I have finally made it to the last week of my first trimester and it feels amazing! We had our second midwife appointment on Wednesday which involved a head-to-toe physical and we got to hear the babies very strong heart beat for the very first time. It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait for our next appointment.
So what’s going on this week:
your baby at 13 weeks
Can you believe she’s forming vocal cords and teeth?!
And even though she’s still teeny, she already has fingerprints.
Her intestines are moving from the umbilical cord to their more permanent place, in her tummy.
I am more calm. Since becoming pregnant I have worked hard at being more relaxed, calm and less of a worrier. I know that worrying and stressing about things is bad for me and the baby and I finally feel like I have successfully achieved my desired peaceful state of being.
How I’m Feeling
I am feeling really good, I finally have more energy and no morning sickness and it’s amazing. I still have so fatigue and I can’t go at the same pace that I once did but I am feeling the best I have in the last 13 weeks. I am also feeling hungry more often and find myself eating 5-6 small meals per day. I no longer can sit down to my regular sized meal, I am full after about half of it but I am hungry again 2 hours later. I also have been experiencing extreme hunger pains that come out of nowhere. One minute I am fine and the next I am HANGRY, so I try to keep healthy snacks on me at all times for moments like this.
What I’m Eating
This week I have been back to eating salads, I have actually been craving them. I also have been enjoying hot sauce….on everything. I am currently addicted to sriracha and I want to put it on everything from hummus to wraps to pasta. I am so happy to finally have more normal appetite back and I am looking forward to whipping up more fun recipes at home in the coming weeks.
