I guess it’s time to finally document the pregnancy itself. I’m starting to get a bump that both my husband and I can see (my husband EVER SO NICELY told me the other day that my belly is sticking out farther than my boobs… which doesn’t mean a whole lot since I don’t have a whole lot up top, but whatever). I know I’ll look back on my pregnancy and want to see the changes and if I was EVER lucky enough to get pregnant again, be able to compare them. So this is the first Bumpdate at 13 weeks. I’m a bit late because in just two days, I’ll be 14 weeks, but whatever. I won’t be doing these every week, but will hopefully do every other week.
We went to Ruby Beach over the weekend and that’s where I took the photo. My ass really isn’t that large, but I had my phone, etc in my back pocket. This picture was taken at 13 weeks, 2 days.
How Far Along? 13 weeks, 2 days when the picture was taken
Size of Baby? 2 1/2 – 3 inches (size of a peach)
Maternity Clothes? Pants, yes. Tops, some, though I have many regular tops that will work as well.
Weight Gain? About four pounds
Stretch Marks/belly button? Nope, too early.
Baby’s Sex? Won’t know until October. Finally started feeling that it was a boy the other day… haven’t felt one way or another before. We’ll see.
Sleep? I’m finally only getting up once a night instead of 3-4. I know it’ll change back in the future, but it’s nice to have a bit of a break.
Food Cravings? More like food aversions. I don’t like sweet stuff… except one or two glasses of chocolate milk a day. And I have an aversion to anything fried.
Best Moment This Week? Seeing the Skipper (our new nickname for baby) at our first NT scan. S/he was kicking, squirming, giving us a high five and sucking his/her thumb.
What I am loving? Just having this opportunity to be pregnant.
Movement? No, but I’m excited to… hopefully within the next month to six weeks.
What I’m looking forward to: Just the pregnancy continuing and feeling movement one day.
Other Updates… Nothing really. I’ll blog about the wonderful first NT scan and the horrible second one (Skipper didn’t cooperate so we had to have a second) later.
