Next check-in will be my first in the second trimester! Bonus - next week I'll also be going home to go on vacation with my family. Despite just finishing up the holiday weekend, I can definitely use a vacation. It was kind of a stressful week, but luckily nothing baby related and I'm sure the other stuff will be okay. More on that another time... How far along: 13 weeks! Baby is the size of a peach - about 3 inches long. Although my baby was already measuring 13 weeks 1 day at the NT scan on Tuesday. Seth and I were both tall babies.
Physical symptoms:Very tired and very sore, particularly in my hips and shoulders. I'm also having more of the endo-related butt pain this week. Yay. Mood: I have to add this one because I've been a mess this week - crying at everything. Example - every time they play that song about going home on ESPN I cry because I'm not going home. Thank you, Le.Bron James.
Total Weight Gain/Loss:+0.6 pounds. Still underweight, but my doctor expects me to "puff" by the time I see her again around 16 weeks.
Maternity clothes: Still don't need them, though I did buy a maternity tee/tunic to use as a cover-up for the beach.
Stretch marks:Not yet.
Sleep:Eh. Some days are better than others, but I still wake up really sore.
Best moment of the week: Seeing our baby at the NT scan! He/she looked really good and it was so fun to see him/her moving around. I also love seeing Seth's reactions every time we see our baby.
Movement: Not yet. I can't wait!
Food cravings: Chicken nuggets and french fries and coke.
Sex: Don't know yet.
Labor signs:Not yet.
Belly button:Still in.
What I miss:Beer and a cold ham and mustard sandwich on a croissant from the French bakery.
What I am looking forward to:Vacation with my family, getting the results of the NT scan, and the anatomy scan. Milestones: I don't know. Passing 12 weeks?
Bump Watch: My now un-toned stomach is starting to get more noticeable (at least to me), but I still don't have anything that resembles a baby bump yet.
