13 weeks tomorrow

So far this pregnancy has been a breeze & I hope it continues to stay this way. I have had no physical morning sickness; just feelings of being weak & tired ALOT. As long as I eat & keep something on my stomach I am good. My belly is starting to take a rounded shape & I can no longer force myself to squeeze myself into my tight pre-pregnancy pants! I did buy a bella band for the pants I can't fasten anymore, but I prefer loose fitting cotton pants at the moment. Baby Z is growing & is now about the size of a peach. I go back to the Dr. on Friday & my mom is going with me this time. She wants to hear the baby's heartbeat, which I will be glad to share this moment with her. She's so excited, she acts like a kid in a candy store. But, I wouldn't have it any other way. I have been having crazy, crazy dreams lately which I blame on pregnancy hormones. I have to use the bathroom ALL of the time, I don't know how much worse it can get lol. I don't have any strong cravings right now for certain things, but when I have my mouth & mind set on a particular thing to eat, there is no eating anything else. The one thing that I can not eat right now is Chinese food, which I normally love, but right now it turns my stomach to even think of it. My favorite thing to eat is pizza & Olive Garden salad:) Pregnancy is funny how it completely changes alot about your body, but it is so amazing & such a miracle to be able to bring a life into this world. I love it so far & I can't wait to get bigger, feel the baby, & find out what we are having. I will post some more belly pics soon! Have a great rest of the week!

Yes, pizza is an all time favorite. I love pickles & chocolate icecream, but haven't had them together just yet. I did have mozorella sticks & a cream slush together not too long ago though!!!

I understand the being tired thing!! I'm not as bad as I was weeks ago (I'm 17 weeks now) but I still have those moments of pure exhaustion.

I'm still in my pre-pregnancy clothes, though I have to use a hairtie to keep the pants tight. I've used the belly band only once! But I haven't gained any weight at all, only a belly, so it's not too bad.
