13 week bumpdate
Well, we’re now more than halfway through the thirteenth week, but we’re still going to do this bumpdate. It’s harder this time around to take the pictures and then go through them (to ensure not to post any of the embarrassing ones) and then upload them. But! The good news is that I had the update done on time, I just had to get the pictures organized and uploaded. (Please forgive the lateness, I’ll do better. I’m renovating my kitchen and my brain is everywhere right now.)
So without further ado, let’s get to the bumpdate.
How far along? 13 weeks
Baby is now the size of: A lemon
Gender: We don’t know yet, and I don’t even have a strong gut feeling anymore. On the one hand I’d love a brother for Luke so close in age, but on the other hand, he has so many little girlfriends that bring out the sweet and gentle side of him that a sister would be just as perfect for our family.
Maternity clothes? Oh yes! And I (not so) secretly love it because it means I get to go shopping!
Movement: Still having flutters here and there.
Food cravings: BAGELS. NOODLES. FRENCH FRIES. Give. Me. All. The. Carbs. (So embarrassing…)
Food aversions: Nothing this week! To make this happen, I just only ate carbs. It worked really well for me.
Favorite meal this week: Brunch with my grandparents, dad & Kay, Curtis & Luke. Not only was the food great, but there’s something special about getting four generations together for a meal. And watching my granny crack up at Luke tornado-ing around the house really made my heart smile.
Emotional moment this week: The enterrement ceremony for Curtis’ grandmother.
Best moment this week: Watching Luke get loved on by all of his cousins. Family is the best.
Labour signs? Nope! (Thank goodness!)
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings off or on? On.
Looking forward to: Getting out of the burrito belly phase and into the full-blown basketball-under-her-shirt pregnant phase. My belly looks big and around in the photos below, but that’s a combo of the dress and stripes I think. When I wear a regular shirt or sweater I am definitely in burrito phase.
