Baby M 2.0 Pregnancy Update: Beginning through Week 13
I am officially out of the first trimester, thank goodness!
I am truly hoping that the morning sickness will be on its way out REALLY soon too.
I have been slightly better the past 2 days, well until the evening hits, so maybe that is a good sign.
I thought I better start my pregnancy update posts now as well.
I took weekly pictures with Miss P and I’ve been doing it with this baby as well.
I’ll do a little recap of the past weeks and then do a normal update post for this week tomorrow.
I feel like I started popping immediately with this baby. No surprise really since you do normally show faster with your second child and I figured it would be fast since I got pregnant so soon after Miss P.
I felt great and had a lot of energy in the beginning, which was strange for me since 3 days after I found out I was pregnant with P I was sick as a dog!
Morning sickness didn’t really hit me until I was about 7 1/2 weeks pregnant. Of course Travis made some comment about me not being sick yet and then the next morning I got sick. I think he jinxed me! lol
I have been sick but not nearly as much as I was with P. I’ve gagged numerous times and have no idea how I haven’t actually gotten sick. But I was nauseous 24/7.
On my worst sickness days, I would literally have to block P into our family room area while I laid on the couch all day watching her play. Poor girl!
The one thing that totally sucks is even before I knew I was pregnant, I started getting congested and that is still here! What stinks, is as soon as I start feeling like I can’t breathe, I start to gag. SO NOT FUN! And getting sick when you can’t breathe is definitely not fun!
Body wise though, I’ve have felt great. No pain. With P, I was already hurting in week 10.
These weeks, morning sickness was still here.
As you can see, in some of my pics I look super rough- no make up, hair up off neck- otherwise I would want to be sick just feeling it touch my neck, and super comfy clothes. I can’t stand the pressure of jeans on my belly when I don’t feel good. I’ve pretty much LIVED in comfy clothes these past few weeks. Poor Travis gets so excited when he sees me in jeans and if I put make up on– that’s a HUGE treat! lol
Congestion is still around. Hate it and unfortunately from what I’ve heard and read, it won’t be going any where until after this baby comes out. BLAH!
Body still feels pretty good. I did start having a few aches at the end of week 12 and in week 13 in my pelvic area but only on my right side. Guess that side just needed a little more stretching. lol
Weight wise- I’ve barely gained.
I weighed myself right after I found out I was pregnant. When I went in for my first appt. at 8 wks where I turn in paper work and they take my vitals, I gained 2 lbs but by my first real appt. at 10 wks, I had lost those 2 lbs. I guess even though I haven’t been sick too much, it is still keeping the weight off, that and the constant nausea makes it hard to eat.
I think I have gained about 1 lb. and a half back since my last appt. That is just going on my scale at home so whose knows by the doctor’s scale.
I think that pretty much sums up that last few weeks.
Tomorrow I will do my normally weekly update post for this week.
