13 weeks

Emily TuckerComment
  • How far along: 13 weeks, 2nd Trimester
  • Weighty Issues: I haven't weighed myself in about a week but I gained back about a pound that I had lost from morning sickness
  • Stretch Marks: None that I can see yet but I'm pretty diligent about slathering myself with cocoa butter
  • Sleep: Some days its hard for me sleep, mainly due to general uncomfort and my laziness to get up to pee. Interestingly I used to only need between 6-7 hrs of sleep but now I really need around 8 hours
  • Best Moment this week: My hubs being such a champ at fulfilling my cravings
  • Food Commentary: Morning sickness is basically gone now! Lots of different cravings that don't seem to go away until they are fulfilled
  • Maternity Clothes: I've been wearing a mix of maternity and regular shirts. Mostly only maternity pants and some regular jeans unbuttoned, skinny and straight styles haven't been worn in months now :(
  • Belly Button In or Out: Still in, but mine is kinda a inny/outey so it does seem to have stretched a bit
  • What I miss: Actually liking Chipotle, since prego it tastes weird to me. Also missing salami and blue cheese two items pre-prego I ate almost weekly are on the do not eat list. Straight jeans... 
  • What I'm looking forward to: Finding out the sex of the baby and continuing to get bigger cause right now I kinda just look fat. To finally be able to work out now that I'm not sick all the time
  • Weekly Wisdom: I must work out!
  • Weekly WTH:  My ears are sooo stuffed up I can barely hear!!
  • Nesting: Organizing and chucking stuff we don't need. Set up baby's co-sleeper only so I would have a spot for all baby things to be located
  • Milestones: Baby is the size of a peach! Vocal chords and bones are forming. Baby can now suck its thumb.
