I interrupt your daily beauty post for a baby update. Yay!

(I look exhausted! #nomakeupthursday?)

I feel like now all of a sudden the weeks are starting to go faster. We found out I was pregnant SO early because we were watching (yes, baby XO, Noelle was planned) so at first it felt like the days were going by SO slow. Onto other things, I've had like, no cravings. In fact, nothing seems to really tickle my fancy when it comes to eating. I actually hate eating right now. I'll think something sounds delish but when I get it I'll be like, "Ehhhhh." Anyone else do this? Also, my boobs are ridiculously huge. They have walk into the room about five minutes before I do. I feel like I'm at the awkward "Are you chubby or are you pregnant?" stage. I can't wait to rock a bump :)

How far along? 13 weeks | 5 days (I'm slacking!)
Total weight gain: One pound.
Maternity clothes? Not yet. Still sticking to baggy shirts and leggings.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Starting to finally get some sleep. I have learned the trick to not drink anything about 3 hours before I go to bed. That's been helping.
Best moment this week: Just starting to feel back to normal. Getting my energy back is always nice.
Miss Anything? Wanting to eat food.
Movement: It's too early!
Food cravings: Nadda.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Grilled chicken.
Gender: We don't know yet. We find out April 21st. Now everyone thinks it's a boy but my mom still thinks it's a girl.
Labor Signs: -------
Symptoms: --------
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Getting happy now! My mood swings were getting pretty bad. I did have one major outburst a few days ago. I had to go get a urine test because they found protein in my urine the first time. So I go to Quest, sit for a half an hour (for a pee test!) and then she calls me up. She goes, "Nicole?" My mom goes, "I think she's calling you." So I go up and say, "Did you mean Noelle?" and I looked down at the list that we had to sign in with. My name is the next one so she obviously means me. She goes, "No. Nicole." and points to my name. MY NAME THAT I PRINTED. I go, "Yeah. Noelle." and point back at my name. She goes, "Nicole." and points back. I'm like, "That says Noelle." The girl laughs and goes, "Ohhh. Noelle. Right." GUYS IT GETS WORSE. So she calls me in, gives me a cup and tells me to go to the bathroom. I look around and there's no wipes. My doctor specifically told me that if you don't use a wipe before peeing, it can cause protein to show up in the test (which is exactly what got me here in the first place because the first time I did a urine test, they didn't have any wipes). I peek my head out and see she's with another person so I wait. She goes, "What do you need?" real snotty, "Is it personal?" and I said, "No. Not really. I just need a wipe." so she goes, "Why would you need a wipe?" so I explained exactly what my doctor told me and she SCOFFS and goes, "Oh my God. It doesn't matter if you wipe before you pee. It doesn't show protein in it." and tosses the wipes at me. So now I'm shaking. Which doesn't make for peeing straight in a cup, right? Yeah, that's my excuse why I peed all over it. So I go out, put the cup in the bin and she goes, "Thanks so much Nicole." -_- I walked out but of course not before calling the lady a total bitch. Pregnancy hormones, huh? They're a doozy.
Looking forward to: Possibly finding a new doctor because all the ones associated with mine (minus mine) are incredibly rude and the chances of getting my actual doctor on D-day are slim.
