Our little surprise bundle of joy now has a new due date! I am further along than originally thought so our due date went from being February 12 to February 1 and because I will be having a scheduled c-section little baby Badali will most likely be greeting us sometime in late January!
Hopefully in the next few weeks my Doctor will be able to find us an OBGYN out here in Toronto as this has been not such an easy task as many are not accepting new patients, no longer practicing at the hospital I will be delivering at or have retired! Who knew finding an OBGYN to handle your care and delivery would be so difficult!
How Far Along: 13 week, 4 days
Maternity Clothes: Yup, have been in them pretty much since finding out we were expecting!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I am now 130lbs and I estimate my pre-pregnancy weight at 110 – 115lbs so I have already gained 15 – 20lbs. This is typical of my pregnancies as I tend to gain more than the average person …. I eat like a champ!
Stretch Marks: None so far! I was lucky to not get any with my previous two pregnancies so I am hoping the luck continues.
Symptoms: At this point my exhaustion and the sensation of having to pee every five minutes has taken a hike so I am pretty much symptom free other than sore boobs!
Have You Started To Show Yet: The bump is growing steady, I am definitely looking more like I am 4-5 months than 3!
Sleep: I am still not getting the best sleep and I chalk it up to the fact I can no longer sleep on my belly! I doubt this will change but I am use to lack of sleep so it doesn’t really bother me much!
Anything Making You Queasy Or Sick: Last night on our way home from Hamilton there was someone eating something on the Go Bus and the smell of whatever it was did make my stomach turn … so we moved seats lol!
Happy Or Moody: Still have low tolerance for idiots lately, I find I tolerate things less than normal.
Food Cravings: Still loving Tang popsicles and sour keys. I have noticed I have wanted BBQ’d food more lately making the better half take me to the grocery store at a whim to buy big juicy steaks.
Food Aversions: Still sad I don’t like Caesar Salad 🙁 I tried again to no luck and couldn’t eat it.
Best Moment This Week: Hearing the baby’s heartbeat at my doctors appointment yesterday. Something about hearing that crazy sound just sends me into a state of happiness, especially with being high-risk and all the issues up to this point it was nice to hear.
Movement: None yet.
Labor Signs: None and if all goes well I won’t have to feel labor signs as I will have a scheduled c-section prior to my due date.
Gender: Fingers crossed we can find out at our next ultrasound.
Belly Button In Or Out: Still an inny!
What I Miss: Sleeping and Caesar Salad haha!
What I Am Looking Forward To: Finding out the sex of our baby. I am a planner and I can’t wait to know whether it is a boy or a girl so I can start laying out my plans for the nursery and start shopping!
Weekly Wisdom: Give in to your cravings, to be honest as long as you are eating healthy meals for breakfast/lunch/dinner having those chips & dip, huge slice of chocolate cake or ice cream smothered in whip cream and chocolate sauce isn’t going to kill you!
If you are also 13 weeks pregnant below is some information on how your baby is growing!
How your baby’s growing:
Your uterus may be big enough now to show the world that you’re expecting, but your baby is still tiny, about 3 inches, 7 to 8 centimeters long from crown to rump and weighs nearly an ounce, and is about the size of a peach. Despite their small proportions, you would see a fully formed baby complete with unique fingerprints if you could look inside your womb now and when you poke your stomach gently and your baby will feel it. Your baby’s veins and organs are clearly visible through their still-thin skin, and their body is starting to catch up with their head — which makes up just a third of their body size now.
For many women, the side effects of early pregnancy; frequent urination, intense fatigue and nausea start diminishing sometime in the second trimester.
