Size: A prune
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +3
Maternity Clothes: Regular clothes for now.
Stretch Marks: none
Gender: Unknown until March/ April
Movement: No movement. It’s too early.
Sleep: Sleeping like a baby, up once for the bathroom.
Cravings: Still carbs. Still enjoyng a little fruit, but have to have carbs immediately after. Breakfast is a bagel, lunch is PB&J and dinner is toast, pasta or chicken nuggets.
Aversions: Anything other than carbs. I went to Grill Smith for dinner and couldn’t find one thing on the menu that I wanted to eat. Nothing sounds appealing to me.
Symptoms: Not as sick lately. I still have some morning sickness and then am usually miserable all night. Still exhausted, but trying to go for walks instead of taking naps in the afternoon. I’m usually in bed by 9pm. Headaches have also started this week.
Labor Signs: None. WAY too early.
What I Miss: Clothes fitting properly and not having to wear sweaters to hid the growing/ bloated belly at work.
What I’m Looking Forward To: Getting through our NT scans at almost 13 weeks and sharing the news with friends outside of our inner circle (they’ve all known).
Best Moment This Week: Seeing my new doctor. I felt comfortable with him and even though we didn’t have a sono scheduled, let us hear the heartbeat through the doppler.
Thoughts: After being released from my RE, I had a lot of anxiety going into this appointment. I knew this was a big one and I was afraid we wouldn’t hear a heartbeat. After a long talk with the DR, and a long lecture from him and hubs…I feel a lot better about everything. I’m more excited about this pregnancy and every day begin to feel it will last. For me, this is a big step. From day one, I’m automatically invested in the little one. But there is always the what if in the back of my mind. It’s hard to think ahead when you’ve done it a few times before and it hasn’t worked out. One of the biggest steps I took this week was signing up for the websites for weekly information and asking my mom to bring back all my pregnancy stuff that she took back last year. I’m ready to use my journal and start reading books again. We’re still not ready to share the news with anyone other than closest friends and immediate family. I think we will be ready to share after our NT scans in a few weeks.0 Did you like this post?
