Week 13

Two pictures this week. I address what I call my fat roll moving north at the bottom. Otherwise it's bump and hidden bump.

 13 Weeks

 13 Weeks
(and yes I changed boots after I picked a sweater. I'm too lazy to take it all off an redo the pictures)

How far along: 13 weeks

How big is baby: (From the Bump) The size of a peach! (whoa) She's about 2.9 inches long and weighs about .81 ounces, and -- proportion-wise -- her head's now about 1/3 the size of her body.Can you believe she's forming vocal cords and teeth? Even though she's still teeny, she already has fingerprints. Her intestines are moving from the umbilical cord to their more permanent place, in her tummy.

Weight gain/loss: I'm back to my prepregnancy weight.

Stretch marks: None yet.

Sleep: This has been a rough week. I tend to wake up at 4 or 5 to pee, but lately I cannot fall back asleep. It's meant a lot of very early mornings and a return to naps.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: If you follow on Instagram (I'm f_a_h there) then you saw my burger craving, the making of the burger, and then not being able to eat the burger because of the smell of it cooking. Pretty much if I don't smell it cooking I'm fine. It's mainly with meat, but of course I haven't really tried cooking much lately.

Movement: None and not expecting it for awhile still.

What I'm loving: The end of the first trimester. So glad it's over!

What I'm looking forward to: My midwife appointment tomorrow. I'm seeing the lead midwife at the practice this time.

Best moment of the week: It's been little things that I'm enjoying. Like still being able to haul 400 pounds of dirt to the garden. Granted I had help loading it from the Lowes employee, but I still did it. Shaving my legs. Painting my toes. Being able to easily wipe the dogs' muddy paws. I'm wondering how long I'm going to be able to easily do these things.

How I'm feeling: I'm finally feeling better. Or at least I don't feel like crud. I did hit a wall the other day, but it's usually just temporary. I don't feel the need to spend all day in bed or to take naps. It's so nice to actually be able to get some things done.

Random things I didn't know/Problems/Questions: Thanks for the underwear advice from last week! This kind of falls under "what I'm looking forward to" but I'm throwing it down here. I think the toughest thing for me is comparing myself to others that are sometimes not as far along or farther along than me. I think the hardest part of the first trimester is that you feel like absolute crap (my experience here) and have absolutely nothing to "show" for it. I feel like my "bump" is really just my fat roll moving north. I know it will come, and I do still enjoy not having the whole world know I'm pregnant. I guess that's the downside to showing early is that you do have to share it with everyone earlier than you maybe want to. There's always pluses and minuses to everything I guess, but it's still hard to not get into a funk about it sometimes.
