How far along?: 13 weeks 1 day
Total weight gain/loss: 3 lbs.
The Bump: My lower belly pooch looks like I’m 20 weeks along post-meals!
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: It already happened this past weekend! On Mother’s Day, Mr.Dubs surprised me with this beautiful flower arrangement and a pre-Mother’s day card “from baby” (And my cousin who is a doting mother of two beautiful babies, dropped off a mama-to-be mother’s day card!)
Maternity Clothes: DH took me out for brunch and maternity clothes shopping for Mother’s Day this past Saturday! Bought a wrap dress that is non-maternity friendly and a tank from Gap. And I also got looser tops and blouses from Express that are pre/post maternity wearable! (I’m all about versatility and getting the most for
my Mr.Dubs’ $$s worth! )
Symptoms: Fatigue and a new one: constant need to pee! I even went in for an unexpected Dr.’s appointment this afternoon. Alls well, but it’s still irritating! (On a tangent, what was supposed to be my week 14 check-up has been pushed back to week 16; and then we’ll get to see baby after that at week 19!)
Belly Button in or out?: In.
Food Cravings/Aversions: I had a bad craving for Potbelly’s at the end of last week. I was even more peeved when Mr.Dubs got sidetracked grocery shopping and didn’t make it there on time!! So I got it for dinner on Friday. MMMMM so good!
Milestones: Heard LO’s heartbeat again today, 160 bpm!
Announcing via facebook, blog, and twitter! It’s such a relief to have it out in the open and we were surrounded with support from so many friends and family. It was a great feeling! <3
Bump Pic: 13 weeks (I still fit into non-maternity jeans, but have them unbuttoned in this pic; they’re getting too snug now!)
