Here we are at 13 weeks...just one week left in the first trimester! It still feels surreal...especially now that everyone knows that we're expecting. It still catches me off guard when people ask me how I'm feeling, but I'm getting more comfortable with believing that this pregnancy will be happy, healthy, and lead to a precious little one in a few months! We had a good appointment with Dr. Basham this morning, and we got to hear Sprout's heartbeat again. S/he was much more cooperative this morning, and his/her Mommy and Daddy were very thankful. I'm going to try to be brave and go 4 weeks between my next appointment! Hope I can hang in there and not go crazy! Here's the scoop so far:
How Far Along: 13 weeks! Yay
Weight Gain: Somewhere between 3 and 4 pounds total. I'm just glad I got to weigh before Thanksgiving!
Maternity Clothes: Not quite yet. The "fat pants" are still working for me, but getting a little tighter. I did look at some maternity clothes online the other night, but I still think I'd feel like an imposter if I wore them. I'm getting a little bump, but it's nothing that can be seen through my clothes just yet.
Stretch Marks: Still nothing new!
Sleep: Still sleeping like a champ. Trying to get used to sleeping on my side, because I know that I won't be able to be a belly sleeper much longer!
Best Moment This Week: The week is still new, but so far, it's definitely hearing the heartbeat again! I can't imagine much of anything that could top that.
Gender Guess: I really can't say that I've got any hunches on that one. Except that one morning this week, while praying for the baby, I found myself praying for "our little girl." Wonder what that means?!
Belly Button: An innie...can't imagine that'll be changing anytime soon.
Cravings: Nothing, really!
What I Miss: I can't really say that I'm missing anything...I'm quite content!
What I'm Looking Forward To: maternity pants, and another ultrasound (whenever that will be).
Milestones: I'm nearly out of the first trimester!
