Baby #2 - 13 weeks

Hello, second trimester!!! I remember this being the best, in terms of energy levels and overall comfort, so bring it on!! :)

How far along? 13 weeks

Total weight gain: 1 lb (this is according to our janky scale)

Baby is the size of a: peach

Maternity clothes? Not yet, mostly wearing running clothes that are a little looser, or maxi dresses.

Stretch marks? None

Sleep: Overall, my sleep is really bad. Ever since having Jacob, I haven't been able to sleep through the night. Although now that I'm pregnant, I would say I'm sleeping a bit better, but getting up atleast once to pee.

Best moment this week: I don't know about an exact moment, but I've been feeling better! Will get to that in a bit.

Miss anything? Get ready for it.......................wine. Red, white, rose...don't matter. I want it. Now. Its going to be a loooong 6 months!

Movement: None yet

Food cravings: nothing really, well besides wine. Ha! I am loving deli sandwiches right now, but that's kinda normal for me.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Everything! I couldn't even make a breakfast scramble the other day because the thought of combining the potatoes, egg and bacon make me sick. LOL!

Gender: I'm not really sure?!?! Some moments I think girl, but then I think we're boy people..? Soo..we'll just have to wait and see!

Labor Signs: Nothing, thank goodness! Too early for that nonsense!

Symptoms: Bloating, burping, gas, nausea, exhaustion, baby brain

Belly Button in or out? In

Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly happy. If I get hungry or sleepy, I tend to be easily annoyed, but for the most part I'm ok! Hehe :)

Similarities/differences between last pregnancy: These pregnancies really couldn't be any more different. I remember at 10 and 11 weeks I traveled to New York and Pittsburg. While I was obviously more tired than normal, I was totally fine! There is no way in heck I would've been able to do that this time around! With the constant nausea and queasiness, I'm lucky to leave the couch! LOL!

Looking forward to: Jacob turns TWO on Thursday and I'm already preparing my little heart. It just doesn't seem possible that my sweet little baby can be that old already! It literally seems like yesterday that we were bringing him home from the hospital. I think this is also part of the reason I was "ok" with having another baby so soon after Jacob. It really does go by so quickly, and those miserable sleepless nights miraculously get wiped from your memory.


  1. Glad you're feeling better!! I had a really rough first trimester myself when I was pregnant and I remember how nice it was to turn that corner!
