12 Weeks

Now that the secret is out I can start documenting my weekly pregnancy progression on the blog!

I'm 12 weeks as of last Thursday.


Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 12 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby T is about the size of a lime
Total Weight Gain/Loss: None so far
Maternity Clothes: None yet but I am rocking the Bella Band with my jeans because I can't button them anymore.
Gender: Won't know for a few more weeks and YES, we're finding out before the delivery!  I have a feeling it's a boy!
Movement: He/she is moving all around in there as we've seen a few times but I'm not feeling any of it just yet.
Sleep:  I'm LOVING sleep!  I feel ready for bed around 3pm.  Ha!  I do wake up usually once a night around 3-4am to go to the bathroom.
What I miss: Nothing really.  Never mind, I take that back!  Being able to order tea or Diet Coke at restaurants!  Most places don't offer caffeine free options.  Sadness  :(
Cravings: Sweets I guess.  I eat often.  Not a lot, just small amounts throughout the day.  Being hungry doesn't feel too great when you're pregnant I've learned.
Symptoms: Mostly tiredness and back pain in the evening.  The first two months I had lots of symptoms like crazy dreams, CRAZY sense of smell (it was ridiculous!  I smelt EVERYTHING!  I was like a Blood Hound just ask anyone who was around me), a little nausea and exhaustion but it's all seemed to have gone away. 
Best Moment this week: Getting released from my specialist!  It was bitter sweet because I feel so safe and well taken care of with him and his staff but it was a good sign that I'm officially a "normal" pregnant person and can see a regular OB from here on out!

My sense of smell was OUT OF CONTROL! If Troy drank a beer I thought I was going to puke from the smell of his breath...weird, I know! Also, I was very sensitive to perfume. One time when we were out to dinner we had to switch tables b/c the person sitting behind us had on too much perfume.
