13 Weeks Picture!

So I really need to get my act together and figure some things out. Its been bothering me since my appointment on Monday as to what day I should "call" myself 13 weeks. My regular OB would say that yesterday I was 13 weeks. My Specialist would say that I was 13 weeks on Monday. This is completely stupid but I'm a numbers girl. That and the fact that as quickly as I can move this pregnancy along I'd like to!

As each day goes by, I can cross off yet another day until I reach the next milestone. For me that's hitting the next week of pregnancy with out any funny scares. The thought that I could hit the next milestone 4 days earlier is music to my ears! I would love to say that this coming Monday I'll be 14 weeks and not just 13-1/2. I don't want to cheat but I just can't help myself! What would you do??

Even though I was "13 weeks" on Monday I waited to take my picture until this morning. I didn't want to have 2 pictures where it looked as if I hadn't gotten any bigger because I took them too close together. Eventually I'll have to get this all figured out in my head so I can do the right post, with the right picture, on the right day or it will just end up driving me nuts!!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 13weeks!

Size of Baby: About 3-3/4" long and according to our doctor they estimate already 2 ounces! He or She is   the size of a peach!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I totally had plans to completely avoid this question but now maybe it will make me think more often about what I eat and how much! To be honest I had lost 5 pounds and then gained 9. So I am saying only 4 pounds so far! HA!

Maternity Clothes: A mixture of both. On the bottoms I am completely into only maternity pants, shorts, skirts etc. but, on top I can still wear both maternity and non-maternity.

Gender: We don't know yet! I'm hoping the ultrasound tech is super sweet at our 16 week checkup and will try and look then! This whole past ultrasound at 12 weeks she called it a "he" the whole time. We laughed about it and said that she was probably right! I've also had some other early guesses (Tristan :)) who say that its a boy also.

Movement: Yes! I felt this baby (and the rest of my kiddos) super early. Right at the beginning of 12weeks I notice that distinct early baby bubbles/flutter. I can't wait for more!

Sleep: Hit or Miss at this point. The nights that I wake up at 2 am to go to the bathroom I always find that I can't go back to sleep until 4 or 5. I hate this! Other nights I sleep like the dead and wake up feeling soo good!

What I miss: So far the only thing I miss is coffee and sleeping on my stomach!

Cravings: Jalapenos! I woke up this morning and already told Bobby that we were heading out for some Friday night Mexican food dinner!
Symptoms: The morning (all day) sickness is finally gone and I'm starting to get soo much more energy back the closer I get to the 2nd Trimester (next week WHOOP!)

Best Moment This Week: Seeing how great the baby was doing at the ultrasound! We are soo in love already its ridiculous!

Happy Friday everyone!

They were able to correctly guess the genders of my twins at our 14 week scan. She was 100% sure of Baby A and guessed correctly with B :)
