Week 13 Pregnancy UpdateApril 05, 2011
Belly? Pretty much non-existent still. I still am in denial that I will actually look pregnant this go around. I never did last time, I just looked fatter than the already upper 200ish pounds I already was at that point. It seems unusual that my belly would actually be able to hide much longer given that I’m 115+ pounds lighter now, and there has to be room to hide. Still, if you have never before seen the stomach of a person that has lost 115 pounds, you won’t at all be able to understand that there is a lot flab/skin/junk hanging around the abdomen area that I’m not sure pregnant belly will ever be able to show through. I hope I’m wrong, but until proven otherwise, that is what I think. For that reason, you likely will NOT be seeing me post the typical belly pics… sorry to disappoint. I will say that it is official as of this week – non of my pre pregnancy pants fit and the mediums I was wearing in most shirts are too small – so either I’ve gained WAY too much weight from all of the sour patch kid eating, OR the pregnancy body changes are real and happening to me.
“L”s Room? Well... we are making progress. It’s painted! YAY! We chose a Behr color called French Court. It is a lovely medium blue. You can see the color, here, just ignore the big covered mess in the middle... that is actually his new bed!
I really love how it turned out. We simply need a mattress and a dresser, and some time to arrange things, and he’ll be officially ready to move in there. He is still excited about it all.
I have a doctor appointment this Friday, and I’m very excited to hear this baby’s heartbeat again. I find these early months difficult waiting in between appointments to hear the heartbeat – before the first movements of the baby are felt. At this appointment, I’ll get to schedule my BIG ultrasound for the next! YAY! We’ll finally find out whether you guys will be sending me all new girls clothes, or if I will be making a trip down the basement to haul out “L’s” hand me downs. Do I have a preference? Nope… honestly not. I can think of many reasons I would love to have a girl, and just as many reasons I want a boy, so its win/win I guess.
