We spent this last weekend at the beach and I was fantastic, a much needed getaway for just the two of us. We also made our Facebook announcement. I know a lot of people think they're silly, but we have a lot of family that we don't have numbers for and end up communicating through FB so we wanted to do it. We took some pictures at the beach and used one of them to announce. We'll use a different one we took for our Christmas cards (which I need to order ASAP).
Last night I was able to cook dinner for the first time in months, normally I can barely stand to be in the kitchen much less cook a meal. Even more impressive was that after dinner I had energy to clean up a little bit of the house which I also haven't done in months. I need to start getting it ready for Christmas and normally I would have been all over it fit after Thanksgiving, but this year it's more of a process b/c I'm so drained all the time. I'm working on it though!
How far along: 13 weeks....3 more days until 2nd tri!
How big is baby: According to the Bump, (who likes to compare baby to fruits and veggies) he/she is the size of a peach....my what to expect app says a lemon
Total weight gain: Haven't checked lately. When I went in for my appt last week I had dropped a couple lbs since I was in before
Sleep: Still not great. Tuesday night I caved and took a Benadryl since my dr okay'd it and I slept amazing! I don't want to have to take one every night, but falling asleep at 10 and waking up at 3 then not ever getting back into deep sleep is taking its toll.
Maternity Clothes: nope, jeans are definitely tighter, but since I wear scrubs at work I don't need to buy any clothes yet.
Food cravings : not really...there will be times when something will sound amazing out of the blue, but nothing consistent
Food Aversions: Most food most of the time
Challenges: trying to get the house cleaned up when I can barley get off the couch
Movement: Not for awhile
Boy or Girl?: Won't know until January...I'm 99% sure we're going to find out, at least this time, the second time around maybe not
What I’m looking forward to: feeling human
What I miss: good sleep & not feeling nauseous. I honestly can't remember what it's like to not feel like crap for at least part of the day
Next appt: Jan 7th
