13 Weeks

How far along? 13 Weeks 2 day
Total weight gain: 8lbs.  Good. Grief.   My defense is that it is ALL in the chest.  They've doubled in size- and still hurt like a mother.  (Pre-pregnancy weight: 110lbs-112lbs.)
Maternity clothes? Not totally, just yet, but in the near future thats for sure.  With two babies growing in there, my belly popped early. I went and got some staple maternity clothes, and looking forward to wearing a whole lotta leggings!
Stretch marks? None yet!
Sleep: Not terrible this week, I'm still so sleepy, but naps aren't everyday.  Getting up at least once or twice, and up to 6 times a night to pee!  I'm pretty much over that..
Best moment this week: Getting to finally see this baby bump show- and my goodness it is there!  I've just felt really 'frumpy' rather than pregnant.
Miss Anything? Sleeping comfortably on my tummy.  I'm a stomach sleeper.
Movement: Nothing yet- but I'm sure that feeling the flutters aren't too far off! 
Food cravings: Dry cereal at night before bed- while watching Friends on NickAtNite.  Not sure where this habit came from, but diggin' my Cherrios.  FRUIT- doesn't matter what kind it is.  I came home from the store this week with mangos, strawberries, peaches, grapes, bing cherries, pineapple, apples, bananas... Oh, and Kraft Singles.  I've never bought them in my life, until this week.  Cheetos and blue blox macaroni are also on my list of desires.  It must be the processed cheese.. the dietitian wants processed cheese.. interesting.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Half of the time it is meat- chicken in particular. Needless to say, we've been eating a lot of vegetarian!  And leftovers, can't really do them- which is so sad because I've always been the leftover queen!  It works out so well when J is at the fire station and I don't have to cook- but, the smell of reheating them does me in.
Gender prediction: We find out SOOO soon!  Jordan is rooting for 2 boys.  I've decided I know there is (or have a feeling)  AT LEAST one boy is in there.. I've heard from multiple friends and family there are two boys in there, my girlfriend, Taylor, told me I'm having two girls, and then sweet Jennifer told me there is a boy and girl in there. 

Labor Signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Never.  Well, I take that back- never the typical symptoms.  Never been sick, ever- thank goodness.  But this week I've been getting dizzy and having headaches (all normal according to my reading), and the most annoying congestion ever.  A humidifier is in my future. 
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy & EXCITED- it all is still so unreal.  The past 13 weeks have FLOWN by.  I have loved every minute of being pregnant.  Everyone keeps telling me/us 'One and done'  and I'm like- well, I kinda sort LOVE being preggo- so maybe not done, yet!
Looking forward to: Learning the sex of our babies!! :)

I found you off of pinterest and have enjoyed reading your blog about you life and events. I was wondering if you got pregnant with twins naturally or with fertility drugs?
