Our Five Ring Circus: 13 Weeks

13 Weeks

We are enjoying a rainy "snow day." That's right, school was canceled due to the ice storm we were supposed to get, and it just rained all day. The kids really could have gone to school! It's going to get bad tonight, when the temperature drops. Instead, we were trapped at home, and the kiddos were restless! In other news, my dad is home from the hospital! He can now recover until the bypass next week.

I am 13 weeks pregnant!

January 31, 2011

How far along:
13 weeks

Total Weight Gained:

How big is baby? Nugget is 3 inches long, and weighs 1 ounce.

How baby is growing: Fingerprints have formed on Nugget's tiny fingertips, and the veins and organs are clearly visible through the still-thin skin. If it's a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet. My regular pants are still loose.

Sleep: I'm waking up often to use the bathroom at night, and I feel like I need a daily nap again.

Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:
Seeing my belly "pop" on Friday. Nugget must have loved mexican rice, refried beans, and the musical Cats. ;) I can definitely see a difference!

: Feeling flutters, but only when I'm completely still.

Food Cravings: Nothing.

Food Aversions:
Everything, especially drinks. I'm just eating to survive right now.

Morning Sickness:
It gets worse every week. The past 3 days have been horrible!

Unknown, and not finding out! We've had the names picked out for weeks!

Nausea morning to night, gagging, vomiting, stomach issues, fatigue, and frequent use of the bathroom.

Exercise: Still running 2 miles/3-4 days a week.

What I miss:
Enjoying the taste of food!

What I'm looking forward to:
My upcoming monthly appointment. I can't wait to hear the heartbeat again!

13 Week Picture:


My wild kids. I bet Nugget will be just like them!



  1. Love reading your weekly recaps of Nugget! Adorable!

  2. 13 weeks! Almost done with the first trimester :)

  3. You look awesome at 13 weeks! So glad to hear your dad is home from the hospital. I'll be praying for him.

  4. Awww, sorry your "morning sickness" is still going strong. At least you know the baby is still in there doing what it's supposed to and that your hormones are nice and high. I hope you get a break soon!

  5. Yay for 13 weeks! Glad to hear that your dad is resting at home!!!

  6. I love these updates. I feel so bad for you with the morning sickness stuff.

  7. You look beautiful! I love your journal and you should have your blog put in a book through Blog2print. It is a great way to create a keepsake for your children. Have a great night!

  8. Hopefully the second trimester will bring you some relief of the morning sickness! You look GREAT though and truly beaming!

  9. Sounds like everything {except the morning sickness stuff} is going great! Enjoy all that fun snow!

  10. 13 weeks is a cool time because you are officially OUT of the first tri!


  11. Oh my gosh! I can't believe the sickness is getting worse! You poor thing! I only had nausea (no puking). Can the doctor give you anything? I always had to wear the Sea-Bands and they seemed to help. Have you ever tried those? Your sickness sounds way beyond what help those might do though! I hope you start to feel better soon and this doesn't happen through the whole pregnancy!

  12. wow time really flies so fast! But still you dont look preggo at all! Blooming as always! For sure, that nugget will be like those cuties!

  13. You look great! I bet Dylan and Lexie are so excited for the baby! :)
    I really hope your morning sickness goes away!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
