13 week update

How far along: 13 weeks (14 weeks tomorrow!!)

Total weight gain: lost a couple of pounds

Best moments this month: hearing the baby's heartbeat at my appointment on friday & Lucy turning 1!

Food cravings: not many. am growing out of the nausea thankfully, but still not very hungry most of the time. I did enjoy soft pretzels most of the first trimester :)

Gender: We don't know and we aren't finding out!

Belly button in or out: still in, but definitely not the same as pre-Lucy :(

Labor signs:no thankfully!

What I miss: Sleeping through the night with no bathroom breaks, being able to take meds when I'm sick with a headache or cold & feeling more energetic

What I am looking forward to: This is unrelated to baby, but I'm SO looking forward to the summer and going on lots of walks with Lucy and to the pool and beach and getting lots of one on one time with her before the little one comes. I am also getting so excited to have these two little ones close together. I hope that they will be sweet little pals and maybe sleep in bunk beds one day :)

Weekly wisdom: I have been thankful to hear from other mom's lately about having babies close together and doing just fine. It's always helpful to hear when I'm feeling overwhelmed!

Milestones: Getting through the first trimester is BIG for me. I can't complain because I really feel pretty good compared to others, but it's a relief to be growing out of the extreme fatigue stage and hopefully into more stable eating patterns as well :)
