The Weekly Run-Down: 13

How Far Along: 13.5 weeks and ridiculously chuffed to be heading into the second trimester.

Size of baby: Baby is the size of a peach! Mmmm, peaches. Now I kind of want to eat a peach. Is that weird?

Random & Interesting Developmental Stuff:  Here's this week's run-down:

Your baby is constantly getting bigger and cuter, and his face is looking more human-like every day. His ears have moved up from his neck into place and his eyes -- which are looking more and more like your baby blues (or browns, or greens) -- have moved from the sides of the head to the front of the face. Up until now, his head has been outpacing his body, but now his body is growing faster. His legs still need to grow longer, but this week his arms will lengthen to be proportionate with his body, and he'll be able to stick his thumb in his mouth. Also by now, all of your baby's essential organs and systems have formed.

Total Weight Gain: I'm up about 1kg. Pretty sure my appetite is coming back.

Sleep: I am back to being really tired again, thanks to school having gone back. Exhausted, all the time.

Symptoms: Cramping, tiredness, discharge again (joy!) and raging hunger.

Cravings: Bread, this week. I've had my Subway fix, I've had my toast fix.. not sure where this came from.

Gender: I'm still feeling boy.

Movement: Way too early yet.

Maternity Clothes: I am in my stretchy maternity jeans this week. They are glorious. How will I ever go back to normal jeans again?

Milestones: Getting into the second trimester is pretty darned cool. I also officially found the baby's heartbeat on our doppler here at home - such an amazing feeling/sound.

What I'm looking forward to: A few weeks until our next OB appointment, but I'm already thinking ahead to the next ultrasound. It's ridiculous how attached I am to this baby.

The belly: The belly is a little bit pointier this week, I think.

Oh the discharge. Sorry, but it will only get worse. Pantyliners will be your friend. I'm 14 weeks post-partum, and I finally gave up my stretchy pants at about 10 weeks pp with a tear in my eye :) MAN those were comfy!
