13 Weeks

How Far Along: 13 weeks!

Size of Baby: Lemon

Weight Gain: only 1 pound so far!  But I'm bracing myself.

Stretch Marks: Not yet and I'm already keeping very moisturized in an effort to avoid them.

Maternity Clothes:  Not quite yet.  I'm using a BeBand with some of my pants that are too snug to button now, but the majority of my shorts are low rise so they are still fitting comfortably.

Gender:  Not sure and we have an exciting way to announce that! (To be continued...)

Movement:  I'm not feeling any movement inside, but I'm moving a lot!  I'm taking prenatal yoga and continuing to run as much as possible.

Sleep:  Waking up several times throughout the night and requiring more sleep than normal, but sleeping soundly all the same.

Missing:  Subs.  I'm home and we have the best subs here and I can't eat them!  I know, I know...I could have them heat the meat, but that just sounds gross to me.

Loving:  My bump!  I'm finally starting to look like I'm pregnant, not just over-indulging!  

Craving:  Lemon and vinegar anything.  Adding lemon juice to my water and pouring vinegar on my French Fries.  Also loving raw fruit and vegetables - pears, watermelon, carrots, apples.

Feeling: Normal!  Now that I'm over morning sickness and able to continue exercising I forget that I'm even pregnant.  

Looking Forward: Relishing every moment.  I know this is going to by way too quickly and I am thoroughly embracing and drinking in every single moment, memory, and milestone throughout these 9 months.  I am 100% in love with being pregnant.  It is such a  miracle.  Also excited that this is my last week in my first trimester!

Best Moment(s): Sending my husband a picture (we are away from each other for 2 weeks) and having him exclaim, "Did you stuff a pillow under your shirt?!"; seeing my family this week and just being home in the North Country - there is nothing quite like it.

I'm going to attempt to post a ::bumpdate:: each week on Monday.
One thing about the North Country is spotty cell and internet service so forgive me for being late this week.  Check back tomorrow to see a recap of my first trimester!


  1. I love these! I look forward to reading yours and Nicole's. So excited for you! Can't wait to see how you announce the gender!

  2. YAY!!!!! loving reading your updates!

  3. Girl - I'm due 1/11, I bet you are due the same time??? I was also 13 weeks as of Saturday!


Feel free to leave me some love. It makes my heart smile.
