Baby Bump: Week 13!

Baby Bump 13 Weeks 3

So, Chad may have accused me of sticking my belly out in these photos.  I don’t think I was doing that — my body seems to change every single day, and some days it looks big and others it looks smaller!  (And if I did, it definitely wasn’t on purpose!) But I can’t deny that these photos probably make my bump seem a little bigger than it actually is right now — case in point, this Instagram photo [1] was taken three days later, and I think my stomach looks a bit smaller there.

It’s funny, I don’t think I’ve put this much day-to-day thought into how my body looks for years, but every morning I pop out of bed and check my stomach in the mirror!  I still appreciate being able to “hide” that I’m pregnant for work-related meetings, but I also can’t wait to have a visible bump! 

How far along? 13 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 5 pounds

Maternity clothes? I’ve bought a few pairs of maternity pants — jeans from LOFT, white jeans from ASOS, and hot pink jeans from A Pea in the Pod (couldn’t resist some amazing sales)!  I’m not wearing them yet — I’ve been mostly sticking to leggings and dresses — but as the weather gets colder, I definitely will be!

Stretch marks? Nope.

Symptoms: Amazingly, my skin is clearing up after some rough breakouts during the first trimester!  I’ve been kind of emotional and hormonal lately, which is a bummer — usually I’m as laid back as they come, but lately, not so much.  Hopefully that will settle down too!

Sleep: Has been great!  I slept terribly before getting pregnant, and so far, the last few months have been better than I’ve slept in years.  If this continues, Chad and I are going to end up with, like, ten kids just to cure my insomnia!

Best moment this week: Non-baby related stuff!  Made some great progress with some some new cases for my law practice, which was very exciting!  (My website [2] is now up, if you want to check it out!)

Worst moment of the week: Spending seven hours in the doctor’s office after a screw-up (theirs, not mine) with scheduling an appointment.  Literally, seven hours. 

Have you told family and friends: Yes!

Miss Anything? Wine!  LOL, sorry if this ends up being 27 more weeks of me saying that I miss alcohol!

Movement: None yet.

Food cravings: Halloween candy!  Not sure I can really blame the baby for that one…

Anything making you queasy or sick: Lately, no.  Skipping breakfast is still a bad idea, but I’ve been having whole wheat toast and that’s been more than enough.

Have you started to show yet: A little!

Labor Signs: Nope

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Probably Moody… Hopefully that will turn around soon!

Looking forward to: So many things!  Decorating the nursery, buying baby clothes, and MEETING this little creature who’s taken over my body and thoughts for the last 3.5 months!
