13 Weeks

So 13 weeks today, and I am now officially in the second trimester :)

This last week was a bit rough. I was fighting a cold at the beginning of the week. I had a sore throat and felt achy and was extra tired. I decided I needed to cut back on the sugar because the few days before I got sick I was eating about 6-7 popsicles a day. I don't know why but I really liked them.

Cravings have turned into something interesting now. I'm doing so much better with the morning sickness and most food is tasting good again. So now I feel like I'm craving everything!!! Every time I hear someone talking about a food I haven't had in a while I NEED it. It's funny because I don't know if these are pregnancy cravings or me just missing liking the way food tastes, but I'll take it either way.

I've had a rough week emotionally too. I don't know why maybe it's because we are getting closer to when we lost Gabriel but I've just been very worried this week. I am analysing every single twinge and feeling and wondering if they are normal. The one that has been bothered me the most is this weird pressure I keep feeling. I just feels like something is sitting right on top of my cervix (imagine that) I'm sure it's normal but then I keep worrying that maybe my cervix is acting up and that's why I'm feeling it. I have a Dr apt tomorrow so if everything checks out normally and looks good I'll know it's a normal feeling and I can stop worrying.

Also I've loved Teddy Graham since the moment I saw the positive pregnancy test, but it is interesting how much that love has already grown over the past weeks. I feel more attached everyday and it's a beautiful and scary thing. I am hopeful, I want this little one so badly to make it home with us.

Ok enough of that for now. MUST BE POSITIVE!!! I try really hard I promise!

So what else is new this week? Well tomorrow at the Dr appointment we will be discussing whether or not I will be getting 17P shots. It is basically a shot of progesterone I'll get weekly to help prevent premature rupture of my membranes and preterm labor. I'm a little nervous about it but I'll do anything it takes to help keep this little one keep cooking until the time is right to make the big entrance :)

I also re-measured my tummy this week to see total growth since the beginning and I've grown a total of 16cm which is equal to about 6 1/4 inches. You might find this strange (my mom does) but I've also kept track of the circumference of my breasts because last time I was pregnant Jeremy and I would debate about whether they had grown and how much so this time I can tell you exactly haha well the right one has grown 5.5cm or just over 2 inches and the left 5 cm or exactly 2 inches... :)

so now for the pictures... First we have our weekly belly pic. I compared to last week and not much difference at all but here it is :)

Next we have my model shot, notice Zoe in the corner... her face says it all... What in the world are you doing mom, you look ridiculous!

It's amazing how much I can tell my tummy is changing, even the weeks it doesn't get bigger the shape is changing.

I want to see the side by side. It is hard to tell if you look bigger without it. Happy and positive thoughts and lots of relaxing activities for the next few weeks is in order! Love all three of you so much! Mom
