Calmer and 13 weeks

How Far Along? 13 weeks

Maternity Clothes? Still not yet. I'm pretty comfy in my Lululemon pants, and 2 pairs of capris that I have that still fit

Stretch Marks? No.

Sleep? Great but waking up in the morning is so much more painful as a pregnant lady than a non-pregnant lady (although...I always HATE waking up early!)

Best Moment of the Week? My sister finding the heart with my doppler and now I totally know how and where to find it! Also it was totally awesome to tell my best friend at work. He knows that we have been trying for a long time and when I told him he was so genuinely happy for me, and he gave me the biggest hug ever! It was really sweet and unexpected.

Movement? Nada. But I can totally feel my ute now! Like when I gently press on my tummy I can feel a hard ball coming up above my pelvis. Its kinda weird!

Food Cravings? Still watermelon...I think its just the season for watermelon and not actually a pregnancy craving!!! I am kind of thinking that pregnancy cravings are a bit of b.s. Maybe during the first months some foods sound totally gross but I don't know about cravings per se. I think sometimes people just use pregnancy as a good excuse to eat things they normally wouldn't allow themselves. But hey, that's just me so far! I might change my tune if suddendly I'm dying for KFC or something! What do you guys think of cravings? Real? What do you crave?

Gender? ?

What I miss? Not being so stressed and worried all of the time.

What I'm looking forward to? The school year to end so I can quit trying to pretend I'm "not pregnant" around my co-workers. My giant boobs and thickening middle are getting harder to hide. I am just not comfortable telling most people at work yet. I am planning to tell my boss in July when school is out.

Weekly Wisdom: Just when you think you can finally breathe and all is going well....the shit will hit the fan! Don't let you guard down!

Milestones: Officially in T2. Finding the heartbeat.

Emotions: I was totally feeling real and pregnant and breathing a sigh of relief....then I got my most recent scare (brown spotting last night after a massage- see my last post). Now i'm back to being a stupid big ball of freak out stress! Thank you all for your supportive and kind comments on my last post. The stupid nurse never called me back. I hate her. I miss my RE. They were always RIGHT THERE to help anytime! And now I feel so alone! The spotting has stopped and it was really light so i'm not freaking out right now. I hope that maybe the massage I had just loosened up some old blood and that it isn't some new horrendous problem. I will call the asshole nurse at 8am to hopefully catch her before she starts seeing patients.

I'm also really excited for this weekend. I have a date with my 3 best friends from highschool (we all live in different cities now) to go to see SATC2 and dinner. I will be making my pregnancy announcement to them! They know we have been trying and i'm excited to tell them our news (as long as I still have good news to tell on this spotting is gone and nothing to worry about).

Thanks again everyone for the great comments on my last post! I love yas!



  1. Want me to punch asshole nurse in the face for you? ;) So glad the spotting stopped! But at least it wasnt red or pink...Ive heard brown is just old blood. So your idea about the massage just loosening up stuff sounds like the case. I cant wait to see SATC2!! Have fun!!! :)

  2. Congrats!!!! Glad you are feeling better. xo

  3. I'm glad you are feeling better, but that's terrible that the nurse didn't call you back! I hope you have a great weekend and have fun with your friend. xo

  4. Glad you're feeling more calm...but seriously, that nurse sucks. I love being with an RE because they "get" it. When I was with an OB/GYN for Clomid they never called back and I felt like their last priority! It sucks. Why can't all doctors be as attentive as REs?
    Congrats on the 2nd Trimester LTB!

  5. That is beyond annoying the nurse didn't call back, and I totally hear ya on missing the RE. I also new my nurse JJ would call me no matter what! Ugh, so frustrating. I'm glad the spotting has stopped, and will be praying it never comes back. How fun you're telling your besties this weekend, super exciting!!
