Baby Sparks #2 Bumpdate || 12 & 13 Weeks


How far along: 13 Weeks, 6 days

Due Date: March 10, 2018 <---- This has already been changed once and could very well change again. Baby is measuring almost 2 weeks ahead of schedule. Basically I'm somewhere between the beginning of 14 weeks and the middle of 15 weeks. Who knows!

Baby is the size of: a lemon! Although our big baby is measuring almost two weeks ahead of schedule and was exactly 3 inches long at my ultrasound last Monday.

Gender: Starting to feel more and more like this could be a little girl after all. We have an ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow where we will hopefully find out the sex of this little one. Pray that baby cooperates and gives us a good potty shot!

Name: I'm second guessing all our name choices right now. Maybe this kid will have a name by the time I give birth, or maybe he/she will remain nameless forever. haha

Symptoms: For the most part my energy is back and the nausea has calmed down. I have been dealing with headaches almost daily and had a pretty bad day the day we came home from the beach dealing with leg cramps, headaches, and nausea.

Weight Gain: Up 1 lb from pre-pregnancy weight.

Movement: I know it's early, but I am 99.9% sure I felt baby move over the weekend. It was quick and it was light, but I know what baby movement feels like and that was definitely it. I haven't felt anything else in a couple of days though. I am anxiously waiting for those kicks to get stronger and more consistent!

Cravings/Aversions: I've been craving a really good, fresh salad. Isn't that the weirdest craving ever?

Missing anything: Definitely missed sipping on a cold beer while laying on the beach last weekend. I bought non-alcoholic beer, but it just wasn't the same.

Sleep: Better this week, thankfully.

Mood: Pretty happy overall and maybe a little moody when these headaches hit. ;)

Maternity Clothes: I ordered a few cute Fall dresses and tops from Pink Blush Maternity last week. 

Nursery: Who knows! I'll start planning once we find out if this little nugget is a boy or a girl.

Best moment this week: Seeing our little peanut on ultrasound last Monday! It's amazing the difference a few weeks make. Baby was moving and waving and covering his/her face with that sweet little hand the whole time.

We also snuck away to the beach this past weekend for a last minute vacation. It was so much fun seeing Charlie Beth on the beach. She LOVED the ocean and playing in the sand. Every morning she woke up, ran to the balcony door and screamed "WATER!" when she saw the ocean. We definitely have a little beach baby on our hands.

Looking forward to: Fall weather and football season!

Husband is: Still determined this little babe is a boy...


  1. I'm so glad you're feeling somewhat better. I think my nausea finally stopped around week 19 but I still take the medication my doctor gave me at night for my insomnia. Are you hoping for another girl? I'm so excited to see what you're having!!

  2. Awwww look at your little bump. I saw over the weekend that its a boy!!!!! I just knew you were having a boy since both you and S have a sibling of the opposite sex and your pregnancy sounds different this time. I cant wait to hear what names you guys are kicking around. Boy names were so hard for us before we knew we were having a girl. We never actually settled on one, and then realized we didn't need to haha.
