How far along? 12 weeks, and just about 1/3 of the way through. My math tells me a third of the way is 13.3 weeks (40/3). Could the days drag on any slower? Ha.
Total weight gain: 5 pounds since day one. I think it’s 5 pounds of cereal and ryvita crackers.
Baby is the size of: a plum. Baby is a whole 2 inches long, which is impossibly small but still…how!
Maternity clothes? I’m all over these. I’ve bought a few new things to add to my small collection, but fortunately I still fit into lots of non-maternity pieces. Basically, though I just hate clothes and want to be in my PJs all the time. I’ve actually opted to stay in on occasion to avoid pants.
Sleep: we moved into a king sized bed (hurray!) which has done wonders for us. Also, Hazel spending 5 out of 7 nights in her own bed, plus my snoogle which I love to death. It’s all been good. I’m always up 1-3 times a night for food/bathroom/screaming child.
Best moment of the week: Feeling a little flutter from baby earlier this week. Such a special moment, and yes I do know it was the baby, not gas. Shane and I also got to watch our baby during our first ultrasound! We saw Hazel at 10 weeks, and this baby at 11w6d and wow what a difference two weeks makes. Instead of full body jerky movements, we saw kicking feet and fluid arm waving (and maybe even some thumb sucking!)
Miss anything: Not right now.
Food cravings: anything salty! I’ve been wanting cactus cut nachos for a week now, so I’m hoping Shane will make me some tonight! I’m also really into fall comfort foods like casseroles and stews, but I have a feeling that is seasonal not pregnancy.
Anything make you sick or queasy? I’ve had one cup of coffee all week. I just can’t. Even tea is hard sometimes.
Symptoms: For a few days I thought my nausea was subsiding, but nope! It’s back full force. I’ve also had a lot more breakouts on my skin which is hormones/more sugar. I’m out of breath climbing one flight of stairs! I’m also much hotter than usual. Weird dreams.
Looking forward to: Annoucing this pregnancy to the internet. We were planning on waiting until we saw my grandparents in person while we were visiting in October, but 5 more weeks is just too long to wait! Sorry! But also, yay! We’re trying a few different photographs for the announcement photo and will post the ones that work out, so there may be just one, or there may be a few. Fun!
