How far along: 13 weeks, 1 day.
Baby size: Almost 3 inches long (about the size of a pea pod).
Must have items: My bed, air conditioning, never have an empty stomach or I feel nauseous and/or lightheaded.
Sleep: I wake up a few times a night but fall back asleep easily. But, I have to get at least 8 hours of sleep or else my body feels like it’s sick and shutting down. I hope I can get through having a newborn and those sleepless nights..
Cravings: Everything citrusy and sour. Mostly Icee’s, sour gummy worms and orange juice. Also still loving guacamole, my Starbucks Chai’s and decaf White Mocha’s. I have strange food aversions to plain water (I have to put Mio flavoring in it or else I can’t stand it), the tomato basil flavored Wheat Thins and Tajin seasoning. Weird, I know.
Baby movement: None that I feel yet but lots on the ultrasounds.
Gender: Don’t find out until early October but I already 100% feel like it’s a boy this time around.
Favorite moment(s) this week: My ultrasound, getting back good fetal test results, scoring an expensive “pregnancy pillow” for under half the price online.
Least favorite moment(s) this week: Feeling lightheaded (hate that feeling) and like I’m on a boat (I will go into this a lot more in a future post).
