Itty Bitty v2.0-- 13 weeks

Most people who read this will already know the news... but we have itty bitty v2.0 on the way! Here is how we announced it (earlier than planned because it was too hard to hide anymore thanks to the growing belly).


I think it turned out rather cute.

I realize I am still almost 2 years behind on updating about Payton's life... and my exhaustion is not making it easy to continue to update, but I am making it my goal to get somewhat caught up before this baby comes.

We are officially 13 weeks today and here are the updates...

Date: May 27, 2015
How far along: 13 weeks
Weight gain: My Dr. says 4 pounds. Which is better than I expected. I'll take it!
Sleep: Awful- I wake up 2-4 times a night anywhere between 2am and 4am. Sometimes I end up staying awake at about 4:30 and that makes for long days.
Best moment of the week: We are starting to come around to some names we both like. It has been rather difficult this time around. And of course finally hearing the heart beat. That first time always settles just a little bit of my nerves.
Movement: Nothing yet
Food cravings: Oranges, cherries, fruit in general I guess
Food aversions: Hamburger meat... can't eat burgers, can't eat tacos. I just looked back at my posts from Payton and saw that at one point she didn't like tacos either.
Gender: I honestly have no guesses at this point. Payton thinks it is a girl boy. (She changes her mind hourly.)
Maternity clothes: Yep. I gave up on regular pants. I need to be comfortable and I just wasn't in regular pants. Shirts I have some maternity that I am wearing and some that aren't. But I am mostly wearing maxi skirts and dresses which are not maternity and I will probably live in all summer.
Symptoms: EXHAUSTED always. And I get pretty sick most nights. Like useless. Hopefully that will start to get better soon.
What I miss: Normal sleep.
What I'm looking forward to: The end of the school year. I know this may not seem pregnancy related but believe me- it is. Teachers are tired at the end of the year even if they AREN'T pregnant. I am hoping that by the end of June I will gain some energy.
Weekly Wisdom: I don't have much wisdom this week.
Milestones: We are almost to the 2nd trimester. Payton is excited to become a big sister.





This week, the baby is the size of a peach. However, I feel like the size of a honeydew or other small melon. I feel huge! And it gets worse by the end of the day. I wake up in the morning and think, "hey, this isn't so bad, you don't look huge today..." and by the afternoon it's like "whoa hey whatcha got in there?!"


For proof, here is a morning and afternoon picture from last week...
