Week 13 Pregnancy Update- Peach

11 Aug

This is my last week in first trimester and I must say it is a little bittersweet.  It is exciting because I will be moving on the second trimester but also a little sad because all of a sudden my slow moving pregnancy is already a third of the way over.  Where does time fly by when your thinking each day seemed like a week.  I just can’t believe I’ll be moving out of first trimester and this is my last first trimester post!  It is a good thing!

How Big is Baby?

A peach!  I love peaches!  : )

According to thebump.com:

Your fetus is forming teeth and vocal cords… savor this, their non-functional phase. Baby is approaching normal proportions, with a head now only one third the size of the body. Intestines are in the process of moving from the umbilical cord to baby’s tummy. (Much more convenient.)

According to babycenter.com:

Fingerprints have formed on your baby’s tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you’re having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce.

How I’m Feeling Physically

I am feeling so much more like my old self this week.  I feel amazing!  Well, despite the random tiredness that seems to take over my body!  : )

I got in five workouts this week, the most I’ve done since probably around 5 weeks of pregnancy.  I am finally getting to the point where working out isn’t making my body extremely tired the rest of the day.  For the past few weeks, any day I worked out, I would be completely exhausted and ready for bed by noon.  Yes, as in 12pm. 

I’m still having a heaviness to my stomach on and off.  It’s usually when I take a seat to sit down, I can feel something foreign in my stomach that isn’t usually there (baby! <3).  It is very weird, but I love it because I know the baby is there!

How I’m Feeling Emotionally

I just keep getting super excited.  Like I mentioned above, I am in shock my pregnancy is a third of the way over.  I remember when I was having really bad MS, I thought I would never see the light at the end of the tunnel and here I am now, barely remembering how sick I was for that month and a half!  Time has been going by so fast and I can’t wait to meet Baby Conrad already!!!

I’ve also started getting hit by the nesting bug.  I have a list of everything I want to do to our home before Baby C arrives.  I think I’m going to start getting things done this next weekend.  I figure if I do one household task a week, I’ll be in great shape long before the baby gets here!

Odd Ramblings

  • Sleep:  I’m still sleeping 8 hours a night and sleep 9 if I can get to bed early enough.
  • Naps:  I’m still napping as much as possible, but I’m not falling asleep as fast as I used to.  I now lay and read a little or watch a little TV.  Sometimes I fall asleep and the naps last a couple hours and sometimes just laying down and relaxing is enough to recharge my juices!
  • Foods I’m Craving:  I’m still on a fruit kick.  I’ve also been craving salmon.  Yum!  On a positive note, I can eat green salads again!  Yay!  I’ve been lacking in my leafy greens and I feel so much better knowing that the baby is now getting some!  : )
  • Foods I can’t Stand:  Not many anymore.  I planned a meal of fish tacos, but that didn’t seem appetizing at all.  So maybe just fish tacos at this point?
  • What I’m Most Excited For:  I think I mentioned last week, the gender scan, but besides that, I can’t wait to hear Baby C’s heartbeat again in two weeks!  I treasure that little sound!  I’m also starting to get really excited to feel the baby move.  I’m pretty sure I felt the baby move once back when I was in my 10th week.  It lasted about 5 seconds and I’ve never felt it again.  I’m really looking forward to feeling the baby and comparing!
