Week 13



Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 13 Weeks - I'm at the end of my 13 weeks. I've been doing my "highlights" at the end of the week instead of the beginning. But I've noticed others doing it at the beginning.
Size of baby: 3 inches long - the size of a medium shrimp (that's what my weekly email said, I did not make that up)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Not really sure, I need to buy a scale so I can check between dr. appointments.
Maternity Clothes: Nope, just my trusty ole Bella Band - my love
Gender: Don't know yet but we will be finding out in October!
Movement: Not yet, I'm ready though!
Sleep: Sleeping has gotten a little better. Except when Luke wakes me up about 5 times a night and says "you're on your back, roll over!!!" He's a little protective.
What I miss: Diet coke and a cold turkey and cheese sandwich
Cravings: Today I was craving pitas. So random. So I went to pita pit and enjoyed every bite
Symptoms: This week I have felt pretty normal.
Best Moment this week: Receiving our first baby gift from a family friend. It made it feel real!

You look adorable!! Cute little baby bump!

I'm 2 weeks away from my due date and I agree with everyone else...the 2nd trimester is the best!

One thing on the back sleeping, I was not getting sleep because I was so concerned about being on my back. I asked my doctor and she said it really isn't an issue until the 3rd trimester when your belly & baby get heavy. Also, she recommended a maternity pillow, The Snoogle, and it has changed my pregnancy sleeping! It keeps me on my side. It's a little expensive but worth EVERY penny!!

You look great Megan!!!!!!!!!!

Did you know its not a concern to sleep on the left side until around 25 weeks? That was something I learned in my second pregnancy. I soaked up all the back sleeping I could get, and even then, my doctor said the body has a way to regulate getting enough blood to the baby, and people naturally roll over. Whew. That made me feel a lot less nervous!

My doctor also said soda and coffee are as okay as if you aren't pregnant. He discourages both across the board, but told me that I could have a soda every day. I just couldn't have 12. Again, this helped me chill out a lot!!!!!

I've never heard of Pita Pit. Now I am curious!!!


So... sorry for giving you unsolicited advice. I know its annoying! But because I care about you and your comfort... I will also give you a great tip! http://www.artfire.com/users/cutiefruity this shop is awesome. I bought all my belly bands from her and I preferred them to Bella because of the fabric, colors, and design.

K said...

My doctor also okayed caffeine during both my pregnancies... just said not to overdue it. I also had cold lunchmeats and cheeses throughout both my pregnancies but I know a lot of pregnant women prefer to avoid it.

You look great! Enjoy the 2nd trimester. :)
