This is my last week in the 1st trimester - which I find hard to believe that I have even gotten to this point! These past couple of months have been so surreal & sometimes I feel like this isn't really happening to us. I'm hoping this feeling of being pregnant will start sinking in soon & I can get to a point where I can relax a bit. Still just taking it one day at a time...
*remind me not to where plaid - or maybe just this dress?! I think the plaid makes my "baby bump" look way bigger than it actually is!
How far along? 13 weeks (baby is almost 3 inches long & the size of a medium shrimp)
Symptoms: I think I have gained a cup size in my boobs & am going to need to buy some bigger bras soon. They are also SO very sore. Still feel a little nauseated in the morning & when I am feeling hungry. The fatigue & exhaustion are slowly starting to fade & I am starting to feel back to "normal" once again.
Weight gain/loss: + 1 lb (back at a total of 3 lbs gained from my starting weight which is right where I should be for the end of the 1st trimester)
Maternity clothes? not yet
Sleep: still easily falling asleep & can now make it to 4:30am without having to get up to pee. Still can't fall back asleep though once I have gotten up :(
cravings/aversions: Still loving the tomato, basil, mozzarella panini's. Still not wanting any coffee, mexican, or my absolute favorite snack: popcorn.
Movement? can't feel any yet
What I miss? I actually miss being able to wear all my cute shorts - especially since it has been so flippin' hot here!!
Best moment this week: last week in the 1st trimester
What I'm looking forward to: starting the 2nd trimester next week
Next Appointment: 14 week visit with the OB on August, 6th
Milestones: Baby T's fingerprints have formed on the tiny fingertips, the veins &
organs are clearly visible through the very thin skin, & the body is
starting to catch up with the head — which makes up just a third of the body size now.
