So 13 weeks is here already….well at this point it’s 13.5 weeks, but that’s how it goes.
These weeks are flying by and I’m happy to be officially out of the first trimester and into the second. The nausea is basically gone and my energy during the day is pretty good. I still feel not my best after 5 p.m. and am disenchanted with dinner, but the difference is I can actually eat and not cry over the fact I hate eating.
Sleep: Sleep has been okay besides the birds chirping right outside our window at 1 am. Did you even KNOW birds chirp at 1 am? I was so pissed. The most annoying part was it seems like there were a bunch of them and they were all making different noises. I put on a Jillian Michaels podcast and tried to fall back asleep. I’ve been sleeping until about 7 am every morning and I think I could probably sleep until 9 if I didn’t wake up hungry.
Food: Food has been pretty good. I’m still having eggs on a brown rice wrap with ketchup and fruit every morning. I’m obsessed with fruit and went to the food store at 7 pm Sunday night just to get strawberries and grapes. I’ve also added raspberries and blueberries to my current obsession. I’ve been trying to track my protein (ish) and make sure I’m getting enough.
Hated foods: The smell of peanut butter & chocolate is enough to make me want to claw my eyes out. Beans and smoothies (except I randomly wanted one last week).
Coffee: You all know how obsessed I am with coffee. The first probably 5-6 weeks (5 of which I didn’t know I was pregnant) I was having a cup or two of coffee a day. When I found out I was pregnant I went down to a small cup. Then I started with morning sickness and I did NOT want coffee AT ALL. Now I’ll occasionally have a small decaf iced coffee but that’s it. In my head I want coffee, but my stomach doesn’t really want it. I’m not super against having a small cup every so often, but I’m kind of nervous now how the caffeine will affect me.
Clothes fitting: My clothes still fit. I wore a dress Saturday that was tight mostly in the chest/upper ribcage area. I got through it but it was a little tight. I also had to buy new bras. My pants are getting a bit snug, but my JCREW cafe capris are carrying me through and I think will fit for awhile.
Emotional meltdowns: Not that many. I haven’t had a major one in weeks. I think I’m pretty emotionally stable, but I am crankier than usual. Danny’s probably violently shaking this head. It’s usually only after 9 or after I’ve eaten dinner or in the middle of the night. hah.
Exercise: Going well. In the past week I ran 3 times (3.5 – 4.5 miles at a time), lifted some weights, went on a few walks, took a spin class, held a few planks. Still keeping up with about 6 days of exercise.
Baby things bought: None. Should we have bought anything yet? Currently baby has been gifted quite a few things from excited family and friends. We haven’t personally bought anything yet. When do you do the registering thing?
Thoughts from the week: I still can’t believe there’s a real life growing in there. I have started to catch myself rubbing my belly, but it’s still unbelievable to think about what’s in there. Danny has started to ask how the baby is, which I kind of melt at. He also uses this to his advantage when I may be annoyed at him, he just asks about baby and I can’t help but not be mad. (When I’m usually mad about trivial things like having to wash a pot.) I also feel like at this point I’m just starting to look like the end of the freshman year in college. At least I don’t have the swollen face…..yet.
I think that’s about it. If there’s anything you’d like to know feel free to email or ask in the comments!
