12 weeks! WHAT?!
How Far along: 12 weeks. Holy shit.
Baby size: Plum
Total weight gain: -1.5ish
Maternity clothes: Still just the 2 pairs of pants, but the panel makes my nausea worse if I'm feeling icky that day. So sometimes I wear pants with a hairband holding closed the fly.
Sleep: Yeah. Sleep is good. I usually wake up to pee in the middle of the night, so that's fun...
Best Moment this week: Starting to feel better!
Movement: Yes, rarely and very light.
Gender: Still thinking boy.
Labor signs: N/A
Belly button: In.
Cravings: Sushi, spring rolls (DID NOT stay down nicely...boo), french fries with ketchup. Pineapple with cottage cheese. Kit Kat bars. Peaches/nectarines. Fancy milk chocolate.
Aversions: Pickles, the smell of other people's food, fried rice smell. Coffee smell.
What I miss: Feeling normal, pants fitting, coffee. Having energy.
Stretch Marks: No new ones.
What is different this time around: Overall feeling better than the previous 2 pregnancies. My hips have spread again (like with Dee) and I've been sleeping with a pillow between my knees. I've also been feeling better the last few days, it's easier to discern hunger from queasy.
What I am looking forward to this week: More walking? And we're having a party tomorrow, so that's fun. I have an appointment next Thursday which I am dreading because they're making me do the glucose tolerance test even though I'm only 12 weeks, because I had GDM with J. I know *WHY* I have to take the test twice, but I hate it SO MUCH. On the upside I am also going to get to hear the baby's heartbeat so that's good. I am also going to lunch with my mom next Wednesday, which should be nice.
