Week 13

How far along? 13 weeks 0 days, second trimester!
Weight gain/loss: I'm taking the 5th on that one.
Wardrobe? Once comfy jeans are starting to feel snug. Good ol' rubberband-through-the-button hole trick!
Stretch marks? Just the old ones.
Sleep? Meh.
Best Anna/Baby moment this week? This week I got a call from Anna's teacher (message machine) that said, "First of all congratulations. Second of all, I have a funny story to tell you." Through guesswork and asking questions, we discovered that Anna "gave birth to" a doll at school that day. Oh, boy!
Belly button in or out? Still in. It never went out with Anna, but it got pretty flat.
Movement? Nada.
Nausea: I had a couple of nasty days this week. I decided to try to stop snacking so much. I ended up vomiting instead. I guess having an empty tummy really triggers the nausea. :(
Time until graduation: 2 weeks.

Baby: Your fully formed fetus, now in about its 11th week of development, measures 2.6 to 3.1 inches from crown to rump and weighs between half an ounce and seven-tenths of an ounce -- about the size of a peach. The head is still disproportionately bigger than the body, but the rest of the body is starting to catch up. In fact, your baby is growing rapidly these days. The face is starting to look more human, with eyes moving closer together. Toes and fingers are clearly separate, and ankles and wrists have formed. External genitalia are becoming visible. Intestines are shifting into their proper place, too.

Mom-to-be: Your uterus has grown a lot. It's filling your pelvis now and starting to grow upward into your abdomen. It probably feels like a soft, smooth ball. If you haven't put on any weight yet because of morning sickness, you'll begin to now as you start to feel better.
