12 weeks

How Far Along: 12 weeks (12w1d actually)!!!!

Size of baby: Over 2 inches - about the size of a plum. And about .5 oz.

All of the bodily structures are nearing an end and the baby's systems are fully formed. Now it's just growing from here on out!

Maternity Clothes: No. But I am definitely feeling tight in some of my pants.
Weight Gain: None so far! :)

Stretch Marks: No, not yet. But - and I'm not sure if this should go under the stretch marks section - I noticed today that I am starting to get that dark line from my pubic area to my belly button. C even saw it today, so I know I'm not imagining it.

Sleep: I'm up about once a night to pee, but sleep has gotten a little better. thank god!
Best Moment of the Week: 12 weeks! Come on that is awesome!! AND ... I finally heard the heart beat today! I've been hearing the fetal blood flow or something, but this morning, with a VERY full bladder, I heard the fast "train" - it was faint and didn't even measure on the doppler for a bpm, but it was there. So excited!

Movement: No.
Symptoms: Tired on and off - but a lot more energy than before. Boobs still a little sore. TMI - lots of gas ;)

Food cravings: Still loving meat. And I'm sooo thirsty. I had iced tea yesterday and I thought I was in heaven.
Gender: ?
What I Miss: Nothing really. Although yesterday I did miss a nice glass if red with dinner - so I drank my iced tea in a wine glass for old time sakes. :)

What I'm Looking Forward To: Seeing the ba-bee on the ultrasound on Monday. Hearing the heart beat loud and clear at that appt. And of course the bump. I can't wait.

Weekly Wisdom: I don't have any right now ... sorry.

Milestones: Week 12 is the biggest milestone! And Thanksgiving was my original date to tell people - so now it's public knowledge. Although I may wait until Monday - after the appt - to tell the FB community. Actually, I may still wait.

Emotions: I tear up at EVERYTHING! Movies, shows, commercials, music. I am also finding that my patience is very short. I'm hoping that will let up soon.
Key West is coming up next week. I can't wait. I can't wait to get away with C - eat good food, lay outside (under an umbrella of course), read books and sleep whenever I want. It will be so great! And let me say that I'm shocked that it is almost Dec!!! Crazy!
