Goodbye first trimester!

So I hit 13 weeks yesterday, and so far I've felt pretty darn good. Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself by saying that! lol

My only complaints so far:
1. I've been extremely tired.
2. Baby Tucker was sitting on my sciatic nerve for a few weeks straight, and still hits it occasionally.
3. My lower back has hurt the whole time.

Now I'm starting to feel increasingly uncomfortable at night. I'm feeling more and more pressure that wakes me up at night, especially when I roll over (which I now know I do frequently. I never noticed it when I slept through the turns. lol) But hubby is taking good care of me. He'll always do his best to make me feel better. Gosh, I love him!

Oh, and I've been having some crazy dreams, which I heard is common with pregnancy, but still. They're weird. I keep having bad dreams about animals that wouldn't normally scare me. A couple weeks ago I had a dream that I was walking through the woods and pythons were "jumping" out of the trees and landing on me. I'm not afraid of them while I'm awake, and they're not the most aggressive type of snake in the world, so I don't know why the dream would freak me out so much. lol

Last night I had a dream that there was a desert turtle in our house (it had spikes all over it and two appendages that sliced at you like knives) and I kept trying to get away from it, but it was really fast and every time I tried to get up on a table or something, it would jump up there. I kept trying to scream for Tucker to help me, but nothing would come out. He was busy playing video games and he couldn't hear me. lol These dreams are so bizzare.

Last night we went out to dinner with our friends Rob & Danielle, and it was really nice. I haven't seen them in over a year, and I missed them. Hopefully we can go out more often. They're talking about starting a family, so maybe Danielle will get knocked up soon so we can be pregnant together! (This is what we discussed while our men were talking about fighting and other video games that me and Danielle don't care for.)

I have my NT scan on Monday with Dr. Clark's office (they delivered Lexie's younger siblings and Lexie's son). I'm pretty excited, because it means I can make sure my lil man is ok, and maybe I can get some new pictures!

Hello second trimester!
