13 Weeks Pregnant

I’m in the second trimester! Woohoo! It’s unbelievably exciting and overwhelming at the same time. I think it’s going much faster the second time around. Maybe it’s because my whole day is filled with Landon and I don’t have a lot of time to sit and ponder what is going to happen. That’s a very good thing because I don’t have as much time to worry. I’m trying to let things go and take care of myself and my babies. Actually having the time to do that feels really good. But it is a luxury and right now I am thanking God for my husband who is working extra hard so that I don’t have to work at a job that was making me sick and unhappy.

Now that we are just 5 weeks away from possibly being able to find out green bean’s gender I am starting to have second thoughts. I keep thinking that this is our surprise baby so wouldn’t it be so cool for the surprise to continue right up until delivery day? I think so. It would be really sweet to have Naaman be the one to say “It’s a boy!” or “It’s a girl!” on our baby’s actual birthday. But honestly I’m just not sure I can hold out that long. I’m so impatient! And Naaman wants to find out so it looks like we probably will. Still think it would be really amazing to wait until green bean’s birthday! We’ll see what happens.

Here’s my bump at 13 weeks!

How far along?

13 weeks, 2 days
Total weight gain: Will have a number for you next week . . .
Maternity clothes? I’m wearing some maternity jeans now. So comfy. Definitely using the Bella Band to make my regular pants last longer. That invention is awesome.
Sleep: We desperately need a new mattress. Ours sucks. It’s old and the sweet spots aren’t so sweet anymore. I can’t handle this mattress throughout my entire pregnancy! We’re both losing sleep.
Best moment this week: Finally finding the H1N1 vaccine. I’ve been searching for the safe-for-pregnancy one for a month and I finally got it. I’m so relieved! Some people might think it’s weird to be so worried but when you’ve had the flu during your first pregnancy and had to have your husband carry you into the emergency room because you no longer have the strength to walk? Yeah, um, I’ll take a simple little shot over that drama any day.
Food cravings: My wonderful doughnut craving is back. And my wonderful husband obliges this craving without me even having to ask ; )
Gender: tbd
Labor Signs: I’ve still got awhile
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: Not peeing every hour. Oh yes, the constant urination is already in full force.
What I am looking forward to: My appointment next week!
Weekly Wisdom: Whenever one door closes, another one opens . . . (more on this later)
Milestones: I am in the second trimester now! At least my pregnancy iphone app is telling me I have reached that point. We’re moving right along!
Differences between #1 & #2: I didn’t start showing with Landon at all until I was about 16-17 weeks pregnant and even then it was just a tiny bump. Well, I’m definitely showing with green bean. Apparently my uterus is ready to show off.
