Survey Says: 12 weeks preggers

Friday, July 5, 2013

I hope everyone had a fan-tabulous 4th of July!  It was so nice to have a day off and eat some grilled hotdogs (see my craving below) and get a little bit of sun on this paleness!  Today I am officially 13 weeks and baby is doing so well.  I know I owed you this post yesterday but come on...I needed a vacay day from everything, even the cyber world :)  So without futher ado here ya go!

Survey says...

Written Thursday, July 4th

How far along?: 12 weeks and 6 days

Total weight gain/loss: Same as 2 weeks ago…only up 2 lbs.

Maternity clothes?:  Not just yet.  The belly band is in use EVERY DAY if I am wearing pants or a skirt.  Fortunately, I think the summer flowy dresses will help me hold out on purchasing more maternity until closer to fall.  (I am hoping.) 

Sleep: Pretty good but starting to get more uncomfortable and lots of toss and turning.

Best moment of the week: Seeing little babe in an ultrasound on Tuesday for some testing.  Little booger is getting big J

Movement: Not yet but I am feeling some MAJOR round ligament pains this week in my right side.  Great because the baby is growing, but man they can be a Debbie downer every now and then.

Food Cravings: Chester’s Hot Fries.  And I think since it is 4th of July this week my body has decided it really wants a hotdog or hamburger on the grill like whoa.

Gender: Now I am thinking girl….man these head games!

 Belly Button: Still in.

Stretchmarks?:  Nope.

What I miss:  Being able to button my pants and not being exhausted all the time.  I am hoping the 2nd trimester is a little nicer to me in the exhaustion department.

What I am looking forward to: I am ready to get out of the “have you gained a little weight” stage to “oh look, you’re pregnant” stage.

Weekly Wisdom: Little babe is the size of a plum and his/her reflexes have started to kick in so there is tons of practice in there to really kick momma’s butt when they get a teeny bit bigger.

Milestones: First Trimester OUT!

My how you have grown :)  The entire ultrasound little babe decided to use both of its feet and spring board off of me.  They are already so considerate.  Haha.
