12 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along:
12 Weeks
Size of baby: 2 1/2 inches long and weighs 1/3 to 1/2 of an ounce!! He or she is the of a lemon!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 6lbs since my 5 week appointment!! I probably need to slow down! In my defense, I lost more after I had Brody than I gained (thank you breastfeeding) so I feel like I'm just catching-up to my starting weight with my first pregnancy! Haha!
Maternity Clothes: Not Yet
Gender: We don't know yet, but this week I feel like we are having a boy. It's the first time I have had a boy thought this pregnancy!
Movement: I seriously think I felt movement Thursday night!! I was lying on my stomach in bed and felt it two different times. It's so hard to recognize this early on but it felt like the flutters I first felt with Brody. I text messaged a few of my friends who have had 2 babies and they all felt flutters much earlier the 2nd time so I am interested to see if I continue to feel the same feelings this week. I am almost 100% sure that it was little baby moving around! I can't wait to start feeling movement daily!
Food Cravings: Popsicles, Subway, and Cocoa Pebbles. I am on my 2nd box of cereal in less than a week!
What I miss: Having energy to do something besides lay on the couch.
Sleep: Still not sleeping well. Now I am having a hard time falling asleep. I have stayed up until 2 or 3 several nights this week. Hopefully, I will start sleeping again soon and if not, then my body will just be ready for no sleep by the time the baby is born! Ha!
Symptoms: Same as last week....Nausea, vomiting, exhaustion/fatigue, food aversions, frequent trips to the bathroom, heartburn. :)
Best Moment this week: Hearing our baby's heartbeat at our appointment Thursday! Such a sweet sound!
What I am looking forward to: Just enjoying being pregnant! I LOVE LOVE LOVE being pregnant! :)

I spent a lot of time this weekend looking at baby furniture, paint colors and fabric online. Josh and I have come to agreements on most of the big decisions! Of course they could change, but I still thought I would share them with y'all this week to see what you think. I love bouncing ideas off of other people and hearing what others think about things. Usually, I get even better ideas from it. I will post them this week! I love both "rooms" so much that I would love a boy and a girl, but we are only having one! Ha!

Have a great Monday night!

you look SO cute! you're so tiny! I crack up because I almost know that I'm pregnant before I even take a test because I seem to automatically gain at least 5 pounds the second my body realizes I'm preggy, haha! I LOVED being preggy too :)

You look adorable! I felt Jack move a whole lot earlier than Amelia Kate. I'm sure you are feeling Baby! :o) I, too, loooooooooove being pregnant. I cannot wait to see if it is a boy or girl. I always wait to find out the sex of my babies...but as soon as anyone else is pregnant, I CAN'T WAIT! haha! (Cravings ... cocoa pebbles....haha! Cute)

Traci said...

I can't imagine where you've gained 6 lbs.! hahahaha! You really look great! I can't wait to see the rooms. I love looking at that type of stuff!

Mary said...

you look so cute! when i was in the first trimester and beggining of second i took naps almost every day and on the days i did i could NOT fall asleep at maybe if you are taking naps that is why you can't fall asleep? Now that i am 33 weeks i take naps again almost every day lol (i am SOOOOO tired) and have no problem falling asleep at night, maybe its bc i am so close to the end...who knows! but i hope you get some good sleep soon!
ohh and we crave the SAME things and i am having my second boy so maybe that means boy for you! brody would have soooo much fun with a little brother!

Mary said...

forgot to add, i felt this little guy at 11 weeks! so i'm sure you are feeling the baby!

Jessica said...

I'm so happy for you, sweet girl, you!!!
