baby Q bump watch - week 13

[to be fair, this isn't really a baby bump. it's bloat... and whatever fat was there prior to getting knocked up. don't judge me.]

how far along? today, I'm 13 weeks, 1 day. this photo was taken yesterday morning. 

how big is the baby? the baby is the size of a peach - about 2.9 inches long and weighing in at almost a full ounce. woohoo!

total weight gain: nadda. in fact, I've lost about 6-7lbs. thank you morning sickness. 

sleep: dude. I've never slept so great in my life. if I could just sleep like this forever (I know, I know, it ain't happenin'), I'd never need Ambien again. 

best moment of the week: listening to that little babysaurus' heartbeat at the doctor's office yesterday. 

food cravings: lately it's been anything crisp and fresh - been eating lots of apples, which I'm thankful for. before now, I wanted nothing but JUNK. 

food aversions: tacos. it's really the only thing I don't want. 

symptoms: serious round ligament pain - it's down in the right side of my groin, and it hurts pretty frequently. I asked my doctor about it and she said that while it is lower than normal, it's definitely ligament/muscle related, so I shouldn't be worried. 

I'm still really tired as well, and have been experiencing some slight dizziness here and there. 

I think my boobs are growing by the minute. they are ridiculously huge. I think I'll have to go bra shopping soon. needless to say, this is the only symptom that Sean is enjoying. 

other than that, the dreaded morning (slash ALL DAY) sickness seems to have finally left the building. 

gender: we'll find out on April 5th. I think it's a girl, and my sono tech at my NT scan also thinks it's a girl. we have no preference... just a healthy baby, please. 

most looking forward to: honestly? I look forward to waking up everyday knowing that I have a little nugget growing in there. there's nothing like this feeling of joy. /mush

what I miss right now: mostly turkey sandwiches and bikram yoga. 

next appointment: March 23rd, which just happens to be my 26th birthday. :)


  1. You're the same amount along that a good friend of mine is and she has a pretty significant bump already... so don't blame it on the bloat, you've got a baby in there :D

  2. Oh my goodness! I definitely missed the pregnancy announcement (I haven't really been online for the last two months) but I'm SOOOOOO excited for you!!!

    Congrats pretty lady! You're going to be SUCH a good mommy!
