13 weeks | Baby #3

Wednesday, October 10, 2012


How far along: 13 weeks. [13 with Isaac] Baby is forming teeth and vocal cords. Baby is approaching normal proportions, with a head now only one third the size of the body. Intestines are in the process of moving fro the umbilical cord to baby's tummy. 

How big is baby: A peach at 2.9".

Weight gain/loss: Feeling pretty good so far to be under the 3-5 lbs for first tri. Just over one pound total. 

Stretch marks: Nope.

Sleep: Due to an awful cold that robbed me of my voice, I've been sleeping pretty terribly the last few days. 

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: I made an unmarked and undisclosed box of brownies, that I'm not entirely sure where it came from, last night and included a scoop of peanut butter. Tony ran to the store for me and came back with Edy's 1/2 the fat slow churned Carmel delight. With still warm, slightly gooey brownies, I was in heaven! Probably shouldn't have given it to Isaac 10 minutes before his bed time though . . . 
Split second amazing decision. I found an unmarked brownie mix and added peanut butter to it. @fontainenine supplied the ice cream, Edy's 1/2 the fat, slow churned Carmel Delight.

Movement: The same, I've felt some flutters that have made me pause, but definitely nothing that is obviously movement.

The belly: Is making it's way further out.

What I'm worrying about: Currently nothing pregnancy related, just that I have my mini sessions on Saturday, which is the same day as Tony's grandpa's funeral. Unfortunately we don't have anyone to watch the boys . . . but it also looks like it's going to rain all day, so I'm still just waiting to determine if I'm going to be rescheduling or not. 

What I'm loving: Being pregnant. Feeling blessed. 

Symptoms: I seem to have been able to put the nausea behind me! I'm so flipping exhausted though . . . so close to 2nd tri! Aren't I supposed to be getting a second wind here?

What I'm looking forward to: The official end of first tri, at 13w3d. I'm really looking forward to finding out this little one's sex! Everyone keeps asking what sort of reveal we'll do this time and I haven't the faintest idea . . . but, of course, it can't be anything similar to something already done! :)

Best moment of the week: I'm still really thankful for the borrowed doppler, as it's so reassuring to find the little one's heart, just beating away right before bed time.

I'm making cupcakes for a friend and she's bringing them to dinner with her family.

You could do something similar and eat them together as a family. That way, you're all in on it and I'm sure the boys would love a cupcake treat on a random weeknight!

Perhaps having Isaac take the first bite telling you what the Baby is? And of course, you'd have to get it all on video or in photos!

and if we were closer in location to eachother, I'd totally make the cupcakes for you!! (maybe we work close together?!)

Leah, I thought this was a cute idea....http://kendraandryanwebster.blogspot.com/2012/04/its.html

Kendra did this from 'Calling All Angels'... I think Isaac AND Ezra would get a HUGE kick out of it.

I see a little tiny bump forming :)

Ooooh, the bump is coming!!

If you want to drive to KC, I'll gladly watch your boys...

I love these updates more than you can believe. Not that I want to be pregnant again, right now... I still love reading about someone's pregnancy.

Those brownies look awesome!

I don't know how you'll do the reveal, but however it happens I'm sure it will be awesome!

It's starting to bump out, yesss! Love that dessert. Love that you are feeling flutters. Love that you are thinking about gender reveals already.

Just found your blog---looks like we both have two little boys and another one on the way! I just hit 16 weeks---it's flying by the third time right?!?! Looking forward to reading more, just followed!

I'm very much looking forward to whatever you decide for the reveal, I know it will be awesome!
