Lady Jr jumped almost an inch in length and added quite a few grams to her weight. According to the app, that means they’re about the size of a clownfish:
What even is week 13? Everything seems to indicate that 12 weeks is the end of the first trimester, but then again those same sources say 14 is when the second starts. Maybe they just skip 13 because it’s unlucky, but I’m going to go with this week being an interstitial, transitory time. So we’re not first tri, but we’re also not second: we’re 13 weeks.
That said, I’m feeling pretty 13-weeks. My symptoms are much abated, which is nice, but at the same time that means I’m worrying if everything is okay in there. Our next OB appointment is Thursday and omg, it can’t come quick enough. Between telling close family and acquiring an ergo carrier and then spending a weekend with said close family and a two month old and getting all of the baby advice, I feel like I’m hitting the jinx button pretty hard. I keep telling myself this is all normal and I still have some symptoms and anyway, no indication that anything is wrong, but Thursday will be a relief.
Remaining symptoms seem to ebb and flow. Most days I’m fine, just a little tired. Boobs are no longer sore, just big (even my mom commented on them). Digestion is slow as fuck. Nausea is now (mostly) little more than a gross feeling that goes away once I eat. Appetite hasn’t really noticeably increased yet, but I’m eating small meals every two hours. Belly bloats and unbloats throughout the day/week, but there does seem to be a permanent pudge going on. I’m still at 3 pounds total gained so far, which squeaks me in under the cut-off for first tri gain. Phew.
Also everyone keeps referring to Lady Jr as a she, so I’m going to go ahead and lay (imaginary) money down that Lady Jr is, in fact, a he. Not just to be contrary, but mostly because all three of my nieces are girls, my cousin is having a girl, and my friend has a girl. So, a boy is due. We won’t know for another month or two, but it’s fun to bet now.
