WEEK 12 Bump Watch

(Feel Free to click on photo to read words better)

How Far Along: 12 weeks!

Total Weight Gain: Unchanged at 6 lbs. I was told that I was progressing nicely. Some women gain a lot in first trimester while some others gain more in 2nd trimester, and my doctor thinks I am in the latter group!

Maternity Clothes: Mixed in with some normal clothes and some maternity clothes. My regular shirts are getting snug though! 

Stretch Marks: Nope! 

Sleep: So-so. I don't get a full night of sleep due to my bladder. I don't nap as much as I used to either. My energy is returning. So there is some days of me feeling absolutely wiped out and some days I don't feel pregnant and always on go! 

Best Moments This Week: Feeling Baby Russ's heart on the Fetal Doppler. Baby Russ had a heart rate of 171! Then people had fun guessing the gender of our baby! The majority felt the baby was going to be a girl...and a few felt the baby was still a boy! Then I had a chance to see Baby Russ on an ultrasound again! It was so much fun seeing Baby Russ moving and playing peek-a-boo! The most awesome thing ever! 

Miss Anything: Having a headache-free week. 

Movement: Nothing major yet. The ultrasound specialist said that with an active baby I have, I may start feeling Baby Russ around Week 15 (First week of March). Can't wait!

Food Craving: I don't have major food craving this week. I was hungry for Brats and Sauerkraut so I had that for dinner almost every night this week! 

Anything Making You Queasy: My stupid headaches! Last night was an especially bad one so I ended up going to bed very early to sleep it off...and only to wake up with a headache the next morning. Boo.

Have you Started To Show Yet: Kind of! I have a belly now and if I wear a snug shirt then you can tell that there is a baby bump, but if I wear a loose shirt or sweater then you can't tell at all. 

Gender Prediction: The majority thinks I'm having a girl. There are a few that are pretty adamant that I'm having a boy. 

Belly Button IN or OUT: In. It hasn't popped out. It would be weird if that ever happened!

Wedding Ring On or Off: Still on. 

Mood: Very happy to see Baby Russ this week. :-) 

Looking Forward To: Being in 2nd trimester next week according to my pregnancy calendar! And Week 13!
