13 Weeks Down, 27 More Weeks to go! ❤

Starting weight 120 pounds - Starting waist measurement 31.5 inches. 

Highlights and Lowlights of my Pregnancy Week 10:

  • Baby's heartbeat was a strong 156bpm
  • I have had no bleeding or cramping! 
  • Still not losing as much of my mucous plug!
  • Nausea has calmed down a little. It's only bad in the car and after some meals. 
  • Got to see my precious baby at our ultrasound!
  • Almost out of the FIRST TRIMESTER! 
  • My prediction was right on the baby's due date.  05-26-15
  • No more horrible diarrhea! 
  • Bloated has started to go away!

  • Exhaustion has kicked in at full force!
  • Easily upset!
  • Loss of appetite. 
  • Round ligament pains especially when I sneeze.
  • Breasts are starting to feel tender.
  • Gassy. 

  • It’s still stone fruit season this week and your baby is in the peach section. That’s right; it is the size of a ripe peach and is probably just as fuzzy at this stage of its development. The fine hair which covers the surface of your baby’s body at 13 weeks serves to protect its skin when it is floating around in all that water.
  • Your baby is preparing its vocal chords from this week. One of the most amazing noises you will ever hear is your baby’s first cry, a mix between relief and longing to calm them. There will be times of course when you’ll wish those vocal chords didn’t work quite as well as they do. Welcome to parenthood.
  • The connections between your baby’s brain, muscles and nerves have all formed by now. They are able to move freely and use their muscles to push and pull themselves into various positions.

Uterus is the size of a grapefruit.

Weight gain: Same weight.

Stretch marks: No new ones!

Belly button in or out: It is an innie outtie! I have never had it pop out for any of my pregnancies.

Sleep: Elena has been waking up every hour at the least so sleep hasn't been happening at night for this momma. 

Best moment this week: I got to see precious baby at my 13 week screening and ultrasound.  

Worst moment this week: I have been beyond emotional and easily peeved this week. I think the stress is getting to me. 

Miss anything: I miss not being a hormonal mess. I have never felt more insecure and needy. 

Movement: No movement yet just gas! 

Cravings: Sweet stuff this week! Chocolate, fruits, cherry pie, waffles. The list goes on!  

Queasy or sick: Just tired this week. I still can't eat in the mornings but i'm use to that by now. 

Looking forward to: The second trimester! 

Mood: With the babies I am beyond happy and loveable no matter my mood. Elena melts you with her giggles and Brayden's kisses and hugs always fill my heart with love. I have still been pulling away from everything else. Talking to a bunch of people add on to my stress so I have just been concentrating on me and my family. 

Upcoming events/appointments: 
Appointment with my midwife December 9th!

What I look forward to: A confirmation that the baby is okay and growing perfectly!

Weekly Wisdom: Sometimes you just need to distance yourself from people. If they care, they’ll notice. If they don’t you know where you stand.
