Baby #2: 13 Weeks

7.21.2013


How Far Along: 13 Weeks

Size of baby: About the size of a lemon

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +4 I am thankful for no change this week. We hit up all of Jesse's favorite places before he left and I ate way too much!

Maternity Clothes:  Not yet but I'm sure I'll make the switch soon. It's getting harder and harder to find something to wear.

Gender: We scheduled our anatomy scan for the end of August so we will know for sure then. But I'm pretty certain I'll cave and go to an elective place in the next few weeks.

Movement: I've felt a few little taps and thumps.

Symptoms: This is the best week I've had yet. I haven't taken the anti-nausea medication in four days!! I've still had a few spells of nausea and vomiting but overall it is just so much more manageable! I'm hoping that this is not just a phase and that it will last.

Other than that, I still have some pretty strong aversions to certain foods. I usually love mexican food but the thought of it right now just makes me sick! We did have Chipotle this weekend and it was good but I don't see myself eating mexican food again for a long while. I also usually LOVE veggies but I'm having a hard time eating most of them. I've been eating a lot of plain salads and some raw veggies but cooked veggies are a definite NO!

Sleep: My sleep has been off since Jesse left but I don't consider it pregnancy related.

What I miss: We've had some massive tantrums around here the last two nights and I kept thinking how nice it would be to have a glass of wine in celebration of surviving them. ;) However, the thought of wine, beer, or any kind of alcohol makes me want to gag right now, so I guess I wouldn't technically say I miss it.

Cravings:  Ice water. This is so strange because I normally drink my water room temperature. I usually don't like ice at all and now I can barely drink anything without ice. I have also been craving chocolate milk and I have had some several times a week for the last few weeks. It's become my replacement for coffee.

Best Moment This Week: Scheduling the anatomy scan and making it to the second trimester

Shopping: I still haven't done any shopping but I did clean out the room that will be the nursery. Since we moved in it has been serving as Emerson's toy room and it was a complete disaster. I was able to get some shelves for Emerson's closet so that I could move most of the toys and books in there. I know I still have plenty of time to get the nursery done but I will probably go ahead and get started pretty soon after we find out the sex. I cannot wait!!

I craved icy cold stuff too! Tony started putting my milk in the fridge for like ten minutes before I drank it... best thing ever!!

Emily Powell said...

I'm going to guess girl! I loved ice water whenI was pregnant and had SO many aversions!

Natalie said...

I'm so glad you are feeling better...and look at that cute bump!

Lyndsey said...

Look at that cute little bump! I can't wait to find out what you're having - I'm guessing girl, but I was wrong with my last two friends so what do I know, ha! And hooray for having a semi-non-sick week!

What a cute bump! One of the biggest cravings I am having is anything ice cold. I can't get enough! It's probably this hot, hot summer!

Mandy said...

I don't have a prediction for what you're having yet (although I'm SORT of leaning towards another girl?? lol), but you look absolutely as beautiful as ever sweet friend!! Love your sweet, tiny bump!! So happy you are starting to feel less sick- praying that it stays that way. Love reading your weekly bump updates!
