How far along: 13 weeks 2 days
Maternity clothes: Not yet, but I have used my hair bands as a belly band. I am trying to hold out as much as possible. I’m eyeing these cute clothes I saw at Kohls in Vegas though.
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: This week I am definitely a lot less sleepy than the first trimester. I have been waking up in the middle of the night a lot and can’t go back to sleep. My dreams are so crazy and super emotional. I feel so anxious about everything! (Work doesn’t help.)
Best moment this week: Making it to this week. After miscarrying before, every week is a miracle. Also, having Mike on day shift has been great for night-time because we actually get to sleep together at the same time. I sleep so much better when he is home!
Have you told family & friends: Slowly. I am typing this before we tell everyone and leaving it as a draft. Mike says he wants to be the one to drop the bomb and claims within the next few days he is going to do it. Silly guy. I have told a few of my students and co workers at work because my clothes are kind of giving it away. I never realized how most of my clothes were form-fitting.
Miss anything: Mountain biking and races. I love having something to train for. Also, SUSHI!
Morning sickness: None at all. I was a little nauseous for a while, but never enough to think of throwing up. I am very lucky.
Movement: Nothing to be felt yet… but at my ten week heart monitor check, I heard the heart beat for a second and then it would keep disappearing because the baby was moving around. Hyperactive maybe?
Food cravings: SPICY food, garlic, grilled cheese, and grapes.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Microwave food for a while. Today I actually made a microwave meal and ate it without feeling disgusted. The thought of Teriyaki Chicken makes me sick.
Have you started to show yet: A little bump..mainly in the evening after work. It pretty much looks like I am fat, not pregnant.
Gender prediction: Boy
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: Off. I gave up a while ago because I was retaining water so bad. I don’t want to risk it.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy until about eight o clock when its time for bed. Then I am cranky. 🙂
Looking forward to: The next ultrasound and doctor visit so we can have a peace of mind.
