13 Weeks

I'm now in the 2nd trimester!  Woo hoo!  B wanted to get in the picture with me this week. :)
Is it just me or is my hair getting darker and my skin getting MUCH paler??  I know it's winter but wow, I'm looking like a ghost these days! 

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 13 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby T is about the size of a peach
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I lost a pound this week somehow
Maternity Clothes: None yet but I am rocking the Bella Band with my jeans because I can't button them anymore.  My work pants are getting tighter too but I can still button them.
Gender: Won't know for a few more weeks.  I'm hoping we get a "money shot" at our OB appt next week.  I have a feeling it's a boy!
Movement: He/she is moving all around in there as we've seen a few times but I'm not feeling any of it just yet.
Sleep:  I'm LOVING sleep!  I feel ready for bed around 3pm.  Ha!  I do wake up usually once a night around 3-4am to go to the bathroom.
What I miss: Not waking up every single night to go to the bathroom.  And caffeine.  But both are easy trades so I'm not complaining.
Cravings: Sweets   But that's not really that unusual for me normally, I've never been one to pass up on chocolate.    Now I'm just actually allowing myself to eat it!  :)
Symptoms: Mostly tiredness and back pain in the evening.  I've started sleeping on my side most nights because it makes my back feel better.  I have scoliosis so my acupuncturist says the back pain isn't going to go away most likely so I predict a pregnancy pillow will be entering our bed in the near future!
Best Moment this week: Entering the 2nd trimester!!  I'm so excited to already be here!  The 1st trimester FLEW by and I hope this one does too.
