week 13

Baby’s size
Your beautiful baby is the size of a Meyer lemon this week—and his vocal cords are beginning to develop.
Baby's Length: 2.91 in.
Baby's Weight: 0.81 oz.
How I am feeling
Well, if I would have written this post yesterday I would have said this week was pretty awesome.  I had very little nausea this week and my energy level is improving.  Today has been a little rough though.  I've been extremely nauseated and just about lost my breakfast this morning but I was able to keep it down, thankfully.

What do I miss
Sleeping through the night.  I get up to use the bathroom every night at least once.  I almost always wake up at 1:30 am to head to the bathroom.  For some reason after this bathroom trip, I'm awake for at least an hour before I drift off again. So annoying!

Gender prediction
Dave - boy  Me - not sure.  Only another 6 weeks or so until we find out though!

Food cravings
None this week.

Food aversions
Pretty much anything I used in the beginning weeks to help out with the nausea - ginger ale, lemon drops, SweetTarts, saltines

Highlights this week 
-Entering the second trimester

Not so great moments this week
-Finding out I was misinformed about how much leave I can take for maternity leave.  I can only take 6 weeks, and I was planning to take 8.  Not sure how we're going to work that out since our daycare doesn't take infants until 8 weeks of age.
-Had my thyroid level re-checked and found out it had not dropped at all.  The doctor upped my dosage so hopefully that will get things moving in the right direction.

I'm sorry about the daycare, and your thyroid issue. It will all work out, but I know it's stressful when you're dealing with it all. Hopefully every single bit of nausea will be gone soon! I wonder if you can handle peppermints now? It's so strange how our bodies are repulsed by certain foods and smells while pregnant! hugs sweet friend. xo
