My Pregnancy Journal - 13 weeks

Happenings of the Harper HouseholdHere we are... 13 weeks! Some people consider this the start of the 2nd trimester, how crazy is that. Only 6 months to go and then we will be a family of 5! >PAUSE< .....Take a deep breath....

Okay, I'm okay... I'm at the point to where I think I'm becoming emotional and a bit overwhelmed knowing that pretty soon there will be a new whinny baby in the house (that I will love dearly). Hubs just told me today, not sure if I'm ready... and I was like, "Too late!"

This week MOYASHI (means bean sprout in Japanese) is about the size of a medium shrimp and weighs nearly an ounce. Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries.

About me & Moyashi
Still dealing with Dysgeusia and headaches due to having no cokes!
EMOTIONAL... even when hubs gets mad at the girlies or sends them to the corner, I get choked up. I cry at those sad pet commercials too.

Weight Gain: I have been 189 for the past 3 1/2 weeks.


Food Aversions:  Bread

What made me cry this week: I saw some family photos that made me tear up and cry. I went to go lay down in bed and hug the pillow.

Medical Stuff:  I had to reschedule my endocrinologist appointment because I hadn't done my lab work yet, oops. So I have to do that next week and wake up early, ugh.

Thoughts from the family: Nothing much this week. My sister wants to know what it is already. I did feel my grandma staring at my belly, which doesn't even show that much, but other than that, no one has really "talked" about the baby.
Hubs: Mommy is irritating... he says. But like I said earlier, he's kinda nervous to have 3 kids.

Something I am excited about this week: Going to the doctor next week and want to schedule a ultrasound to find out the SEX!! Today at church we saw a family with 2 older kids and a baby. It was nice to see how helpful the big sister was holder her baby brother. Hubs reached over to touch his little hand... so cute!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
