13 Weeks and Bumpdate

*We've made it to the 2nd Trimester!*

How many weeks:
13 Weeks
*4th Month of Pregnancy*

How big is baby:
The size of a peach

Maternity Clothes:
Yes.  I have one pair of jeans that fit that are not maternity.
Leggings and sweater dresses have also been super comfortable this past week.

Weight Gain Alert!
still 126 lbs

The Sneak was waving on the ultrasound this week.

Food Cravings:
Chocolate Milk, Cinnamon Toast, Fruit, Dr. Pepper

Food Aversions:
Fried Food, Chick fil A, Arby's curly fries

We should know either at the end of December or the first of January!

Fatigue in the morning, backache, frequent urination, headaches, sensitive to smells, forgetfulness, increased appetite, thirsty, drooling, weepiness, mood swings, changes in breasts, dry and itchy skin, hot flashes

What do I miss:

Best moment of the week:
Our first appointment with Dr. Mac was great.  This pregnancy already feels much less stressful with no more need for weekly visits.

What am I looking forward to:
Being pregnant through the holidays and finding out the baby's gender.

This week brings us to the 2nd Trimester!  The Sneak and I are a third of the way there.

"Tiny bones are beginning to form arms and legs, the intestines are beginning to move from the umbilical cord to the abdomen, and the vocal cords are well under construction.  Baby may also be able to get his/her thumb into their mouth."

I think it's funny that I'm showing so early, but have only gained 3 lbs so far.  


  1. Looking good! You'll gain weight later in the trimester.

  2. You look fabulous! I have a book that is "co-authored" by a cat named Sneaky Pie. Whenever I see "Sneaky Pie" on my shelf, I think of you and your sweet little one, so I think that is going to be my nickname for the baby. If you hate it I promise to at least not use it around you (even thought it's going to be in my head forever!)

  3. Yay for second tri! Your little bump is so cute!

  4. Looking good! Glad things are less stressful now :-) I too am showing a lot but haven't gained weight.

  5. Glad everything is going good. I hear you on the bump showing and no real weight gain. I dropped 4 pounds in the first few weeks and then gained about 5 pounds so I am really up 1, but I feel like I am starting to look huge. Anyways congrats on making it to the second trimester.
