Pregnancy Survey 13 Weeks

Wow... No post's all week. I am a loser! And it's not for lack of time unfortunately. It's honestly because I have nothing new to talk about. I could talk about looking for a job, missing my friends and family, actually liking being up here in WA (minus the friends and family part) but none of it is really new. Only thing new is baby is still growing. I had a new apt on Friday and really liked the doctor. I think that I will try to request him again. I know that he may not (or will probably not) deliver the lil monster I'm growing, but it might be nice to see a familiar and nice face every week. He was super patient with me, answered all of my questions, and actually laughed a little. I like people with a sense of humor and he has one. All good in my book!

Nothing terribly new with the babes. Doctor said I was doing perfectly and so was baby. I'm not worried if he's not worried. Baby slept thru the apt. When we were looking at him, it looked like he was cuddled up on the placenta like a pillow. It was pretty cute.

That's all that's new here! On to the survey:

Survey Time:
How far along?: A little farther than I originally thought. About 13 weeks and 5 days.
 How big is baby?: The size of a lemon. 3 inches and 1.5oz
Weight gain?: 3lbs. I am a little worried about gaining too much weight during my pregnancy and so I am happy with 3 right now. Not that this is really affecting my eating. I still eat what I want, I am just trying to make walking a priority. 
Stretch marks?: None yet
Maternity clothes?: Still regular clothes. I use a belly band with my smaller sized pants. But the low cut jeans are still fitting like a dream!
Sleep?: Perfect. I sleep like a rock. Minus the nightly pee. 
Best moment this week?: Seeing baby again. I wish J could have been there. We didn't know that he would see the baby at any appointments before my 20 weeks one and so I told him he didn't need to be there. Well, I was wrong. I think. 
Food cravings?: Wing. Only boneless though. My aversion to meet on the bone has gotten worse. And apples. Bakes apples, apple juice, dried apples, apples and peanut butter. Oh and I finally had a pickle. AMAZING. Who knew pickles tasted better while pregnant. 
Gender?: Still thinking boy, but I'm happy as a clam either way. 
Movement?: Not yet. 3 weeks probably?
Belly button?: I could see my belly button ring thru my shirt so I know my belly is sticking out a little more. But the belly button it's self is still normal. 
What I miss?: Being able to eat whatever I want and not worrying about things like lunch mean, nitrates and fish.
Labor signs?: No. Praying they stay away for a long time! 
What I'm looking forward to?: The baby moving. And 2nd trimester!
Milestone?: 2nd trimester is only a few short days away!
