13th Week Update

I found this on one of the blogs that I follow and decided to "steal" the idea and add some of my own categories:

How Far Along: 13 weeks and 4 days

Next Big Appt/Milestone: Level II Ultrasound/Nuchal Screening tomorrow

Weight Gain: a few pounds since starting treatments 2+ years ago but no weight gain since BFP

Physical symptoms: still nauseated but less than before; always hungry but unable to find food that sounds appealing; trouble sleeping but was never a good sleeper

Cravings: Anything with fake cheese flavor--like Pirate's Booty; Applesauce; pasta

Food Aversions: Meat and chicken; yogurt; ice cream; vegetables

Maternity Clothes: I bought my first pair of maternity Citizens of Humanity jeans. I plan to live in them the next few months as my current jeans are all getting too tight. Otherwise, struggling to keep my secret at work by wearing clothes that are comfortable but not super loose.

Exercise: None other than the occasional walk with a friend

Gender: Not finding out...at least that's the plan for now, no promises

Who I've told: My parents; Max's brother and his wife; our priest; a few friends that have also struggled with infertility; random people I don't know like the lady at the maternity shop, the lady coming to measure for curtains, etc.

Who we'll tell next: Max's parents next time we see them; my boss if all goes well tomorrow; all other friends; and, last but not least: my sister at Thanksgiving

How many people have asked me if I'm pregnant: 1, and I changed the subject

Number of belly stares I get each day: about 100

Emotions: Still scared but a little less anxious with each week that passes

How Max is doing: Seems to be doing great--rubs my belly a lot and talks about Pepita constantly; jokes about how he'll be sleeping in the new guest house one the crying baby arrives
