13 weeks

Time seems to be flying by with this sweet pregnancy. Baby Doss 2.0 is growing and is the size of a sweet GA peach this week! 

How far along? 13 weeks today! Now I am officially into the 2nd trimester which is crazy...I feel like even though the 1st trimester was awful symptoms wise, it went so fast!

Total weight gain:  2 lbs, but it feels like 20! 

Maternity clothes? I've used the BeBand a couple of times, but I haven't dug into the maternity clothes in storage yet. 

Stretch marks? Nope

Sleep: I could sleep a lot! On Saturday night I got in bed at 9:22 which is not typical for me! I normally try to get in bed around 10 pm and doze off a bit after that. I wake up several times through the night to drink water or get Vann back to sleep if he wakes up and needs me. 

Best moment this week: On Sunday, Vann started rubbing my tummy while we were sitting on the couch. He leaned in and started whispering to the baby. Then looked at me and smiled! 
We also shared our news with all of our family and friends! Check out our announcement below:

Miss anything? Not really, well except for a few of my favorite AdvoCare products and my 2nd Spark of the day. Here's what I do take

Movement: No.

Food cravings: Nothing too off the wall in terms of cravings. I have made 3 batches of Pumpkin Bread (my Nannie's recipe) in the past 3 weeks. 2 weeks ago I started craving Olive Garden salad. We got a bowl to go after one of the UGA games and they send you home with a bottle of their dressing. That bottle lasted until today, so I found a copycat recipe and it's awesome! I do use spinach lettuce instead of the iceberg lettuce. I toss in olives, parmesan, tomatoes, pepperoncinis, and croutons. YUM! 

Anything making you queasy or sick: I feel so much better than I did the past month or so. Some smells really hit me...Lyla's dog food is one I could go without smelling! 

Gender: I am just praying for a healthy baby, but lots of friends say girl. Vann tells people he wants a sister. We shall see in about a month.   

Labor signs: Nope.

Symptoms: Bloating, low energy, and I feel so moody.  

Belly button in or out? In!

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Errr a bit of both!  My emotions & hormones have been all over the place lately!  I hate feeling grumpy and it seems this week I've been feeling that way a lot. Sorry family! 

Looking forward to: Finding out the gender (hopefully in 2-3 more weeks).  We can't wait :)

Sweet baby Doss, we are praying for you, excited for you, and happy that you are a part of our family. We praise God for the miracle of you!
