#2 - 13 Weeks

I write this post at 17w2d, but am pulling the stats from my 12 week and 16 week  appointment since I fail at blogging.

How far along: 17 weeks + 2 days

Total weight gain: I had gained a little bit of weight, but was still down overall (-3.5 lbs. at the 12 week appt and -2.5 lbs. at the 16 week appt) from when we started.

Maternity clothes: Kind of - I wore some this weekend and pulled all of my clothes from E out of storage. I feel like I'm only a few weeks away before I'm in maternity attire 100% of the time.

Stretch marks: No - well, not any new ones. A baby and two abdominal surgeries will leave their marks.

Sleep: I finally bought a pregnancy pillow and it's amazing. I am really trying not to get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. If I get out of bed, I'm up for 2+ hours. So annoying. I do wake and switch sleeping sides a lot, but 

Best moment of this week: Not being totally exhausted at work. I'm still a bit nauseous though.  

Miss anything: Working out hardcore. 

Movement:  Yes - I think.  I could have sworn I woke up in the middle of the night around 13 weeks and felt a flutter. However, a few days ago I was sitting on the couch and felt a flutter/popcorn feeling. I felt it again last night while we were putting E to bed. Now I'm just trying not to be crazy and imagine it. 

Food cravings: No cravings. It's more like trying to find things that I don't hate. Food aversions are the worst. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: I'm still queasy, but it has gotten better. I am able to eat more food (selection wise and quantity wise).

Have you started to show yet: I'm pretty sure I'm just looking fat. Ha. There is a girl at work who is due around the same time as me (pregnant with her first) and she is popping  like nobody's business. Super cute. Being my fourth pregnancy and horrible abs, I'm just smushy. 

Gender: We just want a healthy baby! I am 99.9% positive we have another girl on the way.  And yes, baby BRAM (Britney or Cam?) is back. The HR was 169 at the 12 week appt (ultrasound) and 155 at the 16 week appt (by doppler). Time will tell...

Labor signs: Gosh no.

Belly button in or out: In.

Wedding rings on or off: On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Chill, but don't let me start crying. It won't stop. 

Looking forward to: Finding out the gender, telling E (yup, she still doesn't know) and making our news public. I also just want lunchmeat. Pub sub, Jimmy Johns, heck, I'll even eat Subway.
