How far along: 13 weeks. This is date I got from charting; if I went by the date of my period, which my ob does I would be 13 weeks 3 days. There isn't much of a variation in them. I didn't ovulate as late as I have before. I'm still sticking with the ovulation date, which baby has measured at during the first two ultrasounds. I didn't ask during the third.
Baby Size: A peach or a gas cap on a car. Take your pick.
Weight: 124.4 (up 1.6lbs from the start).
- Dizziness and lightheartedness started last week. I have been trying to eat more often and have been drinking lots more water and that seems to help somewhat.
- I still feel nausea a lot although it's less of an all day thing and more of a here and there thing.
- Getting up lot's to pee at night
- Gas pains

and the way I'm standing.
Sleep: I need to get more on a routine of going to bed early and not sleeping in so late (9-10am). I slept a few 3-4 hour stretches Saturday night which for me is a long time.
Cravings/Food Aversions: Still not a fan of meat, although I did eat a chicken egg roll the other day. Fruit is still always good as are bagels and cream cheese. But really no cravings yet. My appetite has mostly returned and it's no longer a struggle to eat although I still only eat small portions.
Belly Button: In
Rings on or off: On
Gender: Unknown, but only for 5 more weeks. My sister in law and mother in law say boy. My mom, sister and brother in law say girl. My brother says he hopes it's a girl so my niece won't be the only girl on that side of the family.
I had a dream Sunday night that the baby was a boy. I had a random unexpected ultrasound during a unscheduled (as in I think I just showed up at the doctor because I was in the area) doctor visit at 14 weeks. As soon as the wand was put on my belly the baby was shown with it's leg spread and there was no mistaking it was a boy. Rob was proud of that fact. Ha.
Name: I don't know. Rob says we are set on the names we had before getting pregnant, but now that I actually am I find myself wavering a little. But we still have lots of time since we don't want to share until after the baby is born.
Milestones: 2nd trimester!
Best moment: Telling our families. It was kind of tough to get together, but it was worth it. They were all really excited for us. Although seeing the baby again and seeing it move was pretty amazing.
Looking forward to: Garage sales to get cheap baby things!
What I miss: Wine, specifically moscato or reisling. I'm not a big drinker, but once in a while it's nice to have a glass with dinner.
Labor signs: Please nothing for at least another 25 weeks!
Appointments: 16 week checkup on the 16th, and the anatomy scan on the 30th.
Misc. We told our families this past weekend. I didn't do anything fancy for my parents. They asked me if I was feeling better (I had been feel dizzy at a party the night before) and I said "Not really because I'm pregnant" or something along those lines.
With Rob's dad, sister and brother in law I had taken pictures a few weeks ago when I was babysitting my nephew and niece. I took a picture of my nephew holding up a sign with the number #1, my niece with a number #2 and then I took the ultrasound pic and put a #3 on it. I put them in a album on the ipad and had them flip through it. My sister in law caught on right away and said "I know that's not my ultrasound picture. Congratulations!"
It was kind of like this.

Later that night Rob sent a text to every family member who's number he had to tell them. Sometimes I feel like he's not as involved as I'd like. He doesn't always ask how I'm feeling, or when I say I'm feeling sick and expect him to get me something he doesn't always just do it like I'd like. But then he shows his excitement in other ways and it makes me feel so happy. I never doubted his excitement, but I guess it is different for guys.
Then the other day Rob was talking about getting the crib set up. I was like whoa, it's still really early! And the crib needs to be painted. It's not my favorite color or style, but it was free and I don't hate it; I just would not have chosen it if I had to pay for it. I'm still very grateful that it is one less thing we need to buy.
