Pregnancy Update!

Week: 13.

Due date: November 28.

Symptoms: Nauseous and exhausted 24/7! :( Plus my eczema is flaring up.

Feeling: Still nervous about miscarrying but getting more hopeful since I heard the heartbeat last week. :)

Cravings: Bland food, starches mostly.

Aversions: Almost everything.

Sleep: I sleep a LOT. Nausea makes me drool in my sleep. >_<

Health: I'm a little anemic but other than that, good.

Exercise: I can't clean the house let alone exercise. :(

Labor signs: NO!

Wedding rings: I got my engagement ring when I was prego with Kay so I can wear that, but not my wedding band.

Looking forward to: Ultrasound next week!!!

Missing: Coffeeeeee!

Weight gain: 17 pounds already, ugh!

Movement: I think I felt fluttering at bed time the past few nights but not sure.

Stretchmarks: Just the old ones on my hips.

Gender: Don't know yet.

BabyCenter update: Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce. This is the last week of your first trimester, and your risk of miscarriage is now much lower than earlier in pregnancy. Next week marks the beginning of your second trimester, a time of relative comfort for many women who see early pregnancy symptoms such as morning sickness and fatigue subside. More good news: Many couples also notice a distinct libido lift around this time. Birth is still months away, but your breasts may have already started making colostrum, the nutrient-rich fluid that feeds your baby for the first few days after birth, before your milk starts to flow.

Other stuff: Kaylee talks to my belly every day and gives it kisses. She is convinced it's a girl and she wants to name her Brynna. She says if it's a boy, she'll name him "Boybee" hahah.

Cute blog & family. Following you back from the hop. By the way, I always breastfed in public and that was over 20 years ago! Keep it up, it is normal.
