Day Three Hundred Forty-Three

Shortly after I woke up this morning, I got to chat with Brandon! We even webcammed for a bit! It was nice to finally see him and spill out all the news! The first thing he said to me was "Show me your belly!" I don't have much of a belly, I still fit in my pants, but I've noticed a bit of a bulge popping out. Yay! It was nice to talk to him and see his face. So clooooseeee!

In other news... my couch smells like cat pee. I can't figure out if it's just because I'm suddenly smelling the old pee from when Winston was a baby (he had this wonderful habit of peeing on the couch a lot) or if he actually peed on it again. I dunno, I have a sensitive nose! I didn't feel any wet spots or anything... ugh, I would really just like new, grown up couches. No more black couches that are over 10 years old. Please?

Oh, and it's Wednesday!! Every Wednesday I'm gonna keep you updated on the baby progress. So without further ado...

How Far Along: 13 weeks
Size of baby: It's 3 inches, the size of a peach, approx. .81 oz.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: -2.4 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: None yet! Not even a belly band or elastic.
Gender: Don't know. I'm leaning towards boy again after a few weeks of being convinced it's a girl.
Movement: It's moving but I won't be able to feel it for a few more weeks at least.
Sleep: Sleeping great! I could sleep for a long time and could take naps too.
What I miss: Lunchmeat. OMG, what I wouldn't do for a turkey sandwich or a spicy Italian from Subway... it's killing me.
Cravings: Lunchmeat? Fruit, lots of fruit, which is what I've been eating.
Symptoms: Tired all the time, some very mild nausea, bad acne.
Best Moment this week: Noticing a belly bump!! When I suck in my tummy, only the top part really goes back, and the bottom stays popped out a bit. I still fit in my clothes, though I've noticed my jeans and capris getting a bit tighter to do up. A couple more weeks and I don't know if I'll be able to button them anymore. I'm anxious to start showing!
