13 weeks

How far along: 13 weeks! Thir-teeeeen weeks folks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Total weight change: almost 5 lbs! I can't believe it. I went from a negligible 1lb gain to suddenly gaining 5 lb over the course of a week! Is that even possible?? Seriously going to start watching what I eat from now forward.

Maternity clothes: can't bring myself to wear the one pair of maternity work pants I bought. All I want to live in these days is leggings. At this point, I just look fat... like I ate too much. Actually looking forward to having a larger belly and looking pregnant, vs just fat.

Stretch marks: no

Sleep: on and off. Some nights I sleep fine... like last night where I fell asleep at 11pm and woke up at 7am, not having woken up once and slept the most restful 8 hours of deep sleep...but other nights I have to pee almost every 2 hours. Insane. Oh and my back's been killing me, making it uncomfortable to sleep as well. Started seeing my chiropractor again.

Best moment this week: easily the NT scan sonogram on Tuesday

Movement: I had something about 2 weeks back that felt like flutters in my belly. I know everyone will laugh and say it's too early, but it wasn't ligament pain and it wasn't gas as those feel distinctly different. That hasn't happened since. I can't wait to start feeling the little one!

Food cravings: McD chicken nuggets, sour things, french fries, apples, mangoes, pineapple, yogurt

Gender: I don't know why but when I think of this baby, I think of it as male and find myself referring to it as a "he"?! Have any of you pregnant ladies had similar strong feelings?

What I miss: sushi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Though today for lunch I had a tempura roll and a (cooked) shrimp and avocado roll. I could eat sushi every day.

What I'm looking forward to next: the next visit with the OB, next week

Milestones: 2nd Tri!!

Okay, so you and I are living parallel lives right now! Congrats to you on 13 weeks and the second trimester!! I am seriously craving sushi...every night. And I don't think you are crazy about the movement. About a week and a half ago I felt a very distinct twitching feeling down low where the ute is...! And I also have a strong feeling about a boy!!!! Yay to us!

Welcome to 2nd tri! Now is when things are supposed to be fun. They have been for me. I am thoroughly enjoying this pregnancy these days! I hope this is the case for you!

Yay! Congrats on 13 weeks and welcome to the 2nd trimester! :)

I also had the 5 pounds in a week thing...it almost made me cry..but you have to consider all that's going on with your body. It's not necessarily just 'fat', you know? You'll start 'looking' preggo before you know it!

And yes, I just knew we were having a girl before we found out for sure. Maybe your inclination is right. :)

I forgot to answer your question about the doppler! It's called a Baby Sound B Fetal Doppler...here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Baby-Sound-B-Fetal-Doppler/dp/B002HK5B50

Happy 2nd Trimester! I had very strong feelings that our baby was a girl and she is - I always pictured a baby girl. You may be right!

Yay for 13 weeks! Mmm I had a craving for chicken nuggets a few weeks ago too... I also love that sweet and sour dipping sauce!

When I was pregnant with my daughter a bazillion years ago, I remember knowing it was a girl from the first trimester. We settled on a girl's name right away, but never agreed on a boy's name. And sure enough, I was right. That said, you do have a 50/50 chance of getting it right so...who knows if it's really intuition.

Congrats on the pregnancy!
