Week 13

  • Sleep: I'm not nearly as tired as I used to be, but man is it hard for me to get out of bed.
  • Exercise: Tons of walking and going back to pilates tomorrow...
  • Cravings/Aversions: I still love a lemon from time-to-time, but nothing really crazy recently.  Definitely not loving food that's bad for me and realized the smell of pumpkin is a real turnoff right now.
  • Weight: Lost a little this week, so only up about 2.5 lbs
  • Pregnancy Symptom I'm not loving: Headaches...apparently they come with the second tri territory
  • What I am looking forward to: Just cruisin' along right now. Kind of just enjoying it...
  • Think it's funny that: I'm showing. Like full-on showing.
  • Favorite Moment this week: Telling everyone that would listen! It's funny because it's old news to me, but exciting and fun for everyone else.  This baby is going to have a lot of "aunts" and "uncles."
  • And last but not least: Here is this week's bump picture!

Man, oh does one pose for a photo like this?

Week 12

  • Sleep: Going in and out of being sleepy and being totally fine.  I'm hoping that means the exhaustion is going away.
  • Exercise: Walking occasionally and ran about 2 miles through the airport today to try to get to my gate in time.  I plan on going back to pilates this week.
  • Cravings: lemons. lemons. LEMONS!
  • Weight: I'm up about 3-4 lbs.
  • Pregnancy Symptom I'm not loving: Oh I got a new one - headaches and a stuffy nose.
  • What I am looking forward to: Finally telling everyone about the bean! I've slowly started telling a select few, but it's been fun so far.
  • Think it's funny that: I'm already wearing maternity clothes. Those bands that go around my pants don't do me any good, so I just went and skipped ahead to maternity clothes.  Most maternity pants are too big for me and end up falling down repeatedly.
  • Favorite Moment this week: Seeing the bean and having him actually LOOK like a baby! We're wrapping up the first trimester and it's cool to see that there's actually a little baby in there and not just a blob that has a heartbeat.

Week 10-11

  • Sleep: Still tired.  Still not getting enough.
  • Exercise: Haven't been able to get much this week.  Read below.
  • Cravings: Lemons, salad, and milk
  • Weight: I'm up about 2 lbs still.
  • Pregnancy Symptom I'm not loving: aversion to smells.
  • What I am looking forward to: Ending the first trimester
  • On a another note: Things have been a little crazy this week.  Bobbie (DB's mom), had been diagnosed with cervical and ovarian cancer around April/May of this year, and things have progressed pretty quickly.  Over the last week, she experienced a deep decline and sadly, passed away this past Sunday.  We spent as much time with her as we could, but I'm very sad that our baby will not get to spend any time with his Grammy.  She was very excited about the arrival of the Barney baby, and I know she would have been an amazing presence for our child.  Even though she won't be here physically, I know she's still here in spirit.  The last email she sent me was about this blog...about how she loved it, but wished there were more photos of my belly and of Dana.  So, here is her wish fulfilled...

Me at around 11 1/2 weeks.  I already can't fit in my pants and am wearing maternity shorts in this picture.
