Let me back up. 2012 proved to be a trying year. I lost two people who
Now, this pregnancy has not been all bliss. In fact, I have been pretty miserable. It started with horrible heartburn, nausea, and vomiting, followed by horrible stomach pains that we believe could be my gallbladder. I had some tests run last week that will hopefully give us some answers. I basically go to work, and then come home and go to bed. I don't know what I would do without my amazing husband who has taken on all of the housework, laundry, cooking, and taking care of our very busy 2 1/2 year old:) I'm very thankful for this miracle of life growing inside of me, but I would totally be ok if all of this sickness went away! I'm going to try and do a better job of updating our blog especially now that we have another one on the way.
Here's a picture of me at 13 weeks. I definitely began showing much faster with this one. Other than being horribly sick, everything else about this pregnancy is different, too. I'm going to try and do monthly stats, so here goes nothing:
How Far Along: 13 weeks (tomorrow)
Weight Gain/Loss: Lost 13 pounds (the only positive part of being so sick)
Maternity Clothes? No
Sleep: Normal, other than not being able to sleep on my stomach
Best Moment This Week: hearing a heartbeat
Cravings: vegetables!!! totally opposite of my cravings with Becca:)
Gender Guess: BOY!!! I feel like this pregnancy is totally different, so I'm going with boy! We'll find out on Saturday, March 23rd.
Size of Baby: the size of an egg; almost 3 inches long
Movement: every website says you can't feel movement this early on, but I beg to differ. I constantly feel flutters on my left side, and that's where they found the heartbeat last week!
