13 Weeks!

How Far Along: 13 Weeks!

Size of baby: About the size of a peach...and you wouldn't believe the tummy issues something small can cause

Total Weight Gain: 2 pounds

Maternity Clothes: Not yet!!

Gender: Still have about 7 weeks before we find out...and I CANNOT wait!!

Movement: From what they tell me, the baby is a wiggle worm at this point but I'm not feeling anything.

Sleep: Yeah, I thought that was supposed to diminish towards the end of pregnancy and when the baby comes, but since I've been so sick and I'm in the process of passing a kidney stone, I don't get much of it. Funny enough, I can sleep fine during the day.

What I miss: Nothing.

Cravings: Nothing in particular but I have been eating a lot juicy stuff like oranges, watermelon, apples, grapes.

Symptoms: 'Round the clock morning sickness, dizzy spells and headaches. Yep, you could guess I am pregnant even if I didn't tell ya. But, at least I know there's something in there still. :0)

What I’m looking forward to:
Finding out what we're having. Boy or girl, I really don't care, I just want to know! And feeling the first movement...And my doctor's appointment on Friday.
(I'm very excited if you can't tell)

No pic this week...I'm not showing anyway so it would just be a weird self-portrait thing...

Oh, and for all you mommas or mommas to be...check out this awesome giveaway!!!

Who says chop sticks are for sushi?

Staying home this weekend paid off! I was so very sad to miss the get together my college girls were having but I'm battling on heck of a kidney stone on top of my morning sickness. Which, have I mentioned the term "morning sickness" is about as big of a lie as "spring" and "fall" are in the great state of Texas. Needless to say, I was head-in-the-trash-can-kinda-sick all weekend! Luckily, things are looking up today.

I have two interviews for a couple of articles I'm writing today so I'm glad to finally be working again! I hate when I have slumps and would prefer to work constantly. I am also in the process of taking over the editor job of the newsletter for my chapter of Junior League. While I'm thrilled to pieces, there is so much work that goes into transferring the job that it's become a pain the size of...well...a kidney stone. :)

Last weekend we out to celebrate my sister's 30th birthday! They had sushi, her fave, I had chicken from the hibachi (gross), and dear nephew had McDonald's. We go to this restaurant so often that the owners let my sister bring in food for her boys. Isn't that sweet? Well, my oldest nephew didn't want to be left out of the chop stick gang.

Poor quality, thank, iPhone. I need to get in a better habit of carrying one of my three cameras around before my little flicker gets here in October!

He kept saying, "Aunt Sissy, want a nugget?" Haha, yes, they call me Sissy. And I answer.

Happy Monday, friends!
