Pregnancy Update and WIW End of First Trimester

OH.MY.GOSH......I am done with the first trimester!! Happy Dance...Hallelujah chorus..."ahhhhhhh" sigh of relief! Now that I have done the first trimester thing 3 times, I am pretty sure I can say it is my least favorite part of pregnancy! I will be doing more pregnancy updates now that I am through the first 12 weeks. Trust me, you would have been bored to death if I had been updating you thus far. It would have looked something like this: "Still feeling queazy, my boobs are a little bigger, I am bloated but not showing yet, wish I could sleep all day, etc etc etc."
I am currently 13 weeks

Here is a brief recap of my first trimester:
What I ate- Fruit, Panera Bread French Toast Bagels, Turkey Burgers, Snicker Bars and Pepsi
Fitness- Kickboxing, Corebar, StairMaster and Spin
What is different about this pregnancy so far?
1) With Elinor I was VERY sick, with Charley I only got Migraines and this time I have both but not as bad....boy or girl!??
2) I have been feeling the baby kick since 11 weeks (maybe even sooner but I can't be sure). Last night the baby kicked so hard I could see my tummy move! I didn't feel Elinor until 20 weeks  and Charley at 18.
3) I am MUCH less focused on being pregnant this time around, mainly due to my other two children and their high demand of my attention. (no worries, I am remembering to take my prenatal Vitamins and not drink wine)
4) I have not "popped" yet! I was definitely showing by now (and not in a little way) with my second pregnancy. So I am pretty excited to be holding that off for a little bit.

And to celebrate being done with my first trimester, I would like to draw special attention to my What I Wore outfit this week and and the fact that I am still in my normal jeans!! (Don't worry, I will explode here soon, and you cuties out there will all be laughing!)

Outfit: Jeans- Kohl's Elle Brand, Tank- Kohls, Shoes, Kohls, Sweater, TJ Maxx, Cowl- Avery's Loft

I know my I look angry in this picture but I posted it anyways because I am loving my hair right now!

I am STOKED about these shoes because they are stretchy in the back and I know they will continue to fit if my feet grow during pregnancy (yes a strange side effect of pregnancy is temporary foot growth!?)

Beautiful! I'm so jealous of how you are absolutely glowing :) You look amazing. That's so crazy how early you were able to feel the baby kick!

Okay. I know a girl who is on her 3rd pregnancy and she was really big by 13 weeks. You are still small and cute! Not that big isn't cute...but she was...unweildy...or IS I should say.

aw Lord willing I will be posting pictures of me pregnant someday on my blog. Such a beautiful thing! i am not looking forward to any of the negative associations like pain, sickness, cravings... I'm just focusing on the gift I may be able to have someday. ha ha. If I focus on that stuff I might end up a married and still abstinent woman.

Totally jealous! Real jeans!
I've outgrown those now... and put on a pair of maternity jeans from LAST pregnancy that seem too tight! Argh! Must have shrunk in the wash! ;)
All the best for Trimester 2! x
