14 Jun13 Weeks and Counting

So I’m at the end of my 13th week being pregnant and what a ride it has been so far.  Kudos to all the women out there who choose to have more than one child, because the havoc it reeks on our bodies is not for the weak.

I started my week on the couch and stayed there until Friday, feeling ill and having no motivation what so ever to move. I wake up most mornings needing some food; my food of choice is cereal such as Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Then, I have to lie on the couch and wait for the food to settle before I can even attempt to do anything else. Some days my stomach hurts all day and other days it only hurts for the morning.

Let’s see what else; oh I had to buy some new, bigger bras due to my enlarging and hardened breasts. They aren’t as tender as they were the first few months, but they are hard as rocks.  I had to go up an entire cup and band size and I think I will need an even bigger one before this pregnancy is over.

This week we went in for all the genetic testing to make sure we were having a healthy baby. They test for all kinds of genetic diseases including down syndrome. It was a little nerve racking because no one wants to hear their baby could have serious problems and then you are faced with a dilemma on what to do. Anyway, no worries are baby is perfectly healthy so far and we continue to pray it will stay that way. 

Here is a picture of our baby at 13 weeks:

 

It has the infamous Peterson chin… 

We will find out the gender on July 27th and I can’t wait. We are hoping for a girl, but of course we will take a boy too.

Here’s to week 14, I hope I feel better and that my energy level and motivation level starts to improve. I guess I can just pretend I feel great and maybe I will for a change. Until next week!!
