13 Weeks!

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.

  1. Liz! I am so happy for you guys! I remember you leaving a comment on my blog a while ago saying that you were trying, so I’ve been keeping up on your blog hoping for an announcement like this one. I am glad your pregnancy has been good so far, and I hope it stays that way. Congrats, and you look great!
