13 weeks omg.
i’m 13 weeks today. I look pregnant tummy wise but it’s just some incredible bloating like omg are you carrying twins type of bloating. It’s annoying because all my clothes are high waisted so nothing fits, really. I can’t do muumuus either, it’s winter-ish at the moment and it’ll get cold real soon.
Other than that I doubt I’ve even gain weight besides what I’d lost earlier, which is good because ya girl is already thicc, baby can just dig into my fat reserves and give me a chance to be slender lol. I’m not really nauseous anymore but I only want to eat sour things, green vegetables, and pasta. I’ve stopped the junk food and I haven’t had coffee in a week. I did have one energy drink that I diluted and drunk over two days because the house has been so gross lately, I just needed a kick to clean up the house so I can spend the rest of this week working on orders etc. I’m gonna resume the coffee tomorrow though, I just need it, otherwise, I sleep all the time and I can’t do that anymore.
I obviously haven’t started feeling the baby move around but I do feel a lot of cramping in my pelvic area. I poke my tummy every now and then to say hi, and I try to talk to her about the stuff we’ll have to do for the day, food, fabrics, etc. I can’t wait for the scans etc. I just want to see what’s in there lol
I’m really hoping for a little girl, that’d make me most happy I think but either way it’s such a blessing, alhamdulillah. For second names I’ve settle on Julia for a girl and my dad’s name for a boy. They’ll probably have 3 names, one first name, a name from my family and a South African name. That’s already less names than me. I wanted to do 4 names (adding a Congolese or Ivorian name) but it feels so extra. I mean, it’s on brand, but still.
I’ve bought no baby related item yet because I need a proper list and plan to go about it, I don’t want to waste stuff or get carried away. I’ve been cleaning the house lately and throwing away all the silly, useless stuff I’ve spent money on makes me see I don’t need more money as much as I need better judgment and I’m trying to make sure Baby J/E comes into a thrifty and wisely managed home, in shaa Allah. I’ve just been having a lot of thoughts on all of that lately but I’ll stop here for now. I need a baby journal.
If you read this whole thing, thanks for being a star and keep me in your prayers!!
