Holy shit balls, how did I get to week 13?

Week 13 stats:
Pounds gained to date: -4.50 lbs. That's right bitches, I gained .25 lbs!
Weeks until my next appointment: 3 weeks, 2 days
How I am feeling (on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being "dear god, I feel like walking death"): .25. Despite a wee bit of a set back yesterday morning (I won't go in to it, but it involved the expulsion of juice), it's been a great week so far!

Ok, so I was taking my belly photo (for you ERICA)
this week and I noticed something strange.
When I take it from one side, I have a wee bump. When I take it from the other side, it's gone.
T-Roy and I have discussed and determined I must be carrying the calves on my left side. That can be the only explanation for it! The photo to the left shows the bump (calves), the photo to the right shows that the bump is gone.
I know some of you have been worried about my eating because I can't keep much down and healthy food doesn't have much of a draw to me. But, I wanted to let you know that tonight I dined on legumes, wheat, dairy, and vegetables. It was wrapped in a lovely name that I call "the bean burrito" from Taco Bell. See, I can eat healthy stuff! Salads will come in time, I promise.
Speaking of healthy eating and weight gain, I've been told to gain between 25 and 30 lbs in total. I realize it's totally healthy for the baby, and that I'm 6 feet tall, but there is a small part of me that is secretly dreading the day I see "170+" on a scale. I started this at 148, so I'll be there at some point soon. I will never put the health of the Goonie at risk by NOT gaining weight. No one call CPS on me or anything!
I learned that the Goonie can start sucking it's thumb this week. A friend who is 4 days ahead of me also told me that they get fingerprints this week. So, our dreams of a fetal gang of pickpockets is sadly gone for the time being.
Thank you all for your comments, emails, and phone calls on Chip Chip. It really meant the world to Troy and I that 1) people don't think we're crazy for mourning a squirrel and 2) that you also seemed to feel our pain.
Enjoy your week everyone! I hope it is glorious.
PS, when I type this post, there are spaces and paragraphs. When I put it on the interwebs, they disappear. It's magic!

Congrats Sniffer! I can't believe how far you've come and yes I can see a bump. You are going to be morbidly obese (baby mama reference) by the time this whole thing is over! I love your blog. Miss ya, Tammy

Marijana, the commenter 2 above this (from Tammy Spence) is the one who gave me the nickname Sniff back in like 1997.

Tammy Jo, did you ever think I'd still be going by that nickname?
