13 Weeks!

IMG_7707How far along? 13 Weeks!  I’m so excited that I’m officially in the second trimester!  Bring on my energetic, healthy feeling former self!  I’ve heard these three months are going to be my best months, so I’ve got plans to do the start/decorate/finish the nursery.  Also, I am very thankful Christmas falls within this time frame, I can’t wait for it already!

Total weight gain: No weight gain from last week, I’m still at plus 6.5lbs.

Baby is the size of: A peach!! One of my apps says a jalapeño, which I love!  She still weighs less than an ounce, which blows my mind.  The placenta only weighs an ounce now, and it’s going to be 2lbs by the end of this.

Gender Guess: Girly girl.

Maternity clothes? Jeans, yes!  I think I’d like some maternity underwear for this ever expanding bum of mine.  We’re going to Prince George in two and a half weeks, so I’m planning on some shopping then.

Stretch marks? Noooope. (But my mom said I should start putting stretch mark cream on my boobs, which I thought was hilarious…and true.)

Sleep: Never less then 8 hours, but I’m awake many times through the night.  I’ve been wondering about those pregnancy pillows.  Everyone seems to love them and say it helps them sleep better.  BUT they look huge and invasive and they’re expensive.  If you’ve tried one can you leave a comment and tell me what you thought?

Best moment this week: Getting to 13 weeks!

Miss Anything? I pretty much eat and drink everything I want, so no.  I do limit to two cups of coffee/tea a day, so I wish I didn’t have to think about it.

Food cravings: McDonalds french fries.  I’ve been thinking about them for days.  I can’t indulge though, we don’t have a McDonalds!  Only an A&W, which Shane got me a few week back but are definitely not the same.  Cheese, all the cheese.

Movement: No, I wish.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing in particular.

Symptoms: My morning sickness has fluctuated a lot this week.  Sometimes I didn’t feel it at all and some days it never went away, even in the evening.  This week I also had terrible acne and chest acne (ew!), some fatigue (yesterday I went to bed at 8:30 and slept for 10 hours), a lot of thirst and chloasma.  Same old, really.

Looking forward to: Decorating the nursery!  It’s going to be so cozy and warm, I can’t wait!  Also, Christmas HAHAHA!  (I think baby might get more gifts than we do!)

Items Purchased: Nothing this week.

Hormone-Induced Titty Tantrums: Just one crazy crying spell when I realized it would be about two months until I got to go home.  But it was over quickly.

Workouts: 5 – 1 hour+ walks and a bike ride.  That bike ride was horrid though and I came home feeling like death.

Number of Weird Dreams: A few every night.  In one of them I was serving at a restaurant and some dumb coworker kept filling my coffee urn with lemonade!

    Yay second trimester!!! I’m so glad your feeling better being pregnant is awesome. I just loved it. Feeling sick can make it hard to enjoy, so I’m excited for you that part is over!
    I laughed out loud when I read your dream. – some co workers suck!

      Darn, I wish I was feeling better. I think week 13 was a fluke. I did feel a bit better, but it’s all crap now.
