Bumpdate: 13 weeks along

Thank y'all so much for all the love yesterday.
 Reid and I feel blessed beyond words with all the love and support already surrounding this little bump of ours.

Oh and what a bump it already is at only 13 weeks... pretty sure none of that is baby, just cheese toast. 

Here's whats been going on since the positive test thing happened on Jan 16th.

How far along: 13 weeks

Size of Baby: depends on the app... either a peach or a hot jalapeno

Gender: Reid swears he saw a penis on the 8 week ultrasound, you know being a banker and all makes him an expert. My gut feeling is that it is also a boy.

Weight gain: 3 big ones

Maternity clothes: ummm is it bad to say that I am already loving maternity pants? Most of my clothes still fit with the assistance of a hair tie. I am defiantly stocking up on tunic tops and flowy shirts...Old Navy is my new bff.

Stretch marks: using Palmers Coco Belly Butter like its my job. 

Sleep: sleeping has gotten so much better. Early early on, I tossed and turned all night long. Lately, it seems like I just cannot get enough sleep. As soon as I walk in the door in the afternoons, I have to give myself a pep talk not to crawl in bed for the night. Still waking up a 1-2 nights a week to go pee from all this water I am drinking. 

Best moment this week: being able to share our news about this bun I got in the oven. Keeping that secret was the hardest thing I have ever done. period. And seeing my favorite personal photog for a quick photo shoot.

Miss anything: a club sandwich. I would kill for a club sandwich right now. Oh and to not have a continuous headache That would be amazing.

Movement: Nada

Belly button in or out: In

Wedding Rings on or off: On

Cravings: I am eating pretty normal these days. During weeks 5-10, I was on a strict diet of water, ginger-ale, cheese toast and saltines. It was pretty fancy...

Anything making you queasy or sick: so basically every thing made me queasy at first. It was like the from the moment I peed on the test, I had morning sickness all day long, every single day. The only thing that seemed to squash it was eating a snack every hour on the dot. Thankfully at week 10 this seemed to ease up...praise Jesus.

Symptoms: the queasiness and nausea has for the most part subsided and thank god. I am still rocking the extreme exhaustedness and headaches. Oh lawd the headaches, they go on all day long. Crazy hormone mood swings and awesome breakouts on my face. And smells, everything smells terrible. Basically for the last 4 weeks I have been either blowing my nose or sneezing non bad, I now carry a full box of tissues in my purse. This week brought new and exciting symptoms, dizziness and extreme pregnancy brain. I cannot remember anything.
 Yup, only the fun stuff happening over here. 

Looking forward to: Hearing the babe's heartbeat at my 16 week appointment, cleaning out the spare bedroom and dragging Reid to see Insurgant this weekend.

Have a wonderful weekend y'all! 



  1. In love hearing the details of you and Lil D! And I'm proud of your journals! Keep up the great work momma, you're doing great!

  2. Loving your first bump date! Lots of love, xoxo

  3. Congrats! I stumbled upon your blog and can't wait to follow along on your journey! Motherhood is simply the best; welcome to the club!

  4. This is so sweet! Glad to hear that you are feeling better. How did you tell your hubs and family that you were pregnant?

  5. Ahhh! Isn't it fabulous to hit the mark where you can SHOUT it from every corner!? You look so incredible and I am so happy for ya'll! Congrats and happy weekend! xo

  6. No it is not, maternity pants are so much more comfortable than other pants. Have you heard of the Ramzi method? Apparently if the placenta was on the left side of the uterus it's a girl, and the right side means boy. They say it's like 99%, I've never tried it myself though!

  7. I bet sharing the news was just the best thing ever!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  8. I have on those exact Old Navy jeans right now and LOVE them! That's so funny what you said about your husband being "an expert", just wait for the old wives tales. Some are just crazy.

  9. If you're trying to predict the gender, look at your husband's family. Are there alot of boys, alot of girls, or is it mixed? The father determines the gender of the baby. Case in point, my husband's family is ALL boys except for his mother and grandmother. 2 uncles, 4 boy cousins, 4 boy second cousins, then he has 1 brother and 2 nephews. We aren't having kids but if we did you could bet we'd end up with a boy.

  10. I had that crazy sense of smell too! Glad your nausea went away, pregnancy is so glamorous right?

  11. I love the preggers top and the statement necklace! Sharing the news must have been the absolute best! Only a couple more weeks until that little heartbeat.. it'll be here before you know it :)

  12. Love this presh, happy post! Hope you keep feeling better, mama! xx

  13. ahh sorry to hear about the headache girly!! your cheese toast bump is the cutest thing i ever did see.
