13 Week Preggo Update

I love reading bloggers such as Schnelle, Veronika's Blushing, or Perfection Possibilities pregnancy updates so I've decided to do the same and keep track of my pregnancy this way.  I think this will just be a monthly thing and I'll summarize the month instead.  I also loved how Merrick wore the same dress when she did her updates so I'm going to try to remember to do the same.  I'm a copy cater.  I own it :-)

Weight Gain?:  I lost weight when I was sick but I'm pretty sure I've gained.  I'll find out on Friday at our next appointment.

Maternity Clothes?:  I tried to fight this as long as I could but my bump popped VERY early on.  I had to buy maternity bottoms just because yoga pants aren't acceptable at my office nor in court.  How I wish they were...

Symptoms?:  Thankfully, the nausea has gone away but now I have some bad acid reflux.  I had reflux before getting pregnant but it is definitely worse now.  I find that drinking chocolate milk helps it get better.

Sleep?:  Yes and no.  I sleep is spurts like 2 hours here or 3 hours there.  My husband bought me a Snoogle but he seems to use it more than me lol

Do I miss anything?:  Soft cheeses, cold deli meats, sleeping throughout the night, sushi

Movement?:  I sometimes think I feel a heartbeat or movement but I think it's too early for that.

Anything making you sick or queasy?:  Smells!!  Oh my goodness, air fresheners will literally make me sick.  Ahem...mom's air freshener.  The smell of chicken grosses me out too.

Food cravings?:  I mostly have cravings 'of the day' but lately cocoa krispies cereal, tomatoes, watermelon, strawberries, chocolate, and Japanese food.

Have you started to show?:  ABSOLUTELY!  It's crazy how early my belly popped.  Although I now love seeing the bump grow, I thought I would have a couple months to continue wearing my regular clothes but nope.  Belly is out in full force.

Boy or a Girl?:  Don't know yet but we finally decided on names!  The girl name came pretty easy and I love love love it.  The boy name was a little harder but we've finally decided.  So if it's a girl, I'll be calling her baby "O" until she's born or, if it's a boy, he'll be baby "L" :-)

Best Moment This Week?:  We're looking forward to our appointment on Friday and hoping that our little one is still healthy.

  19. You look darling!!!! I love your dress and you wear it so well. And your shoes are FAB!

  20. You are looking great! When i got preggos, my stomach grew immediately, I could not fit into my clothes by the 2nd month. I remember the 1st time I wore maternity jeans - I was thinking...why can't I wear them after pregnancy, they are so comfortable.


  21. i feel your pain with the acid reflux! i chugged tums my entire pregnancy! it was out of control! Apple cider vinegar is a wonderful home remedy for heart burn(1 small capfull in a few ounces of water) but who wants to drink something so disgusting while pregnant???? it also lowers blood pressure ! I had toxemia at the end of my pregnancy and was induced 10 days early and when i came home from the hospital I was still having High BP and tried the apple cider vinegar and it brought it down to normal range OVER NIGHT!!!! i wished i would have done this during my pregnancy like my NM (Nurse Midwife) had recommended..

  22. Cute! I love your dress! I was introduced to your blog when you were featured on Franish's blog last week. Love your style - so classy and cute. I'm excited to see how you dress your cute little bump :)
