First, my standard picture:
Now this is the same shirt I put on last week to show how not-pregnant I look in most of my regular, less form fitting clothes. But now I can see a tiny bump in it!
This shirt is from an order of Old Navy maternity clothes I got this week! It was probably a tad early to order them, but they were all on sale plus an additional 40% off as a Cyber Monday promo! Anyway, the looser type shirts just look huge on me at this point, but when I put this one on my husband said,
"You really look pregnant!." (By the way, do you think I should return this shirt? It doesn't seem like it would have much room to grow in, although I really like it for right now....but not sure how long it would last?!)
And lastly, this is a regular non-maternity sweater that I was going to wear yesterday. I ended up not wearing it because I saw how warm it was as I was leaving the house and changed to something with more layers, but anyway...
Total Weight Gain: +2.25 lbs. I know I said last week that I thought I had gained 5 lbs, but when I went to the doctor this week I had gained only a quarter of a pound in the last four weeks....so I really think our scale is just a piece of junk!! It's always 10 lbs. off, which I accounted for, but now I'm thinking it is just plain inaccurate and hard to read. So I actually bought a new scale yesterday in hopes of a more accurate weekly measurement. I wasn't too worried about the weight gain, but it was still a little nice to know it hasn't been as much as I thought.
Continuing symptoms: gassy, br.east tenderness (even less this week) & enlargement, indigestion (only a tiny bit), and cramping.
New symptoms this week: None - the cramping was a little more this week with some new sort of jabs and stabs that made me a little nervous before my appointment. But apparently it's just the uterus growing...
Sleep: Sleeping well.Thankful.
What I'm Eating: I never really lost my appetite or changed my eating much, but my eating felt especially "back to normal" this week.
Cravings: None. But still loving that glass of milk before bed!
Special pregnancy moments: THIRTEEN weeks! Even more officially in the second trimester!! Seeing the baby again at my appointment and having a great appointment overall. Getting an over-the-belly ultrasound because I am farther along. Starting to wean off of the progesterone (I'm taking one every other day until Wednesday). Scheduling the anatomy scan. My belly growing (I still can't believe I'm going to have a belly - eek!!) and even having a friend (who knows I'm pregnant) point out that she noticed my belly. :) Feeling a tiny bump even when lying on my back. Sharing the news with a few more friends and having a friend so excited she called, emailed, and texted at the same time to get me to call her back right away - so cute. Anticipating telling "the world" in the next few days!!!!
