13 Weeks

Yesterday I hit 13 weeks and I wanted to capture a few highlights from the first trimester.  I'm not sure I will do a weekly post but I do hope to capture a few belly pictures and feelings along the way.

  • Naps have been a daily occurrence.  Ryan and I are fortunate to ride to work together and I drive in the  mornings and he drives home.  Everyday I'm able to catch a quick 30 minute nap on the way home and I'm not sure how I'd survive without these!
  • No specific cravings (besides orange juice) but I have found myself more hungry in general.  I try to keep my extra snacks healthy but I do have a sweet tooth and I have a hard time denying that cookie sitting in the break room in the afternoon...
  • Thankfully no sickness or nausea!  I feel very fortunate as I know how miserable that can be.  
  • I've been able to keep up exercising for the  most part.  I do find myself tiring easily but I've managed to keep up my runs at the park and even my cardio class at the gym.  
  • I'm still wearing normal clothes but they definitely are more snug!  I think it's time to bust out the belly band I just purchased at Target and will probably make the switch to maternity pants in the next few weeks. 
And here's the 13 week pic.... It's hard to tell but there definitely is a little bump/pooch there.  I can tell that I've been growing in other areas as well and I'm just trying to embrace this as it's all a part of pregnancy!
