Week 13 Bumpdate

{this is my attempt at a bumpdate...not having to worry about my hair/makeup?  two thumbs up!}


How Far Along? 13 weeks! Today marks the second trimester...time is flying!

Size of Baby: A peach

Weight Gain:  2-3 lbs (last time I was at the doctors the scale said 1 lb, but I know that's gone up since then, will find out for sure next week!)

Maternity Clothes: Regular clothes are still fitting well, but getting a little snug. I'm basically living in these elastic waistband shorts (in multiple colors-don't worry), but I have a few dresses ready from Pink Blush for when the times comes.

Stretch marks: I started using Earth Mama Angel Baby Body Butter and also Burt's Bees Mama Bee pretty early on to try to be proactive about this! I love the Earth Mama, but the Burt's Bees is easier to travel with because of the container, so I usually bring that one when I need to pack it and take it somewhere with me.

Symptoms: Still lucking out in this department, and very thankful for such an easy pregnancy so far. I get out of breath more easily when running errands and feel bloated 24/7, but other than that I've been feeling really good and can't complain. My hormones these days can't say the same...they are out of control! Anything and everything will make me tear up.

Cravings: Fruit smoothies, CARBS! (blueberry bagels-I am crazy about you), gummy bears, and wait for it...one night I begged Billy to bring home KFC. Coming from a vegetarian for multiple years prior to this, this is just weird for me to grasp. Billy actually called me after I texted him that request because he didn't know if it was serious or not. Yes love, it is, and I need it now.

Gender: We find out exactly TWO weeks from today!!

Mood: Happy with a side of Psycho Chick (when the hormones come out to play)

Nursery: Once we find out the gender, the gears will definitely get turning on this space! The room is empty and ready for us to get started on it and I'm so excited about every little thing...decorating, DIY projects, and to just watch it come together.

Movement: None so far!

Sleep: Pre-pregnancy I could never take naps because I just wouldn't be able to relax/shut off. Not now! I don't ever feel overly tired during the day, but the second I lay down on the couch...I'm napping. I took 3 naps this past weekend alone and it is such a nice change! As for sleeping at night, I've been sleeping like a rock and having some wacky dreams almost every night. My saving grace has been the Bump Nest pillow! Even if you aren't pregnant, you should buy this pillow. Rocky and Billy both love to steal it! ;)

Workouts: I'm still doing my spin class on Monday's (my doctor actually told me how great spin is for pregnancy-just don't start it when pregnant if you have never done it before!) and I'm managing about 2-3 other workouts per week. When I run, I make sure to take breaks often and not to get out of breath. Going to try to keep this up for as long as I can...

What I Miss:  At first I definitely had the wine + cold beer withdrawal, and there are still days that I would love to be able to have a glass but I'm not wanting it like I used to. I've been drinking La Croix daily which has helped so much (obsessed with this stuff!) and when I'm out with girlfriends, I will order cranberry, soda, with a lime and it's been keeping me content!

Belly Button in or out? 
In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Anything making you queasy or sick:  No, thank you Baby K for this!

Best Moment This Week: Technically it was last week, but since this is my first weekly post I have to include it: telling everyone about Baby K after keeping it a secret for so long was pretty awesome and surreal. Also, this pregnant chick beat her husband in tennis for the 2nd time since being knocked up. This needs to be documented.

Labor Signs: No ma'am

Looking Forward To: My doctor's appointment next week (I love going to each and every appointment because it just makes me feel more reassured that everything is going good and since it's still new it makes everything seem more official/real! :)) and of course, finding out the gender! We are also going to be with all of Billy's family this weekend for the 4th of July and I'm excited to see some of his family that we haven't seen since announcing our news!

...and just because I'm not sure which layout I like best yet for these updates, including this one so hopefully I can make up my mind soon! Thoughts?! I hope they will get better as time goes on!

  13. Love the bump pics! Can't wait to see all of your nursery plans and DIY projects. I may have to start a pinterest board dedicated to my unborn kiddos for this.

  15. You look great mama and really adorable photos! and naps are so important and the best. I made the mistake and missed a spot underneath my belly with the body butter and 1 big stretch mark- it was sorta funny and went away but I still can't believe I missed a spot.

  17. Cute way to capture each week and especially smart to keep the hair/face out of it. I didn't think of that before doing mine, dang it. Haha. I've been eating blueberry bagels for breakfast everyday since finding out I was pregnant! So good!

  21. HOW CUTE ARE YOU?! I love the little notes. Both layouts are precious & something I have never seen before. I'm so excited to follow along your journey. Adorable!

  22. This is kind of genius with the no face/hair thing! Please still do outfit posts though! My favourite of this is happy with a side of psycho chick. So, so true. I am so happy and then every once in awhile just burst into tears over nothing.

  23. That's too funny about the KFC!! I was just asking my mom about her cravings and she said she craved KFC and Chinese food when she was pregnant with my brother, and grape soda for me. Grape soda makes me GAG and my brother isn't a fan on Chinese. I am torn between both layouts, I love the both of them ... do you plan on holding up fruits/veggies for each week? That might get a little heavy towards the end ;)
