13 weeks

Due Date: August 25, 2012

How far along: 13 weeks

The Bump:
It does look like I have a teeny bit of a bump, but I didn't have a super flat stomach to begin with so who knows what's baby vs. what's food. :)

Total weight loss/gain: - 9 lbs (due to nausea and no appetite)

Workouts: Let's just say I'd like to do better next week...

Baby items purchased: A cute little owl pillow from Patina (I'm thinking a woodsy gender neutral theme for the nursery and couldn't resist this)

Sleep: All. The. Time. I've been so tired! I try to go to bed early and sometimes close by eyes a bit after work. Though it's not good sleep - I wake up several times throughout the night.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I always feel pretty queasy throughout the day and light headed getting out of the shower in the morning, and I just haven't had much of an appetite in general. I had an adverse reaction to some salmon I made, so apparently don't like that anymore! Also can't stand the smell of fried onions.

Symptoms: So so so tired, all the time. No throwing up (praise God!) but pretty nauseous all day long, with some uncomfortable stomach pains. I've needed Metamucil and that's all I'll say about that. I'm also having some weird dreams and not sleeping well. All that being said, the symptoms make me feel grateful because it means the baby is cooking in there!

Food cravings: Greek yogurt (specifically Chobani Apple Cinnamon - the BEST flavor), turkey bacon, cereal (I hadn't had Lucky Charms in years until recently!), and water - I can't get enough liquid.

Maternity clothes: I did buy a pair of maternity jeans - I can still wear my old stuff but these are SO much more comfortable. :)

Stretch marks: No

Gender ideas: No idea - I find myself saying "he" but nothing in particular makes me feel that way - and we're not finding out!

Movement: Not yet

Labor Signs: Not yet, thank goodness!

Miss anything: Sleeping well

Best moment this week: My 13 week appointment yesterday - I got to hear little Petrie's heartbeat again! I'll never get sick of hearing that sound!

Looking forward to: Date night with the dad-to-be on Saturday! He planned something for us and never dissapoints. I'm also excited to be singing at church this weekend - I was finally asked to sub last minute and am able to!


  1. Hehehe :) Super cute!
    Which service are you singing at? Ryan's out of town and I want to go, but don't wanna be that girl sitting by herself... ;)

  2. Thank you dear! I'm singing at all three services (5 PM Sat, 9 & 11 Sun) but we're only staying for the 9 AM service as I have a baby shower to get to. You can sit with Tyge (and possibly my parents) while I sing for sure - text us when you get there!
