13 Weeks

So I am officially 13 weeks and this is officially the first post of many weekly posts to come. At 13 weeks, the baby is about the size of a medium shrimp... about 3 inches and weighs almost an ounce. I am SO close to the 2nd trimester! Although I like to say I am in the 2nd, most people say it's not really until 13w4d when you're really in the next tri. My iPhone app has said I'm in the 2nd tri since I hit 12 weeks though, so that was kinda exciting to see when I loaded up my phone.

In other news, I have officially scheduled the BIG ULTRASOUND!! Yay! It's November 20th at 9:15 am. I can HARDLY wait!! We are super excited. I'm gonna post a poll and y'all can cast your votes for what you think Baby N is. I honestly have no idea and can't wait to find out so we can start shopping and planning and pinning down names. Although, I know we have plenty of time to do these things, it just makes it feel so much more real.

Here's this morning's 13 week shot:
That's first thing in the morning when I'm at my best. Get some food in that belly and the thing doubles... so weird! Even though that little baby is the size of a shrimp, having a uterus that's bigger than a grapefruit has got to count for something!

Welp, that's it for now! Short and sweet and more frequent... I promise!

Now take the poll... boy or girl?? -->


  1. yea!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is Devin.....

    Yea for a little bambino!!!

  2. I'm voting girl, but only because that seems to be the trend in the Nielson family.

    Yay! So excited for you guys!

  3. Totally agreeing with Laura...I think, besides Jeylin, all the boys are being saved up for Jodi :) Although, Sam has the tendency to always be different than his brothers so, he could break the trend :)

  4. Boy for sure! 8 out of 11 grandkids on the Christensen side are boys! But, little girls are so much fun! Either way you guys are gonna love being parents :)

  5. I voted girl because I know Sam. He has always told me that he's wanted a little girl to play dress up with and have tea parties. Well Sam I hope your wish comes true! :)

  6. YAY!!!!! We are soooo excited and happy for you! Can't wait to see the change in your belly! You're going to be an adorable mamasita! Congrats and we can't wait to see you guys soon! We either need to go down, or you need to come up! Miss you guys!

  7. congratulations buddy! i've been wondering when there was going to be a little amy jr. running around. good luck with everything. we're crossing our fingers here that the little dude keeps getting bigger in there!

  8. Korry & I cannot seem to agree on the gender of your baby.. I think Its a BOY! Korry thinks its a GIRL.. HAHA

  9. Such an exciting time, and YES, the time crawls by, but once you start feeling her/him it is so much more fun!

    My vote is a girl.
