The New Year is here!

Well...not a whole lot has changed since my last update on here. Still feeling woozy at times and can't eat a whole lot (some days are better than others). But, this should be letting up very soon. (I hope)
We got to hear our little gummi bears heartbeat at our last appointment, but Alex could hear it better than I could since he was right down by my tummy. Hopefully I will be able to hear it better at our next doctor's visit...the visit after that we get to find out if it is a baby boy or girl! :) I don't have any feelings as to what our little munchkin is, which surprises me because I thought I would. But, I am soooo ready to find out if we get to buy pink or blue :)

•How far along?: 13 weeks
•Total weight gain: 2 lbs...I still haven't been able to eat much
•How big is baby?: About the size of a peach
•Maternity clothes?: Starting to need the maternity jeans...shirts are still way to big, but I'm sure I will grow into them.
•Stretch marks?: Not yet
•Sleep?: Sleeping is good...but I definitely have to get up to pee more often than before
•Best moment this week?: Possibly feeling the baby move :)
•Movement?: Well...I know it is supposed to be to early, but I drank a glass of orange juice and was laying on my side when I felt a little flutter, like a butterfly bouncing in my lower abdominal area. I told myself it wasn't the baby, and then realized I had the glass of juice and have read that can really make the baby very active. I looked this up some on the internet and have read that it is possible. Since this is my first pregnancy and I don't know what the movement feels like just yet. I guess I will know in a few more weeks when he or she does really start to move, I will let you know if it is the same feeling ;)
•Food cravings?: Fruit, especially pineapple and strawberries
•Belly button in or out?: in
•What I miss: Being able to eat whatever I wanted
•What I'm looking forward to: Finding out whether it is a boy or a girl in 7 weeks :)
