12 Weeks


As promised to my dear friend Krystal, here is my first belly pic taken today, although Cynthia (who was taking the picture) kept making me laugh. I can't believe I'm already 12 weeks...just 1 more and I'll be in the 2nd trimester!

Here are the highlights (yes, stolen from Kelly's Korner):

How far along: 12 weeks
Size of the baby: Baby W is the size of a lime
Total weight loss/gain: -2.0 lbs.
Maternity clothes: Not yet. Most of my clothes still fit thanks to my belly bands, but I did breakdown and buy a pair of maternity jeans only because that is the one thing that it too uncomfortable for me to wear.
Gender: We'll find out 1st week of December
Movement: none yet
Sleep: I have been exhausted the past several weeks, usually sleeping 10-11 hours at night. But the past 3-4 days seem to be getting better. I'm not so exhausted (which I have heard is very typical when you near the 2nd trimester)
What I miss: not much; I thought not drinking as much coffee would be really hard, but I lean toward cold things and cold drinks, so coffee is not really appealing at all.
Cravings: Just random stuff; but once I have eat what I crave, the craving is completely gone and the food no longer appeals to me.
Symptoms: Occasional nausea, headaches, fatigue...and a growing belly!
Best moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat at the dr. office: 148 beats a minute!
