Baby R2: 12 Weeks

Written 11.19.14

How far along: Twelve weeks. Getting ready to finish out that first trimester - EEK!

How big is the baby: The size of a lime. The most dramatic development for the week is reflexes, as baby's fingers begin to open and close, mouth makes sucking movements and toes curl, etc. Crown to rump, baby is about 2 inches long and weighs half an ounce.

Weight gain/loss: Amazingly still 0.

Sleep: It had gotten quite a bit better, but last night I woke up around 2 p.m. and absolutely could not get back to sleep. I'm exhausted all the time, and ended up taking a nap Saturday afternoon, as well as Monday when I was off work due to snow.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Strawberry Pop Tarts, chocolate milk. I'm really craving Mexican and glad we will get some this weekend for C's birthday. Last night I really wanted a brownie sundae but we didn't have brownie mix or ice cream at the house so I was SOL.

Gender: We'll find out when he/she is born. Right now I'm leaning toward girl.

Movement: Beginning to feel some "rolling" as I call it and I love it!

Worries: Nothing. RE: last week's worries, I'm just going to wait and see, there's no need in worrying about something six months away.

The belly: Poochy and growing "up" as I call it, but still in all my regular clothes and not showing (at least I don't think I am!)

(Skipped this week's photo)

What I'm Loving: Being pregnant. And that I've gotten the opportunity to take a few good naps.  

Symptoms: Exhaustion. Acne.

Milestones: Feeling the baby move and spreading the news!

What's different this time: I feel so much more tired!

What I'm looking forward to: Making it "social media official" next week!

Best moment of the week: Getting to spend the entire day with my favorite little boy on Monday. He is so sweet to me when his daddy isn't around - ha! I also realize that come June, I may not be able to call him my favorite little boy anymore.

  1. I'm thinking girl, too! When I was pregnant with Preslie I wanted strawberry Poptarts all. the. time! I was also much less sick with Preslie than I was with Landon.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love comments :)
