Tummy Tuesday| Bump Update

Excuse the tired expression and makeup-less face. Better pictures to come! =)

Here’s my current pregnancy update:

  • How far along: 13 weeks
  • How big is baby: About the size of a peach, about 2.9 inches long and weighs about .81 ounces.
  • Weight gain: I’ll find out Thursday at my MD appt.
  • Sleeping: Still not sleeping that great. One night I woke up at 4am and stayed up watching Cosby Show re-runs until 6am. I was a zombie the next day!
  • Food cravings: Salty and more salty! LOVING French fries from Chik-fil-a and Zaxbys! Yum!
  • Food aversions: Raw meats can’t stand how it looks or the smell. Blech!
  • Missing: Sushi, seasonal beer, margaritas, deli sandwiches.
  • Symptoms: Nausea is getting better; my stomach is still itching like crazy! I’ve been getting some headaches lately, those aren’t fun.
  • Doctor’s appointment: Thursday!
  • Movement: A few flutters here and there!
  • Gender / Names: We are going to find out in November! We have a girl name picked out, no boy names yet…
  • Best moment of the week: Feeling the flutters for the first time,
  • What I’m looking forward to: Hearing baby’s heartbeat at next apt, it gives me a sense of comfort that everything is ok and the Food Truck Rodeo downtown on Sunday! 40 food trucks!! A preggo lady’s dream! =)
  • What I did / Got for baby: Nothing this week, unless French fries count!


  1. french fries SO count...Ama

  2. Love that picture of you :) I hope you start sleeping better, and i had no clue there was a food truck rodeo this weekend!!


  3. Awww! Love bump updates!

  4. What have you tried for the itching? BandAid Anti-itch gel worked well for me along with squeezing lemon juice from a fresh lemon on your belly and allowing it to air dry. Feel better!
