13 Weeks

I can't believe another week has come and gone! I really look forward to Monday's now since that's when I start a new milestone. 13 weeks was a weird one for sure.. Monday started out really good but I think I pushed myself too hard and it threw me into a migraine and lots of puking. It took several days to recover from that. We had our 2nd doctor appointment and saw our baby on the ultrasound bouncing around! Heartbeat was at 161. I talked with my doctor about migraine solutions and I feel better about some of the options he gave me. My migraines are really intense and Tylenol just doesn't cut it. I had been free of my migraines for a good year and so now that they are back in my pregnancy has caused some fear and worry... chronic anything is enough to make someone crazy. The doctor said we could do our gender ultrasound in 3 or 4 weeks, so I definitely made the appointment for 3 weeks haha. We'll find out on April 11, but won't officially find out until that Friday when we celebrate with family and some close friends. I have entrusted one of my friends to know the gender before us so she can get the necessary things as part of the reveal! I couldn't be more excited! A little 2 weeks away!

Thursday was Carson's 26th birthday! He went to work and all he wanted was his favorite meal and an old fashioned banana cream pie (I made one for Thanksgiving and now it's his favorite! We have tried a million different banana cream pies out there and agree this recipe was the best). I was really, really sick that day but luckily the crock pot does all the work ;) We had creamy italian chicken over noodles and I made his pie later in the day. He came home to a crying wife because I felt so bad his bday was so lame but he assured me it was a good day. I was able to eat some of the food and I made him blow out a single candle on a piece of pie.

Friday I was feeling a million times better. It's crazy how awful Tuesday-Thursday were! I took my mom's 10 year anniversary photos that night and Carson and I went to Viva Chicken for dinner. So yum! Saturday was a chill day and I did bridals that night. On Sunday Carson and I drove to Vegas for an engagement shoot and had some cheesecake factory and went to Ikea and got some stuff for the baby's room. I am trying to be more aware of my body and what it needs and when I need to slow down and that has helped me remain feeling pretty good! I go to bed really early (for me) and sleep like 10 hours every night lately! I find in the mornings I start to toss and turn more trying to get comfortable but luckily my body pillow has been doing a good job.

How far along? 13 weeks! 

How big is the peanut? A Lemon! Although some of the apps think that it's a lemon at 14 weeks so who really knows. It says almost 3 inches and almost 1 oz!  

Total weight gain/loss? I am down another 2lbs from all the puking earlier in the week. I've been slowly starting to eat again and managed all 3 meals on Friday-Sunday! So total weight loss since I first found out I was pregnant is 16lbs. My pants are saggy. 

Maternity clothes? Not yet! 

Sleep? Good! I need like 9-10 hours a night right now. It's been niccccceeeee.
Best moment this week? Seeing our baby! 

Symptoms? Super sick at the beginning of the week! But as I got better it's been burping. I burp so much. I hate it. 

Food cravings? Slushes and wraps. Like chicken and lots of lettuce in a yummy fluffy tortilla. I had a cherry limeade slush from Sonic and I was in heaven. 

Food aversions? nothing really!

Gender? I still think boy! We'll find out in about 2ish weeks!

Labor signs? None! Except I have probably growing pelvic pains... baby is doubling in weight every week recently.

Belly button in or out? In!

What I miss? Currently nothing. If you asked me earlier in the week I would have said feeling good haha!

What I'm looking forward to? Finding out the gender and our gender reveal.

Bump? Just my already existent belly I had before pregnancy. I am losing weight everywhere but there because belly fat is so much harder to lose haha. My baby is really low still so when I take "bump" photos it's really just my belly I've always had the past few years haha!

Here's our cute video! There's also more photos on my instagram @jostlenna
