13 Weeks........

13 Weeks
Baby's now the size of a peach!

Your fetus is forming teeth and vocal cords...savor this, their nonfunctional phase. Baby is approaching normal proportions, with his head now only one third the size of his body. And intestines are in the process of moving from the umbilical cord to baby's tummy -- much more convenient.

Due Date: May 6, 2011
Total weight gain: 3.5 lbs. (that is 1.5 more pounds than last week; what the hell??)
Morning Sickness: nope; I get dizzy & a little nauseous but not that often
Cravings: all things sweet, chocolate, sugary & spicy. Damn all the Halloween Candy in this house!!
Sleep: I wish I could get more than a few hours & I have never been able to nap.
I can't live without: Water; I am so thirsty all the time.
I miss: the way my jeans used to fit
I am looking forward to: decorating the nursery; there is so much out there & most of it is so adorable!
Milestones: Getting out of 1st trimester
Exercise: Walk with Brayden 5 mornings a week & let me tell you our neighbor is very hilly & his stroller is VERY heavy so I get a very good workout. I started my prenatal Pilate's this week too.
Diet: I see it & eat it all diet............I have gotta get control!!
Movement: Not yet
Gender: Boy?? (we were told boy by our specialist & although we don't think anything will change we are waiting until our appt. on the 23d before we begin decorating......truth be told we are already calling the baby by his name so I hope they were right!!)
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Shot:

& just because he is so cute; here is Brayden (we were playing "ride the horsey")
