Happy 2nd Trimester

Now that I'm officially in the 2nd trimester, figured I'd bring back this fun little pregnancy questionnaire thing I did throughout my pregnancy with Miss A.  Also, was wondering if any of you have tried any old wives tales to find out the gender, and if so was it correct?  I've looked on the chinese calendar, but it's my birthday month, so it has opposite answers.  I did the ring test over the weekend and it said boy.  I've also been reading about the baking soda test, this is totally *new* to me, but seems extremely strange to do.


Pregnancy Review: 
How far along: 13 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: Down 10 lbs from the day I got the BFP, aka Big FAT Positive

Maternity clothes?: Even though I've lost weight, regular pants are not comfy.  So, I've started to wear some maternity bottoms, or I do the hair tie closure, but mostly if I have no where to go and no one coming over - I live in sweats.  

Strech marks?: Just old preggo battle scars, nothing new. 

Sleep: Still sleeping well for the most part, can still sleep on my side/belly like normal.  Plus, the horrible ligament pains haven't started yet, which I'm SO thankful, as with Miss A's I was having them very badly from the very beginning. 

Best moment this week: I felt a flutter over the weekend.  
 
Movement: Not so much that I'm able to feel it, but I know he/she is moving around in there. 
 
Food cravings: At first I just wanted sweet candies.  Now it's more fruits, veggies, and cereal. 

Gender: Unknown. 
 
What I miss: Nothing yet. 

Labor Signs: Def not.

Belly Button in or out? No change.

What I am looking forward to: My monthly check-up next Wednesday! 

Weekly Wisdom: Hmmm...nothing is actually coming to mind. 
 
Milestones: Making it through the 1st trimester.

So exciting to get past the 12 week mark, I love what the next trimester brings... flutters, kicks & FINDING OUT :) YAY!

My Aunt always has told me about the Drano test. I've never tried it though???

Congrats on getting the 1st trimester behind you! My old boss did the ring test on me and it said my first would be a boy (which was right) and the second would too - wrong there, but I wasn't pregnant with Abby then, I was pregnant with Noah when she did it.
The Chinese test was right for me both times.
