Best moment this week: DH brought me flowers and card after running errands for me. :)
Miss Anything? Real cold medicine. Mt. Dew..

Twelve Weeks!!!

12 weeks! I can hardly believe it. According to some sites, the risk of miscarriage greatly reduces starting now, and according to others, I’ve still got a week to go. There seems to be no concise definition of when the second trimester starts but following a suggestion by one of my Mommy  Playbook mommas, I’m using the 1/3 rule. 13 weeks, 3 days will mark the start of the second trimester for me! Just over a week to go now. :)
How far along? 12 Weeks, 1 day today.
Total weight gain: Oh gosh.. just got back from vacation so the scale and I are not friends at the moment.
Maternity clothes? Pants and shirts now! Bye bye muffin top, hello stretchy belly panel.
Stretch marks? Still no new ones, thankfully.
Sleep: Feeling under the weather yesterday and today (and probably for the rest of the week) so trying to rest up!
Best moment this week: Hitting 12 Weeks! And still easily finding the lo’s heartbeat on doppler.
Miss Anything? Real cold medicine. Benadryl and tylenol aren’t cutting it.
Movement: None.. can’t wait!!
Food cravings: Chocolate.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not this week.
Gender: I still think it’s a girl.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Extra thirsty, bloating, random breakouts.
Belly Button in or out? Definitely in.
Wedding rings on or off? Both on.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Sleepy. This cold is kicking my butt!!

Nine Weeks!!!

I’m not going to lie, time has been moving agonizingly slow since I found out I was pregnant at nine days past ovulation (or 3w3d pregnant). Today I am nine weeks pregnant and according to a pregnancy calendar, our baby should be moving it’s arms and legs now!
How far along? 9 Weeks!
Total weight gain: None so far.
Maternity clothes? Extremely bloated but most of my clothes still fit!
Stretch marks? No new ones, thankfully.
Sleep: Can’t get enough. Have trouble sleeping through the night with bathroom breaks and can’t stay asleep much past 5am.
Best moment this week: Hopefully tomorrow, during my third ultrasound!
Miss Anything? Tequila? haha! Kidding.. not much actually.
Movement: Gas?
Food cravings: Sweets! And potatoes in any form, especially mashed!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just the occasional really bad migraine.
Gender: Hoping for a boy, but I think it’s a girl..
Labor Signs: Nope.
Symptoms: The need to drink a gallon of water a day (and all the accompanying bathroom breaks), acne, sleeplessness, sore boobs, bloating!
Belly Button in or out? Definitely in.
Wedding rings on or off? Both on.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Usually exhausted. Today has been a good day though.
Looking forward to: My ultrasound tomorrow afternoon and making it to “the double digits” next week!
Borrowed the idea for this post from a friend over at Lethal Swimmers. Thanks!!
