weekly baby bumpdate {12 & 13 weeks}

Thursday, September 25, 2014

I'm really excited to start these posts where I'll be sharing details of our growing baby! I will be doing weekly "bumpdate" interviews along with pictures as my pregnancy progresses.

(If you missed my last post, you might want to check it out here.) 

Maybe you're beginning to notice, but I'm using my chalkboard quite a bit lately. A lot, actually. I did have something up my sleeve when I said I had some "new uses" for my chalkboard wall that I would be sharing with you!  The first use was for our pregnancy announcement. And the second is that it'll be the backdrop for all my weekly bumpdate pictures! (:

With that being said, I had been feeling pretty tired and not great for the past several weeks... so there was no way you could get me out of my pajamas and make me to put on a cute outfit to take a picture every week. But what made me change my mind was seeing Jill Dillard (Duggar) posting pictures of her growing bump. It made me see how much just a week or two could change and it made me wonder why I hadn't been more fervent in taking pictures before then. Better late than never, right? (:

Also, Jill Dillard is due three days before me. So after finding out that little bit of information, I sent Jason several texts filled with exclamation points and emojis in excitement that she and I could have our babies on the same day.  
The things pregnant people get excited about. Am I right?

Also, William and Kate.

Since we announced our big news this week (week 13) I thought I would share the two weeks' worth of pictures I do have so far and do the interview for week 13 in this post.

Let's get started!

*I will try to remember to wear lighter colored shirts in the future haha

13 week interview

How far along?
13 weeks! 27 more to go!

Baby's size?
A Georgia peach! Isn't that just the cutest? I've told Jason we need to move to Georgia now because it's just too dang cute. 2.91 inches and 0.81 ounces.

Days until next doc appointment?
4 days!

Total weight gain?
1.4 pounds

Maternity clothes?
It's not that my pants don't fit anymore, because they do, but they give me this really overwhelming claustrophobic feeling. That and I've always detested pants. So it's all maxi dresses and skirts anywhere I go these days. I'm trying to figure out how in the world I'm going to swing this for Winter. 

Stretch marks?

I've figured out that taking up more than half the bed and twice my weight in pillows really seems to help. Still, I definitely don't sleep as well as I used to, and I've already started waking up way too early. But, better to become a morning person and get used to waking at all hours now than to figure that out later.

Best moment this week:
Sharing our baby news with our families and then sharing the news for everyone to know! I can't tell you how hard it was at times keeping this a secret. Especially when I had to go out places but was feeling like a pukey wreck.

None yet!

Food cravings:
Bagels! Haha. I don't know. My appetite hasn't really been there this week.

Anything make you queasy or sick?
Complex foods with lots of textures going on. Think casseroles and so forth...I can't even think about it too much without getting queasy. I try to stick to the simple stuff. Bagels. Yogurt. String cheese. 
So fancy.

Have you started to show yet?
I believe so! Although I don't think you can tell if you didn't know I was pregnant. Even to me it just looks like a food baby at this point. What's odd is you can tell more from the front than you can from the side.

Missing anything?
I miss not getting sick or feeling sick!

We won't know until our first ultrasound around 20 weeks...if baby cooperates (:

Labor signs?

Belly button:
Still facing inward.

Wedding rings on or off?
On! I'm hoping these bony fingers of mine will stay that way through the pregnancy!

Happy or moody most of the time?
Happy. So far I really don't know what all the hype is about with women going nuts during pregnancy haha

Weekly symptoms:
Nausea, throwing up, headaches, food aversions, food cravings, aversion to smells, fatigue

Looking forward to:
My doctor's appointment on Monday! It will be the first appointment I have with my doctor. The appointment we had a few weeks ago to confirm pregnancy was with her nurse. We're also going to be scheduling all of my future appointments at that time and I'm excited to know those dates also! 

See you next week!
