baby is the size of: a peach
how far along are you: 13 weeks 2 days
what's happening with baby: fingerprints have formed on baby's tiny fingertips. veins and organs are clearly visitble through still-thin skin. baby's body is starting to catch up with that oversized head. if it's a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries.
due date: jan 10
maternity clothes: nada.
sleep: not so good but i think it's because it's been 870-degrees this week
best moment this week: telling our families on saturday. the picture thing didn't work out, but we still managed to surprise them! everyone is, of course, thrilled! i also called my grandpa to tell him, and he was so adorably excited. we also went facebook-public, so it's been fun getting emails, texts, and phone calls!
what are you looking forward to: the appointment on monday and hopefully getting some reassurance on the toxoplasmosis thing
food cravings: spicy and salty.
food/smell aversions: nothing in particular this week.
what do you miss: hot dogs. i was really bummed that i couldn't have one at our cookout on saturday
symptoms: bloating. exhaustion. boob tenderness. oh, and my complexion is a nightmare! i'd read/heard that your skin will go back to being like a teenager, but even then i always had a clear complexion, so i was really not expecting this!
gender: still thinking girl.
belly button: in. i have a really deep belly button, so i really wonder if it will pop at all.
wedding rings: on
i definitely think the belly popped this week. i have only gained 3 pounds so far, but i now have a little bump that won't go away. it has me kind of unnerved, for some reason.
