also, my friends and family who aren’t with me can keep up-to-date with it too! so here it goes starting today:
How far along? 13 weeks.
Baby’s size: the size of a peach!
Total weight gain: zero!
Maternity clothes? well, i haven’t bought any yet because i want to see what else they can come out with for a spring line but i’ve been on many, many sites eyeing up all the cute styles. i feel like they have cuter maternity clothes than they do regular clothes. it’s going to be tough to not buy it all.
Best moment this week: not much is happening this week. i can feel my lower abdomen tightening which is exciting because it’s going to start poking out soon. but not yet…..
Miss Anything? my abs. i worked so hard for them and now they are just….. not there.
Movement: i can’t feel anything yet and probably wont for a couple more weeks.
Food cravings: i had a HUGE craving for mexican food last week but other than that i’ve been eating pretty normally. i am finally allowing myself to eat poptarts and not feel guilty about it so maybe that’s been a craving too because i’ve been eating them like everyday.
Anything making you queasy or sick: i’ve been drinking tea and eating apples to try and keep my energy level up since i can’t have much coffee but i’ve randomly tried to have a small cup a day when i have to wake up at 4am for work. however, today i had one sip and started to gag. ugh come on baby, i need my coffee.
Gender: don’t know yet :( I’ve been DYING to know. it’s way to early for them to even tell but i’m thinking about going to get a gender reveal ultrasound on the side so i can find out earlier. i’m not sure if it will work out with our schedule but i’m going to try because i can’t wait another month and a half.
Symptoms: fortunately, i’ve been feeling great! i didn’t get sick once during my first trimester, my energy level is coming back, i’ve been able to exercise everyday the past 2 weeks and my breasts don’t hurt anymore. however, i do have to go to the bathroom 20 times a day (and night) and i get really crampy when i lay down to go to sleep. some nights i can sleep through the whole night and other nights i am tossing and turning for hours. it’s frustrating.
Belly Button in or out? definitely still in.
Looking forward to: a little bump making it’s appearance! i am really excited to actually look pregnant ;) haha
on another note, thank goodness it’s tuesday because yesterday was rough. i complained a lot because i’ve become a big baby lately and need my rest or i become cranky. the rain obviously didn’t help either. it’s a new day though and i woke up in a great mood. i love when that happens.
