I hit the 13 week mark yesterday, hooray! There is some debate on if this marks the beginning of the second trimester or not. Both of the emails I got yesterday about week 13 said I was now in the second trimester, so I’m not sure what to believe! Regardless, the bump is definitely GROWING, and this past week has led to some changing symptoms. Let’s take a look:
Bella is SUCH a camera hog! I sense some sibling rivalry/jealousy already! I took this photo right after a terribly crappy run, sorry for the look of exhaustion and death.
Symptoms: round ligament pain, constipation, bloating, acne, fatigue, nausea in the evenings and if I don’t eat, forgetfulness. My nausea went ALMOST away beginning of last week then hit me again 3 days ago and I have felt the need to dry heave nonstop, like it’s just below the surface if anything were to trigger it. It’s a strange feeling!
Baby’s Size: peach
Maternity Clothes: Haven’t bought any yet but think I will soon here!
Stretch Marks: None yet
Sleep: Pretty good. Getting up at least once to go to the bathroom, still sleep about ten hours at night.
Miss Anything?: Craving food and having an appetite.
Cravings: Still just really cold or frozen things like icees and the like.
Aversions: Most foods I guess, I just don’t want to eat and have to make myself.
Looking Forward to: Hearing the heartbeat at my next appointment!
What I’m Loving: My snoogle! Bobby loves it, too.
Workouts: Getting better, still not great. I ran TWICE last week, woo hoo! 2 miles one day, and 5 another. Slow with walk breaks, but still really proud. I also walked the dogs every day between .75 and 1.25 miles. I am trying to MOVE at least six days a week, I’m hoping to be able to add weight lifting back in again this week maybe.
My next appointment is April 9th, counting down the days!
I also wanted to announce I am now a For Two Fitness ambassador! Pregnant mamas, it’s a great maternity apparel company with super cute running and training clothes, be sure to check them out!
QOTD: Did you have a snoogle? Round ligament pain? When will I crave FOOD again?!?!
