13 week update

Holy cow we are at 13 weeks. That's nuts to me. Many sources site this as the beginning of the second trimester. Ill take it. I can feel my uterus growing. Overall I can feel my energy slowly returning and nausea becoming mostly less and less. Pop that used to help it now seems if I have too much it makes it worse. I've had a couple days of gas and stomach pains. It's constipation. It happens rarely but I'd say about 5 times every pregnancy. Maybe a little more with Leiland. Nothing I can't handle. I have this slight bit of nesting. I think. It's just from the little more energy I've been feeling. My boobs still kill. Especially my nipples. I'm also noticing its starting to hurt to lay on my belly. Boo that's all that's comfy. Or least used to be. 

I used my Doppler a couple days ago to hear the hb. I love that I can do that whenever I want. Took me a minute to find it but it was there. According to my app the baby is the size of a tangerine (2.5-3") and is growing now at the rate of an inch per week. That's just so amazing. Hopefully I can feel this baby kick soon. I'm assuming in a month or so. 

We miss Tim terribly right now. I'm still having a tough time falling asleep even when my eyes burn to keep open. It's really hard. I have crazy dreams when I get good sleep though. And I've had at least three that I remember where I gave birth to a boy. Not once have I had a dream this baby was a girl. Never know though. 

I should know gender in two weeks though. But my lips are sealed till I can tell Tim. 

I think that's it for now. Nothing too important. 

Oh and weight has steadied off about 178.
