13 Weeks!

Hello friends!

This is the last of the pre-written posts.. Technically today I am 14 weeks along, but you will have to wait for the official post tomorrow 🙂

Here we are at 13 weeks!! (July 19- July 26)!!

Yup our little bean is the size of a Peach! Can you believe it!

We are officially in the second trimester of my pregnancy!! Holy bananas! It is hard to believe a third of my pregnancy is complete!

According to BabyCenter.com, “this week Fingerprints have formed on your baby’s tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you’re having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. ”

Look at the difference!!

am I huge.. yes.. haha As you can see my midsection is getting bigger and bigger every week.

I feel great.. well physically I feel great.. emotionally that is another issue.

I have had a ups and downs this week, these pregnancy hormones are no joke! I think what has been bothering me is that I don’t feel like I can be as active as I would like to be, I guess I am just too scared to do something wrong and hurt the baby.  But I have to remind myself that I am in good shape and I need to continue to exercise and keep fueling my body properly so that we will have a healthy and happy baby. After the baby is born I will work twice as hard to get back into shape.  In fact, I have already decided that in Feb. 2014 I will be running the Disney Princess half marathon!  I can’t wait to see our little jumping bean cheering me on while I run this!


I am hoping the second trimester brings along more stable emotions.. ha. My hubby is amazing, and I am so grateful for him and his patience with me 🙂

I still don’t think I’ve “popped” yet, but it’s getting there, a few more weeks and I will be out of this awkward “is she pregnant or just gaining weight” phase! I CANNOT wait to have a bump!! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee 🙂
