12 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 12 weeks today.

Size of baby: The baby weighs about 1/2 an ounce, and is about 2 inches long (crown to rump)... about the size of a lime.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm not really sure, I haven't weighed recently.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but I really need to get some soon.

Gender: We should be able to find out in about 6 weeks. Sometime in mid May. I can't wait. :-)

Movement: Not yet, its still a little too early.

Food Cravings: None yet. Just whatever sounds good at the time.

What I miss: Sleeping through the night.

Sleep: Not sleeping very well. I have to get up at least once during the night to go to the bathroom and I don't seem to be sleeping very soundly. Still very tired in the afternoon and evening.

Symptoms: I'm still feeling nauseous off an on, but its mostly in the evening now and I do think it is getting much better. I feel very tired in the afternoon and evening. I am having to go to the bathroom a lot more these days.

Best Moment this week: Enjoying a beautiful weekend with friends and family and feeling pretty well for the most part.

What I am looking forward to: The second trimester, when everyone says I'll start to feel better. I'm also looking forward to my next Dr. Appt. on Apr. 12th (my 30th birthday), when we'll get to hear the heartbeat.
