BumpDate: 13 Weeks

What I'm craving?: Tacos people.  Like I think I could eat them everyday type situation.

Funny/Memorable Story Of The Week:  Mia's new thing is when she gets mad, no matter what she will say and I quote, "Fine.  I'm not going to play with you annnnnnnnnnyyyyyymore."  Alrighty then Miss Sassy Pants.

Weight Gain: I don't weigh myself much even when I'm not pregnant, so until my next doc appointment I have no idea.

Work Out Regimen: I've worked out twice this week.  Feels good to get back to the gym.

What's Different?:  I get aggravated pretty easily, but that's probably mostly because I can't have wine right now.  My tolerance level is not so great at work.  More so than usual.  Dumb people are worse when you're pregnant.  See also:  last week's comment about mood swings. Yep.  That.

Boy or Girl:  Still feeling boy for some reason although the thought of a boy makes me all sorts of nervous.  Boys are horny when they get older and that scares me.  I'm dead serious about this.  I'm scared about a horny boy in my house.  I know girls are horny too, but boys, ummmm...ewwwww.  Weird? Yes.  Honest? Yes.  I've never claimed to be anything other than that, so...

Sleep:  Better than last week, I think the working out is helping my sleep.

Labor Signs: Negative good buddy.

Movement: Here and there, but again still not convinced it's the actual baby that's moving.

What I Miss:  Nothing in particular at the moment.

What I'm Looking Forward To: My hair appointment this weekend.  Can I just say the decision to go a smidge darker right before I got pregnant was a genius idea.  My roots would have been super scary by now if I was my lighter blonde color.

How Baby's Growing: This week baby is the size of a medium shrimp and fingerprints have formed on his/her tiny fingertips.  Can we just pause for a moment a how amazing this process is and how quickly they become so "real."  Wow.  Just wow.

The Big Sister:  Mia's doing great.  I feel like she has grown up so much and so quickly these past two weeks.  She seems so much older and so much smarter each and every day.  I love her heart, wish for a dose of her energy and let's be honest, I'm a little jealous of her dance skills.  I feel a little guilty that I don't have her in dance or gymnastics or something.  I know she would love it and I need to do it.  It would be a really great thing for she and I to do together before and after the baby gets here.  I think the guilt is normal.  I think there is a sense of guilt when you are building a second baby when you are so attached to your first.  It took shall pass I know, but for right now I have a bit of guilt Momma going on.

I hope you have a great weekend!  Happy Friday!

Teenagers? Ha! Try a 2 year old that likes to play with himself in the bathtub. Or welcomes the morning diaper change with a hard on. Team boy!

The whole having a horny teenage boy doesn't really bother me, what bothers me is the fact that I grew testicles in my belly, now THAT's weird!

I agree.. it's amazing, the process our bodies go through, the process the baby goes through. It's truly amazing.

You made me laugh about possibly having a boy. LOL.

I think working out while pregnant is really important. It can't do anything bad, really, as long as you do it in moderation. So, good for you!
