Week 13

I am out of the first trimester (according to some)! It is going by faster than I thought it would and faster than I need it to. I have a large project to work on and it is not getting done. We live in a three bedroom apartment and our two children are sharing a room and the third bedroom we are using as an office/storage. We were thinking of separating the two and putting the baby in with Jewel, eventually. I am a co-sleeper, which is easier for me at night while I am nursing. My nausea and exhaustion have been keeping me from doing more than the bare minimum, but I am looking forward to a little more energy and some nesting. I had a doctor's appointment this week, and my doctor allowed me an extra long listen to the heartbeat and a little squirming!

Cravings- Oddly my craving has been for drinks, now that I am not nauseous anymore I am craving the lemon water that helped me survive the first 12 weeks, and I am craving Cherry Coke (I Love It!!!)
Emotions- I cry about everything, and I do not think a day has gone by lately that I have not cried
Discussion Question- I will be having a c-section at the hospital closest to us which is about 20-25 minutes away (although when my water broke last time I think my husband made it there in about half the time) I unfortunately cannot do a VBAC because of some problems I had with my first, maybe some day when everyone is armed with I strong stomach I will share my birth stories.
I am looking forward to a little visit with my parents this week. While my husband is working the kids and I may slip down to Florida for a while. I hope everyone has a great week :)


  1. Woohoo! Congrats on making it out of the first trimester! It's such a wonderful feeling when the nausea starts to abate!

  2. Thanks for linking up! Enjoy your visit with your parents and your trip to Florida if you end up going!
