 Sporting the official grey t-shirt.  It got noticed that I wore it for pics a lot – because I think it’s the right amount of tight but not too tight.

The baby is the size of an avocado. Still feel like we’re backwards from a peach but whatever.

Total Weight Gain: Three pounds.

Maternity Clothes: I’ve made it my personal goal to not purchase anything that is strictly maternity.

Sleep: Been a little restless. Bad dreams, uncomfortable, tossing and turning.

Best Moment of the Week: Spending the holiday weekend with family and friends in Dallas. We went to Marisa’s 30th birthday party and my mom’s side of the family came over for a pool party.  And my dad and I both placed second in our age groups at the 5K today!

2nd place!

Food cravings: I wanted Mexican tonight – we had Trader Joe’s cheese and green chile tamales. Hit the spot!

Food aversions: None really.

Symptoms: Serious donut belly. And I keep saying that my stomach is hard – because it is! It feels like there’s something in there!!

Movement: “Listen up – tiny bones in your fetus’s ears are in place this week, making it likely that the baby can hear your voice when you’re speaking. In fact, studies have found that babies who are sung to when they’re in the womb recognize the same tune when it’s sung to them after they’re born. The backbone is stronger now – strong enough to enable your baby to work on straightening his or her head and neck even more. Baby’s crown-to-rump measurement is between four and five inches in length, and weight is overing around three ounces. This little one’s a looker – with a face that has both eyebrows and eyelashes – but a skinny looker since there’s no baby fat yet. The skin is practically translucent now, so if you took a peek inside your uterus, you’d be able to see your baby’s blood vessels under that thin skin.” – What to Expect (

Gender: Still unknown. We find out at the next appointment.  Shane and I have a $4 (you read that right) bet going.  He thinks it will be a boy and I am still pretty convinced it’s a girl!

What I’m Looking Forward To: San Diego Marathon trip with the team this weekend!

What I Miss: My old worries. Now it’s always worrying/wondering if everything is ok with the baby. I’ve had some doctor drama lately and am considering switching, so that’s been really frustrating too. A lot to think about.

Next Appointment: June 21st

Estimated due date is November 11th, 2013!

Holy showing belly, Batman!  That’s legit. So weird that at the next appointment I’ll be halfway there…

Where is the belly?! hehe JK :) But from the looks of how small it is, I can’t believe you’re almost half way there as well and can’t believe you’ll find out what the baby is at your next appointment. How exciting! Feels like just yesterday we found out there a bun in the oven :) I do have to say…I think the milk jugs are getting bigger. Yes, I did just say that! hahahahaha Figured you’d get a kick out of that. You look great! Glowing!

Ok, I know you dont want to buy any maternity clothes but I will tell you, maternity pants were made in heaven. LOVE me some maternity pants. Heck, I still have some that I wear! I know, its sad, but they are so, so comfortable. :) Just try a pair here in a few weeks… ;)
