13 Weeks

13 Weeks
(People are NOT lying when they say you start showing much sooner with the 2nd!!!)
Pregnancy Highlights
(I stole this from a couple blogs I read and thought it was a cute idea)
How far along: 13 weeks
Size of baby: 3 inches, the size of a giant shrimp
Total weight gain/loss: Gained 1 lb...which is good, but at this point with Cole, I had lost about 10lbs!!! Yikes!!
Maternity clothes: I sooooo want to wear maternity pants b/c my regular pants are so uncomfortable, but I don't feel like I should just yet.
Gender: Not going to find out
Movements: None yet, although I swear I have felt something, but it's probably just gas....ha!
Sleep: Much better!! Had total insomnia for a few weeks but getting much better! No more sleeping on my tummy, kinda sad!
What I miss: Eating normal food! Sitting on the couch at night with Nick past 8:00, that's my new bedtime :)
Cravings: Nothing really, just eat what sounds good, which isn't much
Symptoms: Still not liking food too much, watery mouth, bad taste in mouth, very sensitive to smells and tiredness
Best moment of the week: Finally getting some candles and plug-ins in our house to make it smell better...haha!! I was the same way with Cole, but for some reason the smell of our house is yucky to me, ha!
I guess I'd have to say that overall I am feeling better. I am actually able to sit at the table when people eat now, still can't eat the food but sitting at the table is a huge step! :) Last weekend Cole had a sleepover with Nick's parents so we could sleep in. BUT, did we sleep in??? Heck no!!! Nick was up at 6:50 and me 8:00 (which actually is pretty late for me). We still really appreciated Nick's parents taking Cole for the night, I know they all had a blast!
Dennis even got to watch Cole all day Saturday because us girls did some more wedding dress shopping and Nick was with some buddies watching football.
When Nick and I packed Cole up to take him home, he WAS NOT happy to be leaving!
It was a great weekend, but I was pooped by the end of it! :)

I love that you're not finding out the sex of the baby!

The only maternity clothes I have bought so far (at 13 weeks) are jeans and work pants. I tried those elastic waistband extenders but didn't really like them that much. Prefer to wear comfortable and Stylish Maternity clothes.
