13 weeks- July 1st

So I am changing my bumpdate up a little bit. My real due date the doctor gave me is January 5th. Originally I wasn't going to go with that because I am measuring at Jan 8th. Well I am so excited about this pregnancy that I have started thinking in my heads and counting my weeks on Saturdays. So here I am switching it up! :) Also- I didn't like the black background, and I hated my outfit for the pictures, for now on, its where ever I am, in whatever I am! :)

no picture this week, I have been slacking on that!! I will get better.

How far along: 13 weeks! 
How big is baby: Total weight gain: 5.2 lbs
Maternity clothes:  wearing the belly band!
Sleep: It has been fine, still waking up once a night to go to the bathroom. I had a night where no matter what I couldn't get comfortable!! I couldn't sleep.
Best moment of the week:  It was a busy week of editing and getting ready for a wedding I was shooting in Iowa
Food cravings: none really this week
Food aversions: The thought of Juicing still makes me a little queasy but it has really eased up a lot!
Symptoms: growing pains, and watching my pants not fit anymore and my belly poke out more, other than that I am feelign great!
boobs sore- still there, but not as bad
cramps- not as much
tiredness- pretty much where I was pre pregnancy
irritability- back to normal. :)
acne- still the same, less prevelant
bloat- hard to say, belly? baby? bloat? all? :) I definitely bloat after i eat! :)
 burning muscle pain in upper abdomen- almost 100% gone!
Movement: none yet! 
Gender: a month and a half way
What I’m looking forward to: My growing belly, finding out gender, feeling movement! 
What I miss: nothing at the moment! LOVE LOVE LOVE knowing there is a little baby in my belly!! It is just the most amazing thing ever!!!!
Next appt: July 25th! :) With my new midwife!

Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, the veins and organs are clearly visible through the still-thin skin, and baby's body is starting to catch up with his/her head — which makes up just a third of his/her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce. (taken from


  1. Pregnant!!! Congratulations. Isn't it exciting? I've not gotten into the bump updates myself, but I am trying to keep up on the musings of the other kids about "cinco". We're at 17 weeks and so eager to learn if we're pink or blue. Make sure you take photos of yourself - good or bad - - I missed this with my first and she asks all the time where those pictures are...

  2. Feeling the baby move was always one of the things I looked forward to the most. It's SO awesome. :)

  3. I love that at only 13 weeks, they already have fingerprints!! So awesome!
