13 Weeks Today!
Today we are 13 weeks pregnant and baby is the size of a peach! We are almost out of the 1st trimester, YAY! I can't complain about the 1st trimester too much because I've felt pretty good. It wasn't until these last few weeks that I started feeling a bit of morning sickness all day long. No throwing up, just nauseous throughout the day. Aside from that I have had a lot of back pain. It started with my sciatica which was also affecting my right leg and now it’s my tailbone that hurts the most. The back pain interferes with my sleeping quite a bit. It’s so hard to get comfortable at night when my back hurts no matter how I’m laying.
I’m still not showing much yet. I just look bloated and it makes me feel uncomfortable in my clothes. I really need to go shopping and get some bigger shirts, dresses, leggings and a belly band! When I wake up in the morning my stomach looks flat and then as the day goes on and I eat more I start looking bloated. By the end of the night I feel like I ate way too much and it looks like I have somewhat of a belly. I give it a few more weeks before that belly becomes permanent. As for now I feel the weight gain most in my butt and hips. I tend to carry any weight I gain on my hips aka love handles, not cute!
We are finding out the gender in a few short weeks and get to share the moment with our whole family! It’s crazy how early they can find out what you’re having now! We are so so excited. I literally do not want to look at any baby stuff until I know what we are having, so once we find out I can start shopping : ) We already have names picked out for both a boy and girl but don’t want to say any names until we know the sex!
Aside from all this exciting baby stuff we are also getting ready to sell our house and buy a bigger one for this growing family. We are having an open house next weekend so we have to be away from our house both Saturday and Sunday so that they can show it, which is exciting, but stressful at the same time! Hopefully everything falls into place and we find our dream home soon!
Now a few questions for all the moms/moms to be out there: Do any of you have a pregnancy blog I can follow or have any recommendations of a few blogs I should follow? Did/do any of you have back pain this early on is there anything that helps? Any clothing recommendations as I continue to grow without having to buy ugly maternity clothes? Is the belly band a must have? Would love feedback from you all
