Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker

Um guys??

I'm 13 WEEKS PREGNANT TODAY!! Helllooooo second trimester! If you want to get technical with me, you will say I won't be in the second tri until Saturday, but I'm saying today; because that's what my doctor says :)

I feel like a whole new woman! I have my energy back & feel great (most of the time!).

We had our 2nd pre-natal appointment today. My appointment was scheduled at 9:50 & we didn't get back into our room until 11:15!! I guess that's what you have to deal with when you see the baby doctor. After waiting all that time, we only saw the dr. for 10 minutes or so. Thank goodness he didn't make any smart remarks about me "still being pregnant" or I would have flipped! Basically all he did was listen to the heartbeat, which was considerably lower than the last time we heard it (145bpm). But he said that is very normal, so I'm not worried.

He said I can come back in 3 weeks to get an ultrasound and (he will try) determine the sex!!!!!!
3 WEEKS!!! Hubby & I are so excited! My little sister just so happens to be home for spring break that week, so she will be able to come with us!! PERFECT!

Shall we do the survey?

How far along?: 13 weeks!!!
How big is baby?: the size of a peach. Yummy!
Weight Gain?: I'm up 1.5lbs from a month ago, so... 7.5 lbs. Scary.
Stretch Marks?: NO, PLEASE!!!!
Maternity Clothes?: I just went yesterday to Old Navy & found some ADORABLE skinny maternity jeans! & some boyfriend style capri's for $19!! I tried on a size 2 first. They fit perfectly, but I figured I should get a 4 since I will be growing! I'm wearing my jeans today & they are SO comfortable. I was so done with the BeBand.
Sleep?: Once I finally GET to sleep, I'm good. But man, my back is seriously KILLING me lately. I think I pulled a muscle or have a slipped disc, because I am in PAIN!
Best moment this week?: Hearing baby's heartbeat

Food cravings?: nothing really special. Food in general.
Movement?: not yet, that I can feel :(
Gender?: we will find out on the 24th! I'm still saying girl...
What I miss?: Being able to sit & walk & sleep without being in pain. I better get used to this!
Belly button?: still in but it's getting wider.. is that normal??
What I'm looking forward to?: Finding out what sex baby D is!
Milestone?: Reaching the second trimester. I am so thankful :)

I didn't have time to get a picture this morning, so I have to enlist my lovely co-worker to take this. Hence, the creepy awkward smile, but, I do it for you guys ;)


  1. yay!!!! 13 weeks!!! what a milestone in itself, girl!! and you look AWESOME!!! here's to hoping these next three weeks FLY by and you get to find out if you'll be buying lots of pink or lots of blue!!! <3

  2. LOL! Love the pic!!! Congrats on Tri2 WOO HOO!!!! I don't know if my bb ever got wider just popped out, but I am sure it's normal

  3. Congratulations on 2nd trimester! How exciting that you get to find out the sex so soon! I am only 6 and 1/2 weeks along so I have a ways to go yet, but I already can't wait for 2nd tri. haha Also, your baby bump is adorable! :)

  4. Okay, well based on the heart rate, Im changing my vote to boy...but if you think its a girl, momma's instincts are usually right, but if the heart rate is lower than 150-160 I think its a boy *wink* Congratulations on the SECOND TRIMESTER RELIEF! Lol, its wonderful to feel good and enjoy your pregnancy finally :o)

  5. You look gorgeous! And YAY for 2nd tri! Your Old Navy must be better than mine because I barely found the one pair of jeans I got, unless I really am just THAT picky which is very possible. Maybe I will check exciting about finding out the gender!!! :)

  6. I am SO jealous your dr is letting you come in at 16 weeks!!! Mine said I had to wait until 20 weeks and I almost cried! Glad to hear you are feeling better!

  7. WOOHOO 2nd tri!! You look fantastic! I can definately see a baby bump too!

  8. YEAH; the baby bump is soon to follow :)


    I'm glad your feeling much better. and you just look adorable with your baby bump in your picture.

    Can I guess the sex?? I guess boy. But only because Cooper's heartbeat was about the same as your babies. That really means nothing but I think its fun to guess. I can't wait to hear what your having.

    Oh and the skinny maternity jeans, SO FUN! Take a picture once you start wearing them. You'll be such a stylish mama.

  10. Congrats! I'm definitely starting to see a little bump there. Glad to hear you're feeling much better.

    PS: You have a lovely new award waiting for you on my blog :)

  11. OMG I'm seriously near tears because I feel like you actually have a bump. You look SOOO beautiful. And I wish I could be with you during your pregnancy! :( I'm so happy that you're finally in 2nd tri & can't wait to find out what baby D is!
    I LOVE YOU!!!!!

  12. Congrats on 2nd tri! Hopefully it'll be smooth sailing from here on out!
