13 Weeks

Pregnancy This Week
How Far Along: Well, that's a good question...one I'd like an answer to. But thanks to insurance red tape they will only cover one ultrasound before the big 20 week scan. So no matter how poor a measurement they got, we can only go off of that. So, to answer the question...the scan says 13 weeks, the doctor and myself think closer to 14-15 weeks...we'll nail down a better guess at the 20 week ultrasound.
Size of Baby: 3 inches long, about the size of a peach.
Weight Gain: None so far...been able to run every day...even helped relieve nausea!
Gender: Don't know yet...I think maybe boy just because this pregnancy has been identical to the boys'. But that could just be the way I am when pregnant. So excited to find out...but we still have awhile to go. Harrison says it's a parrot, though today he and Jeff agreed we are having a fish.
Movement: I'm pretty sure when I'm sleeping on my tummy I can feel those sweet little butterfly kisses inside.
Maternity Clothes: Not yet...I don't even have a little bump yet...kind wondering when I get to have some evidence to prove that there is indeed a baby in there.
Cravings: First, I have to say, thank goodness the nausea and food aversion (for the most part) are behind me! Not cool with two little bottomless pits who ask for food all day long! For now I crave fresh fruit, dry cereal, beef, and turkey sandwiches.
Symptoms: Feeling pretty good now...in fact, I have to keep reminding myself I am pregnant!
Best Moment of the Week: I didn't document this yet, so I will here, but 2 weeks ago we got to hear baby's heartbeat for the first time. It was in the 150's, same as both boys at this point in pregnancy. This week I have thoroughly enjoyed Harrison's take on how my belly will grow as baby does. He seems to think I will be a ginormous blob...love how encouraging his wording is! :)
