Week 13

in Baby Gins,Pregnancy

Originally written May 6th – now we’re all caught up!

The baby is the size of a peach!

Total Weight Gain: Still one pound.

Maternity Clothes: Nothing besides the bella band, which is freakin awesome. Not buttoning your pants is clutch for any woman – highly recommend.

Sleep: Still crashing hard for 8 hours.

Best Moment of the Week: “Coming out” of the pregnancy closet. It’s public info now!

Food cravings: Sugar, cheese, salads.

Food aversions: Mushrooms

Symptoms: Beer belly, acne, backache. Bringin sexy back.

Movement: “Your fetus is about three inches long and the size of a peach this week. But don’t compare your fetus with the fetus next door. Starting about now, babies begin growing at different paces, though they all follow the same developmental path. Growing at a universally breakneck speed now is your baby’s body as it tries to catch up to the head in terms of size. Though your baby’s head is about half the size of its body now, by the time your baby is ready to make his or her entrance into the world, the head will only be one-fourth as large as the body. Your baby’s intestines are also in for some big changes right now. Up til this point, they’ve been growing in a cavity inside the umbilical cord, but now they’re moving to their permanent address in your baby’s abdomen. And to serve your growing baby’s needs, the placenta is also growing. It weighs about an ounce now and will weigh one to two pounds at birth. Also developing this week: your baby’s vocal chords!”

Gender: Don’t know, and not sure when we’ll find out!

What I’m Looking Forward To: All the parents coming in town for Shane’s graduation and Mother’s Day.

What I Miss: Being fast (the sprint tri yesterday took a lot out of me even though I wasn’t pushing so hard – at least I placed 2nd in F25-29, hehe), an ice cold beer or two, staying up late.

Next Appointment: May 24th.

Estimated due date is November 11th, 2013!
