Bump to Baby: 13 Weeks

You are about the size of a meyer lemon or a peach. Either way you are really growing now. Your head is still dominating your body right now but you will catch up in no time and look a little less alien. This week your bones are developing in your arms and legs. Also big this week is your intestines are moving to their permanent place in your abdomen. You are a long way from talking or even screaming at us yet but your vocal cords are forming now.

This is a big week for us, bug! This is the last week of the first trimester and boy am I looking forward to the second trimester. It's got to go better than than the first right?! Of course it didn't start out the greatest since I ended up with pink eye and more throwing up. So much throwing up! This was definitely a tough week with all the throwing up. I just haven't felt all that great this week. Plus, I have been so very cranky. I think this was probably my crankiest week yet during this pregnancy. During this week I think I had only one day when I didn't throw up and most of the days I thew up, it was more than once. It was just a rough week for me. I'm not sad to see it go.

How far along: 13 weeks

How big is the baby: Bug is the size of a meyer lemon.

Total weight gain: None really. I have been throwing up a lot so really I have lost a little but I definitely have a bit of a belly.

Clothes: Somehow even though I haven't gained any weight, nothing fits me well. I have a little belly going on so everything fits a bit uncomfortably. I have pulled out a few maternity shirts but mostly I'm in my regular stuff.

Purchases: Nothing. I won't need to buy much because I have all my past baby stuff. I have boy stuff and girl stuff. Once we know what we will have I will get stuff for the room, I will pick out a blanket and the coming home from the hospital clothes. Plus diapers. But otherwise I don't plan on getting really anything.

Movement: A few days ago I thought I felt a tiny little flutter but nothing else. It's still a bit early.

Sleep: What's this? I don't think I have slept well since finding out I was pregnant. I don't know what the issue is because I am so dang tired. I just can't get comfortable and I have such crazy dreams. I forgot what it's like to get a really good night's sleep.

Best moment this week: The one day I didn't throw up. It was a rough week when pretty much no good highlights.

Food cravings/aversions: I really want a hoagie sandwich. Apparently I have hit the point in my pregnancy where that's all I can think about. I'm already ready to get to the deli and get some me some lunch meat! But that's about the only craving I have. I have a lot of aversions which is pretty much everything.

What I miss: Sleeping well. Not throwing up. Eating normally. Not having to think so hard about what might make me throw up.

What I'm looking forward to: The second trimester in general because I'm hoping it gets better. Then I'm definitely looking forward to our next ultrasound in about four weeks or so when we find out if we are having a boy or a girl.

Husband update: He's pretty much the same as always. He loves our kids to death but when I'm pregnant it's hard for him to feel any sort of bond or closeness. It's understandable. Mostly he's been a saint dealing with all my weird food problems.
