Bumpdate: 13 Weeks

keeping it real in my standard home attire... I took this is at night so you can see a slight bump popping out

size of the baby: Peach 

total weight gain: 5 lbs. 

gender: Still to be determined, but one of my best friend's sister is an ultrasound technician at the hospital right by my house & she may let us sneak a peak earlier than my doctor will let me. If not, we'll be waiting until February 20th to get the news! 

maternity clothes: This is my major victory of the week. Still no maternity clothes! I tried on a pair of my maternity jeans from last pregnancy & they're definitely too big still. My options may be limited, but I'm going to hold out as long as I can! By the end of the day, my belly is considerably bigger than it was in the morning & I'm quite sure it's only a matter of time until I really pop. 

movement: I know that it's common to feel the baby move earlier with your second baby, and my doctor told me I may start feeling him or her soon. I've definitely felt flutters, but nothing that has made me think - oh that was the baby! 

sleep: I'm sleeping as well as can be expected with a toddler in the house! I can usually sneak into bed by 9 & get in a solid 8 to 9 hours. I'm hoping that with the start of my second trimester will bring my energy back to me.

missing: My black side zipper skinnies - I came up with 3 different outfits they would've been perfect with this week. 

craving: Steak. I'm hoping I'll get one this weekend when Eric's parents visit. 

symptoms: Nothing out of the ordinary this week. 

Ella is: slowly catching on. She now knows that the baby is in my belly & will occasionally agree to say hi :)

looking forward to: A quiet weekend at home & a nice dinner out with Eric's parents. 

best moments: Still wearing my normal pants & knowing that I'm officially through my first trimester!
