1/3 way there!

Yesterday we hit 13 wks and therefore have completed the first trimester! Yay!

For two people who wanted this so bad, it sure does seem surreal still.

Still doing ok, I suppose. I don't know any different, but I'm feeling ok only sick here and there and still cramping which scares the Hell out of me, but I see the doc on Thursday so I'm sure he'll tell me if something's wrong. I can't cough or sneeze without thinking my insides have ruptured. That's an odd feeling, let me tell you.

I know now that the baby doesn't like apples or fish. I had cod the other night for dinner and promptly saw it again the next morning. Yuck.

My appetite has decreased and is back to normal, and something I didn't expect happened:


My once tiny size 7 foot has morphed into a size 8 1/2! I heard that this was normal, but good grief, they are going to need their own zip code and post office soon. The crap about it is that I spent 23 years of my life perfecting my shoe collection to have it destroyed in 3 months.

Crazy things happen when you're pregnant. Especially the dreams/nightmares I've been having lately. In the past week, I've dreamt about another man-yes that way- helped a little girl with frostbitten black fingers, and watched a car explode. With people inside. These dreams do not make for pleasant nightime slumber! They scare the crap out of me and I more than not wake Aaron up to walk me to the bathroom because I'm freaked the heck out.
So the dreams can stop anytime, thank you very much.

Ok, I'm off to feed the baby frosted Chex, toast, and an orange. Mmmm, yummy fruit...
Have a great week!

    I hope your feet return to their original size!! My feet are shrinking (!!!) and I'm down to an 8 1/2 from a 9, so I have to re-buy a lot of my shoes.

    Congrats on completing the first tri-mester. That has to be so exciting!!

    so glad to read that everything is going smoothly with you and baby! i never knew pregnant women's feet grew!! that's crazy! I wear a size 8-1/2...too bad we don't live closer cause I'd let you borrow some of my shoes. :)

    Holy crap. I hope my feet don't grow..I am already a size 10! Talk about needing zip code! Crap!!

    I am 8 weeks behind yah! Pretty cool :O)
    You know..as soon as I went out and finally bought a Basal thermometer, and a box of tampons ( the BIG box )..I missed my period.. LOL. Figures.

    I am glad to have another blogger though who is close in this (as far as timing..) that I can bug with questions. !!

    Congrats on #13!

    Gah, I already wear a size 11 - if my feet grow when I have kids I'll never find shoes to fit!

    lol, i went from a size 9-9 1/2 to a 10-11. at least they both grew -- there are even instances with women when only ONE foot grows - now that would be strange!

    I am so glad that things are going so well for you, besides the weird dreams. I know how that goes! Love the baby updates.

    I am due in April, and I know I was so happy to get that first trimester behind me. The second one is so much better, believe me!

    Okay, a) I already wear an 11 or 12, so if my feet grow when I'm pregnant, I'll be condemned to a life of men's or transvestite shoes! B) I already have crazy dreams like that (possibly from sleep apnea), so I feel for you and hope by now they've stopped!
