13 Weeks!

Today is the second day of my second trimester! Wahoo! I finally am out of the first and am not looking back.  I feel truly blessed to have had such an easy first trimester compared to most pregnant women.  No vomiting--I MEAN NONE, ZIP, ZILCH.  Many times I felt as though I might, or I thought I would feel better if I did, but didn't. I am not really feeling nauseous after eating anymore either. I have developed a new pregnancy symptom though that I will tell you about in the survey below.

How far along? 13 WEEKS! YEEHAA!
Total weight gain: I am not sure.  I haven't weighed myself in a long time.  I don't really want to either.  Its just easier that way. At least for now.
Maternity clothes? I think I am about to have to trade over to maternity pants.  I am tired of pulling my pants up because they are falling below my growing belly. (I used to have to pull my pants up because they were too big... funny how things change.)
Stretch marks? Not yet, thank goodness. 
Sleep: Much better lately. I am getting used to getting up in the night to use the restroom.  It is pretty neat how the body prepares the mother for the future late night disturbances.
Best moment this week: Fixing these terrible roots on my head.  

Miss Anything? The usual, but I have really been missing margaritas this week. 
Movement: You know, not yet. But I have been feeling a little different things happening in my stomach and I keep thinking it is movement.  I have a feeling in the next week or two I will feel a kick or hiccup.  (At least I hope!)
Food cravings: FINALLY satisfied my cheeseburger craving!! FINALLY! Union Kitchen had the BEST cheeseburger! I halved it too so I got to enjoy it TWICE!!  Hmm... maybe I will order another for dinner tonight. ;)  No other cravings really. 
Gender Prediction:  Well, everyone is predicting boy. I don't think anyone has guessed girl yet.  I still have no clue. 
Labor Signs: N/A
Symptoms: Fatigue of course hasn't disappeared.  The newest symptom which my OB/GYN warned me about is round ligament pain. It is supposed to start in the second trimester, and sure enough it began last week.  It is a sharp jabbing pain felt in the lower abdomen and/or groin area.  It doesn't happen all the time, very randomly. 
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!!  I felt so happy earlier this week just thinking about the future and whats to come.  
Looking forward to: THANKSGIVING! I cannot wait to eat DELICIOUS food and be around my wonderful family.  This is the best time of year.  There is nothing I would rather do, no place I would rather be than with my family which I am so thankful for.
