The baby is the size of a navel orange.

Total Weight Gain: One or two pounds? Maybe.

Maternity Clothes: Still just rubberbanding the pants.

Sleep: I’ve had a wave of exhaustion this week. Need more.

Best Moment of the Week: Running Peak Week with the San Diego team and volunteering at Ironman Texas! It was really special being on the other side of the event.

Food cravings: I had my first real craving on Saturday. I REALLY REALLY wanted McAlister’s veggie club wrap, potato salad, and sweet tea. There is no McAlister’s in Houston but I googled it and there was one in The Woodlands! Luckily Jess and Aimee were accommodating and we got to go there before we volunteered! Really hit the spot – now I want that sweet tea again.

Food aversions: None really.

Symptoms: Still look like I’ve had too many beers. Backache, exhaustion. Fun!

Movement: “Curious why your body is finally looking like it’s pregnant? That’s because your baby is growing bigger each week – he or she is as long as four and a half inches right now. So what keeps baby busy all day? Mostly, your fetus is in rehearsals…babies practice breathing, sucking, and swallowing so that when they leave your comfy womb and move into your comfy house, they’ll have the skills necessary to survive. Fetal body movements continue to get practice this week, too. But because your baby weighs so little (a bit over two ounces), you won’t feel the calisthenics going on inside your abdominal gym. But don’t let that fool you; your fetus is holding daily aerobics classes – kicking, curling toes, and moving those little arms and legs. And with each passing week, your fetus is looking more and more like the baby you’re picturing in your dreams. By now, the ears are positioned properly on the sides of the head and the eyes are moving from the side of the head to the front of the face – where they’ll soon meet your loving gaze.” – What to Expect (

Gender: Dying to know! I think we have another month.

What I’m Looking Forward To: Appointment this Friday, and the three-day weekend!

What I Miss: Running at my usual pace. Actually, everything at my usual pace.

Next Appointment: May 24th.

Estimated due date is November 11th, 2013!

I’m too lazy to look this up and confirm, but I feel like you are wearing the same t-shirt in a lot of these posts. Sounds like a perfect excuse for shopping!


Christa May 21, 2013 at 6:48 am

Yeah, I think this is the 3rd time I have worn the grey t-shirt. Ooops!!!

For future reference, there’s totally a McAlister’s at UH and its open everyday except Sunday :) And it’s on the first floor of our Welcome Center/Parking garage and across from the rec center so pretty easy to get to and plenty of parking (and a lot closer than the woodlands :)

Holy crap, you should NOT have told me that. Haaaaaallelujah! Thanks for the pro tip! :)
