Here's a picture I took last night. Granted, it was shortly after eating, but I can't hide this bump anymore. :)
|No denying there's a baby in there now!|
How far along - 12 weeks
Weight gain - 1 lb so far. I haven't been trying to gain weight but as much as I eat, I thought I would be gaining.
Morning sickness/nausea - Smells are still a big part of what makes me feel sick. I always feel sick when I need to eat. For the most part though, I feel great.
Pain - My lower back pain comes and goes. It usually starts in the morning and then gradually gets worse throughout the day. Also some stretching and cramping in my belly. And TMI, I have been having some bad gas pains. They seriously feel like contractions.
Sleep - Sleep has been hard. I can't get comfortable and stay that way. I usually wake up almost every day around 4am having to pee. I usually get 9 hours or more of sleep a night but still feel tired the next day.
Stretchmarks - Nope.
Maternity clothes - All in maternity bottoms now. Still not in maternity shirts.If the weather ever gets below 80, I would wear my fall maternity shirts.
Food cravings/aversions - No aversions except when smelling food that just doesn't agree with me. If I'm craving something, it's best if I eat it. I was craving tomato soup for a week and went through lots of it.
Eating/drinking - I eat ALL. THE. TIME. I have to eat a smaaall meal every two hours or I start to feel sick. It's sad how little I can eat now in one sitting. I had a bowl of tomato soup the other day and felt like my stomach was going to explode from being so full. I am also very thirsty and have to have water by me at all times.
Boy or Girl - We're not finding out this time! But (not so secretly) I think it's a girl.
Lowlights of the week - back pains, being tired all the time
Highlights of the week - We got to have our last ultrasound of the pregnancy (midwife doesn't do them) and Gabe got to go with and see. It grew SO MUCH!
Anything to add - I'm getting so anxious about feeling the baby move. It is just around the corner and could be anytime now!
