Catching Up: 13/14 Weeks

Written June 23, 2014

Baby Pep,

Mama couldn't get her act together to post two separate weeks, so 13/14 weeks will have to do. We made it- we're in the second trimester, baby! It's such a relief to know that you're pretty much safe and sound in there now. You've been so easy on me, that sometimes I have this surreal moment where I totally forget that you're real. I have to remind myself that I really did hear your heartbeat at 9 weeks and you are in fact, a living, moving, growing little person inside my belly.

Now that the second trimester is upon us, I've made more of an effort to get off the couch and start workin' on ma fitness! I want both of us to be healthy, wee one, so I've been taking you on long walks on the local bike trails and even took you for a short jog on the nearby college track. I didn't know if I'd feel up to running at all since I've effectively sat on my butt since my race almost two months ago, but I ran a full mile and walked about two so I think it's safe to say, we can do this!

My pregnancy app tells me that you're the size of a cupcake, but you'd never know it by looking at me! I can't wait for you to start making your appearance known because right now, I just look bloated! Anywho, I'll write again soon, little one.


Don't be deceived- it's still just bloat!


  1. that is so cute! it's fun to see you getting more excited as things sink in. do y'all want to find out hte gender or are you going to wait?

  2. Oooh look at the little bump making an appearance! I'm so excited for you :)

  3. I love that you're doing these picture progressions! Such a great idea. Might have to copy you with the next babe :)
