13 Weeks

 How far along: 13 weeks
Gender:  Currently taking predictions! ;)  So far, I'd say about 80% of the guesses have been the same so I can't wait to see who's right!
Belly button in or out:  In
Maternity clothes:  Already mixing in a couple things with my regular clothes. Plus, I never stopped wearing my favorite leggings + tank from last time - just. so. comfortable.
Stretch marks:  Been slathering on Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter daily!  It worked well before so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Sleep:  Sleep hasn't been great for about two years. ;)  Trying to get to bed early as often as I can these days.  I am ALWAYS tired.
Best moment of the week:  Hearing baby's heartbeat for the first time! It's cool to see it beating during ultrasounds but there's something special about actually hearing it. :)
Worst moment of the week:  Poor Ellie getting sick.  I think we slept about two hours Wednesday night, meaning she was awake and miserable the rest of the night.  Luckily, she seems to be feeling much better!
Miss anything:  My patience, if that counts?
Movement:  The teeniest of flutters every once in awhile over the past week or so! This was hands down my favorite part of being pregnant so I'm definitely looking forward to feeling more soon.
Cravings:  Cravings this time around have been very similar to the first time, although much sooner in the pregnancy.  I'd say top ones lately have been anything sweet - from fruit to donuts and everything in between.  Looking back at the first trimester in general, I had one too many carbs, a LOT of clementines and what was possibly the best tasting Chinese food ever for Tyler's birthday.
Queasy or sick:  Good for the most part.  That car sickness feeling is still coming and going a bit at this point.
Looking forward to:  Dinner with my family tonight to celebrate my grammy's birthday and maybe trying to squeeze in a nap tomorrow afternoon.

I was 12 weeks the day before Thanksgiving and had to start taking pictures at the same time I did when Ellie was in the belly, so here's my 12 week picture. :)

See similar posts in 2014 and 2015 for chalkboard reference.

Good thing I didn't have my hopes up on trying to get Ellie in these weekly pictures, huh? :)

Also, thank you all so much for the well wishes!!! XO
