If I hadn't skipped last week's photo, I totally would have skipped tonight's. See.......I..........uh......... didn't get to shower today. I was too busy cleaning (most of which I also skipped last week) and I just figured I would right before I get in bed. I love getting in bed all warm and clean. But I forgot that today there would be a picture taken, and as much as I wanted Cody to just chop my head off of the photo, I didn't. So here I am in all my pregnant grimy glory. You're welcome. And just for kicks at the very end of the post I've added a photo of my 13 week picture from Luke. Yep, I'm definitely out there a little more this time around! Also, I spent about 45 minutes trying to get them side by side but I failed. Sorry.
How Far Along: 13 Weeks
Size of baby: a medium shrimp (doesn't this seem smaller than a lime?) (also, Cody asked me yesterday what the new size for this week was, and when I said shrimp, he laughed. He admitted that he doesn't really think of the baby in terms of a baby per se, but as what ever the food thing is for the week. So according to him I've got a little shrimpy swimming around in there.)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I forgot to weigh at Mom's this weekend, but I have a dr's appointment on Friday so we'll just have to wait till then. Since this is the last week of the first trimester, and the target weight gain is 2-5 lbs, lets pray it's stayed under 5!
Maternity Clothes: Well, I already shared how I allowed myself to wear maternity pants on Thanksgiving so that I could comfortably stuff myself full of food. But other than that I don't think I really wore any maternity clothes this week. That's changing fast though. Sunday morning while I was getting ready for church I tried on 3 different skirts and not one of them would zip. Looks like I'm gonna have to make the switch there, and unfortunately all of my maternity clothes are much more casual than I care to wear to church.
Gender: I had a dream this week that it was a boy, so there goes that theory.
Movement: I think I did feel a couple of little flutters, maybe! But, most of this week I wasn't feeling good in the area of digestion, so maybe not. Please kick me soon baby!
Sleep: Good. I can still sleep on my tummy so I'm a happy gal.
What I miss: I really could have gone for some sushi this week.
Cravings: hmmm, none really. I thought I was craving queso, but then I got some and....not so much.
Symptoms: Probably just all the tummy troubles this week. My face has been looking pretty good, but the acne has moved to my shoulders. Yikes! Good thing it's winter!
Best Moment this week: Thanksgiving food. Do I really have to wait a whole year to eat it again?
