13 weeks! Well…
14 tomorrow. This week has had SO many appointments that I literally just thought – um – it’s time for the 13 week post Diana. Today.
I’ve done something a little different: given you a glimpse into our past week. From the bump pics to just life here (still) solo parenting and working.
How Far Along: 13 weeks and 6 days!
Size of baby: A lemon.
Sleep: Bella wakes up almost every night around 3 to scream bloody murder about something. Water, toys, I don’t even know. It’s super annoying. She’ll stop as soon as Sam gets home, but until then we’re both just trying to get through it.
Total Weight Gain: None. Which is ok. Only surprising. Where is all the food going?
Symptoms: HEARTBURN. See slide below. Also so much sicker than the first trimester. It’s at the point where blowing my nose make me instantly gag and run for the sink.
Maternity Clothes: All maternity. All the time. I have missed some of these cute pieces so much. Being pregnant is like all of the sudden remembering you have an entire closet full of clothes you forgot about.
Go-to eats: Tuna. Milk. Soups. Chipotle. I think it’s safe to say the cravings have kicked in.
Best moment of the week: (TMI ALERT) In this week’s ultrasound we found my cervix had actually lengthened almost a full cm! Good news for me!
Gender: Not yet but SO SOON.
What I wish people knew: As this pregnancy’s weeks tick closer to when I lost the boys, I do stress more at certain times. It’s hard not to because their loss was so sudden and unexpected. Weekly ultrasounds do help ease some of those fears.
What I’m looking forward to: Sam will be home in 2 weeks and I’m hoping that we can hold off on knowing the sex until then. They do such a thorough check each time it might not be easy.
Milestones: Fingerprints and vocal cords!
