12 Week Bump Date

How Far Along: 12 weeks today.
 (You can check out my 12 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)


Size of Baby: (According to babycenter.com) 12 weeks: Your baby is about the size of a lime. Your lime-sized little one now weighs 1/2 ounce and is just over 2 inches long from head to bottom.


Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm not really sure, I should find out on Wed. at my 12 week appt.


Maternity Clothes: A few things here and there.


Gender: We should be able to find out in about 6 weeks. Sometime in early December. I can't wait.


Movement: Not yet, but I can't wait for this as well.


Food Cravings: None yet. Just whatever sounds good at the time.


What I miss: Nothing really.


Sleep: Sleeping okay. I just have to get up a few times a night to use the restroom. I can usually fall back asleep pretty easy, so that's good.


Symptoms: Feeling a little better as long as I keep my stomach full and chewing gum seems to help any nauseousness I have. For some reason I don't feel so good in the evenings and I'm pretty tired as well, but I'm really hoping this is over soon. With Jackson, the "yuckiness" starting subsiding at around 12 weeks, so I'm hoping thats the case again this time. My chest has been very sore, which I never had with Jackson and I'm still having a little heartburn occasionally in the evenings.


Best Moment this week: Spending a beautiful Fall weekend with family and celebrating Jackson's 2nd birthday yesterday!


What I am looking forward to: Baby Related: Hearing the baby's heartbeat at my appt. on Wed. and hopefully feeling the baby move soon. Non-Baby Related: Jackson's 2nd birthday party this coming Saturday, the Harvest Fest at church on Sunday evening and Halloween Night next Thursday!

You look so good! By 12 weeks I already looked 6 months pregnant with #2 :)

It sounds like the queasiness is *almost* gone. Hopefully by next week you won't have any of those symptoms any more!

I had HG when I was pregnant with my daughter. It was awful and it landed me in the hospital 3 times for dehydration. (I couldn't keep a single thing down!) I found that crackers really helped, and COKE. I typically don't drink soda, but it was my best friend during those first few months. I also loved the preggo pops. They at least kept me from throwing up when I was out at the store or out to dinner.

I love that you shared with us your pregnancy early on. Even though you're 12 weeks, I feel like I've known for some time and it's awesome to be on the entire journey with you! :)

I'm glad the nausea isn't so bad anymore. Hopefully you start feeling more normal soon! I hope you have a great dr. appointment tomorrow!
