My Pregnancy : 13 weeks

How far along: 13 weeks 
Total weight gain: 3.5 lbs. 
Maternity clothes: Not yet, but I'd love to get some cute maternity jeans and fall pants soon! I've been trying to make my pre-pregnancy jeans last, thanks to belly bands and hair ties, but it won't work as well much longer. 
Stretch marks: Nope! I didn't get them with Landon, so hoping I don't see any this pregnancy either! 
Sleep: I've been restless and waking up on my back more. My pregnancy pillow is supposed to help prevent me from turning onto my back, but I keep doing it. Whenever I sleep on my back I turn my neck to the side in a weird way, which often means I wake up with a headache. Trying to figure out a solution! 
Pregnancy symptoms: I had the best week I've had so far this pregnancy, with minimal symptoms. I only threw up once, and was much less nauseous. I had a couple headaches, but they weren't too bad. I also had some low back pain, but it was pretty mild. So grateful for some relief from feeling miserable everyday! I'm hoping this good stretch means I'm on the upward slope to feeling better! I was able to do so much more with Landon, and I know we could both tell a difference in how mommy felt. :) 
Best moment of this week: Feeling better and having more energy! Also, my hubby and I celebrated 6 years of marriage and were able to go on a date (college football game and sushi). 
Miss anything: Not this week! Unless climbing the stairs without feeling winded counts.. 
Movement: Nope, but I'm so looking forward to it! I felt something that felt just like a baby moving, but it was too high to be the baby yet. It was fun though, because it reminded me of the excitement of feeling those first flutters! 
Food cravings/aversions: I'm not as picky right now, so I've been able to eat more. Trying to make healthy decisions, but I've had a little bit more of a sweet tooth this week. As long as I don't keep sweets in the house I do ok! I have to REALLY want something to go drive somewhere for a craving. Last week I wanted chips and dip so badly I asked my husband to drive to the store at 9pm to get them for me,and he did. Yum. :) 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not this week! 
Have you started to show yet: Yes, growing away! 
Gender prediction: No idea. I don't have a feeling one way or the other yet, regarding if Baby is a boy or girl. Happy with either! 
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy 
Looking forward to: Feeling the baby move for the first time! I wonder if it'll happen sooner than with Landon. My placenta was in front with him, so it took a little longer to feel his movements. 

Upcoming appointments/events: We're traveling to San Diego this week for my friend's wedding. I'm the Matron of Honor and Landon is a ringbearer, so I'm looking forward to seeing her get married and being around some dear friends from college. 

Weekly Wisdom/Quote: "Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear."

Milestones: Not being as picky or revolted by most foods. I'm finally about to enjoy more variety again.
