Baby Friday- 13 Weeks


Well we had a pretty quiet week this week. Our ultrasound went great, baby is looking awesome. But of course we couldn’t tell gender yet, because my babies don’t like to cooperate on that department. But the point of the ultrasound was to check on the nugget, and I’m grateful baby is growing and happy in there. So far all appears well and I am excited.

I was able to eat chicken twice this week and it seems like as long as I don’t have to see it raw or fix it myself it’s ok. Or something like that. Eggs are still a big no go, and the highlight of my week was when Mase stuffed too much hard boiled egg yolk in his mouth at once and gagged himself and nearly threw up into my hand. Don’t worry, just sights and smells I can never un-smell or un-see.

I’m still super tired all the time so still waiting for those bursts of energy I’m told you get in the second trimester. Orrrrrrr I might just be tired until I die, that’s kind of where I’m landing with this.

As I’m writing this I’m also realizing I should probably write closer to mid-day since it’s kind of late and all I’m doing is complaining. 😉 Sorry!!!

I really have a lot to be thankful for, the nausea has eased up for sure and I’ve got lots to focus on with Mase starting pre-school and work getting busier, so there is never a shortage of activities. I’m currently trying to convince Josh to go on a road trip to Yosemite when he gets a little break from school in September…. It’s not going well. I’m not sure how I ended up with a guy from the Midwest who hates camping, but that’s a story for a different day.

I worked out three times this week! This is an amazing accomplishment even though they were short, I am happy they happened. Except for the last one, it got a little rocky. Apparently my old c-section cut doesn’t appreciate mountain climbers or burpees. I mean they’re bad enough on their own we don’t need any extra drama. My BFF has a set of DVDs from Gwyneth Paltrow’s trainer for preggos, so I’m going to give that a shot next.

We have an appointment with my regular OB on Wednesday and another fun ultrasound, and this time I’m taking Mase with me since he keeps asking why he can’t see the baby. I love the ultrasound appointments. 🙂

Week: 13
Date: 8/8/14

How big is baby? A jalapeño! These food comparisons kill me.

Pregnancy symptoms? Soooo hot. And tired. And super annoyed when Mason runs from me as fast as he can at the beach.

Cravings? Slushies, iced tea, Popsicles, spaghetti with meatballs

Aversions? Any sort of protein in the mornings, eggs at all times, raw chicken. List is getting shorter!

Best moment this week? Dr telling me my NT ultrasound was completely normal.

What are you looking forward to next week? Hmmm more Popsicles

What emotions have you been experiencing this week? A lot of impatience actually, I’ve found myself very short tempered. I could blame it on the heat, being tired and this baby, but the truth is it’s no excuse to be rotten so I’m working on it!

Are you wearing maternity clothes? No but I have to unbutton my favorite cut offs if I’m sitting for a long time. 😂

Any stretch marks? No I’m watching for them though.

How much weight have you gained? My scale says 3 pounds. My scale lies a lot so I’m not sure who to trust.

Belly button in or out? In

Felt anything? I’m pretty sure I did during my last workout and I think it was the baby demanding that I stop.

Know gender? What’s your intuition? Still waiting. Still think it’s a girl.

What baby project are you working on? I bought a onesie and cute little shorts from Baby Gap and that’s as far as I got.

Any guesses on when you’ll go into labor? No, and it gives me anxiety to even think about. I tried researching all of my options and it gives me heart palpitations. If I hear the word VBAC again in the next 6 months I’ll probably vom. The whole thing is nuts ok. It will happen when it happens and then it will be over and everyone will be happy. That’s what I’m focusing on. My favorite labor and delivery nurse from Mase told me “no one has ever stayed pregnant forever, so you have that going for you”. Bless her heart.
