A Quick Pregnancy Update: 13 Weeks

by jessicaturner on July 11, 2014

13Weeks
Well, I’m officially in the second trimester… I’ll be 14 weeks on Monday. (My shirt is non-maternity from thredUP.)

Due Date: January 12, 2015 (they moved my due date back one week, though I am still hoping for an early January arrival!)

Baby size: 3″ – a peapod

Sickness: Unfortunately, I am still throwing up every day. I am grateful though because it was 5-6 times a day until I got a new pill called Diclegis. It is working great and now I’m *only* sick 1-2 times a day. But I have been sick since 4 weeks, so I am pretty exhausted by it all.

I was this sick with Adeline and it ended at about 16-17 weeks, so I am hoping August will be better!

Energy: I’m SOOOO tired, especially this week. I have gone to bed every day between 7-8 pm and slept until 5:30-6:30. Those who know me well know that 5:30 is late and 6:30 is REALLY late for me. The exhaustion is really cutting into my fringe hours, which is why things have been a bit quiet here on the blog. (Find me more often on Instagram and Facebook)

Cravings: I am loving fruit, especially watermelon and cantaloupe, and every time I go to Panera I get two pickles. I’m such a stereotype! I also really want avocado, but it always makes me sick.

Gender: We don’t know yet, but I suspect a girl since I have been so sick. Matthew says boy. I’m planning to take the Intelligender Gender Prediction Test Kitnext week. It was right for our other two kids, so we’ll see. And we should have our gender ultrasound in late August. (I absolutely could NOT wait. COULD. NOT.)

Thanks for all your kindness during this special season! So grateful for this community.

As someone who suffered with HG for 39 weeks you have my deepest sympathy! :( I’m glad the new medicine is helping! I’ll have to remember the name for next time I’m pregnant.
