How far along: 12 Weeks!!
Total weight gain: 1lb (2 lbs total)… damn you, Halloween! Although… 0 lbs according to the doctor’s office. So… somewhere between 1-2 total.
Maternity clothes: If you’re not leggings, don’t even think about it! Fine, I do wear two pairs of maternity jeans… but only on special occasions.
Stretch marks: Lotioning to avoid such evil warrior markings.
Sleep: I’ve actually been sleeping better, but I think that’s only due to the fact that I’ve been going to bed way later this week. I’m so chronically tired. The other day, I fell asleep in the 8 minutes it takes to put C down for a nap. I woke up to her little peepers staring at me from over her bottle and her tiny finger stuck up my nose. Sheesh. NEED. MORE. SLEEP.
Best moment of this week: My cuz was here this past weekend and it was total heaven! We had such a blast and it was so amazing to see her falling in love with our girl (and vice versa). Family really is the best.
Miss anything: Hmmm… energy? I miss energy. And sandwiches. We rarely eat deli meat because of the nitrates and preservatives, but man am I craving a delicious turkey sammy… or ham and cheese. Mmm.
Food cravings: I feel like I’m starting to get back to a good place. I’ve been craving salads. (Thank goodness.) The poor eating was becoming a bit much.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I’ve been much better lately. Not too much to complain about.
Have you started to show yet: I have an impossible to hide belly bump.
Gender: Today while I was sitting in C’s nursery, which will be the new baby’s nursery, I was thinking, “I’d be pretty happy if it were a boy!” I’m so indifferent. I really have no clue. I guess my instinct is saying girl… but I can’t tell what it’s based on.
Labor signs: No, no.
Belly button in or out: Very deeply in, but definitely widening.
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Happy or moody most of the time: I’ve been good this week! Happy to have so much time to play with my cousin and love on my babes (hubs and little one). It’s been a good week.
Looking forward to: My appointment on Monday. I feel like this is such a huge milestone. I’m desperate to hear that heartbeat and feel more secure that things are going to be okay. I still feel so apprehensive about telling people, but it’s become pretty hard not to with this growing bump.
