2nd Trimester

Well I made it! Its pretty exciting to be at this place and to know that I am getting closer to bringing home our babies.





Here is my newest belly pic, I am really starting to notice a difference now:

How far along: 13w5d

Total weight gain/loss: I "broke even" this morning

Sleep: Im staying up later now but I have to get up to pee every.two.hours and it stinks! I would love to sleep longer than 2 hours at a time. Preparing me for whats its like to have a baby I suppose, lol

Best moment this week: Getting the nursery cleaned out. Before it was a, well dumping ground is the nicest way to put it. I had extra clothes, blankets, and just stuff in it. It took 6 hours and 8 bags but it is cleaned out!

Food cravings: Ginger ale, cherries and peanuts

Have you bought any baby stuff: Nada, except I am wearing some maternity shirts now. They are just more comfortable.

What I miss: Cherry Pepsi. I know I can drink an occasional pop with caffeine, but Im unable to control myself around Cherry Pepsi so I dont even bother.

What I am looking forward to: My next appt in 10 days

Weekly Wisdom: Don't freak out if you can't find the heartbeat on the home doppler. I still cant hear the babies (I can find them but it doesn't stay long enough) so I called the OB and she told me not to worry but to bring it with me next time so she can show me how to use it.

You look great!! I can tell you are going to be one of those lucky women that only looks pregnant in her belly..no where else!!
You must be thrilled that you are already in your 2nd trimester.

Lindsay said...

That's so sweet that she's going to help you find them! The advice i've heard on Home-doppler use is that they are way lower than you would think they would be.

I can't believe your in your second tri! How exciting!!

Jenn said...

Shannon-Yay for you for not having the caffeine. I went the entire pregnancy and the first 6 weeks while I was nursing without any caffeine! Glad to see that things are moving along so nicely.

Megan said...

time is flying! You look great and are obviously enjoying being ku. Awesome to also hear the nursery is clean! Best of luck in the coming times!

Stephanie said...

That is great that you are in the 2nd tri!! The sleeping is the worst. Unfortunately, at least for me, it did not get any better. Toward the end I had to flip from side to side in bed every half hour b/c my hip pain was so bad. :( It was no. fun. The only way I got any sleep was during the day...since I was on bedrest it wasn't a problem. Just try not to drink too much a few hours before bed, that helped for me with the peeing all the time. Have fun with the nursery!

Samantha said...

No wonder people have been asking me if I'm having twins. Check out my 13 week picture. I was huge already and I'm only having 1!

Sarah said...

Shannie, you look amazing! What a blessing for these babies to have you as their mommy.
