12 weeks

Time is flyiiiing by!  We decided to keep track of the growing bump with chalkboard updates.  We hope our little one can look back on these one day and see how excited we were to have him or her joining our family. :)
 


How far along: 12 weeks

Total weight gain: 2 lbs.

Baby is the size of: A plum, about 2" and half an ounce.

What's going on with the babe: Baby's intestines are starting to move into the abdominal cavity, and kidneys will begin excreting urine into the bladder. Eyes have moved from the sides to the front of the head now, and ears are where they should be. Everything is in place, and baby's face is looking unquestionably human. Reflexes are now forming, and if I were to poke my abdomen, the baby would react. Fingers and toes are opening and closing as well.

What's going on with the mama: Feeling great, back pain is finally subsiding :)

Baby is a: Boy or a girl. About 3 more weeks until we find out.  Can't take the suspense!!!

Maternity clothing: Not yet.

Sleep: Pretty good, still trying to get used to getting up 3 times a night to go to the bathroom!

Movement: It's happening, but I've yet to feel it. I think. Hopefully we are close!

Cravings/Aversions: No cravings, no aversions.  Sometimes I can't even tell I am pregnant.

Symptoms:
- Still a little fatigued at times.
-lower back pain


The best moment(s) of this past week:
- Hitting the 12 week mark.  Seemed so far away when I first found out I was pregnant.
-Announcing our big secret to people at work and on face book.  Feels so much more official now :)
- Getting to see our little nugget on the ultrasound.  So spunky and dancing all over the place.  It's the best! & look at those little feetsies in the air!


I'm looking forward to:
- Seeing some more homes this weekend.  Hopefully finding ours soon!
- Scheduling a gender ultrasound soon-ish. Not for a few weeks yet, but...it's getting closer!
