13 Weeks

My baby, how you're growing! Anywhere from 3 to 3.5 inches long, you're a little longer than my middle finger. I keep looking at my hands and trying to picture you, all the while convincing myself that you're real, and growing inside me. Your teeth are starting to form under your gums, and you already have one-of-a-kind fingerprints. You are truly a miracle.

I'm having trouble believing that we're pregnant. I seem to be losing weight, and I fell asleep on my stomach last night with no discomfort. I'm not feeling nauseated or overly tired anymore - that's a blessing! But I'm just not interested in food. I talked to my sister last night, she said this is probably what normal-weighted people feel, not obsessed about food, just simply using it as fuel. Interesting.

Yasar and I thought we'd come up with the perfect names for boy/girl, but we've revisited them this week and picked out new ones. It's sometimes hard to compromise with him, his ideas of names come from a completely different world than mine.

Other than that, things are quiet. Ultrasound next week.


  1. Congratulations on your pregnancy. Wow. How exciting...the early stages are always odd though huh?

  2. Names were the hardest for us to agree on, especially boy names. If our second one was a boy he still wouldn't have name :-)
