13 Weeks




Thoughts: I can't believe we are officially in the second trimester! Although I had a very easy first trimester, I feel like I was kind of holding my breath, waiting to reach 12 weeks. I love waking up every morning and running to the bathroom to see if my belly is any bigger than it was the night before. I keep hoping to wake up with a giant bump... one of these days!

Baby: Baby Phelps is the size of a peach, about 3 inches long. Baby has fingerprints and reflexes. We like to gently poke my tummy because we read that the baby's reflexes will cause it to wiggle out of the way. Obviously we can't feel any movement yet, but it's fun to think about the little one wiggling around in there!

Weight: +/- 0. I weighed myself on my home scale, and I weighed exactly what I did 9 weeks ago when we found out we are pregnant. I haven't been sick so I haven't lost anything, and I've been trying to work out and keep the diet in check so I don't gain too much. I have a feeling that 0 will go up soon, but I am proud of myself for not gaining any unnecessary weight right off the bat.

Symptoms: Sleepy, sleep, sleepy. I have plenty of energy in the mornings, but all I want to do is nap in the afternoons and lay on the couches in the evenings. Round ligament pain here and there, but nothing too painful at all. 

Sleep: Yes, please. I sleep 8-9 hours in the evenings and take hour long naps on the weekends. If I didn't have a job, I think I would nap every single day! I am sleeping pretty well, but it has been an adjustment training myself not to sleep on my stomach.

Cravings/Aversions/Eating: I always want macaroni and cheese, but I don't think this counts as a craving because I wanted this every day before I got pregnant too. Right now I am all about watching TV on the couch with a bag full of red grapes. I also can't eat enough PB&J's. I want one every single day, and it's almost always my lunch.

Workouts: I run 2 miles 2-3 times a week and walk the dogs every day. On the days I don't run, I try to power walk at least a couple miles just to get moving. I keep telling myself to start lifting weights... maybe tomorrow. 

Clothes: Still in non maternity clothes. Tops fit just fine, and I am doing the rubber band trick with most shorts/pants these days. 

Random: Jenny has been adorably clingy lately and loves to cuddle as close on the couch as she can. Yesterday she kept laying next to me and putting her paws on my stomach. I don't think she knows I'm pregnant (she may start thinking something is up when I get bigger and the baby starts kicking), but, come on, how adorable?

I wish I could insert a heart eye emoji on the computer! I love this so much and kudos to you for getting your runs in. You look absolutely adorable and the bump will come soon enough! You're going to have the cutest little bump in the world! :) :) :)

Lucky girl that you still haven't gained weight! I gained weight so quickly because I was always starving but too exhausted to work any of the extra food I was eating off. You look great!!! :-)

Nope, it sounds like she knows. My friend's cats knew she was pregnant before she did. With my first pregnancy, our oldest dog wanted to cuddle (she is not a cuddler). Animals know :)

Kat said...

Omgosh, just read that you're pregnant. Congratulations! How exciting! Jenny is too cute. So excited to follow you and Parker on your newest journey :)

I can't wait to see how the dogs adapt to it all. I'm so beyond happy for you and Parker.

I have actually heard that many pets are able to detect differences in your mood, posture, behavior, and body chemistry; in turn that clues them in to the enormous changes you're going through :D

I think Jenny knows. I think animals and sense things. You look reallly cute. Def can tell your preggers! I enjoyed reading your update!

I truly believe that dogs know what's up. I also craved peanut butter! I would recommend getting at least one pair of maternity pants now. I waited till the third trimester, and regretted waiting because they were so much more comfortable! I think having at least one pair is definitely worth the money in the long run!
