12 weeks!

Wow, I am such a slacker!  I really meant to get this post up over the weekend, but we were super busy.  I was also feeling amazing puke-wise (finally!) and didn't want to waste it, so we did a lot of running around this weekend.  Which was great for me, but not so great for the blog!

And now, for your viewing pleasure... a bare belly shot!  I just decided it might be neat to have one from the end of my first, second, and third trimesters so I can see how much I've grown.

How far along?  12 weeks, 3 days.

Weight gain/loss:   According to my home scale, up 0.4 pounds from last week, which puts me at 0.8 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight.  However, according to my doctor's office scale yesterday, I have lost another entire pound!  (I'm sure this will change now that my appetite is finally coming back.)

Maternity clothes?  Still just pants. 

Stretch marks?  Nope.

Sleep?  I've actually woken up 1-2 times per night this entire past week to pee.  It is kind of annoying, because each time I get up I am wide awake for at least an hour afterward!  Thankfully, I am also feeling less fatigued now, so this hasn't affected me too much.  And I suppose it is also good practice for down the road.  ;-)

Best moment this week?  Announcing this pregnancy to the rest of our friends, family, and the world!  It was so fun and exciting to see everyone's reactions.

Food cravings:  Ramen noodles and peas... sometimes mixed together, sometimes separately (but eaten in the same sitting).  Also, I have developed a major aversion to the texture of chicken.  Even now that I am no longer nauseous, trying to chew it makes me gag.

Gender:  I still say boy.  DH still thinks girl.

Belly button in or out?  In.

Movement?  Still way too early.

What I miss?  Nothing at all this week!

What I'm looking forward to:  Not having to try and hide my growing belly anymore.   I also look forward to the day when I actually start to look pregnant instead of just bloated and fat.  haha

Milestones:  Reaching the end of the first trimester!
