12 weeks pregnant....

The baby is the size of a "large plum...."




How far along? 12 weeks and 3 days....


Size of the baby? A large plum


Maternity Clothes? I can still wear own clothes though I learned last time maternity clothes are way more comfortable. :) I have been wearing a few of the tees I have from last time. They are just so comfy...to be honest though I am in the wrong season and some of the clothes I wore last time have so many memories (and even smells when I got them out of the box) I can't even think about putting them on EVER again. 


Weight Gain:  I go to the Dr. tomorrow...we shall see!?!?! 


Stretch Marks? This is a touchy subject for me. I didn't have any visible stretch marks DURING pregnancy last time but once I came home and my stomach "went down" I had some. They are the same color of my skin but just weird looking...;( I used Palmer's last time and now CAN NOT STAND the smell and don't really believe in it anymore. Ha, I don't think anything would work when a little stomach grows over 48 cm. YIKES! All that to say I am trying a new kind and I couldn't tell you the brand but it does smell amazing! 


Gender? We obviously DO NOT care, we just want a healthy baby! If I HAD to choose right this second I would say boy. I asked Mark the same question and he said boy too! ;) We shall see....We are planning a gender reveal party and the Dr. appt. has been made. (Oct. 6th, as long as the baby is nice enough to show us...yes, I will be 15.5 weeks but my Dr. loves me) 


Movement? I know it's probably not medically possible but I know I felt something the other night while getting ready for bed. It was the weirdest thing to "feel it again." Who knows!?!?! 


Sleep? Normal sleep with a 15 month old in the house and I can still sleep on my stomach, dont' ask me how!!! 


Food Cravings? This time has been so weird. I didn't really have any cravings last time. Don't get me wrong there were things I loved and couldn't get enough of but this time....watch it!! Ha! I seriously  can't eat enough vegetables. I have gone to the grocery just to buy green peppers. Weird I know....


What I Miss: I would love a huge ceasar salad and maybe a small glass of red wine. ;) 


Symptoms? Tired all the time…and I am not a nap person at all. It doesn't work out well so pretty much I go to bed about 8:30pm. 


Best Moment of the Week? Reaching the 2nd trimester and getting to go to Dr. tomorrow!!! 
 (Funny story about this shirt. I saw this picture online and thought it was a really cute idea. I got the supplies and got right to work. Well the directions said it was time consuming. I was so confused as to why....until I took this picture. I am seriously loosing my mind....it's time consuming because you have write all the # backwards so they show up the right way in the mirror. Obviously I didn't do that. ;/ So mad!!! Oh well, I am not redoing it so hope you can read backwards. HA HA!)

  1. I have the same week by week shirt idea saved on Pinterest! So cute. You can flip photos so it's not backwards pretty easily. You can do it in photoshop if you've got that or on Piknik if you don't. :)

  8. Congrats. You've long ago had your sweet baby girl, but I love the detailed pregnancy progress posts. Helpful for other moms and such a great way to journal your memories. I've read some week by week books and looked up blogs because I love the baby bonding/developmental information. I just started reading a book I think blows all the others away, and great for every pregnancy, not just the first. It's called “The Wonder Within You: celebrating your baby’s journey from conception to birth” by Carey Wickersham. It’s an awesome combination of week-to-week pregnancy information, what’s going on with the baby, “Did you know?” plus health advice about what to eat, cravings, nutrition, etc, BUT also with awesome 3D/4D pictures and videos you can link or QR with your phone to and see what your baby looks like at each week stage. Even better than the typical week-to-week books, and so personal! It’s got mom stories and even a journal/note section to write your personal memories and letters to your baby. The pregnancy information is as up-to-date as it gets and it’s such a great keepsake. I want to get one for everybody I know who is expecting! I highly recommend it! TheWonderWithinYou.com.
