13 Weeks

How Far Along? 13 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss? 8 pounds up, which is suprising considering the amount of food i'm eating!
Maternity clothes? Still loving tunics and leggings. Have given up totally on my skinny jeans- even with a Bella Band they won't stay up.
Stretch marks? None
Sleep? Still interrupted by snack time but I am able to fall back asleep really fast.
Best moment this week? Getting a pedicure and a foot massage. So good!
Miss Anything? Coffee!!!!! I can almost handle the scent of the coffee isle in the grocery store so I may be able to sip some soon!
Movement? Some little flutters but I cant tell if they are my tummy grumbling or baby moving around.
Food Cravings? Sour anything- oranges, grapefruits and sour soothers are working to eliminate them.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Sadly still coffee. I seem to be able to stomach most veggies again but am still craving meat.
Have you started to show yet? The belly is definitely sticking out, I have had strangers comment on it now so I know it's not just my imagination.
Gender? No idea but everyone keeps telling me they think it's a girl.
Labor signs? None!
Belly Button in or out? It's in.
Wedding rings on or off? Still on.
Happy or Moody most of the time? Still happy.
Looking forward to? Dr's appointment this week. They called me this week because of some test results but wouldn't tell me what test over the phone. I am trying not to worry- if it was anything really serious they would tell me over the phone or want me in sooner but it is still driving me a bit nuts.

12 weeks

Yeah! Baby post time!

How Far Along? 12 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss? Up 9 pounds
Maternity clothes? Loving leggings and tunics.
Stretch marks? None yet
Sleep? My bladder and tummy aren't letting me sleep. I feel icky if I don't eat every 4 hours, so whenever I wake up to pee I also have a snack. I am getting better at 3am quiet snack preparation.
Best moment this week? Seeing the ultrasound- the baby was squirming around and kicking. The heartbeat was also incredible!
Miss Anything? Coffee & Sushi! 
Movement? None that I can feel but the baby was squirming like mad on the screen! 
Food Cravings? Salty anything. I think I could even just eat spoonfuls of salt and be happy.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Coffee and the smell of cigarettes. 
Have you started to show yet? There is definitely a bump there, customers have started to ask me if it's a baby.
Gender? Still thinking its a girl but couldn't tell on the ultrasound.
Labor signs? None!
Belly Button in or out? It's in.
Wedding rings on or off? Still on, not spinning anymore though!
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy when I'm not dead tired. 
Looking forward to? Sleeping for longer than 4 hours at a time (I know once I have baby that's going to be a distant memory, but I would love it right now!)

11 Weeks along

I saw this question format on Jessica's Blog and thought I would borrow it for my pregnancy. I will start with the photos soon too- I need to figure out the timer on my camera as Jon is gone in the morning before i'm dressed and by the time I get home I am too tired to pose. The shutterbug in me is going nuts with the lack of photo documentation....

How Far Along? 11 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss? 4 lbs gained
Maternity clothes? Lots of leggings and dresses, picked up maternity jeans as my normal ones dig in and make me feel kinda sick.
Stretch marks? So far no, i'm still pretty small and slathering on the cream every morning!
Sleep? I feel like I could sleep all the time. For the first time in my life I climb into bed, turn out the light and zonk out. I am usually up twice during the night to pee but fall asleep right after.
Best moment this week? Jon cooking dinner, cleaning up and taking care of the house so I can rest.
Miss Anything? Coffee. I don't function without my morning coffee (and sometimes my afternoon one!) But it's not agreeing with me right now.
Movement? None yet.
Food Cravings? Anything salty or spicy.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Coffee and lukewarm water. If I am going to drink water it has to be straight out of the fridge cold. I have been drinking tons of juice and peppermint tea so I still get enough fluids.
Have you started to show yet? I look more chubby than pregnant but there is a bit of a tummy forming.
Gender? Not sure yet.
Labor signs? None thankfully.
Belly Button in or out? Still in.
Wedding rings on or off? Still on, actually spinning around on my fingers more than normal.
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy but feeling ill and very tired.
Looking forward to? Starting my second trimester next week- hopefully more energy will come with it! Also, starting to plan the nursery out in my head.

So Tired

So do you remember last fall when we were thinking we were ready to start a family and decided that we were going to move first? Apparently the universe has decided that we have waited for long enough. I went into the doctors office to see why I was so tired and found out that there is a little one on the way!
I am so excited, although still feeling like I got hit by a truck. I can't believe how sore and tired I have been! I am due on May 3rd so at this point I am 11 weeks. I am hoping that when I hit the second trimester I will feel better (which everyone tells me will happen)
The bump is starting to show, my skinny pants are more memory than reality and I splurged on some maternity jeans and dress pants to wear to work. It seems so strange to be happy about putting weight on. I have spent the last few years doing everything I can to get rid of it. So, for right now I need this shirt:
I will post some photos soon (once I can corner Jon into taking some) But yeah!!! Baby in May!!!
