Walking in the Lord's Grace day by day....


13-14 Weeks

How big is baby: Around the size of a Lemon | 13 weeks | Around the size of a Orange | 14 weeks
How I'm feeling: My energy has returned as the weather here has gotten freezing! It's been a little nuts even going anywhere to run errands. Really wishing I could get outside to walk or run.
Weight gain/loss: 2.5 (my boobs feeling huge lately, hoping more belly pop than these ladies, they need to calm down a bit)
Stretch marks: None yet.
Sleep: Pretty good still. Had caffeine for the first time since I have been pregnant yesterday and I was up close to 1am because I couldn't sleep. No more caffeine for this lady!!!
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Chewy meat is still a big no no. That was the toughest over Christmas/New Years. Other than that these couple of weeks I have definitely had WAY too many GF products too often. Eating Sugar free for most of 2013, I had completely cut these out, but since I have been pregnant a piece of bread or GF noodles have been great here and there. These last two weeks I have definitely had more of them and I just feel bloated from them. Also, NYE week I just didn't eat that well, more "cheats" that I normally would.
Movement: None. I can't wait for this. It's so weird to be at a stage where I don't "feel" pregnant.  I am super grateful to be feeling well as I know many that are sick all the way through.
What I'm loving: Matt being home for 2 days due to -40 wind chill outside. Which is a catch 22 also, today was supposed to be my first day of 2014 back to routine. Yet, all I want to do is cuddle, watch movies and stay warm.
Symptoms: Trouble with the #2, dull aches in lower abdomen
What I'm looking forward to: Getting into a routine especially at the gym. Even if it's just walk/running and aqua classes. I need it. Also, rolling out some new business ideas this week or next.
Hard parts of the week: I kept putting off the weekly photo, as I haven't gotten really ready in a long time! It's hard to follow a full hair and make up photo with the no makeup and pj hair :) I am feeling a bit discouraged about my body this week, just because I haven't gotten to the gym more than 2 times in the last two weeks. I am so grateful for my growing belly, but I just need to make sure to keep moving and watch GF and high starchy foods.
Best moment of the week: We met with a doula this last week at one of my favorite breakfast restaurants French Meadow Bakery! I felt super open and confident with her. Matt liked her too. It was fun to "plan" a little bit more. Also, this week my brain really started in the nursery planning. I can't wait to have my talented friend Anne to come by and give us some space ideas!!!
Verse that I am clinging to: Reading John 1. It's just a set of my favorite verses.

John 1:9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 

I just LOVE how John talks about light and darkness, as a photographer it just makes SO much sense to me and it's just so wonderful how basic it is! Jesus CAME to save us from our darkness. 

I had to do one with out the shirt, since I am guessing mid summer I will be sleeveless. Good to have a arm baseline :)

  1. Gina, you look radiant and beautiful (like always!). I am so so happy for you and Matt. I can't wait to keep reading about your pregnancy journey (and afterward!!). I would love to know where that tank top is from? Is it maternity? It looks so comfortable!
