I haven't been very good at chronicling this pregnancy...so no better time than the present right? I borrowed this from Pricilla at It only takes one time...not!. I thought it was a great summary for the week to week updates.
How far along: 13 weeks, 4 days
Total Weight Gain: 7.5 lbs
Symptoms: I feel amazing. Everyone keeps saying "oh just wait...you'll feel it soon" but I think that they are just a bunch of Debbie downers! My MS has subsided, the breast tenderness has almost subsided, and the headaches seem to be fewer and fewer.
Stretch Marks: None yet...which is amazing considering how fast my tummy is growing!
Sleep: I've been sleeping pretty well. I get up 1-2 times in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom....but so far I can fall right back asleep after!
Best Moment Last Week: Starting my 2nd trimester!!!
Movement: Nothing definite yet. I felt a few "bubbles" last week...but nothing this week. I absolutely can't wait to be able to feel them!! I am really hoping that both placentas are posterior so I will be able to feel the kicks from the outside early!
Food Cravings: Root beer.
What I Miss: Sushi. Weird. I know.
What am I looking forward to: Feeling the first kicks!
Milestones: This past weekend we went to a consignment store and found a few great nursery items!!
How is Daddy? Excited. He picked out most of the things at the store for the nursery and even found us a book on twins. Last night we sat on the couch and he rubbed by belly for a while. It was so sweet and felt so good on the stretching muscles!
