First Trimester Update

How far along: 13 weeks

Baby Size: A peach

Weight gain: 5 pounds at my last appointment

Maternity clothes:  So far I'm loving the maternity pants.  Might be wearing those even after I deliver! As for the tops, I'm just sticking with a size larger in tops and mostly flowy ones that help to disguise my growing bump.
Sleep: Sleeping pretty well, but waking up at least once or twice a night to go to the bathroom.

Gender: A sweet little girl!

Movement: Still too early to feel anything just yet.

Best moment this trimester: Getting to see (and later hear) my babe's heart beating during the ultrasound; telling my husband and my family!

Looking forward to: Our 18 week scan!

Food cravings: None yet. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Yes.  I was fine until mid-way through Week 5, which is when the nausea hit. Until then I'd been eating a keto diet, but all of the sudden all I could manage to eat were carbs. Just the thought of meat and butter made my skin crawl.  There was one night for dinner  right around the beginning of the food aversions where I ordered lobster bisque. Bad idea.  Let's just say this baby is not a seafood fan.

Labor Signs: Way too early just yet! 

What I miss: Sushi. Eating deli meats without having to zap them in the microwave first. Goat cheese. Honestly, I'm not missing the alcohol at all.

Symptoms: Pulling/heaviness in abdomen, mild heartburn, short intense pains around my pelvis (apparently it's a common symptom of ligaments stretching out), thirsty all the time, feeling pretty fatigued during the day, more frequent pee breaks! Oh, and major lower back pain. 

Nursery: We'll need to start talking about how we want to convert the guest room..

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: Excited!

Workouts: Taking a bit of a break.  I'll take a walk around the neighborhood or catch a yoga class on Saturday mornings if I'm feeling up to it, but since I've been feeling so poorly for the past few weeks I've decided to show myself some grace and put the exercise on the backburner.
