13 Weeks

Here's my super bloated belly at 13 weeks!
{Please ignore the lack of makeup and hair in a has literally been raining for 3 days}

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 13 weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss: ZERO pounds, yippie!
How Big is the Baby: The size of a medium shrimp
Gender: We aren't sure yet...At my ultrasound last week, Dr. N said girl then a few seconds later said boy! In the end, he said that he couldn't get a good enough look {the baby wouldn't move} ,so he said that we'd know next time for sure.
Maternity Clothes: Not just yet...I think I may need to invest in some longer shirts very soon! I feel like my shirts are getting shorter by the day. My pre-preggers pants are still working just fine, but by the end of the day I feel like I need some comfy pants on for sure, ha!
Best Moment of the Week: Starting to feel less sickly with every passing day!
Stretch Marks: Negative
Movement: Nothing yet, but I wonder what it feels like...
Sleep: Sleeping fine, but sometimes it's tricky getting comfortable.
What I miss: Being able to actually get hungry before having to eat! I have learned that if I can just eat before I feel hungry I won't feel sick at all, but if I feel hungry that usually turns into feeling super sickly.
What I am looking forward to: Finding out what gender the baby is at the end of the month...only 2 more weeks, yay!
Symptoms: I get heartburn from pretty much anything...even water! For some reason I have had a headache for the last 3 days, ugh! I am still super tired by the end of the day, but I think that is getting a little better.
Food Cravings: Nothing specific besides Mexican food, but that is pretty much normal for me! I am definitely not into anything greasy right now for sure!
Belly Button: Inny
Signs of Labor: Negative

Girl or Boy??

I almost forgot to post our latest pic from our last ultrasound! This is our sweet little babe at 9 weeks 5 days...growing bigger every week.

I have my next appointment this Friday and I am super excited because we might be able to find out the sex of the baby! My doctor does an ultrasound every time that we go in for an appointment which I just love!

Last time we were there the heartbeat was 177 bpm to which the doctor said sounded "girly." This news of course sent me straight into thoughts of pink and big pretty bows of every color, ha! Hopefully we'll be able to find out this Friday and we will of course will be super excited with whatever the Lord blesses us with! What do you think it will be??? Any guesses friends???

P.S. I feel like I need a pregnancy pillow...Did anyone have a love story with theirs, or should I just make a pillow barrier all around myself?
