13 WEEKS!!

How far along:
13 weeks

Weight gain:
+6 lbs (hey...I just got back from a 7-night cruise and gained 2 lbs in one week...oops!)

What I miss:
I want nothing more than to scoop up my 19 month old niece and snuggle with her all day.  Doc says no more than 10 pounds...she's nearly 30.  So sad.

What’s up with my body:
More belly goodness.  The top is jiggly, the bottom is harder (that's where my babies are).  Here's another discreet pic: 

What’s up with the babies:
This week, they're about the size of a medium shrimp or a small peach.  At about 3 inches, my babies now have fingerprints and veins and organs are now visible through the skin.  Their heads now make up 1/3 of their body size.  We can't wait to get another peek at them next week (14w2d).


Still nothing sounds good...ever.  I did eat my first hamburger on the cruise (which I had been avoiding like the plague).

Took Zofran on the trip but didn't need it.  Could my nausea be gone?  It began in week 6 and continued through week 12.  This last week has been pretty fabulous though.  Maybe Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel have something to do with that!

Still nothing!  LOTS of heartburn though.  Tums are a pregnant girls best friend.

Same...no pain, just large.  They haven't grown since week 9 or 10.

At 12w5d the doppler came out of hiding and I tried it again.  I found one baby close to the same spot as last time.  I think the other baby is just a notch over but could be picking up the same heartbeat.  Overall, I'm still unimpressed with the doppler but that doesn't stop me from listening to the recording of my baby's heartbeat over and over and over again.

I came back from my trip to FABULOUS news!!  JM @ Meier Madness FINALLY got a solid BFP with a fabulous doubling time.  Woohoo!  If you haven't told her CONGRATS!...now would be a great time.


  1. Hope you had wonderful and relaxing trip. Yay for sickness going away and I love the pic. Too cute!

  2. Looks like you are getting that very fast, obviously pregnant belly you so wanted. I love it. Looks great, and definitely looks like baby(ies!!!!). Glad you are feeling great, that you had a great trip and that babies are growing like weeds. And +6 is nothing - I was +7 at that point with just one so that sounds pretty damn good to me! One baby may be behind the other too, I am so glad you aren't stressing too much about it. Hopefully your ultrasound will show where that one is tucked into!

  3. I am so happy to hear your nausea is getting better! Where did you go on your cruise? I hope it was a blast.

  4. Your belly looks awesome and makes me feel less weird that at 14 weeks I have a belly too! :) Screw those girls who don't show until 20+ weeks! xoxo

  5. Awwww, you're so sweet! Glad your morning sickness is lightening up and how fun to hear (at least one of the) babies on the doppler!!

  6. Your belly is absolutely adorable!! Glad you're feeling better :)

  7. Yay for T2 :)) Well done.... thinking of you and bub xoxo
