12 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 12 Weeks

Size of baby: Baby F is the size of a lime

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 3 lbs

Maternity Clothes: I'm wearing my normal clothes but using the nifty rubber band and safety pin tricks.

Gender: Can't wait to find out!

Movement: I could have sworn I've felt flutters but I'm pretty sure it was just gas. :) Can't wait for the real movement!

Sleep: Before, I've always slept like a log. But now, I seem to wake up at least once or twice every night, usually sometime between 3-4am.

What I miss: Turkey sandwiches, sweet tea, cokes and sushi

Cravings: The past 11 weeks I've been all over the cravings board. It started out with me craving Taco Bell, then to McDonald's, pizza, Mexican food and cereal. But my craving for week 12 has been Peanut Butter Oreo's. (Mike and I got into a small argument in Publix over whether I could get them or not. I won.) :)

Symptoms: I'm still experiencing a little bit of morning sickness...although its only when I brush my teeth in the morning. And a few waves every once in a while in the evenings but nothing to send me running for the toilet, thank goodness.

Best Moment this week: The 12 week Ultrasound! It was amazing to see the baby moving around on the screen and yet not be able to feel that inside my stomach. And it was very exciting to see that it now looks like a BABY (and not so much like a turtle anymore)! It seems real now!
