13 Weeks

I'm thrilled to say that I'm 13 weeks-into my 2nd trimester (I just typed "3rd" and had to erase it...wishful thinking).

  • Baby's size:  3 inches from crown to rump, about the size of a medium shrimp, and weighing 1 ounce ( I think I messed up last week on the weight)

  • My weight gain this month:  4 pounds

  • Clothes:  maternity pants and shirts and stretchy shirts; Brian's t-shirts at night (my favorite)

  • Cravings:  salty food, bread, and fruit.  I also had a coke yesterday-it was the BEST coke I've ever had.  I haven't had any caffeine in 3 months.  It was a fountain coke with lots of ice and it was delicious.

  • Aversions:  greasy food.  I skipped fries this week for potato salad!  

  • How I'm feeling:  I'm feeling a little bit better and I'm hopeful that the sickness may be going away.  I'm also trying to pick myself up out of this sludge.  I caught a glimpse of myself out the other day and couldn't believe my eyes.  I went out of the house so proud of my cute little Harper.  Then, I walked by a mirror at Nordstrom and I about fell out.  I looked like the biggest MESS ever.  I'm not even kidding.  They probably thought I was a shoplifter.  I went into a dressing room just to put on some lipstick and brush out my hair.  I just haven't felt like doing anything with myself.  Sooooo, I am turning a new leaf and seriously making an effort every day.  

  • My favorite thing this week:  finding out a very dear friend is expecting and due in May.  She's going to be the best mother and I'm saying extra prayers of praise for her.
