2nd Trimester, here I come!

Jumpin' on the preggo bandwagon here and going to do try to do a weekly pregnancy journal.  I would have liked to look back on something like this with my first pregnancy, so I'm starting now!

I can say that this pregnancy has been harder than my prior one, but not awful.  Morning sickness lingered on heavy for about a month and is tapering off now.  Everything else is pretty much the same---boobs = ouch, tired....oh so tired, crabby emotional, crampy.

How far along? 13 Weeks
Total weight gain: By my scale 1-2 lbs.  We'll see what the doctor's scale says tomorrow!'

I've been trying to be healthier this time around--like 2-3 apples a day healthy!  So I really hope the weight gain is much less than with Everett---still working on shedding those last Lb's!

Maternity clothes?  Uh, for sure.  As expected, I am definitely "showing" much more this time around and faster so regular pants are out of the question!  EEK!

For the record, maternity clothes suck.  They are boring and bland or halfway cute and super spendy.  What gives!  Can't a girl just get a really cute pair of colored skinny jeans for the spring for less than $50!

Stretch marks?  Not that I'm aware----but Everett "blessed" me with them before, so it might be hard to tell.

Sleep: Uncomfortable.  Lacking. Tossing. Turning. Middle of the night bathroom breaks.  Sleep is no bueno.  :(

Best moment this week:  A week or so ago, I got myself a fetal heart rate doppler off Amazon ( Best spent $30 ever!)  I've been using it ever few days and it is SO cool to here our babe's heart beating and even hear it move around in there.  So crazy what the body is capable of.  Because of my previous miscarriage and being a natural born worrier--it is great for peace of mind on days where I don't  "feel" pregnant.

Miss Anything?  Sleeping on my stomach and alcohol!  I would die for a rum and coke or margarita!  MMMMmmmmm......

Movement: I know it seems early, but I feel like there are little flutters here are there that are definitely the baby.  Nothing huge or visual to anyone else yet obviously, but I know the difference between wiggles and gas, ok people? :)

Food cravings: Like I said above---adult beverages!  Cereal, Apples, pickles, cantaloupe, pomegranate seeds and oh those Krispy Kreme's!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Thinking of hot Cheetos.  Totally devoured them prior to pregnancy and now, I can't touch them.

Gender:  Hoping for a girl!

Fruit/Veggie Size:  Peach!

Labor Signs: Nope

Symptoms: Boobs.  Lingering morning sickness. Tired.

Belly Button in or out? In.

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood This Week:   Stressed.

Looking forward to: Spring Break!  Knowing what my job looks like next year.  Figuring out what the sex of the peach is.


  1. I'm so excited for you friend! I'll email you soon but we are doing a clothing exchange here soon (maternity and non-maternity) where you can bring clothes that you're done with and then walk out with new (to-you) stuff! It's super fun. Interested? I'll send you the info!
