How far along? 13 Weeks
Total weight gain? 0.8 lbs! I finally have a bump and only gained 0.8lbs?
Maternity Clothes? Luckily I have one pair of Miss Me Jeans that are a loose comfortable fit, but I did go ahead and buy this pants band thing. Its a classier alternative to the hairband, as in it doesn't leave your fly hanging open. It is made to look like an extension of your jeans. 
Stretch Marks? Nada, I had a mini panic attack thinking I might have seen one on my hip, but then I realized I had just scratched myself. HA!
Sleep: Sleeping like a ROCK! Until about 6:45ish AM when I have to get up to teedle.
Best moment this week: HEARING BABY J'S HEARTBEAT & GETTING A BUMP! I had this terrible feeling that around week 10 Baby J had stopped growing. I mean I just knew the baby stopped. We went to the doctor for a check up and they did the little fetal ultrasound thing to find the heartbeat. It took the longest 5 minutes of my life to find the heartbeat....I could hear her pass over mine and slowly hear it getting faster and faster the longer it took her. Finally she found it and I began to tear up. A healthy 160 BPM! She apologized for taking so long and said that was going to be her last run before getting the doctor since she could see my heart rate increasing. After she left Henry said he had no idea there was anything wrong, he thought my heartbeat was the baby's the whole time, until the actual baby heartbeat came up, then he knew the difference. lol No wonder he wasn't panicking.
Miss Anything? Alcohol, particularly rum. Again, don't judge people.
Movement: No movements. We can't wait for them to start though!
Food cravings: Runts! I finally found them at Walgreens.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No queasiness this week. Yea buddy!!
Gender Prediction: Baby Girl. I have such a strong feeling it is a girl! Monday on Week 14 we go into Stork Vision just to see Baby J and they said their is a chance we might find out the gender...I hope not because I need Baby J to hide it's gender parts until we get closer to the reveal party! I am terrible at surprises.
Labor Signs: Too soon
Symptoms: My skin seems to be under control! I went ahead and ordered some more Mac mineral powder, charged water moisturizer and their Prep + Prime. I am getting the "rosy" look on my cheeks without using blush and the Prep + Prime REALLY evens out the color of my skin-tone. I feel much better about myself now. 
Biggest symptom of the week: BABY BUMP!!!! I was having major bump envy and one night I was putting on my a t-shirt to sleep in, looked down and WHAM there was the bump!!! I was so excited!! I took a ton of photos and was texting my sister who I had just complained to about my non-existent bump. 
Fatigue, I am pretty sure I slept about 16 hours the other day. Slept from about 2-8, woke up and watched a movie with the Hubby, then went back to sleep until 8 the next morning.
Belly Button in or out? Innie
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy Happy!! 
Looking forward to: Decorating the nursery, finding out the gender (5 more weeks!!!), and feeling Baby J move! Oh and getting to see Baby J again week 14! We get a full 10 minutes, which includes a CD of the heartbeat, DVD of the ultrasound, and photos of course. Henry's parents will be joining us and I can't wait to see Baby J squinch his/her tiny face and squirm around. You can bet that morning I will be having some coffee, fruit juice and a box of nerds. That baby will be moving up a storm. <3
Baby Names? Still have to be Henry the 3rd for a boy. Then baby girl options: Claire, Adaleine, Annabelle, Adalena <3
Thoughts: I am happy to have baby bump now, but going to the gym I feel like I look like that girl who hasn't worked out all winter. It is still a semi-awkward baby bump. I met up with my old personal trainer today and going to begin training sessions with her again. I know they say if you stay active before pregnancy you can continue after pregnancy, but I am really paranoid. It will make me feel better to know she is guiding me through proper posture and working out. plus, our babymoon is in June and this baby is no excuse to get fat. My belly may be huge, but every other part of me needs to be toned. 
Also, I know people are being kind or have good intentions when they say, "OMG you aren't big at all! Your bump is so tiny!" It's great to know I don't look like a whale and maintaining a good shape, I guess, but I guess they don't realize I have bump envy so deep down I am thinking, Thanks punk! How about now!? Then trying to press my belly out further. HA!
