I had my 13 week appointment on Wednesday. Heartbeat was in the 160’s and everything else was normal. I went in to see LeeAnn Thursday night to take a peek at the baby. He/She was being super wiggly and we weren’t able to get a very good picture of the baby. He/She was in a really awkward position and kind of upside down. Have you heard of “the Angle of the Dangle“? It’s pretty fascinating! We tried it with Amelia and I *think* we were accurate… but heck if I remember (I’d have to pull out her ultrasound pics). We attempted to peek at this one but he/she wasn’t giving us a super great side view. I’m so glad I got to see this little one wiggling and moving all around. Makes it feel more real (as if feeling like a huge 80 year old whale didn’t feel real enough….).
I started an ExpectNet game to see what everyone thinks the baby will be, when it’ll be born and how much he or she will weigh. I loved doing these games with the other kiddos pregnancies!
Cravings: Nothing major recently… nothing that I “HAVE” to have.
Symptoms/Feelings: My hip issues are already starting. I have begun to see the chiropractor (Which Amelia calls the “firecracker”) at least once a week. I do need to go again for the 2nd time this week. Boobs are still hurting and huge. I haven’t been sleeping well either… quite a few nights in a row I have been waking up a couple times a night. Makes for some unproductive and exhausting days.
Changes: Between my huge boobs and huge belly, my regular shirts end up too short on me. I finally went shopping and got some maternity shirts and have ordered a few pair of pants off eBay.
Baby right now, at 13 weeks, is the size of a peach
