Pregnancy Update | 13 Weeks

Thursday, March 28, 2019

Happy Thursday afternoon, friends! 

Thank you so much for all of your sweet words and warm wishes for our newest and tiniest addition! We're so excited about this little babe, and it feels so good to be able to share our happiness openly. It also feels good to be able to share all that goes along with it, like how we came to the decision to have three kids, maternity style (or lack thereof, at the moment!), products we love (and new ones we'd like to try!), 3rd row car shopping, nerves... you get the picture. ;)

Before I get to all that, though, I thought I'd start with a quick update on this pregnancy. I'm 13 weeks, so officially in the second trimester (right? or is it 14 weeks? ha!) -- and feeling good! The first trimester wasn't too hard on me. I had some days of exhaustion, a couple of strange aversions, and a huge appetite but other than that, life as usual! I'll be sharing more about the background, how we found out, how we told the girls, etc. as the weeks go on. I apologize in advance for all of the pregnancy/baby talk that will take place here over the next six months -- I promise I'll still talk about other things too!

Baby #3 Pregnancy Update | 13 Weeks

This is the only bump pic I have so far, which I shared on IG stories. #thirdkidproblems

How many weeks: 13 weeks as of Tuesday

How big is the baby: Baby is the size of a lemon!

Total weight gain: 2 pounds

Maternity clothes: Oh yes! Maternity pants along with stretchy pre-bump pants, mostly normal shirts so far

How is sleeping going: Most nights it's fine, besides getting up to use the bathroom once or twice. Last night I woke up at 4am and couldn't go back to sleep -- not so fun!

Symptoms: Just tired and some headaches here and there

Best moment this week: Feeling little flutters

Cravings: I've had some strong cravings! Caesar salad, french fries, meatball subs, cereal

Aversions: Nothing at the moment. During the first trimester I struggled with my morning coffee a little (the horror!), but when I switched back to iced coffee it helped.

Gender: We haven't found out yet! Any guesses?!

What I miss: Afternoon Starbucks runs

What I'm looking forward to: Our 3D ultrasound in a couple of weeks, finding out the gender so I can really start dreaming/planning :)

See you back here tomorrow for Friday Favorites. xo


  1. I am guessing boy this time. But I don't know how different this pregnancy is from your last one!

    1. It's been a very similar pregnancy, but with some different cravings. I wasn't sure and now I'm thinking girl -- but who knows! ;)

  2. Congrats! My best friend just found out she is pregnant with her first ... we are super close (she's like a sister) so I will be following along to see how I can be supportive of my best friend. I also think this one will be another girl. I feel like some couples are just meant to have girls or boys and I feel like you guys are meant to have girls! <3

    1. Thank you so much, and congrats to your friend -- that's so exciting, and I'm sure you'll be a wonderful support! I kind of have to agree with you. I'm not sure but this feels like a girl... but who knows. We'll find out soon! :)
