13 Weeks!


Hellllooooo baby bump! :)

I am having to force myself to take these weekly pictures. I am not one for pictures by myself AND I am not a serious person AT ALL. So I mostly just feel dumb.

How far along: 13 weeks!! Is it just me or is this pregnancy flying by?

Size of the baby: According to Baby Center, about 3 inches long and the size of a medium shrimp! I HATE shrimp so I found another website that says it’s the size of peach! MUCH better! ;)

Total weight gain/loss: I forgot to weigh this morning. oops.

Maternity clothes: Nope.

Stretch marks: Old one.

Sleep: Sleeping pretty well if I can keep the headaches away!

Best moment this week: We took the kids to the fall festival at school last night. They had so much fun! It’s nice to know that our move to a different school was a good one! The boys love it there!

Movement: Still feeling it every now and then! Bring on the kicks and punches!

Food cravings/aversions: Let’s see. Chocolate. Preferably Reese’s cups. Peyton got into my stash on top of the refrigerator and ate I was not a happy pregnant lady when I noticed! And a little side note: How about the ONLY thing that didn’t give me heartburn when I was pregnant with Reece was Reese’s Puff Cereal! :)

Gender:I think hubby has given up and given in. He never tells me no. Ever. Yes, I’m a spoiled brat. oops. So we’ll find out in April.

Labor signs: NO, thankfully.

Belly button in or out: In

What I am looking forward to: Our Tide smearing that ugly orange team tomorrow! ROLL TIDE!

Weekly wisdom: I don’t know. This one always gets me. Just don’t eat your momma’s stash of candy. k?

I am having some REALLY bad headaches. I had them with my other pregnancies too. It’s from pregnancy hormones. Not much I can do but tough it out. I have been taking Tylenol, which does help, but I feel guilty taking it. Sometimes it hurts so bad I can’t even see! I plan on getting as much rest as possible this weekend to see if that helps. If not, I’m calling my doctor Monday. I can’t function like this! I am not complaining, I will do whatever it takes and hurt for this baby! And on a positive note, I haven’t been nauseated much at all anymore! YAY!

Look at that little bump...YAY! I know you've probably heard this 100 times but I know you can take Tylenol while pregnant.

I feel your pain. My doctor says the extra estrogen in a female fetus will definitely set off migraines. They allowed me to use progesterone cream from the health food store. I rubbed it on my neck. It helped a lot. So did microwaved rice packs.

That's interesting! Thank you! I will try anything at this point! :)
