13 Weeks

Everyone keeps telling me I need chronicle this journey so I don't forget any of it. While I agree with not wanting to forget most of it, I will be completely okay forgetting about these headaches! Want to take a guess what is plaguing me right now? ;-) Here is a look at where Peanut and I are in the 13th week:

How far along? 13 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss:  +4 pounds this past week at the doctor. I was informed that I should only be consuming 300 extra calories a day in the second trimester. What?!? Peanut will not be pleased to learn the sour cream and onion potato chips can't happen every day anymore. . .

Maternity clothes? Not yet though some items are getting snug.

Stretch marks? Nope

Sleep: When do I want to sleep? All the time. When do I get to sleep? A regular night is about 8 hours.

Best moment this week: Getting to share our big news with everyone:-)

Miss Anything? Coffee and the energy burst it brings. Decaf just isn't the same!

Movement: Nope.

Food cravings: Not really, but I have been asking for Japanese food a lot more. . . 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Yes. Evenings. I'm typically fine through the whole day and then around 3pm I start to feel yucky.

Have you started to show yet: Meh. I like to think so, but it also could have been a big lunch;-)

Gender: We'll find out at our 18 week appointment.

Labor Signs:  Nope.

Belly Button in or out? Definitely in.

Wedding rings on or off?  On.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy most of the time, but there are definitely some mood swings in there. Not sure if it's the prednisone or pregnancy, but when you see that look in my eyes I wouldn't cross me. Give me about 5 minutes and the werewolf will leave and I will be back to normal:-)

Size of Baby: According to the bump, Peanut is actually a peach this week!

Looking forward to: Starting to really show!
