Week 13 Bumpdate

How far along: 13 weeks! I can't believe today marks our second trimester! Time is flying!

Baby Size: The baby is a size of a peach (3 inches long).

Weight gain: Up another pound, coming in at 112.5. Pretty sure all my weight gain is from carbs so far.

Maternity clothes: I picked up a shirt and a pair of leggings from Gap this week. Old Navy was also running a huge sale online so I stocked up on tunics, jeans and dresses. I got 12 items for $75!
 
Stretch marks: Between both moms, I have enough stretch mark cream to last me through my pregnancy. Never in a million years did I expect the moms to pack our Halloween package with candy, gift cards and stretch mark prevention cream. Gotta love the moms! 

Sleep: For some reason I have been waking up at 2 or 3 a.m. to tinkle and have the hardest time going back to sleep. I toss and turn for at least 2 hours afterwards. Matt thinks it's because I'm going to bed at 8 pm. Eek!

Best moment this week:
This week we received so many cards and packages in the mail that I can't stop smiling. From frosted animal crackers to car mirrors for the baby, our mailman has been busy!

Looking forward to: Halloween and our anniversary trip! We have some friends staying with us Halloween night and can't wait to hang out on the porch catching up and passing out candy to all the cute trick-or-treaters! Then on Friday morning Matt, Charlie and I are hitting the road for a nice cabin weekend in the mountains! We are so excited to celebrate two years with our growing family!

What I miss: Nothing really.

Movement: Not yet...

Food cravings: Still eating tons of carbs {bagels, pastas and french fries}. Also, I owe Mel, McKinsey, Laura, Meghan and Cristina a huge shout out {and thank you from baby M} for letting us change our weekly Tuesday night dinner date from Panera to IHOP so I could stuff my face with pancakes. You girls are the BEST!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Still disgusted by chicken. Gross.

Gender: I thought it was a boy last week, but after reading all of your comments I am back to thinking it's a girl...

Labor Signs: Will start answering this in about 28 weeks...

Symptoms: After I eat a large meal I stay full for a very long time these days.
 
Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: Happy, happy, happy! 

Nursery: I started seriously thinking about the nursery this week. Matt's going to kill me when he finds out what sort of projects I have in mind.
 
Workouts: Using the elliptical more than ever, and of course I am still attending Cardio Funk dance class on Fridays.

Prayer for Baby: 
 Dear Lord, this week our baby is developing vocal cords. I pray our child will grow up and speak only positive and encouraging words, and to avoid gossip and criticism. Help me, too, so that I can also be a good role model for godly speech. Thank you for blessing us with this special baby. We are so grateful to be entering our second trimester. In Jesus' name, Amen.

  12. LOVE your shirt!!!! I am 28 weeks pregnant (and so my belly is much more "pumpkin shaped" than yours!) and think I can something similar for Halloween! Thanks for the inspiration :) Also, your weekly prayers are such a blessing to me and a sweet reminder to surrender my baby to the Lord each and every day. Do you write them yourself or is there a devotional that you are getting inspiration from?

  13. Aww you are so adorable in that pumpkin shirt! Love the sweet prayer at the end!

  14. Your belly pic is just adorable! Love the pumpkin shirt. And I got up a lot in the beginning, too. Then it kind of goes away until the middle of the third trimester. My husband and I finally switched back to our original sides of the bed last night since I got him to switch since his side was next to the bathroom haha. But, last night ironically, I just switched our pillows and we went back to that, haha.

  19. I went through the same thing with sleep and did even after I put the baby back down after feeding her. So annoying! Now, how cute is that shirt?! I love holiday attire so this would have been so cute with my first pregnancy since I was due in May.

  28. I like that you typed the following: pray our child will grow up and speak only positive and encouraging words, and to avoid gossip and criticism. WONDERFUL PRAYER - visit my link and look on the right. Their are two beautiful children - one holding her finger against her mouth....shhhh - the other child whispering in her ear. There is a link that goes to this picture. I always love to learn something new. I am sure you will appreciate it also. http://geula613.blogspot.com/

  32. I am about a month ahead of you, due in mid-April, and had the same thing with not being able to fall back to sleep after an early morning bathroom break. That went away around week 15, so hope is on the horizon. I also got one of the full body maternity pillows (I got the boppy one, but there are a few other brands) and that also really helped me sleep better.

  33. That was a beautiful prayer for your baby! The verse is also one that is helpful to everyday life for all of us!
