First Bumpdate: 13 Weeks

Due date: July 23rd
How far along: 13 weeks (size of a peach)
Gender: ?
Weight gain: 1 lb.
Maternity clothes: No, just living in leggings.
Belly button in or out: In.
Sleep: Overall, sleeping good. I have some "off" nights.
Best moment of the week: That I'm feeling better. 
Miss anything: Doing things, haha. I've been so sick that I haven't been able to really do/schedule anything because I don't know how I'll feel.
Movement: Not yet.
Cravings: Meat repulses me -- if it's made for me (meaning, I can't see the raw meat) I can handle it (like a cheeseburger from Five Guys). But I can't prepare it. Anything fresh sounds amazing (salads, fruit, smoothies) and I could live on cereal.
Queasy or Sick: Ugh, the worst of all because it's lasting all day and I'm having to take care of two toddlers. This has confirmed, 3 and DONE.
Looking forward to: Better days.
Everyone's reaction to the news: Everyone was shocked, which was shocking to me. We had been saying "one more" so I was shocked when everyone else was so shocked. I guess they didn't expect it to be now. Well ready or not, here we go. Almost everyone is guessing a girl, we'll find out in 6 weeks. I'm leaning towards girl too, so it probably means another boy lol. I thought Harlow was a boy and Oliver was a girl....so my track record and "motherly intuition" is way wrong.
Harlow's reaction: She was so excited when we told her! She hugged my belly and immediately asked to see her "baby sister." We don't know what we're having yet, she's just highly convinced. She was only 10 months old when I was pregnant with Oliver, so seeing this pure excitement is the sweetest thing. She told several people our little secret and it went like this, "my mommy has a baby in her belly and it's a baby sister!" Lesson learned, don't trust a 3 year old with important/exciting news. She refers to the baby as "her baby" or will say "when MY baby comes." She asked what the baby was wearing and when I said he/she was naked she said "NAKED?!" She'll ask me what the baby wants to eat, if "she's" napping, and how the baby is making me feel. She is over the moon and asks every week if the baby is soon coming. She really wants a sister but I remind her it could also be another brother. So she'll say, "a baby sister or it could be a brother!"
Oliver's reaction: Has no clue what's going on.
Ages of the kids when the baby is born: Harlow will be 3 years and 10 months old (she turns 4 in September) and Oliver will be 2 years and 3 months. Yes, we're crazy but it's so fun watching them grow up together.
