Dear Future Baby – 13 weeks

13 weeks pregnant

How far along: 13 weeks

Gender guess: I still think it’s gonna be a boy!

How I’m feeling: I have been less queasy, but when I look at uncooked meat I do want to hurl. I am also getting food aversions like I had with McKenna (meat mostly). Almost all food sounds disgusting. I’ve also been super exhausted – except for one day where I got a ton done around the house. Then the next day I was back to blah.

Highlight this week: I had one day in the last two weeks where I felt energized and was able to get some things crossed off my list. That. Was. Amazing.

Miss anything: This week we hosted a couple for dinner and I watched 3 adults down 3 bottles of wine while I drank an Italian Soda… so wine.

Movement: None yet.

Cravings: Pizza rolls. I watched an episode of Scrubs where Turk had some and that’s all I wanted after that. To be fair, nothing else sounded good.

Looking forward to: It feels like this pregnancy is taking forever, so I’ve already started planning the gender reveal party and I’m super excited for that even though it won’t be until September!

What Brandon says about the baby: Brandon says he’s tired already, lol!

What McKenna says about the baby: McKenna is still obsessed with the heartbeat and wants to tell everyone she sees about it.



Dear future baby,

We are so SO excited for you to be here. Your daddy and I are already starting the good fight over names, and we don’t even know if you are a boy or a girl yet! I personally think you are a boy, and he thinks you are a girl. I refuse to fight over girls names yet because he is SO ridiculous about girls names. Don’t worry, whether you are a boy or a girl I won’t let you get stuck with an awful name 🙂

I’m already scheming the gender reveal party, and we are so thrilled to find out whether you will be a boy or a girl. We don’t really care which you are; we just want to start planning.

McKenna is also super eager to hold you already. She begs to hold our friends’ newborn twins all the time and when we say “no” or “not right now” she looks at my tummy and says “but I get to hold MY baby!” I’m already gearing up for that fun…

So! Be good in my tummy please!

Love, your future Mama
