13 weeks

I'm going to write about how we shared our pregnancy news with family and friends soon, but I thought I'd start with a weekly update.  I hope to do these each week, mainly for Caleb and I to remember the little details.  Sorry if the pregnancy-ness of this blog bores you, but it has kinda taken over our lives for the moment : )

So, I'm just over 13 weeks now, and I am so happy to be in the 2nd trimester.  I'm gonna use one of these pregnancy templates things to keep me updated.

Pregnancy Highlights
How Far along? 13 weeks!
Size of the Baby? Itty bitty, but growing by the second!  My phone app says the size of a lemon, 3 inches, 1.5 oz.

Maternity Clothes? Not yet, but I’m really looking forward to them.  Luckily, I have a lot of winter pants that were a size too big.  They fit great now!  Maybe it's a good thing my mom buys me clothes a size ahead as if I'm still a growing kid, ha.

Gender?  We don’t know yet.  I’m kinda torn on when/if to find out.  I know we will, but I sort of want to wait a little while.  It’s tough when you work in an office with ultrasound machines everywhere!

Movement?  It’s a movin’, but I can’t feel it yet.  I can hardly wait for that first movement.  I think it will make it seem so real!

Sleep? Pretty good.  I wake up to visit the little girls room at least once during the night, but other than that I’m good.  I still sleep on my stomach, but the doctors say it’s fine.

Cravings? Pizza!  Especially Pizza Inn!  Any kind of cheese, bread, Zaxby’s.  Sweet Caleb has made many a late night Zaxby’s runs.  I do eat some healthy things in between the bad cravings : )

Symptoms?  Nausea, reflux, vomiting here and there.  It always happens at the most inopportune times.  Like driving down the road on the way to work or in Waffle House.  Frequent urination, fatigue.  But all that goes away now that I’m starting the 2nd trimester, right?

What I miss?  I really can’t think of anything.  Maybe feta cheese.  Or Mexican cheese. Really though, I'm just so happy!

Milestones?  Starting the 2nd trimester.  When you do this OB thing for a living, it makes me entirely TOO aware of things.  So praise the Lord for little milestones!

Weight Gain? 4 pounds already.  Yikes!

What I’m nervous about?  Um, everything.  I’m a pretty anxious person, and now I have another human to be anxious for.  I’m just nervous about doing everything right for this baby.  I have a great devotional book and spend lots of time in prayer when my mind starts to wander.

What I’m excited about?   Again, everything!  I can’t wait to start feeling movement.  I'm excited that we've finally told people, but I did enjoy keeping that sweet secret.

There's the 13 week bump.  I can't wait for it to really show!  I'll probably be eating those words soon.
