12 Week Bump Date

How Far Along: 12 weeks today.
 (You can check out my 12 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

Size of Baby: (According to 12 weeks: Your baby is about the size of a lime. Your lime-sized little one now weighs 1/2 ounce and is just over 2 inches long from head to bottom.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm not really sure, I should find out on Wed. at my 12 week appt.

Maternity Clothes: A few things here and there.

Gender: We should be able to find out in about 6 weeks. Sometime in early December. I can't wait.

Movement: Not yet, but I can't wait for this as well.

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

What I miss: Nothing really.

Sleep: Sleeping okay. I just have to get up a few times a night to use the restroom. I can usually fall back asleep pretty easy, so that's good.

Symptoms: Feeling a little better as long as I keep my stomach full and chewing gum seems to help any nauseousness I have. For some reason I don't feel so good in the evenings and I'm pretty tired as well, but I'm really hoping this is over soon. With Jackson, the "yuckiness" starting subsiding at around 12 weeks, so I'm hoping thats the case again this time. My chest has been very sore, which I never had with Jackson and I'm still having a little heartburn occasionally in the evenings.

Best Moment this week: Spending a beautiful Fall weekend with family and celebrating Jackson's 2nd birthday yesterday!

What I am looking forward to: Baby Related: Hearing the baby's heartbeat at my appt. on Wed. and hopefully feeling the baby move soon. Non-Baby Related: Jackson's 2nd birthday party this coming Saturday, the Harvest Fest at church on Sunday evening and Halloween Night next Thursday!
