12 Weeks


How far along: 12 weeks

How big is baby?: The size of a large plum this week.

Total weight gain: At my appointment Thursday my Dr. said I had gained about 1 1/2 pounds. She said at this point I should have gained 3-5, so I'm a little behind but that my weeks of being really sick all the time probably slowed my gain. This is the first time EVER that I've been told I hadn't gained enough weight... it's a really weird feeling after spending the last 15 years of my life being told I weigh too much and constantly working to lose some weight.

Maternity clothes: No, but I was on vacation this week, which means a lot of sweatpants, "fat jeans" and other loose, comfortable clothing... I'm dreading Tuesday morning when I have to put back on my dress pants... it could get ugly.

Best moment of the week: Hearing my baby's heartbeat again. It's nice and strong :) Dr. told me everything looks perfect and the alien is measuring just right for where I'm at. It felt amazing because even though I have all these symptoms, it doesn't really feel like there is a baby in there... being reassured just felt really nice.

Food cravings: I love milk :) Lots of milk. Not sure why, I've always liked milk but lately I just want it with everything and it tastes soooo good. Earlier this week I really wanted a hamburger which I hope means my aversion to meat is ending. I also love water all the time. I always feel thirsty and water is just the most amazing thing ever! 

Food aversions:  Nothing really... Drew cooked onions the other day and it smelled really gross, but I don't really like onions usually anyways. 

Symptoms: A little nausea, the usual tiredness. Being on vacation meant that when I was tired I took a nice little nap. A couple of times I got this sharp, shooting pain in my cervix which kind of freaked me out a bit, but my doctor said that it was normal and that as long as the pain went away after a little and there was no bleeding than I am fine. It's good to know... but it still really freaked me out. Weirdest feeling I've ever had. 

Movement: We're weeks away from that! (but getting closer every week!!!!!)

Gender: We find out March 1st!!!! It's so close, yet so far away...

What I'm looking forward to: Hearing the heartbeat again on February 1st and then finding our what we're having just a month later! 

What I miss: Nothing really this week. It's been a good week and I've felt pretty good. Probably because I've been able to sleep in and nap whenever I get tired. 

Next appointment: February 1st
