13 Weeks!

Dear Baby Brooks,

You are 13 weeks old now! You are just about the size of a peach and are (according to the latest ultrasound) just about 6.75 cm and weigh about an ounce.  You now have your very own set of tiny fingerprints!  Here are the little details of the week...

How Far Along?  Thirteen Weeks...189 days to go!

Weight Gain?  I'm finally up about 1.5 pounds.

Sleep?  Sleep is still pretty great.  I may be getting close to the point where I might invest in a body pillow to start practicing sleeping on my side.  I am a belly sleeper and it's going to be a pretty difficult transition to make!

Miss Anything?  Not too much really...just my jeans.  :-)

Movement? Not that I can feel, but the ultrasound said otherwise!

Food Cravings?  Still into salty foods and carbs.  Better get a handle on that.

Any Aversions?  I'm getting to the point where things are starting to sound a little better to me.  I had a fish sandwich from Wendy's today that was actually pretty good.  I still don't want chicken and eggs sound kind of terrible.  Nothing (knock on wood) has made me actually sick yet, so it's definitely all in my head!

Gender?  We have a little feeling!!  :-)

Symptoms?  Feeling great!  I have been having very vivid dreams though!  They are the kind of dreams where I can wake up, take a potty break, fall back asleep, and pick up right where I left off.

Best Moment this Week?  Seeing the ultrasound again!  Watching you jump around like crazy was so fun and your Daddy and I were grinning from ear to ear!  It was also pretty awesome to get a little unexpected hint as to whether you are a boy or a girl!  We'll see if the prediction holds up in another month or so.

Looking Forward To...  Finally telling people!!  Tomorrow (Monday, 2/27) we'll tell our managers at work, send out an email to our close friends and family, finally give our parents and siblings permission to tell, and then blast it out on Facebook to the rest of the world!!  Can't wait!  I don't know that I've ever had to keep a good secret this long!  It's been so tough!!  Can't wait to share our wonderful news with all the people we love.

Buddy wanted to get in on this too.  :-)
