Weekly Pregnancy Update
How far along: 13 weeks - hooray for the second trimester!
How big is baby: What to Expect says lemon, Babycenter says peapod, The Bump says peach (about 3 inches long)
Total weight gain:  +1 lb (official weight taken at the doctor's office)
Maternity clothes: Still getting by with just a belly band for my pants. I ordered several dresses and tops from JC Penny Maternity. They were having a great sale and I found a coupon code so I got some very good deals. It's so hard to find maternity clothes for work but they had lots of good stuff and very reasonable prices. I hate spending a lot of money on clothes that I'll only wear for a few months.
Sleep: Fell asleep watching tv around 9:30 last night. Still struggling with having to get up to go to the bathroom so many times a night and starting to have trouble finding a comfortable sleeping position at night.
Best moment of the week: Hearing baby's heartbeat :) We have seen his/her heartbeat on an ultrasound before but never heard it. Incredibly wonderful to experience. A solid 140 bpm on Tuesday!
Food cravings: Lemonade/juice, pizza
Food aversions: Not at the moment
Symptoms: Still suffering from morning sickness. Tried weening myself off of my morning sickness medication since I had been doing so well, only to suffer disastrous consequences. My morning sickness is still very much present.
Movement: Nothing that I can feel yet, hopefully in a few more weeks!
Gender: The ultrasound office should be calling to schedule my 20-week any day now. We should know by early-mid September as long as the little one cooperates. Fingers crossed!
What I’m looking forward to: Feeling movement
What I miss: Soda! Been craving diet coke like crazy
Next appt:  August 19, 2013
