13 Weeks

A close up of the "bump"
13 Weeks and Glowing

What's Happening with Peanut?
  • Fingerprints have formed on Peanut's tiny fingers.
  • The organs and veins can be seen through the still thin skin.
  • Peanut is almost 3 inches long and weighs nearly an ounce.

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 5 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? Not yet, but I have had to purchase pants in a larger size.
  • Sleep: Sleep was the best it has been in quite awhile this past week.
  • Best moment this week: Hearing the baby's heartbeat at the doctor! Peanut's heartbeat was strong, steady, and averaging 150 beats per minute. Dr. H was quite pleased.
  • Food cravings: Cereal and milk (I had 3 bowls for supper last night).
  • Belly button in or out? In.
  • What I miss: My stamina - everything takes longer now because I seem to tire easily. At least it is a good excuse for taking naps on the weekend.
  • What I am looking forward to: Taking Peanut to his/her first Georgia Tech football game next week.

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • Daddy is just over a week away from finishing project number one. This means he is crazy busy but things will slow down soon.
  • Daddy's smile when he heard Peanut's heart beat was the sweetest site ever. Then he busted out some dance moves to the beat, and Mama died laughing.
  • Cute Daddy moment: Last night Daddy spent the better part of 20 minutes trying to explain to Peanut how to give us a thumbs up on the ultrasound (schedueled for 18 weeks).

haha....that's cute that your husband was dancing to the heartbeat! Priceless.

And you look great! I get a bigger belly bump than that after eating a big meal :) I hope all continues to go well.

Kimberly, you look fantastic! So sweet about M's reaction to the heartbeat. You're doing well Mama, keep it up. even though I've always been heavy when I was pregnant I probably felt my cutest and sexiest--it wasn't the way my body looked that's for sure. But the hormones and life inside made me feel fantastic!

Looking good! Have you and Mikey talked about whether you will find out the sex or not? I was happy with our decision to find out because I'm too much of a planner, but I can also see how waiting until his/her birthday would add to the excitement too!

Hi Kim,
You left a comment this morning about prenatal yoga and I don't have a simple answer...The best DVD's that I can recommend are called Beginning Yoga Step by Step- on Amazon. They are not prenatal- but really well taught. My personal opinion is that as long as you know what your doctor says is contraindicated, you can still do yoga- particularly the standing poses. Once you get into later stages of pregnancy, those standing poses (DVD 1) will feel great on the hip flexors and back.
Hope that helps.
