How Far Along: 13 weeks
Size of Baby: Baby-to-be is almost 3 inches long (about the size of a pea pod) and weighs nearly an ounce.
Total Weight Gain: 2 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Not yet.
Movement: None yet
Sleep: Sleeping pretty good and am entertained nightly by vivid, crazy dreams.
Food Cravings: Not much. Nausea was pretty bad this week. Strawberries, crackers, and cottage cheese were staples.
What I Miss: Food tasting normal.
Symptoms: Nausea, acne, sciatica - basically I'm just a peach to live with these days. Adam and I have a running joke, either we "marriage" each other or "love" each other. I'm pretty sure he just "marriages" me right now.
Memorable Moments: Loved taking the kids to a doctor appointment yesterday where we got to hear the heart beat. They are so excited and love being part of everything. My friend Jaimie had her son Trevor last Thursday (so I guess technically this should have gone in last weeks post). I'm excited to get the cliff notes from her on handling three. ;) A midday nap with Declan on the couch - can't beat 4 year old snuggles! And...the arrival of Mimi yesterday afternoon!!
What I Am Looking Forward To: Saying good bye to the first trimester! It kind of kicked my ass this time. The NT ultrasound on Monday - we are bringing Mimi along with us! And a kid-free lunch with girl friends next week to celebrate Trevor.
