See my belly?

As promised, I took a new belly picture. And I have to admit, as much as I love watching the bump grow, I'm a LITTLE terrified that this baby is going to be huge! That would really come as no surprise, since my husband and his siblings were all over nine pounds, and my younger brother was eight pounds (on time). I was the other extreme- born almost four weeks early at only 5 pounds 6 ounces. Let's hope for something around 7-8 pounds, shall we? :)
Honestly, I'm just hoping for a healthy baby, no matter what the size.

13 weeks! :)

13 weeks!
"Your fetus is forming teeth and vocal cords... savor this, their non-functional phase. Baby is approaching normal proportions, with a head now only one third the size of the body. Intestines are in the process of moving from the umbilical cord to baby's tummy. (Much more convenient.)"

How far along? 13 weeks
Baby’s Size: a peach! holy moly!
Total Weight Gain: about four pounds now
Gender: we're hoping pink :) but I'm feeling blue!
Sleep: Still waking up several times a night. Trying to adjust to sleeping on my left side- but I always wake up on my back.
Symptoms: Feeling much better! Nothing to complain about.
Best Moments this week: Telling my mom that we're pregnant and getting to spend time at home with my best friend Shannon.
Food Cravings: none really.
Food Aversions: greasy food and I aren't really getting along. Of course, all of the fast food we had to eat on vacation probably didn't help.
What I miss: Jumping on the trampoline with my brothers. Oh, and hot tubs!
What I am Looking forward to: Fitting into maternity pants- none of mine fit anymore. And, next week I'll be in the second trimester!
Milestones: We told both of my parents within this last week and a half. :) Which was great. It was the hardest secret to keep!

I realize this is ALREADY old even as I post it, but oh well. Here is my 12 week belly picture, taken while I was on vacation. I think the bump is bigger now. I'll take a new one asap!

We're alive and well!

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates- my macbook decided to take a dive on me, and the problem with living so close to the border is that the closest Mac Store is over three hours away. We STILL haven't found the time to get it fixed, because I'm now on a cross country vacation with my father, step-mother, and three younger brothers. We went to the Grand Canyon yesterday and today we'll be at Bryce Canyon. Let me tell you- hiking while pregnant is an interesting experience.
The pregnancy is going well. I'm almost twelve weeks now, and I'm definitely starting to show. I'll have to take a new belly picture soon. I've been feeling great!
I hope everyone else is doing well!
