I most definitely lost a lot of energy at the beginning, that’s why I’ve been slacking at keeping this blog of ours up-to-date. Lately, I’ve been feeling a lot better and I am looking forward to writing about my pregnancy and sharing it with all of you!
I’m going to try to keep a weekly Baby Bump Update, or “Bumpdate” as I like to call it. Below is my Bumpdate for Week 13. I’ll try to keep with this template… and I’m completely open to other suggestions that anyone might have! 🙂
Baby is the Size of a: Peach
Predictions: I think the baby is a boy… Justyn is hoping it’s a girl.
Food Cravings: Cottage Cheese sprinkled with Sunflower Seeds, Fruit (apples, strawberries, cantaloupe), Cereal with lots of Milk, Tater-tots with Ketchup, and Ice Cream
Food Aversions: Red Meat, Eggs, Lemons/Limes
Maternity Clothes: I ordered a few new things on-line from Destination Maternity(see the picture below).
Best Moment of the Week: Hearing our little baby’s heartbeat for the very first time! Justyn recorded it with his phone, so we’ve listened to it like 100 times since then! 🙂
Worst Moment of the Week: Watching Justyn and his brother eat some delicious looking sushi while I waited (very impatiently) for my cooked-food order to arrive! Raw fish has never looked so appetizing before… you always want what you can’t have!
Newest Baby Purchase: Nothing yet…
Best Quote from the Daddy-to-be: “It all became real for me once that boiler of yours started poking out.” Yes, I’m definitely at that stage where it looks like I have a serious beer-gut, but I keep telling Justyn that he probably should stop referring to our baby as my “boiler”.
I’m hoping these items will be comfortable for work during the week. When I was first hired at the state, they promoted a very casual “jeans everyday” type of at-work attire. Lately however, there has been a push for us to look more professional in the office. I’m trying my best, but dress clothes and baby bumps really don’t mix!
