13 Weeks and the Winner


Let me just start off by saying that I’ve felt SO much better this week. I have even put on make-up each day this week. It’s been nice to feel back to normal. We’ve had family visiting this week, and it was good to get out and be able to do things without wanting to puke or being incredibly tired. We’ve been taking advantage of our (freezing cold) swimming pool. Owen loves the water. I love when we get out and get warm.

Pregnancy Highlights!

How Far Along: 13 weeks

Size of Baby: About 3 inches and weighs 1 ounce. Incredible.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: My scale STILL says nothing. I know it’s lying to me. Pants on fire, Mr. Scale. Pants. On. Fire.

Maternity Clothes: Pants, shorts, skirts. Today, I’m wearing an awesome flowy dress dress from Forever 21. It’s not maternity. Although, it is very flowy. Very Afternoon Delight. I actually do call it my Afternoon Delight Dress. But more in a Glee sort of way.

Gender: I’m thinking it’s a girl. The heartbeat just makes me think it’s NOT a boy. :)

Movement: I could have sworn I felt this little one more a few nights ago when I was laying in bed. I’d almost put money on it.

Sleep: Getting better. Sleeping on my side, mostly. I get hot a lot in the middle of the night. Possibly because Owen loves to cuddle. He’s a human heater.

What I Miss: Sushi.

Cravings: Anything ice cold. Orange juice, chocolate almond milk, cream soda…they all MUST have tons of ice in it. Also, beef. I don’t even like beef that much, but I’m craving it.

Symptoms: Just peeing. A lot.

Best Moment This Week: Thinking I possibly felt this little one move. Now that it’s my second time around, I know what it feels like. And I swear, I felt this baby move. 🙂

Here’s my pic from this week. Taken in my Afternoon Delight Dress. Holla!

And now…the winner of the Cloth Wipes giveaway. Since I only had 2 people enter, I did it the old fashioned way and just had Owen pick a number out of a container. Woo! So, Emily, you are the winner! I’ll contact you and get your address so I can mail the wipes to you!! Thanks for entering!


About Erin

I'm a mom to the sweetest little boys ever, Owen & Colin. Owen was born in April of 2007 after 22 hours of active labor in a hospital. Love him more than life. Knowing I didn't feel another hospital birth was right for me, Colin was born at home surrounded by our 2 midwives and our little family. I've been married to my hubs for 7 years. We met in 1997 in an AOL Chatroom...the rest is history. I'm crazy. I'm funny. I am socially awkward. This is my life.
