I’m going to try and do a weekly update and picture to really document this pregnancy. So just a quick catch up on the last few weeks:
I’ve been very tired and taking more naps than ever. I seem to only get nausea when I’m hungry so I have to keep eating (darn!). We’ve give the baby a nickname to avoid calling it “it” or “Baby”. We call the baby “Bert”. Yes, I know we are weird. I have not thrown up!!! This is a huge deal seeing as I would rather do just about anything than throw up. I’ve taken a couple of picture until now but there really isn’t much to see. Here are the last few weeks:
How far along: 12 weeks
Total weight gain: 0 pounds!
Maternity clothes: I’ve started wearing the Bella Band some and I got some maternity jeans for Christmas. At this point they are just more comfortable than my regular jeans. But some of them I can still wear.
Stretch marks: None
Sleep: I have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.
Best moment of this week: Christmas!! We made the big baby announcement on Christmas day on social media. Our family and close friends have known since Thanksgiving.
Miss anything: Sushi!
Movement: None yet that I can feel. At my last dr appt I could see Bert moving around
Food cravings: I’ve had a few moments where I have wanted something very specific but nothing consistent. One morning I wanted an enchilada and then 30 minutes later I wanted a cheeseburger. I see to want food food though, not sugar and snacks.
Anything making you queasy or sick: If I get hungry I get a little queasy but this seems to be going away now!
Have you started to show yet: Only if I’m wearing clothes that really accent it. I just look thick right now.
Gender: We don’t know yet but maybe at the next appointment!
Labor signs: None!
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Looking forward to: Another short work week. Happy New Year!
Here is my 12 week picture (I’ll start setting up my tripod going forward):
